Stith gives a fine performance in the first-person role of Liberty Jones, a Texas girl from the wrong side of the tracks who struggles to make a life for herself and her younger sister after the death of their mother, and struggles even more with her powerful attraction to a man she can't have. Stith's voice conveys earnestness, vulnerability, self-doubt and inner strength, making Liberty an immensely likable heroine who immediately garners the listener's sympathies. She also does an excellent job as the other characters, particularly the men in Liberty's life, who are angry, passionate and struggling with their own demons. This entertaining chick lit romance works perfectly on audio and would be a natural for beach listening.

Money is tight while Liberty Jones is growing up in Welcome, Texas, but somehow she and her mother Diana manage. Having good friends like Miss Marva, Lucy Reyes, and especially Hardy Cates, on whom Liberty has a crush, helps. Then tragedy strikes and Liberty must take care of her younger sister and find a way to support them. Hard work and determination get Liberty through cosmetology school, then, while working in a Houston salon, she meets wealthy older businessman Churchill Travis, who offers her a job as his personal assistant. At first Liberty is reluctant to accept, especially since Churchill's son, Gage, seems to think she's a gold digger. Then, just as Liberty is settling into her new life and her initially frosty relationship with Gage is heating up and turning romantic, Hardy Cates, her first unrequited love, reappears.
