Summary

The summer before my senior year of high school I had only one goal: to make Alden Warner see me as more than his best friend's annoying little sister. 

Finally, my wish came true, and he noticed me - in a big way. Too bad the next morning he had no memory of our night together, leaving me heartbroken and, as I later discovered, pregnant. 

For the last four years, I've been rocking the single mom thing, making sure my daughter comes first. In fact, everything was going fine - until Alden storms back into my life…as my new boss. 

His reappearance wasn't something I planned for. Add in my nosy, meddlesome three-year-old and an overprotective brother, and I'm obviously in way over my head. 

My only hope now is that I can sway Alden to see things my way. But you know what they say about the best laid plans...

The Male Narration Is Not Great!

The male main character, Alden, sounds like he is 70 years old. This is a turn off.

Awful narration!

I really struggled to get through this book, story was good, but the narration was hard to listen to. Bad southern accents, the lead Male only in his late 20's , early 30's sounded like and old man and didn't read the right emotion when he read his part.

Loved the story

L.K. Farlow is a relatively new author to me and why that is , I have no idea. From the first to the last chapter she had me enthralled with the story she wove. The writing was strong and I found myself totally invested in Alden and Natalie’s story. I enjoyed the narration by Lauren Sweet but I felt that the male narrator Rock Engle did not do justice to the part of Alden, but then that is just my opinion.

There were times that I laughed and cried reading Best Laid Plans as the emotions were all over the place. However this story is totally heart warming and made me smile.
Both Alden and Natalie had a fling and no one was more surprised than Natalie when she wound up a pregnant teenager.
The chemistry between Alden and Natalie is electrifying but will Alden be able to forgive the secrets and move forward with Natalie?

Unoriginal and bad accent

As a southern lady myself. This is the worst southern accent I’ve ever heard. The storyline is predictable. Overall waste of time read.

Over descriptive of trivial details

The writer spent more time detailing insignificant parts, while only touching on deeper issues. I knew more about what the characters had a meals then their relationship or mindset. Also the readers made the female leader character so whiny that it was hard to keep going. Could have done a lot more with the Characters for sure.

Loved it but...

Alden was Natalie's brother's best friend and four years older than her. She had a secret crush on him for years and tried to get him to notices her. When he did, it ended with him not remembering and her becoming pregnant at 17. To protect him, she lied to her family. She never told Alden about his child and he moved on with his life not knowing. When he enters her life again, it's time to fess up. But, how will he take it?

I loved every character in this book and the story. The little girl was the cutest thing. I did find Alden to be a little harsh on Natalie. I'm usually the first person to hate when a girl keeps secrets like this but she did have a good reason when it came to their age. I mean look how people reacted four years after the fact just imagine what it would have been like at the time. I felt like he blamed her for stuff his ex did and that really wasn't fair to her. And he never did understand how she was protecting him even when his own father told him how it was. But I still loved him and this book.

I didn't really like the narrators though. They kind of ruined the book. Maybe just read this one.

Loved the story!

I really love the story, and Lauren Sweet is the best. I like Rock Engle but could not handle him doing the baby voice. He reminds me of Bobby Boshay from water boy!

Good surprise baby story.

<strong>Sweet second chance romance </strong>

4 yrs ago, Natalie had a one night stand with her brother’s best friend, Alden, except he didn’t remember a thing! He returned to college, got a gf and moved on. Natalie got her own surprise. Now he’s back and Natalie has to share her secret...how will Alden react? This is a sweet story but sometimes it reads as an outline. That said, I still enjoyed it.

Sweet Story!

Cute story. Sweet story about second chances after some young mishaps.

Narrators were good. Lauren Sweet did a great job but the male narrator was a little hard to listen to at times.
