Publisher's Summary

Jamie is proud of everything he’s achieved. A consultant anesthetist and the medical education director - he’s a pretty big deal. So when one of his medical students falls asleep, right in the middle of a tutorial, he is furious. He’s a bloody good teacher, damn it! 

Maybe he could have been a little more understanding. Maybe he didn’t have to try to humiliate her. But the shock of how beautiful this particular student was when she finally opened her eyes, and his inappropriate reaction, only fueled his anger. He’s tired of lame excuses from wild party animals burning the candle at both ends, and he’s going to make an example of this one.

For Libby, pride is a luxury and beauty is currency. Pregnant at 17 and an aspiring doctor, she couldn’t afford to be proud, so she cashed in on her looks instead. She will beg, borrow, or steal to achieve her dreams and give her daughter the life she deserves, even if she has to forgo sleep - even if she has to leave her dignity behind.

Only now that she’s not just sitting in lecture theatres like her first two years of medical school, now that she’s working in a real hospital, Libby is realizing that the thread she’s been hanging onto for so long may be about to snap. The last thing she needs is to have riled the gorgeous, judgmental head of medical education. But there’s only so far you can push yourself, only so much pressure you can be under until you break. Libby’s been on that cliff edge for a while; her health may just tip her over.

A kick in the shin from a four-year-old girl and a confrontation with her tearful, exhausted mother soon forces Jamie to see what a bastard he’s been. Libby may not accept his help, but he’s relentless when he wants something, and it’s not long before he realizes that this mother and daughter belong with him. So when a stag night he’s on ends up in the best strip club in England and he sees who the main attraction is, his reaction is explosive.

Despite everything, Libby finds she still has some pride left. This man has made her feel small twice now. He won’t be getting a third shot. No matter how gorgeous he is, no matter how persistent....

Great chick flick with strong female lead

Ahhh just what I needed! A great chick flick book with a strong female role. It’s a lovely story that had me hooked within the first chapter. I loved the great one liners that were very comical throughout the story Susie Tate done a great job with them and even made me burst out laughing at times. But what really made the whole story come alive was Shakira’s brilliant narration. She really brought something out in each character using all sorts of voices and accents, it was awesome!

Brilliant!

I'm a big lover of Susie Tates books and jumped with joy when Beg, Borrow or Steal became available on Audible. This story is amazing and emotional, it shows the struggles of single parent Libby and her surprise at finding love with Triple G Dr Grantham with hilarious input from daughter Rosie and learning to lean on others. The narration was great and really suited the story. Highly recommend!!

Top marks

Absolutely loved this book and narration! The story could easily have turned into your typical romance story, but had enough differences in the plot to make it so much more interesting.

Beautifully narrated by Shakira Shute (she sounds like a narrator version of Keira Knightley, in my opinion!) She has a lovely voice which really draws you in to the story.
