Publisher's Summary

Ex-marine. Ex-wife. Ex-hausted. 

I left my brothers in the marines to start a family. I left my ex-wife when that family drove her to drink and drugs. Now all I have left is my son - and he's all I care about.  

I can't afford to make another mistake. And the girl who moved in next door? Mistake written all over her. She's got the sweetest smile, the hottest damn curves, and behind it all...a haunted look. I can't take my damn eyes off her. 

My powerful body and coarse attitude make her nervous - and as she tries to start a new life away from her abusive ex, she has her own reasons to stay away. But we can't help it. We're f--king drawn to each other. And when she tells me how much she wants a baby...I make every mistake in the book. Because I want a family again. 

I want her. My son. And a baby. And when her past comes calling...I'll fight to hell and back to keep it.  

Contains mature themes.

D’awwww

My very first book by this author and definitely not my last. I loved the single dad theme with a the thrilling side story. It lent to an audio that I couldn’t stop listening to.

John Lane and Veronica Worthington were excellent narrators. They became the characters and kept me engaged in the story with their tone and inflections, even when portraying the characters of opposite sex.

Painful writing great narrators

If you enjoy being told every tedious thought rather boring characters have over and over and over and over again this book might be for you. Mr. and Ms. Worthington did a great job with what they were given and I will seek them out for further listening but not this author.

Good book

Good book but it was slow in spots. I will admit I skipped a chapter or two. I loved the narrators though.

Hero Next door

This is a cute, and endearing story with a touch of suspense. I enjoyed it. John Lane and Veronica Worthington kept me engaged, and entertaining. They did a wonderful job narrating.

💕 Yummy

This book is absolutely great. Enjoyed how it slowly builds up to the finale. Military man retired who falls in love with a lil school teacher. Did they make good music together absolutely. He has a son and she loves him as if he were her own. Enter the asshole ex boyfriend and his ex wife the mess hits the fan. The narrators did an excellent job. The book was no struggle to listen or read. I had both. Well wrItten book and I am on my way to find something else by this author. 👍👍

Great read!

I really liked the narrators! they made the story really fun and exciting. I almost wish there was more character development as the storyline was really good but overall, a great read.

Worst book ever

This book is horrible. You can tell this is a book that was transformed from a book that was probably released in England to a book that was released in the US. Who ever heard of coffee whistling? The author barely made the effort to change things so you're left with a book that is just cringe worthy.The author had no idea how thing work in the US. She didn't even know how the hospital system works here or that we don't have coffee that whistles. I'm not against book that are released in the UK or England but I don't know why they felt the need to change a few things to make it sound like the characters lived in the US. The whole book was just terrible even after you get past all the treble transformations.

really nice HEA

It's the first I've read of this author and I enjoyed the lighter take on a sensitive subject. Had some steam, romance and the hot alpha. it was sweet and on the gentler side. John lane's deep voice is awesome., and it's the first I've listened to veronica. she's narrated nicely and brings Naomi's character to life.

AWESOME STORY

I loved this book! With the ending being obvious when reading the blurb, a lot of my friends ask me how I 'enjoy something that I know the ending to?' but as I hope most passionate readers know, the main part of a book isn't the ending to the story. It's the twists and changes in the story that make it what it is, not the ending. The romance between Mac and Naomi was awesome, with the looming sense of danger and protection warring with themselves in Naomi's life. Tyler is also the cutest kid in this book with an adorable personality that makes you swoon when a cute kid is around. I listened to this as an audiobook and loved the narration, I had no need to change the speed and didn't cringe at their speaking. I don't regret reading this book and would definitely recommend this to those who like this genre. I loved this book!
