The one she's always wanted.
With a life in shambles, and left with no alternative, Viola Swanson must return to the place that she doesn't want to go and see the last person she positively does not want to see.
Yet, when she comes face to face with Drake Millar, all her secret feelings come rushing back, uncovering a deep, broody desire that she can barely admit to herself. But Drake is not alone; he has another taking up space in his heart, or so it seems.
Viola, however, is presented with an opportunity that she cannot refuse, that could solve all of her problems, help get her life back on track, and give her a purpose she so desperately needs.
But there's a catch. Taking the job means spending more torturous time with Drake.
The one person she can never have.

A sweet story of a high school crush that eventually worked out, despite the challenges. Nicki Gallo's performance is lyrical, matching the story perfectly.

this was a very good and interesting book in my opinion
I normally don't listen to my books -- this was a new experience -- but I truly enjoyed this audio book. The story was exciting and the narration was spot on.
"So I liked it,, I mean its her Stepbrother,..Geesh"
So I was given this book for an honest opinion, this book was pretty good. Look, it is a short story about a girl that for some reason doesn't want help but obviously needs help but any who she is in love with a guy that wasn't her brother then so hey it works for me. I really liked it over all and can say that it was well written and had some really HOT scenes. I loved that his mom already knew and that she supported them. It was some mature "big girl panties" situations in the book that I really respected/ Honestly it read like a a soap opera but better. 2 thumbs up from me!!!
"Short but sweet"
Yes, it was a cute story and a the narrator was easy to listen to. The story could have used some additional details but, for the most part, I liked it.
The most interesting aspect of the story was that Drake's mother already knew and was pushing them together.
The assistant. My instinct was that she would be protective and not like Viola but they were friends as she really wanted what was best for Drake.
There wasn't a catch or hook. There wasn't really anything making Viola an interesting character.

I was hesitant with this book, step family romances are normally not my thing. This one proved different. The history of Drake and Viola in some way to me made it OK. Viola's dad and Drake's mom are married making Drake and Viola step siblings. Before their parents were married, Viola knew Drake in school and always had a crush on him. Forward years later, Viola finds herself in trouble and goes home on her stepmother's 50th birthday to find Drake with his baby daughter. Drake's reaction to his baby melted me at the start...fell for him right away. Viola becomes his nanny and the first night they sleep together. The past comes to haunt a Drake causing Viola to leave and she finds out she's pregnant. Through their problems, trust issues and the fact that they are related, this story has twists and turns. It is enjoyable and they get their HEA.
NIcki Gallo does a good job portraying this book, she is a good fit for the story.
Good, quick story. Narrator good, but it seems the story was set in Britain (knickers, bloody, university, pounds vs dollars), so perhaps the narration should have been British? Would still recommend!

First I have to say I like that we get right in to the story, no intro's just the story starts right up.
At first I thought oh no it’s another unrequited love but turns out it wasn't. That was a nice surprise.
So overall the only really thing I didn't like was there first sexual encounter. The whole wanting a baby plant your seed in me thing just didn't do it for me.
But it worked with the story so that was just my own opinion. I also wanted to smack Drake for allowing his EX back in to his life and pretty much pushing Viola out.
I was like what the freakity freak dude. I though you wanted her.
I did feel like it was a little predictable but not in a bad way. There were still some twists I wasn't expecting and the scene after sexy time when his mom showed up at the apartment laughed a good one at that.
I also like the narration wasn't too hokey as some narrators can be. Over all a great fun read
Loved the book. What did she have boy or girl? Is there another book after this soon? What's the name if so? Thanks Donna
Enjoyed the story but the female narrator voice was just too "smexy, sweetish". Her voice made the story kinda hard to enjoy. I've read this book and it was much more enjoyable.
