Publisher's Summary

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Ruth Cardello puts two hearts on the line when a Boston billionaire takes a second chance on the woman of his dreams.

Spencer Westerly is his own man. He didn't need his father's money to build his wildly successful tech company - and he doesn't want to deal with the fallout from old family secrets. But as much as Spencer wants to avoid Westerly drama, his grandmother - the family matriarch - is determined to pull him back into the fold. And she's discovered the perfect lure: his college sweetheart, Hailey.

Although she broke his heart, Hailey is still the only woman he's ever loved. Now that she's back and looking as desirable as ever, Spencer is determined to get a second chance.

A lot has changed for Hailey Tiverton. The only thing that hasn't? The inexplicable pull she feels toward Spencer. When they were younger, his work was his priority. Now, he'd better be willing to prove that, this time, love comes first...

Up For Heir

Oh, this one just had me smiling my way through it. Once I started playing it I could not stop the audio. Spencer let Hailey go when they were younger and she was the one for him. He has dated many women but never anyone special. Of course, his grandmother has plans for this and soon Hailey is hired as her companion and she and her niece are living in her guest house and her niece is blossoming. Bringing Spencer and his grandmother together also brings the rest of the family together. This one was great! On to the next!

Delinda

I love the story line and I liked how the author continued cameo appearance from her other series. They are all one big happy family. Spencer was a tough but to crack but Delinda had his number and knew what he needed. I am going to listen to the next one now to see what happens next.

Great story

Delinda is one complicated meddling grandmother that means no harm. She just wants what is best for her family. Spencer and Hailey have a past. They make for a romantic loving loyal couple.

Thumbs down for Narrator

The narrator can break or make a story and this narrator wasn't good. Maybe I have gotten used to the good ones. I forced myself to listen threw the first two books, but I can't listen to anymore by this narrator.

An uplifting tale ...

Up For Heir is an uplifting tale of lost love, broken dreams and one very special little girl.  Ms. Cardello created a meeting of hearts that was not only a romance, but a pathway to healing.  The connection between Hailey and her brother was an unbreakable one.  Not even death could sever the bond they shared.  His words of encouragement were an ever present feature in the life of a woman determined to keep his memory in her heart.  Another precious bond was the one forged between a scared little girl and a blustery old woman.  The way Skye and the matriarch of the Westerly family took to each other was an emotional experience.  Ruth Cardello set out to write a romance, but she created a love story that affected many lives and helped to rebuild a family.

Great second chance romance!

This really was a great romance! After finishing the previous book from this series, I couldn't wait to find out more of Spencer's story. This really is a series that needs to be read in order since the plot surrounding the family starts in the first book. I had a great time listening to this story. Spencer was one of the focal points of the previous book which left him at a very low point in his life. I couldn't wait to find out how he was doing and hopefully watch him deal with some pretty big issues. Hailey has also been through a lot. She lost her father years ago and just recently lost her brother. She is now the guardian of her niece, Sky, and has to make that the priority in her life. Hailey takes a job as Delinda Westerly's personal assistant and her and Sky move into the guest house at her home. She has no idea that her employer is in any way related to her old boyfriend, Spencer. Of course, their paths cross and they end up spending some time with each other and quickly find out that their attraction to each other is just as strong as it ever was. I had a great time watching Hailey and Spencer fall in love all over again. I also enjoyed getting to know Delinda Westerly a lot better and found that the relationships between Delinda, Sky, and Hailey were very well done. I thought that Spencer's relationship problems with his family were dealt with very well in this book. Spencer grew a lot as a character by the end of this story. Terri Clark Linden continued to do a great job with this series. Her voices for the various characters in this series are very well done. In this book, there was a lot of dialogue from Delinda, an elderly character, and Sky, a young child, and I thought she represented all of the characters very well. I can't wait to listen to more of this series. I would recommend this series to fans of contemporary romance. There is a lot of depth to the relationships within this story and a romance that melted my heart. I can't wait to read more about the Westerly family.

This is book two in the Westerly Billionaire's ser

This is book two in the Westerly Billionaire's series. This book is about Spencer Westerly and Hailey Tiverton. Meet the handsome Spencer Westerly. You could say that Spencer is his own man. He won't tell you otherwise. However Spencer knew that he didn't want or need his late father’s money. He made it on his own and in the process Spencer built up his wildly successful technology company. As much as he can Spencer is trying to avoid any attention and all the drama that is linked to the Westerly family. Spencer is mostly trying to avoid his grandmother. His grandmother is the family matriarch. Spencer's grandmother thinks she's figured away for him to be lured back into the Westerly family drama and that just happens to be the one person he has been trying to hide from her and now it looks like he's now too late. The lucky lady or in Spencer's case the unsuspecting lady is Hailey his college sweetheart. Hailey is the only woman that Spencer has truly loved and she managed to break and shatter his heart in the past, Spencer is determined to win Hailey over again. To Spencer there has been no other woman for him apart from her. Hailey has grown into a sexy and confident woman who no doubt has other men tripping over themselves to even get her to look at them, some may even try to get her to give them her number but she's not interested, she's more interested in her job, and although she will try to deny it, Hailey's heart will and always has belonged to Spencer. No other man has ever come close to it. Everything may have changed since both of them were in College but the one thing that can't be denied is that the sexual pull and the passion that there is between them. Spencer feels that he can now put his business to the side and concentrate on giving Hailey the undivided attention that she truly deserves. Spencer is no way going to loose her for a second time. Hailey's so in love with Spencer but she's convinced that he will only put work before her. Can Spencer keep to his promise that Hailey comes before work? Can Hailey give into her feelings and learn to trust and fall in love with Spencer again. I love Ruth Cardello i so need more than 5*s
