From New York Times bestselling author Wendy Lindstrom comes a “deeply emotional, quietly captivating” story about a marriage of convenience and the hard choices two passionate people must make.

But dire circumstances force her to marry Kyle, a man soured on love and committed to his business.

Love Those Rugged Grayson Men!

For those who've read my reviews before you know I love series books that continue on with the characters from the previous books. Because this series is about a family this really adds so much depth to the stories and the characters seem more dimensional. Of course, the addition of new characters amplifies the likability of the series.

"The Longing" is about Kyle's journey and tells not only how he deals with the heartbreak from the first book but how he discovers that love can evolve despite bad circumstances. Amelia has her own set of insecurities which, when combined with Kyle's, makes this story a true to life challenge.

I find this series endearing because it's basically about a good old-fashioned family. The author writes strong rugged men who aren't perfect but are wiling to change. They don't back down when the going gets tough. It is a an emotional story filled with friendship, caring, desperation, love, hope, and trust.

Although I think these books could stand alone, I would advise reading these books in order of the series. I think the reader would lose too much character personality and the story comprehension would fall a bit flat.

If you enjoy beautifully written detailed family stories with a sweet, unforced romance....then this is for you! I recommend this series.

Lovely romance

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Kyle's a little bit broken and Amelia's heartbroken and yet these two try really hard to make the best of their circumstances. She really wants to create a home and embraces his family. He knows she's been hurt and agrees to take his time getting to know her before sleeping with her. Even though they're keeping secrets, I admired their attitudes, even for that era. They're romance developed slowly and I felt like I was a part of it. It was lovely but not without issues.

There was a bit of intrigue and suspense, too, involving Amelia's father's business issues. I liked how it was seamlessly woven into the romance and the story.

Any additional comments?

I'm enjoying this series and I really liked this story. The evolution of Kyle and Amelia's relationship from friends to lovers was very nicely told, especially after having been dumped in the last book. The Grayson Brothers... diamonds in the rough, especially the audiobook experience.
