When Phoebe and Oliver had their happy ending, they thought the hard part was over. And now, with a five-year-old daughter, they are far from the blissful hedonistic lifestyle of when they first started dating. Not one for giving up, Phoebe creates a sexy wish list: a jar where they can ask the other for anything they've ever wanted in bed - or out of it. But with distractions aplenty, will they be able to relight the fire in the bedroom?

This book was very well written but the narrator made it more fun to listen to. I never knew that I could love a Scottish accent as much as I did!! Amazing!!

Amanda Wilkie unexpectedly finds herself alone with her three children in a rambling Victorian house in London. Her husband leaves them, claiming he's just 'lost the love', like one might carelessly lose a glove. A few months later, Amanda's heavily pregnant friend, Ali, crashes into her kitchen announcing her husband is also leaving. So, after Ali's baby, Grace, is born, they both move into Amanda's attic. And when Jacqui, a long-lost friend and fellow single mum, starts dropping by daily, the household is complete.

Not as good as I thought it was going to be when I first started listening.. The story was good but it deteriorated somewhere along the way.. Very silly, superficial and not convincing. Don't waste your precious credit. Keep searching..

I listened to this book for hours! Not being able to move. It was so captivating! The characters, the story and narration were all spot on. The best thing was that I bought it as a part of the daily deals not expecting to like it as much as I did. It is definitely worth a credit. Unfortunately the author's other books didn't do it for me but this is a 10/10

I have this book a chance!! I tried listening then I stopped and gave it another go and it was still boring. The best thing about this situation is that I only spent 99p on it so I will not be losing sleep over it. My advice is to keep looking. Don't get this one.

I honestly could not finish this book. I think I was written by a teenager for teenagers even though it has grown up "bits" in it. It is a shame that I couldn't return it but trust me... Don't buy it.

Laurie is pretty sure love at first sight doesn't exist. After all, life isn't a scene from the movies, is it? But then, through a misted-up bus window one snowy December day, she sees a man whom she knows instantly is the one. Their eyes meet, there's a moment of pure magic...and then her bus drives away. Laurie thinks she'll never see the boy from the bus again. But at their Christmas party a year later, her best friend, Sarah, introduces her to the new love of her life. Who is, of course, the boy from the bus.

This was a good book to listen to but the story was not all that. It was just words put together. I was disappointed with the ending as well. All in all this is a book you can get yourself lost in but dont expect to remember a word of it when you finish.

The Bird children have an idyllic childhood: a picture-book cottage in a country village, a warm, cosy kitchen filled with love and laughter, sun-drenched afternoons in a rambling garden. But one Easter weekend a tragedy strikes the Bird family that is so devastating it tears them apart. Many years later something will call them home, back to the house they grew up in - and to what really happened that Easter weekend all those years ago.
