Emma, older sister of renowned rock star Jake McKallister, has crafted a quiet existence for herself. Fiercely independent, scorned at work, and indifferent to relationships, she's spent the past decade trying to move on from the crime that shook her family to the core. Living by a promise she made to herself as a distraught 16-year-old, Emma has sworn off marriage and children...until a chance encounter with a scruffy hitchhiker throws her orderly world into chaos.
A wild child raised in mayhem by a teenage mother, fearless Finn Perry cruises through life as the perennial nice guy. Now a struggling actor, he supports himself by performing daredevil stunts. At a crossroads in his life, one thing has always remained constant in his world: Finn's desire to start the family he never had. The mystery woman who rescues him from the side of the road sure seems like the perfect person for the job.
But unfinished business from Emma's troubled past looms heavy, threatening to destroy the fledging love she's found with the only man to ever jump-start her wounded heart.

Another great hit in the series
Yes, there is so much debth, humor and emotion to this storyline. I love the continuing story of the McAlister family. The trama that the whole family went through when Jake was kidnapped and how they all joined together afterwards continues in Emma's book and we get to know more and more of how it affected each of the kids in her book. J. Bengtsson paints such a vivid picture of pain and regrowth through family in her stories you can't help but fall in love with the characters even when they aren't making the best choices.
Yes I have listened to several Andi Arndt and Zachary Webber performances and as always they hit this one out of the ball park. Andi did a great job with making Emma closed off as she was meant to be due to the trauma she endured as a teenager but also still lovable as your heart went out to her as she had to grow up and do things that most teenagers never should have when Jake was kidnapped. Zach of course was on par with his performance you couldn't help but love his character. He too had a hard life growing up and the way Zach delivered the humor and love in this performance was spot on.
I loved the part of the book when Emma and Finn were are the "compound" with the kids. Both times they were there and the way Finn interacted with the kids were humorous. You can see the love he has for his family and the respect/admiration they have for him. Even how Emma reacted to them showed she loved kids even when she claimed she never wanted to have kids.
