Summary

After tragedy strikes, can love blossom out of grief?

As an emergency room doctor, 41-year-old Hadley Moore has spent a decade perfecting the art of shutting down her emotions to focus on saving lives. But when her younger sister and brother-in-law die tragically, the pain of loss is too great to ignore. Reeling from guilt over letting her family take a back seat to her career, Hadley seizes the opportunity to make things right by returning to her hometown to raise the infant son her sister left behind. 

At 29, Tyne Briggs knows firsthand how hard it is to grow up without a loving family. After being saved from a hostile foster home as a queer pre-teen, the young artist dotes on her large and boisterous adoptive family. When she loses her brother and sister-in-law in a car accident, her top priority is to make sure her baby nephew has the happy childhood she was denied.

Shared grief and mutual attraction bring the two women together, where they find solace and passion in equal measure. But they are soon at odds when each decides she is the best choice to give baby Owen a permanent home. Without a will to guide them, and with the two aunts unable to reach a compromise, a lengthy custody battle looms.

Cooperation and a common purpose could lead to true love and the creation of a new family together, but not if impulsive decisions and unsavory lawyers tear them apart first.

Best-selling lesbian fiction author Miranda MacLeod has written a heartwarming and emotionally gripping medical age-gap romance that will convince you love conquers all.

Really enjoyed this F/F romance

A heads up, if you are recently bereaved you may want to avoid this story, which although based around grief is not unduly sad and not depressing.
Miranda MacLeod uses skilful writing to bring a lightness of touch to the storyline and skillful banter to establish a believable connection between the two temperamentally different main characters. Her descriptions of the baby at the heart of the story are charming.
The unusual subject matter makes for a good plot which, although well thought out and arriving at just the right conclusion, is not very realistic but is believable nevertheless.
Lori Prince brings an added lightness of tone to the audio production with her skillful narration. Together, she and the author make a great combination.
This one will go in my favorites and I will be looking out for more audiobooks written by Miranda MacLeod and narrated by Lori Prince

Just like life, these hearts keep going on and on

Lori prince again manages to lift the characters from the page and breathe in that spark of life with little tone shifts, breathless sighs and adorable noises. Quite a pleasure to listen to.

Hearts get knocked quite a bit in this tale of emotions, from grief to love and everything in between the characters don’t come by their happiness in an easy way, espescially when going on full steam in their decision making on their turbulent emotions. But with the care of a lovable little boy in the balance cupid sure his hands full.

An okay listen

This book was okay. It had its engaging moments, particularly in the beginning and middle. I was roped in by the intriguing premise but overall I found the story was just missing something for me. By the last 45 minutes I had lost interest a little bit. I guess it just felt formulaic, especially as events transpired that were obviously going to careen toward the inevitable major miscommunication towards the end. I really wish more romance writers would write sensible, adult conversations between MCs and avoid the major blowout pitfall. For the genre it’s a solid read.

Hearts in Motion

It was an ok book it was nicely narrated but there were some exciting moments but not so interesting ones. While it kept your excitement their sentimental side was good but the story what the book is about is kinda of ordinary.

Great Author

Doctor Hadley Moore’s life is turned on it’s axis when her sister and brother-in-law are killed in a car accident. Now she must deal with her parents who are getting older and frailer while dealing with the custody case for her one year old nephew Owen. Tyne Briggs is the sister of Owen’s father, an artist and owner of a Paint and Sip small business. She is as determined as Hadley to get custody of Owen. This a marvelous depiction of romance and family. An erotic romance and match of opposites. A Lori Prince terrific performance.

Great story

Great story, sweet, and romantic, Macleod style. A doctor with a control and serene personality and a messy, family woman artist. A sister death forced Hadley back to her parents home, and the sad circumstances brought Tyne and Hadley together, then the battle began. A fight for parental rights, a battle against Tyne secret crush, against love, happiness and the incredible attraction between the Boston top doctor and Tyne. Is a spicy rush of feelings and emotions until both surrender for Owens benefits. I definitely recommend it.

LOVED IT!

Seriously, just stopped the treadmill, because this audiobook just ended, and I wanted to leave more than a 5 star rating. the narration was perfect, story was well thought out with witty dialogue, the drama/legal matters were just enough stress, and I laughed near the end. I'm sure I'll revisit this book again! the title isn't memorable, but I'll remember this one.

Romance, enemies to friends, age gap!

... family, and a baby! who could ask for anything more? An enjoyable story, great storyline, great pacing. I really enjoyed this one! Watch out for those breasts and those breaths. Look at that, even autocorrect got it twisted, LOL.
This is really a delightful story, with the perfect amount of conflict and excitement.

Narrator makes or breaks the story

Lori Prince is Perfect!! Seriously, this narrator just makes the characters so real. The different voices easily identified and most important, the reactions, feelings and just everything. You end up crying and laughing g and just smiles in between!
First I listened to this author so I will check out other books.
