Summary

All Beau Montgomery, one of Charleston's most eligible bachelors, wants to do is build boats. He has no interest in marriage whatsoever...until it means he might not get his inheritance and he can kiss his boat-building dreams good-bye. But the hungry hordes of Charleston debutantes looking to score a Montgomery scare him shitless.

Gwen has loved Beau Montgomery since she used to run barefoot around the marina as a scrappy preteen tomboy. Knowing she'll never fit into his high-society family, she decided long ago she'd become his indispensable best friend rather than not be in his life at all. When he tells her he needs to marry in order to fulfill his dreams, she panics that he might actually meet someone, and she'll lose him forever.

Fun Story, A Bit Too Drawn Out

A slow slow burn romance, moments when I really wanted to shake Beau or encourage Gwen to do so.

Beau must get married in order to gain his inheritance. He can think of no one he could stand to be married to other than his best friend, Gwen. Gwen has been secretly in love with Beau for years, so when he asks her to marry him, it seems like it could be an answer to both their problems. She says no, as she wants Beau to love her for real.

Liked the characters, but Beau seems a little clueless and bumbling. Pretty formulaic romance about best friends that end up in love I really enjoyed the palm to the face realizations.

Cute!

Yeah! Beau and Gwen's story! ❤ Friends to lovers trope with some funny and steamy scenes, but their level of denial made me facepalm a few times. Poor Eileen 😔🐕😬...

Loved ❤️

This story had me hanging on to every word to the point where I took longer routes and drove slow just so I could keep listening. The characters laid out perfectly and it felt so real that I felt like I was there. Could be because I live in Charleston and knew all the places that were talked about but I absolutely loved it! The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because sometimes the variation in character voices were a little less than superb. I highly recommend!

story drag on and ok story

This story was okay but felt drag on a bit. As I was writing this review, I had two hours left and the main characters still playing cat and mouse game. I got bored and kept wondering when these two would actually get together. Also, it was not believable that it took them twenty years?! They were at their thirties! I am not a writer but this was just a bit much. The main characters were very immature. I didn't even finish the story. For me, this is one time listen. If you like immature characters, this one is for you!

So Disappointing

I can't believe this is the same writer who wrote Accidental Tryst. Very blah beginning. The 2 star performance was all for the female narrator. I wasn't even able to get past the first couple chapters so I have no idea about how well the guy narrates. very sad.

Okay

Story was okay, but way too much Blasphemy and way too much use of the F word. Not a lot of character growth and chemistry.

Nooo interaction between the two main characters

90% of the book is spent either on their inner thoughts or talking to their friends or family about each other. At no point do the main characters develop a romance between the two of besides in their heads. Whyyy can't the "hero" start his business without the inheritance, everyone has??? He's not really endearing, and only seems to develop a sexual attraction to Gwen once he finds out he has to get get married; which is not the same as falling in love with her. This story was just all over the place. Everyone in town told both of them that they knew the other had feelings but neither of them could just ask???

I liked this book. Recommended.

After listening to this book, which I enjoyed bothe the story and the narration, I'm really happy that I egnored all the negative reviews and read it.
It is a sweet love story and easy reading. The pace is very good. The narration, of both male and female, fits perfectly - good casting.
Recommended.

Cute quick story

The story was cute and easy going. Typical of Natasha Boyd stories, intersecting with other audio book stories.
Melisa Moran did an incredible job as narrator. However, Dake Bliss, I’m my opinion was horrible. Who was directing this? Overall, a good listen,

Wait until the end…

I kept waiting and listening to get to the end, if you want a fluff book that is going to take some of your time to listen to, this book is for you. I like to get into the plot quicker than this book allowed. Seemed like you waited until the last hour to see whether the two would end up together; I got bored before I got to the end.
