Publisher's Summary

An enriching story of family ties, broken hearts, and second chances from New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst.

When Ethan Bishop returns to the Hudson Valley, his body and spirit are a little worse for wear. As a former Special Forces paratrooper, he saw his fair share of conflict, and he came home with wounds, inside and out. At his sisters’ B & B and farm, he can keep all his pain at a safe distance. But quiet time isn’t easy when a fiery woman explodes into his life...

It’s business - not pleasure - that brings Manhattan PR agent Mia Thrush reluctantly to the farm. Tightly wound and quick tempered, Mia clashes immediately with the brooding Ethan. Everything about him is irritating - from his lean muscles and piercing blue eyes to his scent of sweat and musk.

But as the summer unfolds and temperatures rise, Ethan and Mia discover how much they have in common: their guarded histories, an uncontrollable desire, and a passion for the future that could heal two broken hearts. But will their pasts threaten their fragile chance at a brand-new future?

Wonderful story

Loved this story, it left a smile on my face at the end. I dinked the performance because I am not a fan of Madeleine’s voice, especially when she’s doing a male’s voice. No feeling.

Sweet book! Stormy love with great weather due!

OK, there were so many parts that had me chuckling. Hey Hey the chicken for one. I can always count on Jennifer to make me laugh, and even swoon a little at her real, intense and realistic guys and their dialogue. And, ya can't go wrong with Sebastian and Madeleine! I really liked the uniqueness of this book.. and how they both were willing to compromise at the end. It's a good read, er, Listen!

This is my first Jennifer Probst book

And I loved it! Such a sweet story about a Special Forces warrior who is wounded - physically and in his soul - and the woman who makes him whole again. Loved the narration too!

Fun, Breezy Read

This was a sweet romance. No real danger or intrigue but a strong heroine from beginning to end and a lovable Alpha. I love that about Jennifer Probst, her female characters fall in love but they don't go stupid as soon as they do. They remain capable in business and love. Mia, although she was a bitch to Ethan Bishop when she met him because she was having a bad day and took it out on him, I still loved her and how she helped the local town business community and found her real niche and a life. Ethan is swoon worthy, ex-Special Forces/Hollywood bodyguard, strong of character, a bit damaged and guilt ridden. He jumped to conclusions about Mia but once they talked and straightened out their misconceptions about one another the heat and eventually the love was right there. And thank goodness she ate a cupcake. Listen and you'll understand.

Loved the close family aspect and both Mia and Ethan being the honorary family for Chloe, the candidate for mayor of New York daughter. She was the reason Mia was at the B&B horse ranch and she was a more of a rebel without a cause kid but in a good way. This novel leads right into the next one A Brand New Beginning that definitely has a more friends/lovers to enemies feel to it with Ophelia and Kyle. This was a nice listen and Sebastian York is narrating and we all know his voice is smoking hot. Madeleine Maby did wonderful female narration. I really love the scene where Mia sees Lion King for the first time. LOL! Awww, she's so sweet. Disney movies can be rough.

Oh and you have to listen just to find out about Hei Hei, Wheezy and Phoenix. Definitely an Animal Farm that you can grow to love and a love story that goes down smoothly.

Terrific Story, Bad Female Narrator

This story was terrific, heartfelt and funny! It was the female narrator that kept pulling me out of the story. Sebastian York was great as always but Madeleine Maby's voice is really bad. I almost stopped listening but the story kept pulling me along and I gritted my teeth and listened as the female lead read her part of the story. Just beware of her narration and you will really enjoy Jennifter Probst story!

The Start of Something Good

This was a good story; it was cute and sweet but not fluff. These characters dealt with relatable issues, and I love how the author allows the characters to be honest with each other about their feelings and relationship. The conflict was something that readers can relate too and not like most books where it is trivial, and it leaves you wondering why the characters are making an issue out of something that can be corrected in less than 2 minutes.

The Start of Something....

Well you have Sebastian York to listen to so that right there is a positive. Although I have to say in this story, Sebastian seems a bit tired. Like maybe he's narrated one too many romance books in a row or something. But it's still nice to hear him. Madeline Maby- also Grace Grant? voice? was ok. Her voice gets a bit irritating sometimes. This has about 3 different story lines happening in it. You've got Ethan's, Chloe's, and Mia's. Nine hours is way too long. The book started out very slowly- I almost stopped listening. I stuck with it though. I don't think it would've been so slow in the beginning if a lot of the backgrounds had been shortened and just gotten going with what the book was really about. Of course there was sex. I fast forward after the first couple of those scenes cause it gets boring listening over and over again about it. There was push and pull with Mia and Ethan. She really does not start out as a likeable character at all. A snobby, bi**** actually. She gradually eases up a bit. Ethan is quite likeable as are his sisters. Overall, not a bad listen. Just too long.

Story Better than Narrators

Sebyo kinda phoned it in this time. Who mispronounces “Han Solo” as “Hann” (rhymes with hand)? And the female narrator’s male voices were pretty awful, especially in intimate scenes. The story itself was quite good though.
