This is the first in a series. This novel is about half the usual length. This means that Evans has to setup quick and get to the point fast, which she does very well. The plot, is about an old flame (Mason) coming back to find Lark after running out on her four years earlier.
I like the progression of the plot and the supporting character back stories, they will be the targets of the next stories. I like the pace. When you listen, be prepared for a whiplash scene where you say to yourself, "what the heck just happened?" I hope that piques your interest.
If you are interested in a quick listen, over the weekend, or a long beach day, then this book will do it for you. It's light, interesting, the narration is good and you will want to read the other books in the series. I give it a thumbs up.

This is a sweet and endearing story of second chances. Mason returns to his hometown to make amends and convince the love of his life that he is a changed and better man. He left Lark confused and heartbroken the day after he proposed to her. Lark has picked up the pieces of her battered heart and moved on with her life. But when Mason shows up unexpectedly, asking for 7 dates to prove he will do whatever it takes to show her he has never stopped loving her, Lark wants nothing to do with him. I liked how Lark did not give in easily and even wanted to plan a date of her own. Lark's sister's were also very protective of her and made it clear to Mason he was not welcome. So set the stage for proving he was truly repentant. I liked Mason even if I didn't agree with his past decisions. He demonstrated he was humble and would take the chiding he deserved to prove he had grown and matured and would never hurt the one person who truly loved him, so horribly again. Lark challenged Mason and their chemistry was still as fiery as ever. This is a charming and heartwarming story that sets up the town and the characters for future story lines perfectly.
The narrator, Piper Goodeve, did a fabulous job setting the scenes, drawing me in, and allowing me to enjoy it even more. She is one of my favorite narrators.
I liked Betting On You, and look forward to listening to the rest of the books in this series.
