Publisher's Summary

I first met William McAlister when I was just a teenager.

He was handsome, had a beautiful wife, and was on the verge of success, having just joined my father as his business partner. Mr. McAlister was full of smooth charm, but back then he was barely a blip on my radar. Just a family friend.

Fast forward 10 years: I'm 25 years old and a single mom trying to make things right for her seven-year-old son. I've made some mistakes, grappled with my demons, and now I'm back in the city of Vancouver, getting a second chance at a better life.

I've started by working for my father's production company as an executive assistant. My first day on the job and I already know I could have a promising career there.

That is, until I see Will McAlister for the first time in a decade.

Now recently divorced and as sophisticated as always, Will has gone from being my father's friend and business partner to something so much more.

Contains mature themes.

May-December taboo romance

This was an interesting topic for a romance, in that the heroine first meets the hero when she's a teenager. He's married at that time and a friend of her fathers who work in special effects for movies. She later meets him again when her father makes her the hero's personal assistant. The hero is now divorced and is attracted to her despite the over 10 yr age difference. Things are complicated by the fact the heroine has a young child by an abusive relationship in the past and that her parents see her as nothing more than a screw-up. Narration was well performed.

I couldn't finish

This book may be something that would interest gen-xers or Millennials, but for this baby boomer it was a bit too crass.

Amazeballs loved the story. Will what a dream man

the male narrator sucked at interpreting the female voice, but other than that I loved the story line.

I only bought this because i love Alexander C....i was expecting more with it being an older man younger woman story line . 😕 I don't know...it was slow and the female character did not know if she wanted to be loved. I hate that. Oh well!

Before I Ever Met You...

I like Karina Halle and I liked the story but the narration from Jillian Macie did not work for me. She was very mono toned.

Terrible Male Narration

Okay, I cannot stand a bad narrator and Alexander Cendese does a awful female voice. AWFUL! I love KH books but I can’t listen to this one.

AMAZING!!!!

I don't ever care for these kinds of novels, but when a friend suggested it, I decided to give it a try. I couldn't stop. By far the best story ever. I'm not sure if it's because I felt a personal conviction/connection but man was it good!

Pleasant romance

Nothing too scathing, nothing too over the top. Romance and a new refreshing storyline.

Don't waste a credit

I wish I could remember what was going through my mind when I bought this book. The narration was terrible, the story line was blazay , and the language much too foul. I was hoping for a nice romance but instead listened to the two narrators (the woman was slightly better than the man with character voices) butcher the story with their inflections. The whole thing felt false and contrived.

5 stars!

This is my first Karina Halle novel, but will not be my last. This was perfection. The narrators were phenomenal and I loved every minute! If you are looking for a swoony, age gap, steamy read then this is it.
