I just loved the start of this book, it really drew me in. Haley is such an inspiring person, she works so hard to build a good life for herself and her daughter and I couldn't help but want her to succeed. Devon is the kind of man you want to meet, sweet and caring, strong and supportive.
The conflict in the middle of the story felt a bit forced, it took bad communication and misreading signals to a whole new level. I also didn't feel like this was resolved at the end of the book, it felt unfinished to me.
I really enjoyed listening to it and the narrator did a great job with the character voices and the pace and tone of the delivery.
I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

I found this book to be very good and it pulled me in. I thought the basis of this book was very good and realistic. I can understand the want to be independent and not accept help from others. This story features Hailey, a single mom, and Devon, a security businessman, Allison, Hailey's daughter, and Mrs. German, the grandma-like neighbor of Hailey and Allison. Devon was attracted to Hailey for months before he bumps into her. I liked how subtle and persistent he was in pursing Hailey. They had a major miscommunication which resulted in them not being together for a while. Hailey's antics to avoid him were very realistic. A life changing event then happened which brought them back together. Things seemed like everything was great and the story ended. Not a cliffhanger ending, but open to continuation. Without giving away spoilers, I must say the author wrote a great story and featured some thought provoking things. Kudos to Stacy Easton for another great book.
This was the first time that I had heard Julie Walters and Gene Branson perform. They were good, but didn't have as many distinguishable voices for the various characters as I was hoping to hear. The delivery and performance was flawless, but not exceptional. I think I'm sometimes too picky with expectations of performance. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will definitely listen to the next book in this series.
