Beth Schaefer isn't just on the partnership track at her Portland law firm, she's in the lead. Unfortunately, she's about to fall at the finish line. When she makes a list of breakdown destinations, she can't even manage to choose between them. Which means she has to come home to Wild Horse, Idaho, for her breakdown. She has exactly 18.5 days of accumulated vacation time to devote to it.
Evan O'Donnell's girlfriend took off when their baby girl was a month old, and that's just fine by him. His daughter Gracie is all the female companionship he needs, thank you very much. Beth Schaefer's not even in the running. Eight years ago, her parents convinced her to give him up, and he's had enough of snobs and women who don't stick. Evan's a blue-collar guy from his too-broad shoulders to his scuffed work boots, and he's nobody's white knight, and nobody's hero. Not anymore.
But what if Beth isn't the only one who needs saving?

Real people fall in love . . . again
Evan is the strong and silent type. Beth is a mixed up almost-partner lawyer. They had a history together nearly a decade ago and Beth ran out on it to be the good little daughter and go to college and become a lawyer in the big city. Evan got injured out of a pro football career, but liked his small town home better anyway. He is now partners in a painting company and busy as the small town has added a fancy resort. He's also a new single father whose partner ran out on him and their adorable baby, Gracie. Evan's down to earth while Beth is busy trying to figure out what on earth she has been doing working lawyer hours in the big city with no apparent life. (Oh, what we think we want when we start our careers and how they really turn out. . . that realism is always a place where Rosalind James shines!)
I found Beth hard to like, especially at first. Admirable, yes, but not so likeable because who is she, really? This story has to move fast because she's on a short timetable, but that works because of their past history and the small town make it hard not to know what someone is like. Beth eventually peels off the layers of herself that don't fit and does become more authentic. She was really a hometown girl at heart, too.
She and Evan have to get past their past and figure out if they have a future together while also juggling career aspirations plus assorted family members.
I enjoyed Tanya Eby's reading, but liked her female voices best. She did a good Beth and made fun baby noises for Gracie. :)

Beth and Evans Story
we were introduced to Beth and Evan in the First book, and the pain of their story was felt for those moment. In No Kind of Hero the back story ist told and the future is experience. this is a very well writing book and the narration was excellent as usaual. I do recommend this book for others that like a HEA.

Hot second chance romance
Any additional comments?
A really great audiobook about a second chance romance. What a loved is that Beth learned the hard way that being a grown up is not being a big city lawyer but having the strength not to simply follow the roadmap that others have decided for you. Beth is strong , caring and a lot braver than she or Evan have given her credit for. Evan is the quit strong type who's love for his daughter defines who is.
The path of true love never did run smooth. A great journey with just the right about of drama and a surprise visitor to create a captivating story.

History comes back to bite you
One thing with Rosalind James books, you get what you pay for in heaps. Steamy romantic stories with HEA . Pleasant to listen to with no angst and no padding . Glad I only get these books to review on occasions or I'd be turning into a romantic. Yeh go for it if it's your genre you'll enjoy
