A Little Too Late by Staci Hart
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars from Ari
Narration: Brian Pallino, Jennifer Stark
Length: 7 hrs, 24 mins
For nine long months, I’ve been fighting to figure out how to be a single dad, how to be alone.
For nine long months, I’ve been failing.
When Hannah walked through the door, I took my first breath since I’d found myself on my own. She slipped into our lives effortlessly, showing me what I’ve been missing all these years. Because Hannah made me smile when I thought I’d packed the notion of happiness away with my wedding album.
She was only supposed to be the nanny, but she’s so much more.
The day my wife left should have been the worst day of my life, but it wasn’t. It was when Hannah walked away, taking my heart with her.
*This contemporary romance features Charlie from A Thousand Letters*
This story was so freaking good! Charlie is such an amazing character. He’s a man who’s struggling so hard to be a good dad and that’s just so sexy! Although much of the book does focus on his relationship with Hannah, we get to see how much he adores his kids and that makes me love him so hard. Hannah is sweet and brings this family together. She’s genuine, loving, and trusting despite her past experiences and that just makes her more likable.
Staci Hart quite simply stole my heart with this heartwarming romance! She continues to dazzle with her stories of sweet romance with relatable, lovable characters and infused with just the right amount of steam.
Narration by Jennifer Stark and Brian Pallino was fantastic. Both were new-to-me narrators, but left great first impressions. Jennifer Stark does a great job of balancing Hannah’s sweetness and vulnerability and her husky “male” voice was completely swoon worthy. Speaking of which, Brian Pallino had me crushing hard on his voice! He brought out Charlie’s sadness, confusion, and softer side to life effortlessly. I fell in love with these characters, especially Charlie, more on audio thanks to the narration than when I first read the book. I think I might have found new narrators to add to my favorites list.
