Summary

This single dad is about to ruin all her plans.

Addison’s plan was simple. Leave her cheating prick of a husband and move back to Ireland to live out her dream. Sounds easy enough, right? Wrong.

After his unexpected loss, Blake’s focus is his daughter happiness. But finding a sopping wet Addison’s wrapped in only a towel turns his thoughts to his own future and the possibility of finding love once again.

Blake ignites excitement and passion in Addison she’s never experienced before, but when her ex drops another bombshell, will she decide that’s enough to keep her in Ireland for good?

Ruined Plans is the first book in Tracy Lorraine’s steamy single dad Ruined trilogy.

Hot Single Dad

I went into this not knowing it was in 3 parts. So when it came to an end I was pleasantly surprised to know the others parts were available since I die with cliffhangers. The story held me so much I immediately bought the 2 other parts so I could finish the story. I will say it was worth the listen to hear all 3 parts. Give it a listen.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Enchanting beginning!

Addison is a lawyer in London whose life is about to take a different path. Her husband is a lawyer, too, and a rigid man who expects her to dress in Gucci and high heels every day. Their relationship isn't the best, but when she finds him with her own PA on his desk, that's the end. Addison grew up in  Ireland, so she goes home to find herself again. Her godmother, Aunt Addy, welcomes her and lets her know that she can stay as long as she wants. She needs some time to find what she'd like to do. What she has always loved, since she was a child, is to bake! Perhaps she can find a building to convert into a bakery once she receives her divorce settlement. A problem with the water shutting off in the middle of her shower sends her to the garage to check if a fuse is blown and right into an encounter with the electrician. But, he's not the electrician! He's the boyfriend of Addison's best friend and Aunt Addy's daughter, Kayleigh, who recently passed away. She can't forget the looks he gave her and the feelings she had when they first looked at each other in the garage. He's interested, but Addison isn't sure it's the right thing to do. She finally follows her heart instead of her mind, but once more her world is going to change. This is the first part of the series and ends in a mild cliffhanger. An enchanting tale! 
I both read and listened to Ruined Plans and the narration is beautifully done by Nicole Blessing. Not only is her accent delightful, so is the pronunciation of the Irish words.

enjoyable start of a romance

A fast paced really well written immediately addictive story including great characters. Addison goes back to what she feels is home after finding out her husband was cheating. As she tries to pull herself together more secrets are revealed she meets single dad Blake who makes her see and feel things. Ends on a cliffhanger wanting for more. Narrated fantastically really bring you into the story.

Excellent Series

I first read this series by Tracy Lorraine and was excited to learn that an audio version was produced. These are not standalone books. They are very well written with a great storyline. This was a beautiful romance between a broken, but strong woman and a committed, single dad. My heart broke several times through this series. When a physical reaction occurs while reading, it receives high star ratings from me. I was invested in the characters and hope to see more of them. I especially hope for a Jason and Cara story.

Nicole Blessing is an excellent narrator. She has a smooth voice with a great accent. Her performance kept the book rolling through my head. I didn't want to pause the book when necessary.

Just left me hanging

This book just didn’t work for me. Yep narrator was ok, but a little monotone. The story took a while to build up, then ended so abruptly. Honestly, I would have expected it to be the first book in a series given the sudden end.
