Publisher's Summary

Her dreams shattered. Her world destroyed.
He can save and heal her....
Only if she dares.
Trying to rebuild her life, 17-year-old Lacey Robinson moves from one coast to the other to start over. But the pain and devastation of her past can't be left behind - not after a loss like that.
Starting over is always easier said than done....
When Lacey meets the brooding, sexy Kade Maxwell, he just might have the magic touch that awakens her feminine side, and a kiss that erases her worst nightmares.
As Lacey begins to heal, her dreams of playing baseball take a turn for the worse - a chauvinistic team captain has other plans. And when Kade comes face-to-face with a violent rival from his past, Lacey's fears and pain resurface, threatening to destroy what they repaired. Together, they must dare to fight, so they can dare to find a future.

Overall Good Book 1 Major Perplexing Issue/Flaw


The good stuff; this is a well written book by S.B. Alexander. It was frustrating yet understandable that (the heroine) Lacey Robinson was unable to share or trust easily, given her super traumatic past life devastation.

Kade Maxwell (hero and 1 of 3 triplets) is every girls dream! Not only good-looking, handsome, understanding, hot, etc. he wants to help save Lacey whenever there is a conflict. He swoops in like a superhero and is able to take care of most of the issues or assist her when asked.

It is more unique than the run-of-the-mill romance. The content is great- just ignore the unbelievable scenarios, of which there aren't many.

The questionable stuff. This is categorized as Teens> Romance & Friendship. It is NOT for a teenager. There are very descriptive, adult situations throughout the last half of the book. The only thing teenage about it is the age of the characters. It should be labeled as Contemporary Romance with mature themes in the summary – which there are not.

For the story, one thing kept bugging me. I may be behind the times, but the last time I checked boys play baseball and girls play softball. An exception, I come from a very, very small high school. One year there were not enough girls to make up a softball team, so the girls who wanted to play a spring sport WERE allowed to play on the baseball team. That was an exception. Since this story takes place in or near the Boston area I cannot imagine this scenario unfolding.

Amanda Fugate–Moss is a narrator that I have listened to on and off for almost 2 years. When I'm interested in a book and see that Amanda is the narrator, I pick it up. It is a no-brainer. She is an excellent performer.

Note: Mis-Categorized, mature themes, language and descriptions of past violent acts.

One last thing... I find that reviews help me to decide, especially new authors or performers. If you found this review helpful would you take a moment and select 'YES' below the next paragraph?

Feel free to follow me on Audible. My favorite books are contemporary romance and books by authors writing counter-terrorism, thrillers. However, you will find reviews from all genres that have asked me to listen for a review.

- DK "No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!"

What a great book!!! I absolutely loved it!!!

This audiobook was amazing! It has great characters and story line. I'm already looking forward to the next book in this series! It was so hard to put it down once I started listening to it.

The narrator did a good job and brought the story to life.

Lacey has gone through a lot with the loss of her mom and sister. She moves across the country to start a new life in a new school. She is tough but flashbacks from the night that changed her life keep plaguing her.

Kade is a gorgeous boy that is taken aback by Lacey's explosive strong temper. He falls for her and has to work hard to get her attention. He also has some heartache from his own past.

Absolutely delightful audiobook. Only of my favorite stories.

This audiobook was provided free of charge in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion.
