Liam wasn't supposed to be my happily ever after. He wasn't even on my radar. He was my husband's best friend - forbidden.
But my husband is dead, and I'm alone. I ache for him, and I reach for Liam.
One night with Liam changed everything. Now I have to decide if I truly love him or if he's just the consolation prize.

"Excellent emotional story but huge cliffhanger end"
I would definitely listen again. It was a very touching, emotional story.
My favorite character was Liam. He was strong, protective, kind, and understanding.
Andi Arndt and Sebastian York are my favorite narrators separately and together they are the DREAM TEAM. I seek out books by the two of them and was the main reason I purchased this book as I'd never read this author before. They capture the emotions of the characters perfectly at all times. Their narration turns books into movies, which is amazing.
The first couple of chapters were very gutwrenching and certainly captured the mourning experience very well, in my opinion. Plus all the moments with Liam and Ara were very touching.
Loved this book and I'm DYING for book 2!!!!
"TRAGIC, HEARTBREAKING, BREATHTAKING & BEAUTIFUL"
If you're looking for a light listen then this isn't your book as it's a heartbreaking journey of loss, broken dreams, betrayal and grief as Natalie has to come to terms with the devastation of losing her Navy SEAL husband during a mission. But it's also a beautiful love story about her and her husband's best friend Liam as they grieve together, slowly become friends and eventually lovers. Liam is sexy, handsome, understanding, supportive and patient - a true hero - but he is also a Navy SEAL too and Natalie has to face the fact that, once again, if she chooses Liam history may repeat itself and she could be left alone again.
This is a very emotional story as it tracks Natalie's life as she gets the tragic news, gives birth, attends his funeral and has to piece her life back together and, even when Liam comes onto the scene, her grief takes time to lessen in the arms of a very loving and caring Liam. His interactions with Natalie's baby is also touching and, at times, funny and he never excludes the baby in their relationship. A relationship which is slow to build but wonderful to witness.
There's some interesting secondary characters, twists, sex, passion, romance, shocking drama and angst by a 'third party' and a network of friends all within the brotherhood of the SEALs. Great narration topped this tear-jerker of a story off and added to the rawness, the depth and the emotional journey that Natalie and Liam took. And the cliffhanger was a jaw-dropping OMG of an ending..... but yaye thankfully book 2 is already available.
Worth a credit? As the story opened up I really didn't think I was going to like it, not because of the talented Author's work or the narration, but because it was so heartbreaking.... however along the way I became totally invested and consumed with the characters and all the very emotional dilemmas that they faced as their feelings tentatively grew. I thought this was very creditworthy but, as I said earlier, it's not a feel-good light romance so be prepared to have your heart strings pulled.... no, not just pulled but yanked.
"Great Story Tear Jerker"
I loved the storyline. She's so endearing & her feelings were so real. I will admit I cried on a couple of scenes.
As a Sebastian York fan, he can read a telephone book & keep me hooked!
FYI, it is a cliffhanger. I can't wait to get the next book
"Great Start . GET IT"
Though some of it was predictable and unpredictable it was a great listen. Great narration with a beautiful and hurtful love story
"HOLY MOLY WOWSY WOW!!!!"
it was an extremely touching and emotional story!
I just cant compare it...this is a crazy story!
Natalie and Liam
This would be a great movie!!!
** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **
Natalie is happy, pregnant and waiting the return of her SEAL husband from a final mission...then there is a knock at her door and her world comes to a crashing end... Her husband is gone...but she still has to go on for her new baby... Her husbands friend Liam comes into her life to help her settle some loose ends and start the healing process...and more and more secrets and lies come out into the open...her husband wasn't who she thought he was..and just as she was starting to heal she gets a shocking reveal!!!
MOVING ON TO BOOK 2 RIGHT AWAY!!!!
Oh such drama and angst. Maybe a teeny bit too much. Excellent narration and a super cliff hanger. About to jump into the next book.
"Oh My Goodness!"
Downloading book 2 AS WE SPEAK! This one is a tear jerker! I was taken away with the the story. I felt Natalie's pain and torment as she tried to carry on. Liam is THE BEST! And to have Andi Arndt and Sebastian York TOGETHER is a dream!
The audio version is the perfect compliment to the print/ ebook version of this amazing story!
I don't compare it to anything except that it is a military romance genre
I have many scenes that made me laugh, cry, get angry. I brings out lots of emotions.
As mentioned before the narrator's do an amazing job of bringing the authors characters and story to life provoking a wide range of emotions. This is one of my favorites!
"LOVED IT! WILL LISTEN TO IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN!!"
The storyline, the author did a good job in telling the story.
Amazing narrators good selection.
Yes, the beginning and end. Sorry, I don't want to give to much away.
I can't wait for the second book.
wow, wow, oh how I love Liam!! And how I loved the story. And oh my the ending!! A must read or listen!
