Publisher's Summary

The first book in a new series by Lucy Lennox!

Nico:

I left my family and tiny Texas hometown 15 years ago to escape small-town gossips and to give my mom and sister the chance at a better life. But when a phone call from an attorney back home informs me that my sister passed away, leaving me custody of her newborn baby, I'm shocked out of the steady life I've built for myself running a tattoo shop in San Francisco.

The thing is: I don't do babies. And I don't do small towns. Or commitment. And I especially don't do family. My plan is to go back to Hobie just long enough to sign adoption papers, giving my niece the kind of stable, loving family I could never provide.

But the moment I meet my niece in the arms of Weston Wilde, my sister's best friend and the town's handsome doctor, my plans begin to change. Because suddenly, I see a different future. One with the very thing I thought I never deserved: a family. If only I can convince West that I'm not the same good-for-nothing kid ready to bolt when things get tough.

Weston:

There's one thing I know for sure about Nico Salerno: he was a good-for-nothing as a kid and judging by the purple-haired, tattooed punk who shows up at his sister's funeral, he hasn't changed. There's no way I'm letting him take custody of my best friend's baby.

But the more time I spend around him, the more I realize that his rough exterior is just a shell and that beneath all the tattoos is a scared, insecure man searching for a place to belong. And pretty soon I know exactly where he belongs: in my bed and by my side.

The problem is, he abandoned his family once before, how do I know that if we become a family he won't do it again?

    "Meh. It was ok."

    Lucy Lennox is a reliably average-good (but more average) writer. I still keep buying her books though! I know it’s guaranteed to be an acceptable easy listen, acting as a filler book until I get my next good one. This book (as with all of hers) is the equivalent of putting on a chick flick movie for an evening in. You know that you’ll come away feeling that you didn’t waste a credit (not fully anyway), but even a week later you will have forgotten what happened in the book. Zero lasting impact, and you certainly don’t think about the characters or reminisce when you finish ..simply move on to the next book!

    "Lightning strikes twice!!!"

    I for one will be waiting on pins and needles for the next installment of this series. So far it's as wonderful and whimsical as the Made Marian series. I didn't thing that Lucy Lennox could top the character Ganny in the Marian series but boy did she! This starts with Nico's story. I loved Nico from the previous series and Lucy nails it!!! The main characters are interesting and worth caring about. In typical fashion all the emotions are there. To hear Nico's backstory tore at my heart and made me love this character even more. If you have read the Made Marian series you are going to love this one just as much. If you haven't read them this novel can be read on its own. Well done Lucy Lennox well done!!!

    "Better than the Marion series"

    I liked the Marion series, but this is my favorite Lennox novel so far. Characters were dynamic and endearing- can't wait for more in the series.

    "Gets better each time I listen"

    So I love Michael Pauley...so much so that I have purchased almost every book he has narrated. With that said, I love Lucy so much more. I have read/listened to every book she has put out and will continue to do so.
    This book has it all...love, acceptance, stupid male behavior and a happily ever after...it's what we all want in a book. West Wilde is a super hot doctor and Nico Salerno is a colorful tattoo artist. Opposites attract and you have steamy, hot moments and amazing chemistry. Get to listening, y'all!! It will totally become one of your favorites.

    Story
    "Narrator Michael Pauley Blew it out of the Water!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Facing West to be better than the print version?

    I would have enjoyed this story as a print book, but I'm so glad I listened to the audiobook first. The performance was excellent. I'll get into that in the question specifically about the narrator.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite characters were the saucy grandpas who couldn't help meddling. They were always there to be supportive and give the main characters a kind nudge in the right direction.


    What does Michael Pauley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Hot Dayum!
    Michael Pauley is ridiculously good. Not only did he read each first-person section in character (it switches from Nico to West every other chapter), he did it with emotion, excellent timing, and recognizable voice differentiation for all the secondary characters. Even though he had a limited range of voices (everyone does who isn't Mel Blanc, after all), I still knew which character was talking.
    Narrators are a dime a dozen, but really GOOD ones are harder to find. Especially for books with graphic sex scenes. And Michael's voice was pure sex when it came down to it.
    There were a couple awkward moments, like a word mispronunciation or really emotional moment that didn't quite make it, but otherwise I would actively seek out this narrator again.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There was, but that would be a spoiler, now, wouldn't it?
    Let's just say, there was some breaking down of walls, crying, and a tender interaction that hadn't previously been possible.


    Any additional comments?

    If you're into emotional connections, seriously sexy times, true love conquering all, two tough men loving a baby, and happily ever afters, you won't be disappointed.
