We are back in Holly, NC with another engaging and entertaining audiobook in this series. This time it’s Maguire O’Connor’s story. A former SEAL and now a successful auto restoration/repair businessman, he hasn’t forgotten the woman that three years ago broke his heart right before he went off to his last deployment. That gal , is Samantha (Sam) . She is back and is the new realtor in town. They meet again when he’s in search of a new home and his mother recommended “Sam”. Macguire thinking all along it was a man .
It was sweet to see them together ,especially after they realize that misunderstanding and false information was the cause of their breakup. But just when things seem to be going well, someone from her past wants her dead.
This story was a little edgier than the previous two, but also very classic Katie Reus, which is a VERY good thing.
A story filled with suspense, forgiveness, second chances, the town of Holly , the O’Connor family and of course , romance.
A story worth your time. Though not necessary, if you can, pick up the previous stories. I promise you will enjoy them as well.
Kudos to the narrator of this audiobook . Her delivery of the various characters was excellent.
I was gifted a copy of this audiobook. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
A wonderful second chance-at-love story with a generous dose of dangerous suspense!
Three years ago hadn’t been the right time for them. Now certainly was.
It’s Me Again, Baby is a wonderful second chance-at-love story by the mega-talented Katie Reus! Katie is one of my favorite authors and this book is the perfect blend of steamy romance and dangerous suspense. While it’s the third installment in Katie’s O’Connor Family series and characters from the previous books do make appearances, It’s Me Again, Baby can be easily enjoyed as a standalone if that is your preference.
This is the story of Samantha and Maguire O’Connor. Their tale is told from their dual points-of-view. Samantha walked away from Maguire years ago due to a huge misunderstanding. Neither has forgotten the other. Now, years later, Samantha has moved back to Holly, North Carolina – where it’s Christmas all year long - to be close to her mother. As the story opens, Maguire is looking to buy a new home and is surprised to discover that the woman he’s not been able to forget is his realtor.
Both Samantha and Maguire are likable, genuine characters with hot chemistry from the get-go. They have a history – so, technically, it’s not insta-love. Katie writes awesome alpha heroes and Maguire fits the alpha hero persona to the tee. He certainly flaunts it in this tale as Samantha has a threatening, unstable stalker and Maguire’s protective instincts are hastened to the forefront forthwith. Maguire is used to making decisions, issuing orders and having them followed without question. But, Samantha is an adult and has been living independently for years. She understands where he is coming from but she is no pushover. I especially like how the couple amicably works through the issue in an adult manner.
Following please find a few of my favorite quotes from It’s Me Again, Baby:
She was always the woman he didn’t want to lose…
His name on her lips brought up too many naked memories.
Taking her completely by surprise, he leaned down and strapped her in, his face only inches from hers as he took his time. He smelled fresh, crisp and oh so masculine. All she wanted to do was bury her face against his neck and breathe him in. Okay, she wanted to do more than that, but he smelled…
I listened to It’s Me Again, Baby. Sophie Eastlake does a great job bringing the story to life. Her voices of each gender are clear and sound realistic. She consistently differentiates between the characters and exudes the appropriate emotions. I love audios and, given a choice between reading the book and listening to Sophie perform it, I’ll choose Sophie’s narration every time.
I love this series featuring the HEA stories of the O’Connor siblings! If you enjoy well-plotted, exciting, heartwarming, sweet and sexy romances with a generous side of dangerous suspense, I’d highly encourage you to check out Katie Reus’ O’Connor Family series.
Any additional comments?
The blurb for this book is good and pretty much rounds up the story and is not necessary to expand upon either.....I did enjoy this sweet novella telling the story of Maguire and Samantha but really wished it was longer as would have liked more of them as well as catch up with the O'Connor family.
As with all Katie Reus books we can guarantee to find a well written story that is an easy and pleasant read.
I was given a free audio copy by the author with the request to leave a review, but it was not a condition and not compulsory to do so. The story was read by Sophie Eastlake who in my opinion did a really great job - I have listened to quite a few books read by her and have always enjoyed them and have her rated as a good narrator.
This is a very romantic and exciting second chance romance by one of my favourite authors. I loved the way it started off deceptively calm and then got increasingly hotter and hotter as it progressed. It is a very spicy sweet and sexy story with a little drama added to give it a hint of suspense and keep us guessing. There is never anything ordinary in katie's books, they are always ahead of the rest. Sophie Eastlake has a sexy sultry voice that added a lot to the pleasure of listening to the story. I think she was a very good choice as narrator.
