Publisher's Summary

James:

My assignment is simple: Go to the Cape and seal the real estate deal for my most important client. No problem. I’m good at my job, I know how to close a sale, and this time won’t be any different.

Until I meet Sawyer, the sexy young bartender I accidentally kiss in the broom closet. Turns out, he’s one of the owners I’m here to negotiate with.

Okay, so that complicates things. As does the fact that he doesn’t want to sell. Or that we can’t keep our hands off each other despite being on opposite sides. And most of all...that I might be falling for him even though I know better. I’ve made the mistake of falling for a younger man before and I won’t do it again.

Sawyer:

For me, family is everything, and nothing represents ours more than the Sea Sprite, the motel that’s been in my family for eighty years. Sure, others (*cough*James*cough*) may describe it as rundown or derelict or in desperate need of a wrecking ball. But I call it our legacy.

I’ve got plans - big plans to renovate the motel back to its vintage glory. The only thing standing in my way is James Allen, the fancy-schmancy lawyer from New York with his adorable smile, jaw-dropping assets, and his client’s millions of dollars.

James seems hellbent on destroying my future. But maybe there’s a way for us to build a new one together...

not their best work

some of my favorite Audiobooks are written by these authors, but this book comes across (imo) as amateurish and formulaic. sorry - could not finish.

Enemies to lovers with all the feels

I’m a huge Lucy Lennox/Molly Maddox fan and when I found out this book was coming to audio, I was ecstatic. Enemies to Lovers in one of my favorite tropes – when it’s done well. In this case, it’s done very well.

Sawyer owns a family caravan park by the ocean. It’s been in his family for eighty years and despite its desperate need for renovation, he’s dedicated to keeping it going. He lost his parents tragically when he was in high school and has, very recently, lost both grandparents. He’s a quarter owner of the property with his three uncles and where he sees potential, they see dollar signs.

James is a big shot New York lawyer. He works for a ruthless man who decides he wants property and will do anything to acquire it. Often at the point he loses interest – for him it’s all about the chase, the hunt. James lives on adrenaline, and securing the property in this little itty bitty town on Cape Cod is a no-brainer. He just has to see how little he can pay for the valuable property.

So there’s the conflict – James wants to buy and Sawyer doesn’t want to sell. And it’s all about the arguments and debates and, eventually, the reality. That each finds the other sexy. That there’s good within each of them. That they might even fall in love. With a conflict so strong and defined, and with no way out, I did wonder how I was going to get my happy ending – one would have to yield, right? Give up everything he’s wanted?

Ah, but I wasn’t creative enough – which is why I’m the reader and Maddox/Lennox are the authors. I got my happy ending with all the wonderful feels without feeling cheated. Man, Sawyer and James had to work hard for their happily ever after, but I think that made it all the more special.

Okay, time to mention Michael Dean. I’ve said so many good things about him, but it bears repeating that he’s talented and did a great job with this audio. There are two more books in the series and I can’t wait.

He would hate me when he found out. - James

Would I listen to it again: yes
Did the story keep me engaged: yes
Was I invested in the characters: yes

Story comment: easy pace, interesting characters and an entertaining story - i really enjoyed the last few chapters, seeing Wells and Conor again.
• Lawyer for a big city developer goes after family owned Inn • good character development • interesting cast of supporting characters • all the warmth that comes with a small town where everybody is "family".

Narrator comment: I enjoyed Michael Dean's narration of BTW. I had no problem distinguishing characters and the rhythm, inflections and intonations all worked to bring the book to life.

Wonderful

Michael Dean is my favorite narrator! The numerous voices brings a story to life.
Lennox books have rarely failed to please. I’d hoped the others in this series would be set in the same town. As I love series stories.
Regardless, this lifted my spirits.

Great!

As expected, Michael Dean did an amazing job!
As for the book itself: the story was great, the characters were great, and the ending was even better. Hopefully we’ll get more books in this series and Oscar will get his HEA soon.

another win for Lucy

Yes, this book is good, but honestly by this point, that can't be much of a surprise. Lucy Lennox just knows how to make me FEEL things.

Michael Dean is terrific.

This is the first story where I had so much empathy for Sawyer; it brought tears to my eyes. Michael Dean spoils me for other narrators.

Sweetest Sunset

I know it's overused, and I'm not the biggest fan of the saying though I like the general idea behind it - anyway, the point is if I had to describe this book in a few words, it would be: it is what it is.

I love how we're shown that no matter how you try to control things, life happens, and ultimately, you end up where you should. And this couple....this couple is everything. I need more.

These sisters know how to write a story, and Michael Dean is the king of excellent book narration. I definitely recommend.

Yet another great book!

OMG! Omg! Perfect book, wonderful narrator - I missed you guys so much. I love this series and really wish for Oscar’s book to be next or... not? Maybe a couple more before the epic (I’m sure it would be exactly that) book about our boy Oscar. Thank you authors for such a great time ❤️
