I enjoyed book 1 in the Fireflies series and book 2 is outstanding as well. Lisa is an outstanding author. Her books are well written and the story will keep you engaged all the way to a great conclusion.
Narration was excellent and brought the story to life. Pam does an excellent job bringing emotions to the story and characters.
I was excited when I realized Rebecca is the main character in this book. She was one of my favorite characters from book 1. Sean Kinkaid is definitely a great match for Rebecca. There are several ups and downs and a lot of emotion infused into this story.
Lisa is an outstanding writer and I’m looking forward to her next book!

It's been nearly 2 years since I read Love to Believe. I'm not the kind of reader who re-reads books (too many good books on my TBR list) but I've found that I really enjoy listening to ones that I've already read and enjoyed. The great thing about that is if I get a bit distracted by something else it usually doesn't matter because I've already read the book.
Let me tell you, once I started listening to Pam Dougherty's performance of Love to Believe I was glued to my headphones. If real life distracted me for a bit I rewound back to the part I missed. I almost never do this with audio books, let alone with one that I'd already read.
The story is compelling - I love Lisa Ricard Claro's writing - but I loved the audio version as much as I loved reading the story. I've listened to other books by female performers and haven't really liked them. I was beginning to think that I had something against a woman performing an audio book. Pam Dougherty's performance nixed that theory – I just hadn't been listening to the right voice. I also loved her performance of Love Built to Last but I hadn't listened to that many audio books when I listened to it a few months ago and I didn't have a lot to compare it too. I've recently become an audio book junkie and Pam is now one of my favorite voice actors.
Below is my review of the ebook that I wrote when it was first released.
Once again, Lisa Ricard Claro has crafted a story that I couldn’t put down once I started it; I did absolutely nothing but read this book from beginning to end on the same day I started it. I laughed and I cried while reading this and that’s the best kind of book to me.
Rebecca is a strong woman and she has a busy life running, albeit temporarily, her father’s construction business. She has no desire to have a serious relationship and when the man she’s seeing tries to move things to the next level she breaks it off. Enter Sean, someone she met through her brother.
Sean has demons from his past plaguing him and he also wants no part of a serious relationship; he only dates women he knows he could never fall in love with – until Rebecca. Against his better judgment he agrees to have a “friends with benefits” (FWB) relationship and things are wonderful… for a while.
With their two families about to be joined by marriage – Rebecca’s brother, Caleb, is marrying Maddie, the wife of Sean’s dead brother, Jack – they keep their relationship a secret believing that it will be less awkward for everyone when it ends.
Sean and Rebecca both break their FWB agreement; they fall in love but neither will admit it to the other. After they break up Rebecca calls Sean for help when she gets into trouble even though she never wanted to see him again.
This is such a great love story. Lisa has used a tried and true romance trope but in such a way that I didn’t really see it coming. I wish my review could do the writing justice. Unfortunately, I just don’t know how to write the words to describe how good I think this book is.
If you are looking for a great love story, with lots of heat but no explicit sexy time, then I recommend you get a copy of this book. Unlike a lot of popular books these days this story has very few curse words but Sean does have a bit of a potty mouth and feeds a swear jar from time to time. :-)
