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 .

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!!!

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.

Unexpected twists

I read in a review once that the best narrators are the ones you don’t notice. Callie Dalton and Teddy Hamilton are two of my favorite. They allow the listener to focus on the story instead of their voice. As for the story, I loved it! I’m pretty good about predicting where the pot is going but this story had a few plot twists that shocked me. I’m sure good in the form of a book but I highly recommend getting the audio version.

Great story!!

Great story full of twists and turns. There’s 1 chapter toward the end that is kind of cheesy but overall it was a great book!

plot twist

The playboy finds a good girl and settles down. A good story. The plot twist near the end was good and unexpected.

Wow!

The book details were incredibly vague so I had no idea what I was getting into. So many twists and turns but Ridge had me from the very start! Kendall’s love and devotion to baby Knox and Ridge just warmed my heart!
I’m a HUGE fan of Teddy Hamilton’s narration! His voice is so addictive! I’ve listened to many of Callie Dalton’s narrations and she’s superb! The two of them together really make a tremendous team!

More than meets the eye

I did not know what to think of this book when I was reading reviews. Some people loved this book, and some hated it. When it comes to reviews, I tend to agree with someone who has the same taste in books that I have. Unfortunately for me, the people that I am friends with and people that I follow have not reviewed this story yet.

When I started reading this, I had no idea what to think. I thought that Melissa, the woman Ridge sleeps within the beginning of the book, was the heroine; she was not. The heroine did not pop up until close to the middle of the story.

When we finally get to meet Kendall, it isn’t until Ridge has his son and he goes in for a doctor’s visit. I wish that Kendall was introduced earlier but I do get why she wasn’t. Ridge came across as a douche in the very beginning. Making bets with his friends was a bit disgusting. I understand what the bet was about, but it was not a good look for him like at all.

I loved the was Ridge’s family and friends rallied around him to help him with his son. As the story progressed Ridge turned out to be a decent guy even though he started off suspect. I loved the way Kaylee Ryan had Kendall and Ridge’s relationship grow. They did not fall into bed within their first meeting. It was a slow burn and I felt that redeemed me to Ridge even more.

I enjoyed Teddy Hamilton’s narrator of the story. This is the first time that I have listened to him and I have to say that I did not know what I was missing. Callie Dalton did a wonderful job as well.

I am really interested to see how Reagan, Ridge’s sister, and Tyler, one of Ridge’s BFF, story go. There is a lot of tension going on and I am interested to see what happens. I am also interested in Dawn, Kendall's BFF. I know that she gets her own book and I cannot wait to see what happens.
