Summary

This time he’s fighting for his family.  

Axel: When I left home to follow my dream of becoming a boxer, I was too young and stupid to know what I was leaving behind.  

These days I fill my world with the blood and sweat of a violent profession and the meaningless sexual conquests that come with it. A futile attempt to erase from my mind the only woman I’ve ever loved.  

Since I can’t let her go, I have no choice but to win her back.   

Olive: I’ve loved Axel my entire life. The boy next door.  

We didn’t talk about the attraction building between us, until one fateful night those sparks finally burst into flames.  

But when he broke my heart, he left me with a souvenir. A walking, talking little reminder of the man I will always love, but can never again trust with my heart.  

Now he’s back, wanting to pick up where we left off. And there’s no way I’m letting him know about our baby.

Audio obsession. REVIEW SEPT 19.
Axle is a top boxer when he bumps back into his childhood sweetheart. This time she will not run away.... but things are so much more complicated IN TOO MANY WAYS! Can this young couple overcome these obstacles? Is their chemistry that was perfect meant to be?

hot and sweet :)

Holly Holt is a new to me narrator. I enjoyed this story and found that listening to this narrator made the story pop for me. I enjoy listening to audio, and this one was no different. The story flowed well and I loved Olivia and Axel. Highly recommend it.

Quick enjoyable read

This was a really enjoyable book could put it down and easily jump back in. My one criticism is that a male narrator would have been a plus on his chapters. Overall I really like this story and look forward to seeing more from the author l.

A sweet, modern first-love, second-change romance

Olive and Axel were each other's childhood best friend, first love and biggest heartbreak. Axel leaves Olive behind to pursue his boxing career without realising he was leaving more than his heart behind.

Years later their paths cross and a second chance presents itself. Only Olive has a child and it is only a couple days before she is due to get married.

This romance is full of chemistry, emotion and the angst of transitioning young love to something more mature and sustaining. The couple have a lot to work through but there is no denying the explosive sexual attraction.

Overall this story is both sweet and sexy. It is a modern love story between a gorgeous alpha male and a nerdy girl next door. Quite literally!

interesting story

I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.

I enjoyed this book and liked the character development. I like a second chance love and a bad boy book and this ticked all the boxes. Holly Holt was good but some of her voices were a little bit the same but she kept me entertained. This is a good book and well worth a credit.

Some parts brought me to tears

I got this ARC via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. I really enjoyed this story. I loved that it was the hero who was filled with angst and had to do whatever to get his family. This showed a different side of a strong character. The narration was pretty good and each character was distinctive. I loved the backstory sprinkled in throughout. Overall a good listen. I listened to the story while getting my walk in and then my rest in. This was an all day story. So expect to spend time with the characters. The secondary characters were also important.

A good story with excellent characterization. Axle is a boxer, something I know little about, with more than a little bad boy going on. It causes him some problems especially when it comes to the only relationship that matters to him.

I never understand how someone who proclaims to love someone can shut that person out for long periods of time when there is such obvious caring back. To me it shows weak fearful character and the strength of their love is diminished. There is also something lost in the tale.

The Holly Holt did an excellent job narrating.

good story

I loved how this story gave you the past, present and future. The characters have a historical love, one that people dream of. The narration was ok, but I feel that there could have been more differences for the male voices.

Second Chance to Love

This was my first N. Alleman and J. Chase's book. This is second chance to love. The story is filled with twists and turns and I loved Olive and Axel's story. The narration was good, easy to understand, but the characters weren't always easy to distinguish. Despite that, I enjoyed my listening.

Love this story!

I love this story - it's one I will definitely listen to again. It was nice to hear the past as well as the present without it feeling like you were jumping around. The narrator did a great job and made you feel immersed in the story.

The Beast's Baby

I enjoyed listening to, The Beast's Baby. I thought it was a solid story, with enough background to help the reader feel more invested in the characters. I think the narrator did a pretty good job as well, and helped to bring the story to life. All in all, a nice way to spend the day! Worth the listen.
