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?

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!

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.

Disappointing

The description of the book and good reviews made me get this book. It didn’t hurt that Sebastian York was one of the performers. However, his portion of the book was small and I found Madeline Mayby’s performance stiff and lacking. I had to take the speed up to 1.5 to get through the book. Not recommended.

Beautiful story.

I enjoy this book. It’s a sweet story but so entertaining, never bored while I read/listen to the book. I couldn’t get enough of the characters even the animals especially Hei Hei. Now, I need to get a chicken as affectionate as Hei Hei.

A nice listen

This was a nice enemies to lovers opposites attract romance, with horses 🐎 I remember someone asking once. There are some steamy scenes but not too graphic if that's your preference.

predictable, poor performance, barely okay

The storyline was okay, definitely nothing great and very predictable. The performance was less than desirable. she was unable to portray the male voice as she attempted to.

Not my favorite by this author

Not terrible… But it was definitely a little cheesier than I would expect from this author.
