Summary

Flint Hopkins finds the perfect tenant to rent the space above his Minneapolis-based law office.   

All the t's are crossed and i's dotted on Ellen's application. Her references are good. And she's easy on the eyes.   

Until...

Flint discovers Ellen Rodgers, Board-Certified Music Therapist, plays music. Bongos, guitars, singing - not Beethoven administered through noise-cancelling headphones.    

The cut-throat attorney serves up an eviction notice to the bubbly, constantly humming redhead who's too sexy for her own good. But luck is on Ellen's side when Flint's autistic son, Harrison, takes an instant liking to her. A single dad can't compete with guitars - and rats. Yes, she has pet rats.    

This woman...

She's annoyingly happy with a constant need to touch him-adjust his tie, button his shirt, invade his space, and mess with his mind.   

Still...

She must go.    

Their lust-hate relationship escalates into something beautiful and tragic. This sexy, romantic-comedy explores the things we want, the things we need, and the impossible decisions parents and children make to survive.   

Contains mature themes.

Good - not a fluffy book

From the cover (which is good), I thought this book was going to be a fluffy romance, and although it has elements of the usual satisfying trope, it intentionally tackles issues that are going to cause many readers conflict. The book opens with the hero being a drunk driver, and continues on with him living with his choices. My empathy is limited because I think drink driving is abhorrent, but it’s interesting that the author intentionally tackled this situation. At least the author doesn’t try to excuse it and characters accept that it’s unforgivable.

It’s well written, and still has the satisfying fluff that you want from a romance book, but it’s mixed in with characters that have more depth and situations and consequences intended to make the reader think.

I’ve capped it at 4 stars because I just can’t feel enough empathy with a drunk driver to truly get into the story. It’s well written and enjoyable, though, so giving it less than 4 would be doing it a disservice. I’m interested in hearing more from this author.

So much more than I was expecting.

This book was incredible. Emotional and moving. The writing was crisp and sharp. The wit was flawless. And the narration was top notch. Six stars!

What A jewel...

What a great surprise this book was. Very moving with wonderful characters. It wasn’t too sappy or two over the top sexy. It was just right and I enjoyed every minute of it.
Narration: really good especially Troy Duran.

Loved it!

Another wonderful Jewel E Ann story! I loved the story line, even though, as usual, I was brought to tears more than once. Simply relatable and flawed characters whose stories are woven together fantastically. Narration was perfect and I think Troy Duran just became my new favorite male performer! Well worth every minute!

1st read from this author - I will add her to my list of favorites

Recommended by another author so I thought I would give Jewel E Ann a try. I thought this book was great. Sad, sexy, smart, and funny... so funny. The characters’ banter was witty and embarrassing moments were so surprising - I literally laughter out loud. The author lightened the serious theme and situations with well placed and unique diversions. Top notch narration. Sexy times were subtle and yet still hot. That’s a talent. I look forward to my next read.

🔥🔥🔥Troy Duran could narrate the phone book 🔥 🔥🔥

This story will break your heart and then rebuild it. The romance is so sweet and grows from loss for both characters. It is a steamy but oh so passionate story. It has a lot of comic relief to break up the intensity of the story. A must read romance with a guaranteed HEA!

Narration was Perfect! Stephanie Rose was awesome but Troy Duran could read the phone book and melt your panties!

Not a Rom Com

I cannot even finish this book. Zero comedy. I’m fact, the main characters are very unlikeable.
