Publisher's Summary

A best friends-to-lovers romance gets complicated when an accidental pregnancy disrupts Katherine McCullough’s plans in this coming-of-age romance from best-selling author, Lydia Michaels.

Kate McCullough has always been a good girl, but when one bad choice lands her in a heap of trouble, her entire life changes in the blink of an eye. If not for her accidental friendship with Anthony Marcelli, she’d be lost.

Captivated by her wild charm and natural beauty, Anthony pushes for more than friendship, only to have Kate pull back. He’s determined to show her how great they could be as a couple, but she’s the strong-willed sort, and she is adamant that they should only be friends. Refusing to give up, he risks everything to prove her wrong—even if that means going toe-to-toe with the craziest McCullough of all—her father.

Best-selling author, Lydia Michaels, has created an unforgettable family saga bursting with sizzling secrets and scandalous moments in this award-winning series, McCullough Mountain, where each story can be listened to as a stand-alone!

enjoyable listen

I read the book first, and listened a couple of weeks later and enjoyed it just as much the 2nd time. the narrator did a great job with the Irish accent, and I loved how she made Ant sound. it wasn't overly forced between the male and female voices. for the story, I just loved how Ant handled everything. we didn't see as much from him in this series, but I do remember him more from Jasper Falls, which now I want to go reread!

friendship is the basis for their forever love

Kate and Anthony's love starts as friendship, for Kate, who needed a friend. Anthony was enamored front the start. Kate finds herself in a situation of facing single motherhood after her dead beat 'boyfriend' gets her pregnant and wants nothing to do with her or a baby. A senior in high school who thought her life was just starting, realized her life would never be the same.
I'm so impressed with her maturity as a young woman, barely an adult, facing such big life changes.
Anthony is no less impressive with his big heart and bottomless love for Kate.

I'm not going to lie, I adore the McCullough clan so hard. I can't devour these books fast enough.

This is a standalone book in a larger series. While you could read just one book and be satisfied you got your HEA, you are denying yourself all the feels and love if you stop at just one story in this series.

If you're like me, you will want all this small town goodness wrapped up in this series and the Jasper Falls series that follows!

Amber Battaglia narrates another gem and her accents for these characters are fabulous!! it's not always easy to narrate a male voice, but she nailed Anthony perfectly!!

This wonderful book is Katie and Anthony's story. The emotions, the struggles and the experience. I really love all the McCullough love story.

This McCullough family! I’d love to be amongst them!

Lydia Michael’s is fast becoming a must read/listen author for me. The McCullough family is an immediate draw for me. This big, loud, protective family is one I’d love to be a part of! It’s easy to feel that due to the authors writing style. Drawn in and planted in the middle makes the reading journey easy! It’s a series I will listen to multiple times and still love it!

Amber Battaglia does exceedingly well with the narration and I could and will listen to more from her!!
