Publisher's Summary

Happily ever after is easier said than done....
Sarah Matamoros can’t complain. After immigrating from Mexico when she was nine years old, she’s content with the life she’s made for herself in sunny San Diego. She works hard at her mother’s housecleaning service by day and spends the evenings with her quirky eight-year-old daughter, Grace.
From a very young age, Emory Owen had several concepts drilled into her head. Success is everything. Be the best. Fight your way to the top. Expectations were high in the Owen household and the world was watching. Born into a high society family, Emory never wanted for anything...at least anything money could buy. When she meets Sarah, hired to sort her mother’s home, her sterile life suddenly sparks into color.
But when the emotional logistics of combining two very different worlds proves to be too much, a terrifying turn of events spurs the question: If love exists, can it really find a way?

Narrator wrecks this book!

This is a sweet book. I love the characters and the journey of their romance but I wish I had read it instead of listened to it. Mia Chiaromonte should NEVER narrate romance novels unless maybe they are for teens.
Firstly her voice is so super peppy at all times that I felt like she lost a lot of the deeper and more subtle points of the novel. Also one thing I love about Melissa Brayden is the dry sometime sarcastic sense of humor of her characters. The chirpy narration completely misses and glosses over it. Also who really wants Pollyanna narrating a sex scene. Just no. Nope. Nope. Nope!
My biggest problem was very fake and thick accent she gave to Sara. As someone who immigrated to this country as a child (with an accent), I can tell you that after 10 years of living in this country I had no accent.
The author makes a point of saying that Sara took pains to lose her accent in Junior High. Also people who refer to her accent in the book say they hear a 'hint' of an accent. Ms. Chiarmonte makes it sound like Sara came to America yesterday (from some Hollywood version of Mexico where the inhabitants all sound like Speedy Gonzalez).
It was very annoying and took me out of the story time after time. My advice for anyone wanting to buy this is for them to get the book instead.

Good Listen

With the exceptions of some over reliance on cliches and a senseless breakup which seemed quite contrived I liked it. Even with a slight man bad; woman good attitude this was a nice listen. It made six hours of landscaping go by almost quickly. Even for guys I can recommend this book. It was a pleasant experience if you can overlook some of the obvious faults. The four stars were earned.
