Publisher's Summary

What if, one morning, you look in the mirror and no longer recognize the person looking back?

When Leelo can no longer identify herself by the roles that once defined her, it's both terrifying and liberating. Oh, she feels the loss, grief, and the anger, but when she inherits property up north, she jumps at the promise of freedom and independence. Yet, not everyone in her new community is what they seem, starting with the surly mountain man down the road.

As owner of the local fishing lodge, Roar is content with his everyday life. And the older he gets, the less he appreciates change. So, when a blue-haired, tattooed "city girl" moves into the old motel, shaking up his daily routine, he’s none too pleased. Still, something about the woman’s easy smile and almost reckless grit has him step up as her keeper.

Not your typical romance

Leelo has reinvented herself from the docile stay-at-home mom to the take-charge, tattooed, multicolored hair bad@$$. She moves to a small town just outside of Sault Ste. Marie, Canada, where she has inherited her uncle’s rundown bar/motel. Leelo’s first run-in with her neighbor, lodge owner-Roar Doyle-will have you rolling with laughter. In spite of Roar’s misgivings about Leelo, he can’t hep but be attracted to her. But this isn’t all fun and discovery for this pair, someone is playing costly ‘pranks’ on Leelo. Will she give up and return to the city? Throw in an @$$hat ex, bratty daughter and Roar’s sort-of-ex and we have enough drama to keep us entertained. Enjoy these stories of mature adults.

Leelo and Roar

This is a great starting over story. Getting a new start and overcoming obstacles along the way. I loved that this was an older couple with adult children. Great romance and I would recommend this book. I enjoyed the audio as well.

A wonderful love story!💜

I loved that this couple was in their 40’s still longer than me but totally relatable.
Great characters with some unexpected twists. Family drama and sexy times this book has everything.
The narration was fantastic.
This is book two but it’s a complete standalone with an HEA!
I recommend this book/series.

Keeping it real!

Another great read by Freya Barker! It did take a bit to warm up to the heroine, Leelo. She had been walked all over during her first marriage so I'm sure we were just seeing her deciding to not take crap anymore. At times it felt like she was overreacting. I can also appreciate that the author probably did this on purpose. She's really good about creating flawed characters that you can relate to.

I loved the hero, Roar. He's described as a hot lumberjack that's moody and growly. My cup of tea! These two did not hit it off right away but Roar was just such a good guy that came to Leelo's rescue no matter how stubborn she was. I loved him.

It doesn't take long for more to develop between these two. I really like how we got quality time with them together. Leelo is a divorced mom with grown kids who do play a part in their story. There is a small bit of other woman drama and a jerk of an ex husband. Neither thing had me loving this story any less.

Great story.

Anneliese Rennie and Austin Barringer we’re fantastic as Leelo and Roar. They really embodied the characters in this book.
Leelo and Roar have each in their own way have had devastation is in their lives and had to create new dreams for themselves. Freya writes such great characters and watching these two develop a friendship and then a relationship was a beautiful thing.

Exceptional in every way!

Audiobook: Narrators - Anneliese Rennie & Austin Barringer

What an exceptional narration! This was my first by Mr. Barringer and holy heck, I was completely blown away. He gave his performance so much more than what you normally find in audio-books and I’ll definitely be looking for more from him! Ms. Rennie also brought out these characters with plenty of drama.

I went into this one blind but secure, because anything by this author is going to be safe for me as well as have all the requirements I look for in a great book. So I was a bit surprised by this heroine, Leelo, but I quickly learned to love her. I thought I was going to have an issue but I soon saw her for what she was underneath all the exterior as well as her sometimes harsh demeanor.

Roar on the other hand had me falling in love immediately. Big, bearded, grumpy with few words spoken...oh yeah! Add in that Leelo aggravated him on a whole new level than most and he had me completely.

While this had some drama pertaining to the business Leelo was trying to kick back into gear, the relationship did not. That doesn’t mean there weren’t times this couple had their flare ups and I actually loved watching them deal with them...and make up.

I truly enjoyed everything about this story as well as all the secondary characters and I hope we get to see more of them in the future.

Sweet,realistic story of a 40ish couple with an air of mystery

No billionaires, sports stars or perfect people here. Or crushing angst . Instead, a gruff hardworking man meeting his match with a recently divorced
woman finding herself with a much needed change in scenery. Both are carrying baggage accumulated from living life for 40+ years. Slow burn romance mixes well with a growing mystery occurring outside their control. Story builds to a satisfying conclusion.

