You might think I had it all - a career I loved, a supportive family, the Nixon metabolism but not the Nixon ears, and a salary that supported my lavish taste in designer shoes, fine wine, and lacy lingerie - but I had no one to share it with.
Until the day I ran into him - my one-night stand from college with the crooked smile, let's-get-out-of-here eyes, and dirty, dirty mouth. Cute and cocky then, today Levi Brooks is six feet four inches of hot bearded fantasy. A sexy single dad with broad shoulders, strong hands, and a fantastically big...heart. (I mean, it's massive. And generous. And it pumps so hard.... Um. Sorry. Lost my place.)
Being a good father means everything to him, but he's keeping me at a distance because he thinks I deserve someone better - a man who can give me more time, more attention, more of himself. He doesn't believe he could ever be enough, but he's wrong. He's everything.
Contains mature themes.

"A SWEET, FUN, HOT & ROMANTIC LOVE STORY"
Jillian is at her sister's wedding... watching and feeling the love that her two sister's have with their partners and she can't help but be a wee bit jealous and envious of what they clearly have. She's a 30 yr old Paediatric Doctor who fantasizes and dreams of finding love but in the meantime her battery operated best friend, and the thoughts of her College one time hookup with a drool-worthy guy, will just have to do. Then she turns around and crashes into a man mountain... a handsome sexy man mountain who she's intimately familiar with - Levi her College hook up.... and, just like that,11 years melted away.
Instant connection, instant chemistry and everything between them clicked straight off and it isn't long before they're whispering sweet words and getting hot n heavy.... but Levi, apart from being an Architect, has an 8 yr old son with autism who is the center of his life - leaving only one night a week for Jillian. At first it's all flirty and fine with sexting, dirty talk and stolen sex filled nights but, after a while, it's obvious to Jillian that Levi has a lot of insecurities and, no matter what she does, he is determined to keep the two parts of his life separate. Jillian tries to give Levi time and be understanding but after the intensity, the passion and the "I love you's" doesn't change a thing and Levi still keeps her apart from his 'other' life she finally reaches a crossroads.... and she knows that she can't stay on the road that leads to nowhere.
Loveable main characters who are, despite everything, totally devoted to each other, interesting and emotional plot that has depth and growth, great secondary characters made up of both families and all the up-to-date news from Skylar and Sebastian (book 1) and Natalie and Miles (book 2). This was a bitter-sweet romance, two people head over heels about each other but circumstances and a Father's misplaced insecurities kept them from reaching the HEA until......? Dual POV's, great narration, sweet character driven plot and could be a standalone.
Worth a credit? If the Happy Crazy Love series really has to end then what better way to do it than with this sexy 5 star listen created by it's gifted Author Melaine Harlow and the icing on the already delicious cake was the talented voices of Nelson Hobbs and Lucy Malone. Very creditworthy - as are books 1 and 2.
"I WANT MORE, MORE, MORE!"
I have fallen head over heels for this series. I love these characters, the storylines and all the 'real' that Melanie Harlow is bringing to the forefront. I adored Levi and Jillian, and I'm totally about to listen to this series again.
"Some sort of amazing"
The last of the sisters, Gillian, is the center of this book. Gillian is a doctor that rarely has time for anything. She reunites with a past hook up who has an autistic child that makes him incredibly busy as well.
This book tackles so many struggles that parents face... Especially when thinking about bringing a new person into your family. Then you add in an autistic child and it's complicated.
I absolutely loved it. I read all in one sitting. Couldn't stop.
Love this installment to a fun series. Great relationship between the sisters. Spot on description of autism. (My son has mild autism so I could relate.)
I cannot get enough of this series and is sad there are no more sisters! This book touched so many emotions, listening to it in the car, I even had to pull out the tissues! Jillian and Levi met years ago at a college party and hooked up in a closet(and what a line he used to get her there!). Fast forward 11 years later at Skylar and Sebastian's wedding, the literally bump into each other. Instant chemistry again. Life has changed Levi, he is now a single dad of an autistic son. He feels that to be a good father, he needs to give his full attention to Scottie and has real difficulty figuring out where Jillian fits in. I loved this story. Hearing the challenges that Levi faces with his son, and how he deals with them on a daily basis is a struggle and a blessing that Melanie Harlow portrays throughout the book. It is refreshing to have characters in novels deal with real life issues like this. I also enjoyed the interaction of Jillian's sisters and their spouses/boyfriends. While this could be read as a stand alone, it is fun to relive the previous books a little and have the history of them woven into the story. This story will take you through every emotion and bring you to a beautiful epilogue with the entire family.
Lucy Malone and Nelson Hobbs are one of the best narrating dual POV teams. They are incredible with the pace of their dialogue and can capture the emotion of each character, capturing your heart and placing it right into the story. You can't help but listen!
"Crazy For These Characters!"
With well done narration, the series comes to life on audio. Each separate couple brings their own story with its quirks and sweetness. By the end, the characters feel like family. Caution: begin with book one of the series!
"Great solid love story"
These narrators and this author are a match made in heaven. I've thoroughly enjoyed this entire series and am almost frustrated with myself for READING book 2 instead of listening...THAT is how good the narration is on these beauties. Oh well, listening to 1 & 3 isn't so bad I suppose! :)
Just a lovely, heartfelt, fun, sexy, steamy and fabulous read. Highly recommend.
I loved reading the 3 books in this series so much. They were easy, fun, and kept my attention all the way through. When they came out in audio book for I thought I'd buy them and I'm glad I did. Enjoyable to listen to.Narrators did a good job.
This was my first book by Melanie Harlow and I can say it won't be my last.
The narrators did an excellent job performing their parts. I loved everything about this audio!
