After months of caring for her terminally ill mother, Rebecca Rivera is left all alone in a world she doesn't trust - but she's determined not to let her mother's death define her. Losing her job, having to pummel some jerk for being too handsy, and living in her car are just temporary setbacks to an otherwise solid plan in finding her footing. Full of pride and used to being in control of her life, she's certain she can make it on her own. The last thing Rebecca needs is a man to fix her troubles - even if that man is strikingly handsome, wealthy, and charismatic Pierce Braden.
Pierce is a powerful real estate investor on the verge of a major acquisition. As the eldest of six siblings raised by a single mother, he's spent his life protecting those he loves. He's used to being in charge and making things right, and although he'd give his life for his family, he treats the women he dates as expendable - until he meets sexy and stubborn Rebecca Rivera, a woman who is as strong as she is vulnerable.
Passion ignites between them, and the two share their most intimate thoughts and desires. It doesn't take long for Pierce to realize that Rebecca is as determined not to be saved as he is to find a way into her heart. As their love grows, Rebecca must face fears she didn't even realize she had - and Pierce must learn the hard truth that sometimes less really is more. Is the power of true love enough for Rebecca and Pierce to learn to give up control and allow their hearts to take over?
This was really good! I have been slowly working my way through Melissa Foster’s backlist and was excited to pick this one up. This book is a part of several different series but it works well as a stand-alone since the focus is on Rebecca and Pierce’s romance. Once I started listening to this book, I didn’t want to stop.
I really liked Rebecca and Pierce. Rebecca is going through a tough time when she meets Pierce but she hasn’t given up. Pierce is a wealthy business owner who is drawn to Rebecca as soon as he sees her. He has no idea that she is currently living in her car after losing everything after her mother’s death. Rebecca is proud and wants to take care of things on her own so Pierce has to work hard to step back at times. I thought that they had fantastic chemistry together and their personalities seemed to match up well. I didn’t see the big obstacle that they had to overcome as any big deal but that didn’t take anything away from my enjoyment of the story.
B.J. Harrison does a fantastic job with the narration of this book. I like the voices that he uses for both the male and female characters and I love that he is able to add just the right amount of emotion into his reading. I think that he has a very pleasant voice and believe that his narration added to my overall enjoyment of the story.
I would recommend this book to fans of contemporary romance. I thought that this was a very well-done romance with characters that were easy to love. I cannot wait to read more of this talented author’s work.
I received a copy of this audiobook from the author/publicist.
This was the was the book that had me falling in love with her work.
Great review Carole! I just love this author and I plan on working through her backlist soon. I know Nadene has really loved this series so I am excited to pick it up. Your review has me even more excited for it.
I have a pile of freebies from this author and have yet to read her work. The reviews are generally good though so I plan to get to them at some point.
I don’t think I’ve ever tried her books yet
I love books that really pull me in and make want to keep reading. This is an author that I’ve been wanting to try but somehow haven’t read any of her books yet.
Rebecca nd Pierce both have just complex backgrounds — I really do like the sound of this!
And I still have not tried this author
I find Foster’s backlist pretty intimidating and never know quite where to start. So glad you enjoyed this one!