This is my first listen of Austin Barringer. He does a great job and I hope to listen to him in the future😍. Anneliese Rennie does a fine job with the tough as nails heroine. But, I actually enjoyed her supporting characters better.

Second Chapter Romance

A great second chapter romance set in a beautiful small town setting. I enjoyed the cast of characters that come with the setting and life stage of the main characters. There are laughs and swoons and heart strings tugged. All the feelings that you read a romance for.

The performances by the narrators perfectly fit the parts. I enjoyed both and will look for more books narrated by each of them.

second chances

This book is about second chances and not necessarily with each other but life in general. I really enjoyed it. It is well written and narrated!

an enjoyable adult romance

The narration was excellent. This was Austin Barringer's first narrated book???? Well, I want more of him, wow! Great voice. Anneliese Rennie made a great Leelo - voice seemed to fit the character.

This is a complete standalone as I don't think anyone from book 1 even made an appearance (side note - I recommend and really enjoyed book 1).

Both MCs are in their mid-40s so its an underrepresented age group that many readers have been asking for.

I think I enjoyed what I thought the book was going to be about more than the actual storyline. I love outdoorsy books so when you have a fishing lodge owner in a small northern town I wanted more of that and less renovation of a hotel. I didn't care for that storyline at all - it wasn't a mystery and it dragged on. 3.5 stars on that part.

Loved Roar! Leelo was good but honestly, what's with all the crying/about to cry - it was in almost every chapter. I was ready to slap her - Jesus woman get a grip.

Book 2 Standalone

I completely enjoyed this book. I loved the characters. Everyone seemed so real. I was totally wrapped up in this story and was trying to guess who what and why the entire time. The narrators were great and made the book that much better. HEA. I recommend this book. 🎧 Audiobook Obsession

Fabulous!

I have romped through this delightful audio, beautifully performed by Austin Barringer and Anneliese Rennie. With attractive, interesting characters and a sense of the effort in making a new family, I found myself immersed in the story and carried along by the voices telling it. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

sweet and sexy with suspense and drama!

Rating - story 4.5, narration 4
This is the second audio book in this series I've listened to and I really enjoyed it, even more than the first.

Leelo inherits a run down motel from her uncle in a remote but beautiful part of the Canadian countryside and moves there alone determined to make a fresh start. She soon finds out it's not just the amount of repairs she's up against, as a series of mysterious and increasingly damaging events would have left her faltering if not for Roar, the grumbly, growly, infuriating but very handsome owner of the neighbouring fishing lodge.

Leelo is sassy and feisty with a lot of grit and determination but hides her insecurities well, thanks to past treatment from her very selfish, nasty ex husband (who does make an unwelcome appearance). She is at times brash and short fused, however, the more Roar gets to know her, the more he sees and the more she slips under his defences. I really liked her!

Both narrators were very good. Austin Barrenger was perfect for Roar, a man of few words but I could really picture this gruff but caring, beautiful mountain man.
The voice of Annelise Rennee also gave me this perfect picture in my head of the blue haired, tattooed, gutsy, brave, independent with an air of vulnerability woman Leelo was.

Told in dual pov, this was a sweet, sexy, heartfelt, slow burn romance. I wouldn't say enemies to lovers but they certainly managed to rub each other up the wrong way to start with! It was laced with good humour, emotion, drama, mystery, suspense and danger but was really well paced throughout and I loved how the locals and Leelo's family pulled together when it really mattered. I also loved the fact they were older, mid 40's with all the life baggage I can relate to, to overcome.
Thoroughly enjoyable and I will look forward to the next in the series

Talkative + Grunting = Love

I read this book when it was first released and loved it, but over time Audible has become a must, this book is taken to another level by Anneliese Rennie and Austin Barringer, Anneliese brings Leelo to life and for me has the maturity this character needs, she gives you a women tying to find herself and challenging everything she was before, she's an inspiration to the mature lady. Austin is brilliant his voice is deep strong and sexy, and is so right for Roars voice, he's funny caring and get with his hands.
Two people not looking for love find it through the challenges that life throws at them, it also describes this beautiful area making me want to visit. You have love, laughter, intrigue, family and life threatening events throughout this book just brilliant. A fantastic read.
