Publisher's Summary

She never imagined she'd be widowed before the honeymoon was over.
After being raised in the foster care system, meeting and marrying the love of her life was a dream come true for Jess Bentley. For the first time in her memory, she would have a family of her own. But the dream turns into a nightmare when a drug-crazed thief shoots and kills her husband, leaving Jess alone again, trapped in the depths of despair, and struggling to find a reason to go on.
Knowing he could have prevented the tragedy, there's nothing he won't do to make it right.
Weighed down by guilt, Dan Mulholland is desperate to find a way to make life easier for the widow of the man his brother murdered. When he learns that she's pregnant, and that her father-in-law is threatening to take the child from her, there seems to be only one course of action. Marry her and adopt the baby.

Emotional Rollercoaster With Heartwarming Moments

The author did a great job writing this book. It was a gripping story. I felt so many emotions while reading this story. It's a slow building romance after a very tragic event that brought together two people in the most unlikely way.

The narrator did a great job bringing the story to life. The story starts in a very difficult moment in Jess life. She had just gotten married and her husband was killed before their honeymoon was even finished. She is alone with thoughts of vengeance and when she is unable go after the man that murder her husband she decides to take matters into her own hands and perhaps end her own life.

Dan feels responsible for his brother's actions. He had tried to reach out for money but Dan shut him down because he knew it was to buy drugs.

The book has a HEA conclusion. Two unlikely people come together after a terrible tragedy and fall in love with each other.

Dan is such a sweetheart I couldn't help but fall in love with him as well. So many obstacles stand on their way and he does what he can to help Jess.

Love can really sneak up on you...

I've been a fan of this book for several years now and, until yesterday, have only had it in print form. I have longed for this series to be released on audio for quite some time. The narrator does a great job bringing the book more to life than what one experiences with the print version.

I love the interplay of all the characters in this story. Dan, our hero, starts out as Mr. Fix-It and soon finds himself falling for Jess, our heroine. His motives are pure and the growth of the various characters throughout the story is enchanting. We meet most of Coach's Boys in this first book. We watch a family go through the turmoil great loss--both on Jess's side and on Dan's. We feel the grief that each side experiences and how they work through their loss.

Yes, this is a love story...but it is really so much more. It is also a beginning--one our characters didn't even know they wanted or needed. It will make you laugh and there are times you'll also need to pull out your tissues because you will weep. This story lays the groundwork for all those to come in the rest of the series. I'm really looking forward to them, as well.

While I love this series in print, I have to say that having it on audio is wonderful. Audio performances bring the stories to life...and also allow me a hands=free experience so I can multitask. They're great to listen to while knitting, crocheting, or quilting. Kudos to the author for bringing them to us!
