🎧Not What I Expected from Jewel E. Ann on Audio!🎧

USA Today and Wall Street Journal best-selling author Jewel E. Ann redefines modern romance with this unforgettable enemies-to-lovers story.

Are humans meant to mate for life?

After four kids and an unfortunate but fateful end to her 22-year marriage, Elsie Smith meets the new guy in town.

Kael Hendricks is…a little younger, a lot sexy, and too confident for his own good. He also doesn’t believe in marriage and all that goes with it.

And…he’s just opened a new business that threatens the livelihood of Elsie’s family’s store – just in time for the holidays.

The problem?

There’s an undeniable attraction that leads to out of control situations, a loss of inhibitions, and a lot of small-town gossip.

As Elsie tries to redefine herself and convince her family she isn’t having a midlife crisis, she’s forced to answer the biggest question of all….

Can she love an enemy who will never surrender?


Elsie has been focused on being the perfect wife, the perfect mother and the perfect home and now two decades later she finds herself divorced and trying to find the woman she lost along the way. She is determined to focus on the success of her family store and isn’t about to distracted by Kael despite how he makes her feel.

Kael has recently moved to town and not only is he more than a decade younger than Elise, he isn’t looking for love or a relationship and he is her competitor. Too bad that all the things that are working against them don’t overrule the one fact that is irrefutable and that is that the brain has very little to do with the heart.

This is a story about finding out who you are and what you want in life whatever that may be. The chemistry between them is intense, the interactions between them are humorous and the way that Kael supports Elsie on her journey is enough to make you swoon. I enjoyed the narrator as she made it easy to relate to what Elsie was experiencing.
