Publisher's Summary

Second grade teacher Mia Delaney isn't looking for love. In fact, she isn't looking for anything at all because life hasn't been fair. Everything - the idea of love, her hopes and dreams - was ripped away in a single night.
Arrogant yet sexy Adam Lawson makes the move to a small town in an attempt to escape life in the city. Here he hopes to provide a fresh start for those he loves and protects with a vow to never let anyone get close enough to hurt them again.
A chance encounter with Miss Delaney begins a relentless pursuit that has Adam breaking his own rules when he makes an offer she simply can't refuse. Despite her internal struggles, Mia knows there's no denying the attraction between them.
But when acquaintances become friends and friends become enemies, Adam's need to protect those around him becomes even more crucial. Will the tangled web of lies and betrayal combined with past insecurities become too much for them to handle?

Awesome narration!

Absolutely loved this book! The characters are amazing and you will fall in love with Mia & Adam! Can't wait to find out the rest of their story! Mia is a very strong woman to have dealt with all that she has; how much heartbreak can one person survive?! This is an amazing story and you will feel the emotions..... what a ride!

Characters 3.75, Story 4, Narration 5 stars!

This is a really hard book for me to review because I loved the story line, I only loved the characters (sometimes) and I more than loved the narration.... But, yes there is a but.... about 1/3 of this book I wanted to stop listening because I felt like Mia was so clueless!!! I mean she spent a large part of this book being so naive that it made me crazy! For a smart girl she sure was dumb, but only during some parts of the book, at other times I loved her character!
Here is an example of what she was like during the clue less parts....I keep seeing this car everywhere I go, gee I wonder who it is, I feel like someone is watching, huh that's weird, oh the window is open in the middle of the night after my dog woke me up barking at the back door, wow must have left it open!
I understood in the beginning but after SO many different things you would think she would catch on! Besides that though, the other 2/3 of the book I loved her! She was sweet, fun and she teaches 2nd graders what's not to love? Then there is Adam, He is a sexy single dad....Nope I don't even need to say more :) In the end I gave this book 4 stars because I loved it most of the time! I'm hoping book 2 leaves out the naivete and It'll probably be a 5 star for me!

TRACY MARKS IS A ROCK STAR!!! I love her narration, every thing about it works for me!
