Must Read...Loved it! Worth the credit...

I highly recommend this book and Ridge is one of my new book boyfriends. This book has all the feels in it and I just couldn't stop listening. Also, be prepared...its a tear jerker because you truly feel for the main characters while falling for the supporting characters too.

4.5 baby Knox stars!!!

I really enjoyed this story, which was a surprise because some of the reviews are harsh. But I am sooo glad I decided to see for myself. I swooned hard over Ridge. He was such a great character, even though at the beginning I was not a fan. Now Kendall I loved from the very start, she was the hardworking and sassy chick, I would love to have as a BFF. Their story is sweet and yes a little heart wrenching, but definitely worth it. I absolutely adored the narration from Callie Dalton and Teddy Hamilton as well!!!

sweet and flawed

This is my first time reading this author. I dont know how I feel. Its a very sweet..feel good but wants to be angsty story. I dont kinda-sotrta-do-dont really mind the first flip of the script. But once I let go and the baby is born....okay fine...lets go. I will say as a mother the aging of the baby bothered me..sometimes it was age appropriate and others not so much. Of course TH was narrating gold and Callie D was really good. The Lifetime plot twist at the end....major eyeroll and side eye for me. Im not angry I used a credit for this but I do think its better suited on audible escape package .

Great Book

This was a great book. Definitely a lot of unexpected turns. But it was very low angst. Not a lot of unnecessary repetitive inner monologue. A great love story with twists.

Unexpected Reality

Some of the reviews I read before reading this book were definitely harsh but I went for it anyway. I was not disappointed; this may have been an unconventional story but it was definitely a captivating story. Ridge and Kendall went on a beautiful and heartwarming journey. I adored this story.
Teddy Hamilton is well ...Teddy Hamilton and always outstanding, and Callie Dalton was amazing.

Keep the tissues close by

If you are the type of person who cries because things are sad, or cries when things are happy, then you will love this book, but keep the tissues close. You will cry tears of sadness and then tears of joy.

It was a lovely story and watching the relationship between Ridge and his little man Knox was wonderful. The fears he has at becoming a father suddenly and unexpectedly are something that most of us who have had children understand. He took it on, no questions asked. He was amazing. Then came Kendall.

She fell in love with the little man too and his father. The draw between the baby and her was incredible and really you find out why at the end of the book, where things take an unexpected turn. Not to mention her relationship with Ridge too. I wanted to be her. Every woman needs a Ridge in their lives.

I read the Amazon book reviews and can only assume on quite a few points that they weren't reading closely. The things they complained about were covered in the book, so no idea about that. So glad I gave this book at go and so happy to have read what was a beautiful story.

There were parts that seemed to be skipped over, and I wanted to slow down some parts, but speed up others, but hey it wasn't my story. I'm so glad I used one of my credits for this wonderful story.

Ridge & Knox Pulled Me In

Wow this book blew me away. I fell in love with Ridge and Knox right off the bat and Kendall was perfect for them both. Reagan and Dawn really added the extra support for this touching story. After reading the other reviews on this book I wasn't sure if I was going to like it, that is one reason why I read and make my own opinions. This book was touching, dramatic, loving, sexy, had surprising plot twists, good friends, family, and was all around a great romance. I can't wait to dive into Reagan's story next.

So sweet!

This is such a sweet and touching story and I absolutely loved the narrators. Callie Dalton is a new narrator for me and I really enjoyed listening to her. And as always Teddy Hamilton knocked it out of the park as the bad boy with a heart of gold turned single dad.
