Ashley James was through with men. But, she was also a professional. How she ended up working for the first man to break her heart while in the middle of a nasty breakup with the current man who'd broken her heart, she didn't know. One of life's cruel jokes, she guessed. Well, the joke was on life. Her job was the one thing that made sense in her life. And, she wasn't going to let stupid men take that from her. If her ex, Nick Connor, was her client, so be it. She would do this job just as competently as she always did...as soon as she mustered the courage to get out of her car and go into Nick's office.
Nick Connor thought he'd never see Ashley James again. She'd disappeared without a trace after he'd messed up and hurt her all those years ago. He thought he'd lost the only woman he'd ever loved. Now fate had brought them back together. Only, she's ending a long-term relationship and men aren't exactly on her list of favorite people. And he is definitely at the top of her "people she hates" list. He may not know what to do, but there's no way he'll let her get away from him a second time.

An interesting modern romance about not wasting second chances. I liked the way Marla Josephs contrasts Ashley's relationship with Zack and her past relationship with Nick. Of course what seems obvious isn't and not all mistakes, despite how similar, weigh in the same. The story moves quite quickly, making it easy to listen to. I just wish the ending wasn't quite so abrupt.
D. C. Coke gives a wonderful narration and is easy to listen to.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
This was a very enjoyable audiobook to listen to. I was intrigued from the beginning The story was believable and I felt that it progressed at a good pace.
Ashley is a good strong character and I totally agreed with the way she felt about both her current ex, Zach and her past ex, Nick. Very different cases of cheating.
Nick, Ashley, and Zach. Ashley was betrayed by Nick then Zach but she is strong and has rebounded from both. But her history with Nick is flawed and she has to discover the real story before she can move on. Who does not like listening to D C Cole? He can tell a story.
I got this book via audiobook boom.
Yes. It was a quick and sweet second chance romance
I liked the fact that the main character Ashley didn't just jump from one thing to another. She allowed things to rekindle and play out and it felt natural.
Nick, because DC Cole's voice just fit his character well. But he performed all parts wonderfully.
The second time around.
This was a sweet story, the characters were realistic and likable. I enjoyed the slow and steady blooming of a rekindled relationship and the fact that things flowed naturally between the characters and the story overall. The narration was well performed and it was a quick listen. I received this audiobook for free from audiobook boom for my unbiased review.
It was so nice to get Nicks story. Ashley an old girlfriend of Nicks reappears in his life. And all he wants is a chance to write a wrong she never gave him the chance to do when they broke up. Fun story and nice revisiting of some other characters from the series. Narration was very nice.
"An Angry Ashley Will Tell You About Yourself!"
This audiobook is everything that a lighthearted contemporary romance novel should be! Ashley James and Nick Connor were first friends and then high school lovers. Ready to head off to separate colleges Nick gets caught with his pants down, Literally! How thoughtful that someone captured the moment for all prosperity. When the picture is texted to Nick, this top jock is in the race of his life to get to Ashley before the infamous picture. Unfortunately, for probably the first time in Nick’s life he loses.
Years later it deja vu, all over again when Ashley’s live in boyfriend turns out to be a serial cheater and Ashley’s officially out for the count.
Of course, that’s when fate brings her first love back into her life. What I really like about this story is that Ashley is wounded and she makes no bones about the fact that she’s angry with both men and she’s not going to just get over the betrayal, but she’s intelligent enough to discern the moral differences between the two men.
This audiobook is narrated by D. C. Cole, he has a gruff voice but his range of conveying emotion for both male and female characters was awesome and I actually found his reading to be soothing! The production quality is clear throughout this audiobook.
This audiobook was given to me to me at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review, thanks, Audiobook Boom!
"I Wanted To Listen From Beginning To End"
Yes, that's right, I would listen in my way to work, during my lunch break, and on my way home. It was hard to press the stop button. I really enjoyed the two main characters, Ashley and Nick. Although, I have to admit, I had to warm up to Nick due to things that happened in the past. I enjoyed every minute of this story!
"2nd Chance Romance."
I enjoyed this book from start to finish. The characters were well developed and the female character, Ashley, was a strong independent woman. I was easily drawn in to their history and felt both of them had heartbreaks interfering in their lives. The story moved along at a good pace and kept me interested. The narration was well done by D. C. Cole and really embodied Nick especially. I am going to seek out and listen to more work by both author and voice actor.
Very entertaining, engaging and enjoyable story. Even though this is the 3rd book in the series, it can definitely be read as a standalone book.
Steamy romance, betrayal and forgiveness all rolled into a second chance at love story.
For a shorter story this was a really good one. The story flowed easily not forced like so many shorter stories. The relationship between Nick and Ashley progressed naturally. Believable and likable characters with a realistic story. Nick is determined to get back the love of his life. You couldn't help but root for Nick and Ashley to work it out. A final HEA in the future, maybe?
D.C. Cole did a really good job with the narration. Nice voice. Clearly spoken. Nice even pace. Perfect voice for Nick. Good character voices. He made the characters and story come to life. Very enjoyable

"Couldn't stop listening..."
I received this audiobook in exchange for my honest review thru Audiobook Boom.
I recommend this as it was a great way to pass time.
"Great contemporary romance"
I really enjoyed listening to this contemporary romance. It was interesting, captivating, and hard to put down. The story progressed at a great pace and the characters were believable and interesting.
Ashley meets her Ex-boyfriend ten years after he broke her heart. Her current boyfriend has cheated on her with multiple women and she is through with man in general. They cannot be trusted.
Nick lost the only girl he has ever loved by making a huge mistake. He got drunk and let things get out of control. Someone took a pic and sent it to Ashley and she never saw him again until now.
The narrator did a great job bringing the story to life. I really enjoyed listening to his voice.
The characters were well developed and the story flowed well.
