Summary

Reality is overrated.

Exhausted single mom Daisy Garner is shocked when her blog about life with Darling Husband and Baby Delight in their charming Victorian home brings a national talk show to her door.

Amazing! Except she made the whole thing up.

Panic! Now she needs to borrow a Victorian house and find a man to play her fake husband on TV.

Travis O'Hare steps up for the role, as long as she'll marry him for real. He wants their son to have the stable home life Travis never had.

But before the wedding can happen, Travis and Daisy have to get through the interview with a ratings hungry host and a slick producer with ties to Daisy's troubled past. When a winter storm traps them all, it begs the question: can two people pretending at love finally discover the real thing?

Sometimes you have it all and just can't see it!

In this beautiful story Daisy Garner came back to her hometown of Clover Park to raise her baby boy and get her life together while having the support of her family and the baby's father, who happens to be the brother of her sister's fiance. While Daisy is struggling with everyday life as the mother of a not so easy Bryce she decides to start blogging about life with her baby and her oh so perfect life when she's not waitressing at her family's restaurant. When a talk show asks for an interview because of the popularity of her blog she's so excited she doesn't think the situation through. She doesn't have a perfect anything and she's scrambling to try to pull off an epic act and fool the world. Travis in the meantime is happy to play along but his act come with stipulations. He wants them to be a family and this may just be the way to reach that goal but then again maybe not. With Daisys ex thrown in and all kinds of obstacles can these two people overcome it all and find a way to love and live together. Beautifully narrated and full of laughs, fun and sweet and sexy moments that will keep your ears and heart happy. This series is quickly becoming one of my favorites!

I love this Audible!

I love this book by Kylie Gilmore. Charles Lawrence does a fantastic job with this book. He had me falling in love with Trav from the beginning. He did a fabulous job with Daisy’s story.
The book is all about Daisy who is a single mom that writes a blog. In this blog she makes up thing that are not true like where she lives and the great husband and kid she has. Travis is trying to be a great father to his son and get Daisy to marry him. Until a TV show want to do a show on her and she needs her darling husband that she has made up. he uses this as a way to get what he want or at least he try. Will it work out? Will they get married? Can they keep up with everything for the show?
Get this amazing book to get all the answers. You will not be disappointed.

Combines Family & Romance - a true winner

AudioBook Review
Stars Overall 4 Narration 4 Story 4

Adding a touch of fantasy, or wishful thinking, to a rather mundane and settled life is what’s expected from Daisy, the younger now reformed wild child of the family. She’s made huge changes in her life, now a single mother she is dedicated to her little boy, and only wants to make his life secure. When her blog about family, relationships and her ‘perfect’ life takes off, and she’s fielding inquiries from a television show, it’s time to face the realities. An absent bad-boy fathered Bryce, and he had shown no interest in a relationship, let alone a family. But, things change, and Travis has grown up: or has the opportunity to be on television provided the needed life change, for now.

Gilmore manages to use the deepest desires of Daisy’s heart to make the story take flight. Imagining what could be, if detailing them as what is, hurts no one, really. But, while she’s not looking, those things start to fall into place. Travis wants another chance: he’s good with Bryce (if more than occasionally overwhelmed), he seems to be committed to doing the right thing, and ….he’s there right in front of her.

I loved the progression of their relationship, the obvious affection showed by Travis to both his son and Daisy, and the ‘all in’ approach that is shown by both Daisy and Travis to the whole topsy-turvy world of parenthood and family. No one is ever quite prepared, and the ability to be honest in the confusion allows them both to reveal their own feelings as they relate to the future, their future and intentions. Great growth in both characters, some funny family dynamics and, of course, the whole façade that brought Travis back into Daisy’s life.

Narration for this title, like the first, is provided by Charles Lawrence. The continuity between the two books using the same narrator is a highlight: voices established in The Opposite of Wild continue here, with new moments and development that allows a seamless listen through the books. Never over-acting for female voices (a HUGE pet peeve), Lawrence manages to balance the more feminine delivery and speech patterns while still not imitating, and the perspective from the men is clear and distinct.

