Summary

New York Times bestselling author Melody Anne's sizzling novel of ex-lovers locked again in a game of hearts.

There was a time when surgeon Kian Forbes would have surrendered every cent of his vast family fortune if it could make Roxie Gilbert happy. That was before she skipped town, broke his heart, and sent him spinning through a string of forgettable one-night stands. He never even knew he'd fathered a child - with Roxie's sister, no less. But in the wake of tragedy, little Lily needs a home. And Kian wants his daughter. But Roxie's not giving in or giving up without a fight.

Fearful of her intense feelings for Kian, Roxie ran. Now that her sister's death has brought her home, she intends to take custody of her niece and avoid Kian - easier said than done on both counts. With their wealth and power, the Forbes men are accustomed to winning. And as she and Kian are forced to spend time together for Lily's sake, saying no to everything he wants proves impossible...even though it means risking both their hearts all over again.

It was ok

while I enjoyed the story, it was a bit drawn out in places and found myself not listening. very predictable, I have quite a few books by Melody Anne and enjoyed other titles more. Narration was good, heard better heard worse. Much prefer a male and female narrator, makes the story so much better.

Can't wait:

Great story with a little thrill. I liked the narrator good range of voices. Can't wait to read/ listen to the other books in this series. I'm a big fan of series books.

Just no

Roxy is one of the most annoying characters ever.

The narrator pronounced Kian every way under the sun. Is it Kian that rhymes with Ian or Kian that sounds like Kion?? Or is it a Pepper??

This book annoyed me a lot.

Honestly?

This Roxy character is unbelievable. After Pamela (Roxy's sister) dies the best part of the book ends, oh and Pamela' s letter was good. I have read other books by M. Ann and enjoyed them but this one is a no read, Sorry.

so hard to finish

the narrator ruined this book. Kristin Watson heintz would drag out the oddest words! unfortunately she seems to have narrated the next book in the series too. I was going to try and listen to it but no. Can't listen to her again.

👍🏻

I like the book, but it was missing something. It too long to get to ending. I think Kian should of been more firm regarding the little girl. He should move on from Roxie I really did not like her character. He deserved better.

Just glad it was free not worth paying for.

Roxy is selfish and pathetic. Does not show single women in a positive way. If I were Kian I would have filed the appropriate paperwork and take care of my daughter.

Aggravating (spoilers)

This story was aggravating as hell. There were plenty of aspects that I enjoyed, like the romance. But it spent so much time vacillating between custody, being a parent, and just trying to win over the other person, it killed what could have been a great story about second chances and new parenthood, and a living family. The heroine was selfish and was so bent on showing she can’t be pushed around and bitter, that she avoids letting her Nieces biological father get to know the kid he just found out he had, and then acts like it’s his fault. All he wants is to be a dad to the kid and this chic literally hides and acts like a jerk to him, refuses to talk custody and threatens to run off with his kid. Despite them both having custody by the will, they both fail to act like adults for the kids sake and come to a joint custody arrangement. This entire aspect of the story just pissed me off, because not any of the characters have two craps and put the kid first. Instead they were petty, and played tug of war with the kid who for majority was treated as an after thought by the character. I don’t mind custody battles in stories if they are done well and have some compassionate aspects to them, or validity to the reason for the custody battle, but it was pointless and just made me hate the characters because they acted like a*holes.
