"A hilarious, tender, and altogether life-affirming gem of a book." --Emily Henry, bestselling author of Beach Read

A brilliant and touching romantic comedy about two polar opposites, one adorable dog, and living every day to its fullest.

When Vanessa Price quit her job to pursue her dream of traveling the globe, she wasn't expecting to gain millions of YouTube followers who shared her joy of seizing every moment. For her, living each day to its fullest isn't just a motto. Her mother and sister never saw the age of 30, and Vanessa doesn't want to take anything for granted.

But after her half sister suddenly leaves Vanessa in custody of her baby daughter, life goes from "daily adventure" to "next-level bad" (now with bonus baby vomit in hair). The last person Vanessa expects to show up offering help is the hot lawyer next door, Adrian Copeland. After all, she barely knows him. No one warned her that he was the Secret Baby Tamer or that she'd be spending a whole lot of time with him and his geriatric Chihuahua.

Now she's feeling things she's vowed not to feel. Because the only thing worse than falling for Adrian is finding a little hope for a future she may never see.

I'm in love with BOTH of the main characters. They are incredibly likeable and their story was entertaining as hell. Also the narration, especially the male narrator, was ON POINT. I was laughing so hard with the way he voiced Adrian's personal assistant.

I love Zack Webber and the way he narrates. Only giving 4 stars because I think the end was a bit rushed.

A solid five stars! Abby Jimenez is an amazing writer. Full stop. She is so good at drawing you into the story, the characters, and life. Her characters deal with significant challenges and tragedies that real people go through every day. Her stories are realistic, emotional, funny, and beautifully written.I loved this book and found myself completely invested in Vanessa and Adrian's love story. It was perfectly narrated by Christine Lakin and Zachary Webber, who made the emotions and chemistry between these characters jump right off the page. Truly outstanding performances by both of them. I highly recommend this entire series.

Really loved their story, my only negative is the use of the scoffed and incredulous.

Holy crap, this is a great book! I purchased it because of Zachary and I read/listened to Abby’s The Happy Ever After Playlist and was so surprised that it was connected. Well, i only figured it out after i finished this. I was eating and thought the painter sounds familiar and checked my audible library and boom! Adrian had a cameo on that book hahahaha! He’s the cousin date that gave his all to flirt Sloan but nada lmao. Now i need to buy Kirsten’s book because she was the crazy bitch in that book and i want to laugh but Zach is not the narrator oh well. Sorry, back to THIS book, i have never laughed and cried so much in a book, as in you’ll laugh as much as you’ll ball out from the story. There are books where you laugh so hard and will just give you 2-3 tears but never a glass or maybe Im just hormonal but even so, buy this one or better yet use your credit - that’s what i did bec Im so broke but my happiness is key to my sanity so sue me. But if i can afford, guaranteed, i’ll buy it for me and for my friends who I know will lust over Zachary’s voice, that’s how great this book is. Period. Oh, i love Christine too. I usually have issues with the female narrator, but none with her. Great casting! Thank you!

This is an amazingly emotional story. I laughed until my sides hurt and cried like a baby. Thank you Abby Jimenez for this heartwarming love story. And as usual Mr Webber did an incredible job bringing his character to life. I also enjoyed Ms Lakin as Vanessa. I have listened to it twice. Five star recommendation.