A wonderful series full of moments of heart, heat and smiles: sure to please romance readers looking for a story that combines family and romance to come out on top.

I received an AudioBook copy of the title from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions and expectations are my own responsibility.

Daisy HAS it all

What a fun book to listen to! The storyline was great, there were enough twists and turns to keep it interesting, the characters were well developed, the humor, especially with Gran, was really good, and there was plenty of sizzle between Daisy and Travis. Even if Daisy couldn't do it all she could have it all once she figured it out with Travis, and wow it took her long enough!!

The narrator did a good job with the many characters in the story. He made it easy to stay interested. I would listen to more books done by him.

I was provided a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions are my own.

Daisy and Travis

Daisy has always been the family screw-up. She’s the one that never followed the rules, and usually got caught. And now she’s had a baby.

Travis was always his family’s wild child. But when he finds out he’s a dad, he steps up and shares the responsibility of raising his son with the baby’s mother. He’d like to make them all a family, but Daisy doesn’t want that. Until she does – at least for a little while. And then things get a little crazy…

Kylie Gilmore has written an entertaining story full of humor. Daisy and Travis could be any young couple, except they get into some of the funniest predicaments. Their families are very involved, and all of the characters are very well-defined and will make you laugh. These are responsible people in the community, with lives and careers.

If you’ve never read stories by Kylie Gilmore, what’s taking you so long?

Charles Lawrence does an amazing job with all of the voices in the audio version of this book. This is a fun one, so enjoy!

Fun crazy ride

I really enjoyed Daisy & Travis story. In it you get more on grandma and the rest of the gang. Max was a added twist that made you want to smack someone now an then . I feel like the narration was smoother in this one . Can not wait to see what happens in the next story of this fun group of people

Another Cute, Funny & Sexy Story

I received this audibook free from the author to listen to and leave an honest review. I also purchased the ebook because the series is so enchanting. This is the second in the Clover Park series and is just as cute, fun, and sexy as the first book. Daisy is a single mom of baby Bryce and is trying to provide a good home for him. So she decides to make up a loving husband and happy family for a blog that she writes, and it blows up in her face when a talk show host shows up. Now she has to find a real/fake husband. Travis wants to do it but he has a condition...she must marry him for real. This is so cute and funny I laughed out loud! There's also some steamy romance that just fits the bill. I do love Kylie Gilmore's writing because she has wonderful, relateable stories that are good clear pictures, along with excellent characters and great scenes. I also like Charles Lawrence, the narrator, because he has wonderful voices for the characters too.

LOVED It!

Any additional comments?

This is a great book; this is the second book in the Clover Park series and is written by Kylie Gilmore and narrated by Charles Lawrence. Daisy Garner is a single mom and is shocked when her blog about life with Darling Husband and Baby Delight in their charming Victorian home brings a national talk show to her door. The problem is she made the whole thing up. Now she needs to find a Victorian house and a fake husband. Travis O'Hare steps up for the role, as long as she'll marry him for real. He wants their son to have the stable home life Travis never had.

The narrator Charles Lawrence did a wonderful job with this book. He did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to in one sitting and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end.

If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.

A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

Quirky romance!

Where does Daisy Does It All rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of my very favorite comedic romances.

What other book might you compare Daisy Does It All to and why?

The first book in this series, The Opposite of Wild, because this is not just your standard romance. The characters are flawed but I still rooted for their happy ending.

What about Charles Lawrence’s performance did you like?

Everything! I really enjoyed the different inflections he uses for different characters, and how easy it was to recognize them as I listened. His vocal of a crying baby made me laugh out loud.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely! I listened to the first 8 chapters last night and finished the rest of the book today due to time constraints. Normally I would start and finish the audio book in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

I love the pairing of Kylie Gilmore's books and Charles Lawrence's vocal skills and I can't wait to listen to the next book in the series!
