Publisher's Summary

The storm. The man. Both come without warning.

My heart opens to Cooper Haywood the moment we meet. How can it resist? He's charming, devastatingly handsome, and sweeps me off my feet before I realize the impact he's making. And then it's too late.

We fall too fast to worry about the consequences. We love so hard that we ache when we're apart. Even though I have a past that still haunts me and he has a future that could put us at risk, none of that matters when we're together.

Until it does. And then everything changes.

Although the best thing he ever gave me now calls me Mommy, I can't help but wonder if Cooper Haywood and that fateful storm were one and the same.

Swoon Worth and so romantic

I must say that I think this was the most romantic story that I have read in a long time. You can't help but fall in love with Cooper and Story, their chemistry is perfect. They are the kind of couple that you want to see together forever. But don't be surprised when you find out that S.L. Scott has a few tricks up her sleeve with this story, as much as you love Cooper and Story, there are other characters that you will loathe. This story has all of the feels, heartbreak, joy, happiness, betrayal, and redemption. I couldn't put this book down and I still can't stop thinking about it even though I finished the book. It is a must read with a HEA.

Stephen Dexter and Ava Erickson are perfection!

Love This True Love story!

I love when stories take you on his lifetime journey. This was written amazingly! I never not once was bored with a story. I love that this is 100% about a true love story! There was loyalty in this couple, communication. Sincerely enjoyed.
Narration with Ava and Steven was amazing. They really brought this couple to life.

The Best!!!!

Do you have that book that you wish you could read again for the first time just to experience all the raw emotion again? If you don't know what I am talking about, read this book! Cooper and Story's love story is one written in the stars, if they could just stay in their own world. Cooper is completely smitten with Story the first time he lays eyes on her, despite her being at a party with his enemy. Fast forward 6 months, a storm rolls through the town knocking out power everywhere but Story's cafe and apartment. From the moment they begin interacting, both of them know they are in trouble. Cooper has finally found someone who he wants to be good for and Story finds the one person that will help her learn to trust again. For 6 months, they live in a bliss they think will last forever, but just like the storm that brought Cooper into the cafe, their world is blown apart. Can true love overcome every outside obstacle, or will a mother's love turn outweigh their happily ever after? This book is definitely a one click!

I give up!

Not sure why so many stellar reviews on this one. I've given 3-1/2 hrs of my time, and there still really isn't a plot, nor is the dialog that interesting. Maybe I'll come back and finish someday, but there are FAR better romances with great story lines out there. I enjoy Ava Erickson as a narrator, but I don't care for Stephen Dexter's voice and narration. He sounds like he's trying too hard. Definitely not the book for me.

S .L Scott, you are fantastic!

Cooper Haywood sees Story at a party, she
captivates him. When he meets her later,
he's overwhelmed by her kindness. This
book will make you cry, laugh, break your
heart. You will believe that true love
never dies. Ava Erickson was great as
Story. Stephen Dexter was new as a
narrator to me, he was perfect as Cooper!
S.L Scott, I can't think of anyone who
writes love stories like you. Thank you!

Powerful Love Story!

The first line sets the tone and foreshadows the story..."They came without warning - the storm and the man. One day, I'll look back and realize they were one and the same."
Story Salenger is a senior in college and works at The Bean There coffee shop to pay the bills. Her background is a sad one, with an abusive stepfather who killed her mother. She has the eye of an artist and finds beauty around her. When she met Cooper, she found what made her happy and felt they were meant to be. Their happy ending wouldn't come for six years, if at all. Cooper Reed Haywood was, indeed, a storm. He was born into great wealth and his name carried with it a legacy of power. He didn't know love, except for the love from Patrice Keller, his nanny when he was a boy. His parents were more concerned with the social standing the name Haywood brought with it, whereas to Cooper, it was an albatross around his neck. He wanted to live his life his own way. He was an angry and troubled teen, prone to getting into trouble that, one day, he wouldn't be able to escape and would upend his life. Cooper and Story fell fast and hard, deeply in love and looking at a future together, but his family stepped in with a contract to sign.
The Best I Ever Had is a book filled with emotions so strong that the love and tears bleed out onto the page. This is what romance should be!
The narration is beautifully done by Ava Erickson and Stephen Dexter. Their voices blend perfectly as a duo and, individually, their male and female voices are distinct and authentic.
