Just... Boring

Didn't even finish it. Boring, predictable and all the clichés (and not in a good way)

sweet and flawed

This is my first time reading this author. I dont know how I feel. Its a very sweet..feel good but wants to be angsty story. I dont kinda-sotrta-do-dont really mind the first flip of the script. But once I let go and the baby is born....okay fine...lets go. I will say as a mother the aging of the baby bothered me..sometimes it was age appropriate and others not so much. Of course TH was narrating gold and Callie D was really good. The Lifetime plot twist at the end....major eyeroll and side eye for me. Im not angry I used a credit for this but I do think its better suited on audible escape package .

4.5 baby Knox stars!!!

I really enjoyed this story, which was a surprise because some of the reviews are harsh. But I am sooo glad I decided to see for myself. I swooned hard over Ridge. He was such a great character, even though at the beginning I was not a fan. Now Kendall I loved from the very start, she was the hardworking and sassy chick, I would love to have as a BFF. Their story is sweet and yes a little heart wrenching, but definitely worth it. I absolutely adored the narration from Callie Dalton and Teddy Hamilton as well!!!

Unexpected twists

I read in a review once that the best narrators are the ones you don’t notice. Callie Dalton and Teddy Hamilton are two of my favorite. They allow the listener to focus on the story instead of their voice. As for the story, I loved it! I’m pretty good about predicting where the pot is going but this story had a few plot twists that shocked me. I’m sure good in the form of a book but I highly recommend getting the audio version.

Must Read...Loved it! Worth the credit...

I highly recommend this book and Ridge is one of my new book boyfriends. This book has all the feels in it and I just couldn't stop listening. Also, be prepared...its a tear jerker because you truly feel for the main characters while falling for the supporting characters too.

Great story!!

Great story full of twists and turns. There’s 1 chapter toward the end that is kind of cheesy but overall it was a great book!

plot twist

The playboy finds a good girl and settles down. A good story. The plot twist near the end was good and unexpected.

So sweet

I cried. I laughed. I cannot remember the last time a book took me through so many emotions so fully.

Wow!

The book details were incredibly vague so I had no idea what I was getting into. So many twists and turns but Ridge had me from the very start! Kendall’s love and devotion to baby Knox and Ridge just warmed my heart!
I’m a HUGE fan of Teddy Hamilton’s narration! His voice is so addictive! I’ve listened to many of Callie Dalton’s narrations and she’s superb! The two of them together really make a tremendous team!

Wow!!

I never ever wrote reviews but this book was so good that I thought others needed to know too. I can’t wait for the next in the series!

Loved Ridge - My personal perfect Alpha Male

What can I say I loved Ridge, he is all the things I'd want in a male, minus one night stands and the bets. 😉 the best part, he learned from his mistakes. Yes he had to grow up and own his mistakes and I loved that. I loved how he was super helpful to strangers and was there for his son.

(trying not to give spoilers) I was super sad about the death of a character, I really liked them and would have been happy for it to have gone another way but Kaylee still managed to save the story.

Kendall, I liked her but thought the whole survivor's guilt was a bit ridiculous seeing as how she never even knew the person or that they existed as part of their life. to me it's a case of too much empathy. And yes I believe people can have too much.

All in all, this is my favorite of the series. I have read them before listening to them and Ridge is still my favorite. ❤
