Publisher's Summary

When Jackson St. James decided that six weeks in Vermont's Green Mountains would help him get his life together, he didn't anticipate replacing his craving for whiskey with a craving for his alluring new landlord, Gabby. Now, instead of prioritizing his sobriety and the resolution of the lawsuit threatening his business, he's making excuses to spend time with the spunky young landscaper whose candor is more than a little addictive.

Gabby Bouchard refuses to let her pill-popping mother and unreliable baby daddy turn her into a cynic, so she doesn't fight her attraction to her enigmatic new tenant. Although Jackson's smile rarely reaches his eyes, his generosity and dependability make her willing to overlook his demons. But once she convinces him to give in to temptation, Gabby's jealous ex threatens to disrupt the life she has built for herself and her son.

With so much at stake, Gabby and Jackson must decide if love is worth the risk.

Worth Reading!

I was convinced I had covered this series but was happy to find I hadn't. I enjoyed this very much, as I do most of Jamie's books. The only con for me was having a male narrator all the time. Men just can't get female voices! Otherwise just great.

Vivi

It drove me crazy that the performer was mispronouncing Vivi’s name. You’d think he’d be sure of the pronunciation! But other than that, I loved it!

Great Finale!

Narrating, not so great. Not consistent to the other two books in the series. Voices were pretty corny too.

I read to the end

Tempted many times to STOP...as the situations and what constitutes conflict were so NOT realistic. Social opinion on addiction recovery was set back at least 50 years, and the part of Our Hero struggling with an alcohol problem seems to have been written by an alcoholic in denial: " Doc says that someday I will be able to enjoy an occasional drink" said no addiction therapist EVER. Still, I read on. One reason was the possibility of a really good twist to bring it all together: the characters were SO picky and easy to call anything a real problem, I wondered what would happen that would appease these people and make it OK for boy meets girl to call it happily ever after. But instead of a twist to make them ponder deeply and realize love trumps all, they just copped and said, "OK." It seems the author got tired of making nothing into something and put them together. Another reason I stuck with it was the unbelievable character of Jackson. This guy was like your best gay guy friend turning heterosexual! He not only talked about feelings and relationships, he built swingsets and fixed things AND had sex with females, but not excessively. I was willing to go to impossible land with Jackson! *wink* OK it was a fun story in places.

Beautiful story, but poor choice for performer

And I have really enjoyed all of the St. James stories . But the performer on this one does not have a good range for female characters. His voice for females makes them all sound like Drag Queens. Which is a bit creepy considering that half the story was a female. I almost stoped after hearing a couple of his female voices. I’m glad I stuck it out because the story was well written.

A Twist on the Cinderella Story

Loved the story so much that I have listened to it twice in the last few months. It's a twist on the Cinderella story but here even Prince Charming has problems.

Great story; narrator not so good

The 3rd in a series of books... should have used the same narrator that was used in the first two. This guy couldn't even get one of the main character's names right!

Voice

I liked the book , but I feel it would have been better if the the woman's part should have been narrated by a female voice

Completes the Saint James Journey

This is the third in the Saint James trilogy. I'm writing this review to cover all 3 of the novels.

What I enjoyed most about them all was the way that they all linked into each other neatly. The stories continued into the next novel even though we had had a traditional conclusion. Only Gabby transpired to be the newcomer to the clan.

However this finale was more heavy going than the others. Covering deep topics like substance dependence, single parenting and step parenting among others. So the narrative wasn't an easy one to hold onto. I felt that this story was 'tidied away' too quickly and glibly, given that there were law suits, man management and big business stories thrown in too. Another 4 chapters seem necessary to flesh out more details and tidy sections away.

As I'd listened to these stories back to back, I was a little discomforted by the change in narrator. It made sense to do so, but I confess that I didn't like David's 'new' voice on this recording, but on the whole, both narrators were fine. The novels need to be read in the correct order, starting with Worth the Wait - David's story. These are best read all together in my opinion, as they make a lovely whole. But Jackson's story - this one - doesn't bear the weight of standing alone.
