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.

bad narrator

I wish the narrator changed her voice when she's reading. The same voice man or woman.She needs to learn from Andi Arndt.

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.

Disappointing

Roxie is completely unreasonable. Her reasons for leaving such a wonderful man in the first place are ridiculous and made no freaking sense. Then she returns to act like a brat trying to act like she had some claim over a child that in her own words barely spent any time with her. Skyping with her niece in 3 years and somehow she felt like she has more rights to a child then her biological father.. f that... Kian was more than patient about that situation and Roxie acted like a total bitch.. she was emotional and stupid. Maybe it was the narrator that did a poor job of portraying the character. I had to speed it up to 1.25x just to get through it. The core story had some good parts but missed the mark on several areas. I mean the final ending made no sense. She flew into a frenzy at the hospital for no reason whatsoever. Made no sense. I am conflicted about listening to the next books in the series. Same narrator for all books makes me worried. I would definitely find a better book or series.

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.

Not bad

New author and narrator for me. Narrator has a bit of a lisp, you get used to it. This was an okay listen, started out well then the drama bomb dropped. The h and H burn so hot and cold it's a little cringe, but they have a unifyer that makes it all acceptable, I guess.

Grating narration

This book should have been a tear jerker. But the narration was so annoying I couldn’t get into the story. Should have started it before I got in the car. It was a long drive with nothing to listen to. 🤬

Horrible!!!!

This book was a bit hard to get through… The story line is a bit all over the place. There were a lot of “errrr what(?)” moments. It feels like it was written by a teenager 😬

The narration was great though 🤷🏽‍♀️

Narrator killed the vibe of book

The narrator's voice doesnt match the emotions of the words. On some paragraphs where the characters of the book are having a normal conversation, the narrator speaks with too much emotion, which isnt at all required and has a very high pitch. kills the vibe of the story and book.
