It started as as a simple search for a landscape designer.

I wanted a beautiful backyard for my new home, and my neighbors suggested I look into ward landscaping and design. The owner had no pictures of himself on his website. Just a portfolio of nice outdoor sitting areas, pools, and vibrant gardens that I’d always dreamed of having.

Of course, I hired him. I expected to meet an average guy, but Mr. Marcel Ward is far from your average man. He’s handsome, well-built, and his smile - though a rare trait - is truly infectious. He’s every woman’s dream - a handsome, older man who doesn’t mind getting down and dirty to create something beautiful all because of his passion for it.

Unfortunately, that lucky woman can’t be me. Although Mr. Ward tests my limits, quickens my breath, and makes my heart skip a beat when he’s around, I’ve made a promise to devote myself to my husband.

So, why am I falling for a man I know I can’t have?

Well written book of an emotionally complex subject matter. Scott Rider is ❤️. Lacy Laurel’s Gabby voice is great. Her male voices and strange “accent?” for Kyle is awful. Worth tolerating though for the story...

Great Listen

This is a well written book. While the plot is a little taboo these things happen in life. Gabby felt a great responsibility to her family so she did what she thought she had to do. Once she met Marcel she questioned her choices. Just a good story with great narration.
