Publisher's Summary

As the sole heir to her family’s banking empire, a lot is expected of Madison Prescott. Falling in love with her childhood friend Ana Perez was not in the cards. As Madison’s father puts it, “A gay daughter? Married to the maid’s daughter? Running my company? Over my dead body.”

By the time George Prescott dies, it’s been 15 years since Madison and Ana were ripped apart by his lies. They haven’t spoken since, but Madison has spent every minute waiting for this day to come. Unfortunately, it turns out time doesn’t heal all wounds. Why was Madison willing to give up everything in the face of her father’s threats, and why can she never tell Ana the truth about what really separated them?

Caught between a present they can’t trust and a past they can’t forget, Madison and Ana must decide if this is their second chance, or their final heartbreak.

10 STARS!!!!

Finally another Elle Spencer novel. Then to see Lori Prince as narrator... I was super excited for this book and it did not disappoint at all. Just when you thought you knew what was going to happen boom (literally). Another amazing book by Elle Spencer after a long wait. I’ve listened to Casting Lacey at least 5 times and purchased a physical copy. The same will probably happen with this one. Again Lori Prince never disappoints. Great narration

Refreshing

I’ve always loved the combination of Elle Spencer at the keyboard and Lori Prince at the mic, so it should be no surprise how incredible this audio book was. I usually rate the books to which I listen but this one was so good I had to include an actual review. And, if it were possible, I would give this one 6 stars!

Nice

At first I wasn't into this book but then there was a twist and I just had to see how this story played out. Not bad. For me the curve ball changed this from a 4 star to a 5. It took a bit to losing for her to get it together and stop complaining, but the book still turned out ok.

Great Book! Fabulous Performance!

I loved all the characters and the story. L Spencer wrote a wonderful book. Lori Prince did a fabulous job of interpreting each of these characters and giving them their own personality. I enjoyed listening to this thoroughly and I look forward to the next one.

Great Story, Disappointing Narration

I listened to this book but almost wish that I had ordered the Kindle version and read it instead. I enjoyed the story very much. It was typical of many romances -- found love, lost love, angst, rediscovered love -- a formula that works for fans of this genre. Elle Spencer did not disappoint on this front. If found the main characters -- Maddie and Ana -- easy to like and I felt as though the 'reader' (or in this case listener) got to know the characters very well. The big disappointment for me was in the narration each time Ana's mother spoke, The accent adopted by the narrator for this character (who was from Mexico) was about as far from a Latina accent as one could imagine. Each time I heard her speak, I pictured someone from the Caribbean, as (to me) the accent was much closer to a Jamaican or perhaps even Haitian accent than Latina. Not the end of the world, but when listening, this is an important aspect of the story telling. I think it would have been more effective to use her normal accent than to use an accent that did not represent the character's true nationality. Lori Prince is a good narrator and this is the first time that I have had an issue with her narration. All of this aside, I would highly recommend this book and I plan to download the Kindle version to read. This is my second read by Elle Spencer and I plan to read her other books in the near future.

Beautiful but heartbreaking

I really enjoyed the story of Anna and Madison. But it totally broke my heart. But that's what really makes a good story for me I guess I enjoy the angst. I'm glad it had a happy ending but I think the struggle was too long LOL but I did understand Anna's grief and pain. The only thing I didn't like was we didn't find out how Scott's parents took it.

Worth the wait

I have been waiting to listen to this audiobook since it first came out. I just finished it and I must say Elle you have done a fabulous job with creating all the people in this book. I was instantly drawn to Madison and how she looked at the world. Each new person introduced added to the overall story. This is the first book where I have truly hated someone and GP was worthy of all the hate that could be found. I love this book it goes right up to my top ten list. Can't wait for more beautiful gems like this for this Author.

Didn’t expect anything else!

Elle Spencer is just Elle Spencer. She makes you laugh, she makes you cry, she makes you tingle all over and suddenly go angry out of nowhere.

I thought she reached her high with “Casting Lacey” - but I know better! Seldom have I encountered an author who can keep up their success with every book. Well done! Absolutely loved it!

And Lori Prince was the perfect choice for narration. It was wonderful, totally believable and ended way too soon!

My Favourite Lesfic Ever

I absolutely loved this book. It wrapped me up in a cocoon and I felt like I was a part of it.

The story was so in depth and there were so many twists and turns I didn't know where it would end. This is isn't always the case with lesfic books, where often they are lovely, but predictable.

Elle, I loved Casting Lacey, but this book has truly made you my favourite lesfic author.

The narration, as always by Lori Prince, was wonderful. She brings the story and characters to life.

I'm so sad I've finished listening to it. Hurry up and write the next Elle Spencer!
