Publisher's Summary

"First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes a-" Hold up. You're joking, right? As if life works off a neat little list like that, moving down, checking things off before jumping to the next task. We're not married. We're not lovers. Hell, we're hardly even friends.

Noah Wilson isn't exactly "life partner" material, and he sure as hell isn't "father material." He's my older brother's best friend, and has been off limits, sworn off, locked in the highest tower and out of reach since we met over 10 years ago. With his devilish good looks, tattoos, motorcycle, and trail of broken hearts and tears, I've had good reason to stay away from the bad boy my mother warned me about. Until one night. One stupid, regrettable night that changed both of our lives forever. And now I only have nine months to decide our fate, to see if Noah's rebel heart is capable of anything more than a one-night stand. This isn't a love story. This is a life story. And life doesn't go according to plan.

Sweet and funny

Pretty good story (a little sappy but I couldn't help but enjoy it.) I'd never heard this narration team before but I loved Romy Nordlinger and Phillip Alces. They really made this come alive for me and I listened to it in one day cause I got so into it.

A good story

This book won't be one of my favorites, it's not one I'll come back to but it was good. The author did a good job of weaving a believable story (although I really think AA should have been in one of the character's futures, no one drinks like that and then just gets over it with no help!) I thought the narrators did an awesome job though. Overall, good job!

Whinny heroine

I couldn’t finish this story. I love romance and that’s all I listened to. However, I am picky when it comes the main characters, especially the heroine. Whiny heroine it’s like nail in a chalk board. Ugh! I wanted to like this story but can’t stand the whinny. If this story is for you, enjoy!

I liked it

I am more of the erotic novel reader. I took a blind chance on this book and was surprised how much I actually enjoyed its sweetness!

A Decent Story

I found this book to be decent. It keep me entertain through the whole book. I liked both the characters and found their struggles to be believable. I didn't like the way the author skipped weeks and sometimes months in the same chapter. I guess I just found it weird. There were a lot of weeks skipped in the same chapter and there were place in a chapter where things would end and it would move on to something else, which got confusing for a moment. The narrator's weren't that great but I was able to listen despite it.

Sweet love story

This was a sweet love story but it seemed more of a guide to pregnancy Q & A than a romance novel. I wasn't a big fan of the narration either.

great story, poor narration

I loved the book. but the narrators didn't fit at all with characters and it was really hard picturing this couple with a guy who sounds like spencer and a spinster type lady. sorry.
