Publisher's Summary

Self-made business owner Dale McGuire has always enjoyed two things in life: women and fast cars. Now in her mid-30s, she's restless and can't work out why. Then one day a 10-year-old boy turns up, claiming to be her son, and her simple ordered world turns upside down.

Rebecca Harper bears the emotional scars of her father's crimes, and now she has two rules: never let anyone get too close and never admit weakness. Thanks to an anonymous egg donor, infertility didn't stop her from having her son Jake. Now pregnant for a second time, she's horrified when Jake brings home the woman he believes is his other mother.

When distrust turns to understanding and passion, can Dale and Rebecca, two women bound by fate, make a family neither expected?

This was a beautiful romance

Jenny Frame created some very beautiful characters, even the villian was so perfect they made my skin crawl! With Nicola Vicotria Vincent delivering another wonderful performance, I highly recommend giving it a go.

OMG OMG OMG I LOVE THIS BOOK

How can I fully explain how much I love this story? I love every part of it, the ups and downs, the drama, the happiness, the love. And also the characters, I think I'll never forget them, they live in my heart now, Dale, Becca, Jake, Sam, Val, they were all unique and real.

The narrator did a fantastic job giving them each their own voice, perfectly transmitting every emotion, both good and bad. I felt everything the characters went through, like I was there with them and knew them my whole life.

I cannot recommend this book enough, I feel like I will never make it justice even if I use all the atoms in the universe to write about it. To anyone reading my meager review, do yourself a favor and buy this book, you won't regret it.

Jenny Frame and Nicola Victoria Vincent are a perfect match

Frame is one of my favorite authors of this genre, and Vincent makes her works come to life. As a queer woman who has listened to dozens if not hundreds of romance novels over the years, I recommend this and every other Frame/Vincent audiobook without reservation.

Unexpected, indeed!

It's not often that I take the time to write about a book I love, frankly there's so many out there, it's hard to choose. When I first started this book, I didn't realize how incredibly charming and fun it was going to be. I was just looking forward to another generic lesbian romance, but the author found a way to suck me completely into this little world. With just enough intrigue to make it even more enjoyable. The main characters were shown as human and flawed, but so very lovable, especially Dale! And the way they come around to realizing their feelings, well, let's just say I don't typically listen to audible books more than once (unless you were to get some Giselle Fox books, then it'd be repeat-O-Rama!) but I find this to be such a cleverly thought out and emotionally charged book, I just can't seem to get enough! The performance is wonderful, so much so I looked up other books she's read and have them in my queue now! Overall, great story! <3

Thawing of the ice queen

I loved this story and it’s characters. The narrator did a great job of changing the voices and making you imagine that these people actually exist. I cannot wait until the sequel comes out!

A Family At Last

Rebecca Harper and her son, Jake, are hidden from the world and that’s exactly what Rebecca want. When Jake find his biological mother, Rebecca’s life becomes a roller coaster. Dale Maguire is longing to have a family and love. Their story will have you smiling, laughing and crying, all at the same time.

not bad

This is my first audio book and I quite enjoyed it, not as much as reading but still. The characters were good the narrator was good with the accents. Just wondering how she knew what accents each character had. I enjoyed it all the same listening to it in my van.
