Publisher's Summary

Sometimes you get a second chance at a first impression.

Mary Trace is bright, bubbly, and back in the dating pool in her mid-30s. All of her closest friends are in love, and she refuses to miss out on romance. So when a regular customer at her trendy Brooklyn boutique wants to set Mary up on a blind date with her son, she gives a hesitant yes. John Modesto-Whitford is gorgeous and well-groomed, so maybe dinner won’t be a total bust - until he drops a less-than-flattering comment about Mary’s age.

Desperate to be nothing like his snake of a politician father, public defender John Modesto-Whitford prides himself on his honesty and candor. But his social awkwardness and lack of filter just blew it with the most beautiful woman he’s ever dated.

Luckily, Mom’s machinations keep Mary and John running into each other all summer long, and soon they resort to fake dating to get her to back off. When their pretense turns to real friendship - and some surprisingly hot chemistry - can these two stubborn individuals see past their rocky start to a rock-solid future together?

Very sweet romance

I loved the characters in this book. The guy was great and I wish more romance novels had guys like him. He wasn’t a player and there wasn’t any other women drama, which I hate and seem to have a hard finding a novel that doesn’t have that. She was great too, strong and independent. I loved that she was in her late 30s. As I get older I find it hard to read about young 20s. Loved so many things about this one. I definitely recommend it! Narrator was wonderful too!

Pornographic

I was so disappointed in this book. I’ve listened to two other books by this author and they weren’t nearly as filthy as this one. I’ll be skipping all other books by this author. The content of this one is beyond awful.

Another sweet story from Cara Bastone

So this is splitting hairs, but I love Cara Bastone’s other books more than this one. Don’t get me wrong - this one was good. But it didn’t have quite the same amount of magic. More “good” than “amazing!!!” (which is how I’ve felt about the previous 3 books of hers). Sweet characters. A lovely narrator.

Another amazing story from Cara Bastone

I’ve listened to all of Cara Bastone’s books now and I continue to be amazed at what an amazing storyteller she is. Her development of the characters in her books is enthralling, and the way she weaves a love story sucks you in and leaves you wanting more. I also love how she sets all of these books in Brooklyn and how the city becomes it’s own living, breathing character.

Mary and John’s story is so beautifully told in this book, and their passion for one another is palpable thanks to the excellent narration.

Thriving

It is by far my favorite Bastone book so far.
it is witty and full of laughter and most impressive love scenes. Very well written and played out. A must "read".

My favorite of the series!

I loved Mary and John. Their relationship was sweet! The narrator was super cute and was able to narrate in both genders without making me cringe which doesn't always happen (like during book 2 of this series). Worth the credit!

Perfect Ending to a Great Series

I'm sad this series seems to be over. The way the books were written left me wanting more. The buildups were slow and meaningful. The character development made sense. And the love connections themselves were just right. I loved the differences between John and Mary in this book. Both of them dealing with their own insecurities, not realizing at first what the other one was struggling with. It made their eventual get together that much sweeter and meaningful. And I must say the narration for this book was well done. The second book had an awful narration but the first and third were perfect. Cara Bastone is a wonderful writer and I look forward to seeing what else she has in store.
