My life is a friggin’ fairytale - just not the kind any single girl would ever want to star in.
Like any good heroine, I have challenges to face. Getting my son to wear pants is one; dealing with my snooze-fest of a job is another. Then there’s the Beast, my freeloading brother who’s worn a permanent dent in the couch at my new place. And no fairytale would be complete without a smoking-hot prince, of course. Too bad he’s a complete ass.
My instincts scream at me to steer clear of Nate Murphy. Because, if life has taught me anything, there is no such thing as "happily ever after".
I may not be a superhero, but I do my best to come to the rescue when I’m needed. And, hey, I just moved halfway across the country after a single phone call from my mom. But being back home and taking on the responsibilities involved makes me a bit cranky at times. Unfortunately, the one time I completely lose my cool is in front of the hottest girl I’ve ever met. I’ve got my work cut out for me if I’m going to fix this. But I will fix this. I’ll be anything Laney Monroe needs me to be...a superhero, a prince, or just a guy she might take a chance on.

Fabulous Story & Narrationn🎧 A Heartfelt Delight!
Carolina Connections, Book 1
By: Sylvie Stewart
Narrated by: Alice Wander
I loved everything about this book, from Sylvie Stewart’s wonderful writing style to the storylines and characters she created. The story is interesting and realistic with a natural flow to it, it grabbed my attention right from the start and captivated it until the end. I adored these characters, they are charismatic and full of life. Laney Monroe is a single mom of a five year old boy named Rocco. She is a new homeowner settling in to a new neighborhood, her son is going to a new daycare too. Laney’s bother Gavin also lives with her, after a career ending accident he is still trying to find his way. Laney was happy when he finally landed a job. Nate Murphy was living in Texas, but when his Mom called stating his Dad suffered a heart attack he came back home to help out and run his Dad’s construction business. He meets Laney at a job site set for demolition, it was not the best first meeting he was grumpy and rude but Laney let him have it. Nate has an instant attraction to her and he sets motion to get to know her. Laney is resistant, turns out he is Gavin’s new boss plus he will be moving back to Texas. I loved how well plotted this story is and how it all plays out. Loved how Nate worked his way in to her life and how awesome he was with Rocco, who was just adorable. I liked the family dynamics too, Laney and her brother, all well as Nate’s family who are tight knit, his mom was hysterical. I highly recommend this sweet and delightful story there is never a dull moment there is plenty of great humor, some drama, a bit of angst and the start of a wonderful romance. It is the type of story that puts a smile on your face and keeps it there throughout. I still smile thinking about it and am looking forward to the next book in the series, Fiona’s story, Fiona is Laney’s best friend and she is a hoot. Thank you Sylvie Stewart for this wonderful story.
Alice Wander is a terrific narrator and voice performer. She brings these characters to life, give each their own voice and personality. She does a great job projecting the emotions of the characters as well as the drama of the story into her performance. She is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to.
