Summary

Self-made business owner Dale McGuire has always enjoyed two things in life: women and fast cars. Now in her mid-30s, she's restless and can't work out why. Then one day a 10-year-old boy turns up, claiming to be her son, and her simple ordered world turns upside down.

Rebecca Harper bears the emotional scars of her father's crimes, and now she has two rules: never let anyone get too close and never admit weakness. Thanks to an anonymous egg donor, infertility didn't stop her from having her son Jake. Now pregnant for a second time, she's horrified when Jake brings home the woman he believes is his other mother.

When distrust turns to understanding and passion, can Dale and Rebecca, two women bound by fate, make a family neither expected?

not bad

This is my first audio book and I quite enjoyed it, not as much as reading but still. The characters were good the narrator was good with the accents. Just wondering how she knew what accents each character had. I enjoyed it all the same listening to it in my van.

OMG OMG OMG I LOVE THIS BOOK

How can I fully explain how much I love this story? I love every part of it, the ups and downs, the drama, the happiness, the love. And also the characters, I think I'll never forget them, they live in my heart now, Dale, Becca, Jake, Sam, Val, they were all unique and real.

The narrator did a fantastic job giving them each their own voice, perfectly transmitting every emotion, both good and bad. I felt everything the characters went through, like I was there with them and knew them my whole life.

I cannot recommend this book enough, I feel like I will never make it justice even if I use all the atoms in the universe to write about it. To anyone reading my meager review, do yourself a favor and buy this book, you won't regret it.

Jenny Frame and Nicola Victoria Vincent are a perfect match

Frame is one of my favorite authors of this genre, and Vincent makes her works come to life. As a queer woman who has listened to dozens if not hundreds of romance novels over the years, I recommend this and every other Frame/Vincent audiobook without reservation.

Perfect pairing

Nicola Victoria Vincent did an exceptional job of narrating this stories and the voices were so easy to follow. The characters that Jenny Frame created were a perfect pairing making the romance sizzle and the story incredibly engaging. Highly recommend!!
