Publisher's Summary

Enjoy this fast-paced romance by best-selling author Taylor Hart!

Scar Walker, professional football player and ex Navy Seal, only wanted to focus on getting his gym built for military vets while he was in San Diego. He didn’t want to take crap from his brother, he didn’t want to deal with a lippy waitress, and he really didn’t want random people calling him on the phone.

Shayla Castle came to San Diego to finally live out her childhood dream. When she accidentally calls the mysterious phone number left on her table while waitressing, she never anticipated it would be the handsome jerkface soldier who chewed her out that morning. It confuses her even more when the same jerkface shows up the next night and saves her from an attacker.

She never would have imagined she and soldier boy would start talking every night and she really never imagined he would convince her to let him do her bucket list together. After a hike at Torrey Pines, a helicopter ride, and surfing at Oceanside…she finds she just might be falling for this soldier boy.

When things get heated, she’s left with a choice—let go of the past or lose a new dream she was just starting to discover.

Awesome Book!

I so enjoyed this book by Taylor Hart! The Dream Groom truly is a dream. Scar and Shayla are remarkable characters. Add in the incredible imagery of San Diego plus an original storyline, its easy to love. I find it so refreshing to listen to a book that has chemistry and great character development without sex. The narration by James Fouhey was great! He added the right emotions to this listen. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator. This book is a standalone listen and part of the Texas Titans series.

So Cute!!

I loved this romance! There was not one sexy scene and I didn’t even miss it because this story is so sweet and loving it makes you all warm and fuzzy inside. I loved Scar and Shayla, they are perfect and adorable together! There was the perfect amount of humor and serious and both characters are strong and smart it makes this romance so realistic. The narration was really good! This was my first by James Fouhey and I think he did a fantastic job at bringing both characters to life! This is a super light and fun read I recommend it!

Beautiful Story!

This story is everything! This is exactly why I love Contemporary Romance: So much Love, not much drama, heartwarming scenes and a beautiful HEA. Scar and Shayla are really great together. Scar is a strong and protective man. Shayla is a strong woman with enough courage to pursue her dreams. Beautifully written, this story sits in San Diego and the scenery is so well described, that I want to visit it! The narration was really well done. James Fouhey has a very beautiful voice. I'm looking forward for more books written by this author and narrated by this narrator. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

The Dream Groom

If you are looking for a clean romance then you have found it! This book shows someone falling in love without the sex is possible and so sweet. The “code” word they use is absolutely adorable in this book, sorry can’t say any more without that spoiling part of the book. This was a nice, easy book to listen to and I will definitely be looking into more of them.

Swoonworthy listening!

Taylor Hart!!! She can write a story that catches me from the first scene and keeps me til the very end. Shayla is a waitress and brings Scar Walker, 3rd string quarterback for the Texas Titans, his breakfast. He proceeds to tell her the eggs were made wrong, eats and leaves. That night, she calls a number left on one of her receipts, and who should it be but Scar? Their relationship from there grows. Hart created such likeable character with these two that I was sucked in and wanted to see how they would work out. Scar is chivalrous and nurturing while we see the young Shayla mature with her feelings. Hart always brings in a relevant theme to her books, and with Scar, he is helping his fellow vets. I loved this back story of service and brotherhood. Adding a hint of suspense also gives the story some depth and thrills.

James Fouhey is amazing with his performance of this book. This is the first time I have heard him narrate, and I love his voice. It's warm and smooth, giving the tough Scar Walker that sexy, rough exterior a teddy bear feel. He easily transformed his voice to Shayla with a believable female voice. I will definitely look for more listens by him.
