Summary

Leah Morgan was done with men. After barely surviving a horrendous childhood, and a boyfriend who bailed when things got rough, Leah had given up on love. Then she met him, Hollywood's new golden boy who suddenly had eyes only for her. She tried to convince herself that one night couldn't hurt, but after six months, the memories of his mesmerizing gaze and searing touch still invaded her every thought.

Declan James had just one rule when it came to women. Keep it simple, and never linger. That all changed the moment he met Leah. Even across a crowded bar, he could tell she was different. Sweet, with just the right amount of sass, she made him break his golden rule and now he couldn't walk away.

When casual becomes anything but, and emotions run deep, will Leah and Declan fight their fears, or let old insecurities tear them apart? When Declan's past comes roaring back in a way neither of them could have expected, will they stand united or be torn apart by the challenges that lie ahead?

It was only supposed to be one night, but only forever will do.

Even James Fouhey couldn't save this one

CONTAINS SPOILERS. This audiobook was brutal. I hated the voice of Leah. I hated the cheesy, sex scenes.. "he entered me with one thrust"... ouch. It really bothered me that you'd get through one awful sex scene and a minute later there would be another. The most annoying part was that in reality, Leah should have become irritated with Declan. I mean she finds out her mom died and is upset, he shows up and has sex with her. Her dad beats her up, she is upset, he shows up and has sex with her. She has to babysit. He comes along and tries to have sex with her. Then she discovers he has a kid, he is shocked and upset... does he try to have sex with her then? no. If I just got beat up or found out my mom died and my hot boyfriend wanted to get laid... i would be livid. ughhh. it was annoying. Maybe it wouldn't have been so bad if there had been more of a plot or if the sex scenes were hot... but they were cheesy and I rolled my eyes through all of the ones I didn't fast forward though.

So why did I force myself to sit through 8 hours of this crap? I am a big fan of James Fouhey. His character was annoying but that wasn't his fault. I will definitely steer clear of this awful author in the future.

Such a heartfelt story

Leah and Declan's story was so endearing. Leah was such a strong and I woman having gone through so much in her childhood. Declan was such a guy but throughout the book, his greatest qualities proved to be redeeming.
I really enjoyed the witty banter, emotional discoveries, and romantic adventures within this book.
I flipped between reading and listening to the audio and I really loved the narrators. They were both perfect for the two main characters and really helped to bring the story to life.

WOW!!

WOW, wow, and more wow. I don't think I have ever been so swoon over a book as I was with this one I mean DAMN it was literally another best book for me. What I loved most about this book was the family oriented atmosphere that it was always present throughout the whole book and everyone was welcomed. The happily ever after seas also very obvious in this story España to the people who needed it the most and it was inevitable despite their objections. The narrators were great I think they brought life to every chapter especially Declan's characters he was hilarious and kept me laughing. Leah's narrator eehhh she could have done better but she was good still made me laughed. What I didn't like about this book was that I felt it was a bit unrealistic with the whole plot of the story I was waiting for something to happen but it didn't and if it did it was not much. Everything was just too perfect, well with the exception of a few bad incidents, and although it was great it was a bit annoying. I still loved loved loved this story it was great.

First for everything

Leah was Claire's best friend from the first book and had a one night stand with Logans friend Declan in the first book. She never thought she would see him again, then he showed up on her doorstep six months later.
Declan never did relationships, he didn't know why he was going back for more with Leah. There was just something about her that drew him to her. When she rejected him the night he showed up at her house, he didn't know how to take that.
Their relationship starts out rocky, but blooms into something more. Then Leah drops a bombshell on him after she sees a picture of his high school sweetheart. That will either bteak them or make them stronger.

I love it!!

The beginning of this story I wasn’t sure if I would like it.. sounded like two odd people but then I stuck with it and it turned into a really well rounded story. This author does a good job of showing how people can change. Looking forward to the next one. Also great narrators!!

"You made this cynic believe in love"

I really enjoyed Declan and Leah's story. It was obvious they loved each other. Leah had a really crappy childhood so her faith in men is non exsistent. She is a fun, loyal and kindhearted. Declan has been burned in a relationship in the past and since then he has not looked for love. I enjoyed how their story went from one night stand to friends with benefits to boyfriend and girlfriend who fall in love. Another good book in the series.
