Publisher's Summary

Outspoken, daring, assertive. Nothing stands in Carla Jones’ way when she has her mind made up. Carla’s witty personality is a breath of fresh air to those around her. And someone who admires Carla from afar happens to be the only person who's invaded her dreams and awakened her passion for love. The problem is whenever their paths cross, it’s for a stimulating fleeting moment. When those moments end, his silence makes Carla wonder if their chemistry is a figment of her imagination. Clueless about his disposition, Carla decides to leave her options open for love even when her soul yearns for the man of her distant dreams. 

It was his heart he couldn’t ignore. 

World-renowned Architect Jacob Alexander Rose wants to stick to his daily routines and career-driven focus. Relationships are a thing of his past, and they never worked in his favor. But with every event he attends, so does the one who rules his cognitive mind - Carla Jones. Sensuous thoughts of her bombard him at every turn, making Jacob wonder if colliding with Carla is a part of his future he’s determined to fight off. 

Consumed with an ever-present dripping heat when their proximities converge, Jacob is torn between exploring their attraction or allowing the pain of a disappointing history to take precedence over what could’ve been.

Good Story

This was the last eligible Rose brother finding his true love. Carla & Jacob have been eyeing each other and flirting since book 4…I loved the build up….Carla & Jacob finally find the time to connect and hang out a bit, which leads to the two of them talking, taking a trip together and deciding to date exclusively. In comes the curveball, Lennox Jenkins….Carla’s Ex cheating boyfriend and Mayoral Candidate….Lennox comes in wreaking havoc, which causes a rift between Carla & Jacob….I must say, I didn’t like the way Carla decided to handle Lennox, Nevertheless, Lennox blackmails Carla and it looks like Jacob is finished with her for good until Jacob’s sister Phoebe and Tina (Carla’s best friend) help with damning information about Lennox. Something I didn’t understand is when Carla went to the doctor, why a blood & toxicology test wasn’t ran? Finally, all is resolved with Carla & Jacob and the couple get their HEA…although, there’s another twist with the students…..Of Course Wesleigh & Emmanuel Were Absolutely Amazing with the narration!

Dramatic as hell

I'm so happy this rose series is over. I love Stephanie Norris stories but this series became sooo repetitive and this story in particular was just predictable and overly dramatic 🙄. Great narration 👏

I love good romance….

And this was another one from Ms. Nicole Norris. It’s so warm and captivating. I was completely hooked. The only problem I had was the narrating. I’m use to Wesleigh. Her and Jakobi can take you into the book. I decided to try something new and listen to a book narrated by someone else, not to mention we have the same last name, so why not give him a chance. It’s wasn’t bad, but it could have been better, and I will leave it right there. I would love to continue the series of the Rose brothers but not if the narration is no good. Jakobi baby……

wonderful Family

That was a great series I was hoping that you can do a spin off for Mrs. Clark and the King. That had my interest peaked. I would love for momma to get real love and not just obligated love.

Good but

I LOVE Wesleigh Siobhan. However Emmanuel Ingram sounds more like a villain instead a lover. Gosh. He almost ruin the johnbrown story but I pressed through. It is for this reason I cannot listen to the rest of the Rose Books. I really wanted to I just CANNOT do that voice as a lover.

Lots of drama

This book was jam-packed with pure drama midway through after a slow start. The narrators did a great job with characters.
