Description

The first book in a new series by Lucy Lennox!

Nico:

I left my family and tiny Texas hometown 15 years ago to escape small-town gossips and to give my mom and sister the chance at a better life. But when a phone call from an attorney back home informs me that my sister passed away, leaving me custody of her newborn baby, I'm shocked out of the steady life I've built for myself running a tattoo shop in San Francisco.

The thing is: I don't do babies. And I don't do small towns. Or commitment. And I especially don't do family. My plan is to go back to Hobie just long enough to sign adoption papers, giving my niece the kind of stable, loving family I could never provide.

But the moment I meet my niece in the arms of Weston Wilde, my sister's best friend and the town's handsome doctor, my plans begin to change. Because suddenly, I see a different future. One with the very thing I thought I never deserved: a family. If only I can convince West that I'm not the same good-for-nothing kid ready to bolt when things get tough.

Weston:

There's one thing I know for sure about Nico Salerno: he was a good-for-nothing as a kid and judging by the purple-haired, tattooed punk who shows up at his sister's funeral, he hasn't changed. There's no way I'm letting him take custody of my best friend's baby.

But the more time I spend around him, the more I realize that his rough exterior is just a shell and that beneath all the tattoos is a scared, insecure man searching for a place to belong. And pretty soon I know exactly where he belongs: in my bed and by my side.

The problem is, he abandoned his family once before, how do I know that if we become a family he won't do it again?

Narrator Michael Pauley Blew it out of the Water!

Would you consider the audio edition of Facing West to be better than the print version?

I would have enjoyed this story as a print book, but I'm so glad I listened to the audiobook first. The performance was excellent. I'll get into that in the question specifically about the narrator.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite characters were the saucy grandpas who couldn't help meddling. They were always there to be supportive and give the main characters a kind nudge in the right direction.

What does Michael Pauley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Hot Dayum!
Michael Pauley is ridiculously good. Not only did he read each first-person section in character (it switches from Nico to West every other chapter), he did it with emotion, excellent timing, and recognizable voice differentiation for all the secondary characters. Even though he had a limited range of voices (everyone does who isn't Mel Blanc, after all), I still knew which character was talking.
Narrators are a dime a dozen, but really GOOD ones are harder to find. Especially for books with graphic sex scenes. And Michael's voice was pure sex when it came down to it.
There were a couple awkward moments, like a word mispronunciation or really emotional moment that didn't quite make it, but otherwise I would actively seek out this narrator again.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There was, but that would be a spoiler, now, wouldn't it?
Let's just say, there was some breaking down of walls, crying, and a tender interaction that hadn't previously been possible.

Any additional comments?

If you're into emotional connections, seriously sexy times, true love conquering all, two tough men loving a baby, and happily ever afters, you won't be disappointed.

Better than the Marion series

I liked the Marion series, but this is my favorite Lennox novel so far. Characters were dynamic and endearing- can't wait for more in the series.

Sweet Love Story

Definitely worth the listen. I am a huge Michael Pauley fan, however, thought the accents may have been a bit much in this book.

Good Time in Texas

I loved this book. The mains were hot as Hades, with a touch of bad boy tossed in. As a born and bred Texan myself, I can attest to the lovely drawl that West has. Down home boy for sure y'all! I don't like to spoil too much, but the passion that ignites between West and Nico is a true test of wills, one that you need to read to truly understand. Give it a chance and have a good time down here in Texas.

Lightning strikes twice!!!

I for one will be waiting on pins and needles for the next installment of this series. So far it's as wonderful and whimsical as the Made Marian series. I didn't thing that Lucy Lennox could top the character Ganny in the Marian series but boy did she! This starts with Nico's story. I loved Nico from the previous series and Lucy nails it!!! The main characters are interesting and worth caring about. In typical fashion all the emotions are there. To hear Nico's backstory tore at my heart and made me love this character even more. If you have read the Made Marian series you are going to love this one just as much. If you haven't read them this novel can be read on its own. Well done Lucy Lennox well done!!!

This is such a lovely story!

Niko Salerno receives a letter from an attorney stating that his sister has died and he has custody of his four month old neice. so he leaves his tatoo shop in San Francisco and goes back to Hobie, Texas.

He clashes with the doctor who is taking care of her and with nearly everyone else in town. What follows is a beautiful love story.

The narrator developes a soft Texas accent and fits in to the story perfectly.

amazing new series

Amazing new Series by Lucy Lennox. I absolutely loved made Marion series and am exited about this new one! Story was typical to Lucy: sizzling heat between charakters, alot of fast developing feelings , a little bit angst right before the end and awesome happy ending. She manages to write the perfect side charakters not to mention the couple faling in love and her writing makes you involved in the story so much, it's like you know everyone . When Griffin from Made Marion series "showed up" in this book my heart was bursting , like I just seen a good friend that haven't been around in a while and whom I missed very much. Narrator did an amazing job like always and made an amazing book into even better one. This book is Deffinetly one of my favourite Lucy's works - Borrowing Blue still nr 1, but this one gets the second place in my heart .
