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.

A GREAT Story

Would you consider the audio edition of Facing West to be better than the print version?

I found this book on Good Reads and they once again did not disappoint me. the narrator is fantastic and I enjoyed every second of it

Nico Salerno left his small Texas hometown when he was only fifteen in order to give his mom and older sister a chance at a better life when he realizes his mother’s homophobic boyfriend is never going to propose with him in the picture.

Weston Wilde has had an easy life filled with close family, acceptance, and a lot of luck and hard work, but when his best friend dies and her brother shows up to take custody of her baby he’s a lot less interested in finding out why Nico left or where he’s been then blaming him and being a pretty big jerk.

Personally, I was taken aback at how long it took for West to realize that Nico wasn’t a bad guy. I mean, a kid doesn’t leave home at fifteen without some pretty good reasons.

Lucy Lennox writes another entertaining, sexy as hell romance with a sprinkling of angst and drama and Michael Pauley does such a good job bringing the characters to life. I was invested in the listen – even yelling at the air a few times when West was being particularly hard-headed.

All in all this was an engaging listen and I look forward to continuing the series.

Loved this story!

Any additional comments?

I think I like this series more than the Made Marian one. Michael Pauley did a great job! The one thing I'll say is that it took me a while to get used to that country accent!
