If you're an audiobook fan, I highly recommend doing the series this way - it was an incredible experience going through one of my all-time favorite series this way.

My Original Review of Book 8

What a super fun,

I received this the audio edition of this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

This is the 8th book in the Mile High Romance Series, while I read the first 3 books in this series, I didnt have any problem jumping into this one. The referencing made at the start of the story gave me the impression one of the MCs was in a previous book, but the story stands alone easily.

I love when kids are involved, but I would have liked it to be a bit longer and to see a bit more character

Shelves: sex-hot-smexing
This read a whole lot like one of the cheesy Siren romances but the sex was so stinking hot, all is forgiven. We had a fireman who inherited a baby boy and little girl, the social worker in charge of his case and the brother of the woman who died. Yeah, sounds like the perfect makings of a smokin' hot menage, right? Okaaay then. Anyways, the story was cute but I'll forget about it by tomorrow....except the sex and especially the bonus chapter. Hello very flexible man!!
This is the fifth book in this series that I have read and I was very happy to see it offered through the DBML program.

Ms Grace is one of my favorite authors but I've fallen behind on reading this series. I'm assuming that Chad, Britney and Harper were in prior books but with my terrible memory I don't recall them. However, there was just enough information given that I didn't feel lost.

While I enjoyed this story, I sadly must say it's not my favorite. I wish there had been a little more not

1 1/2 stars

It was well written but that was the only saving grace for this book. The rest was simply bad. It was unoriginal, corny, completely unrealistic, and I keep asking myself in what universe authors think that gay men actually speak to each other the way these authors write their dialogue

I just didn't like this one that much.
The whole guardianship with the kids was easily solved but it left me with so much questions as in why did Britney leave home and didn't contact her brother (she was homeless)and why did she wanted to leave the kids with Chad instead of AJ??
What happend to the grandparents after they went to the hearing?
I really liked Chad but AJ and Sawyer not so much
also is it normal for grown ass men to spring boners so easily? Cuz I just found that weird in this
The following review is for the audio book When the Bough Breaks the eighth book in the Mile High Romance series. I received this audio book through the Goodreads Dont Buy My Love program for an honest and unbiased opinion. This is an M/M/M story. The first character is Chad; Brittanys friend who she wishes will adopt her son and daughter. The other two men involved are AJ, Brittanys brother, and Sawyer the social worker. This book is told in third person from all three mens pov.

I received this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review via DBML program.

I honestly think everything felt rushed in a 200+ page book. It made no sense why these three strangers glob on to each other than superficial attraction but nothing click for me to make me feel that what they weren't just a temporary feeling. Aria Grace is one of my guilty pleasure author. I honestly can read most of their catalog and enjoy myself. While I did enjoyed reading this book, I know it

"A Great Story About Family"
What made the experience of listening to When the Bough Breaks the most enjoyable?
I loved how the characters each came to be their own person and find their own joys...and with each other at that.

What does Tim Todd bring to the story that you wouldnt experience if you just read the book?
It was great to hear his different "voices" as the three guys. I would not have had the same experience just reading it as I did

🎧 narrated by Tim Todd.  💖 Loved this story and narration for another great Aria Grace book. The narrator does a fantastic job with all the voices, I especially loved AJ's accented speaking. This book has some scenes are hilariously funny. Hot smoking sexy scenes for the three just adds to the story.
Britney dies after giving birth by herself and leaves her children to Chad (firefighter) in a video to him. Harper 3 yrs and new born baby, Austin are in good hands but it gets rocky.

Nicki - The Overflowing Bookcase
Chad was first introduced to the readers in a previous book and I am so glad he got his own story. When Brittany dies shortly after giving birth, she leaves the children to Chad. As he tries to become their permanent guardian he meets up and falls for not only the childrens uncle AJ but the social worker Sawyer who is in charge of the case. What starts out as friends ends up as lovers in this heartwarming story. Everyone loves strong men with babies and the love and compassion that the three men ...more

When the Bough Breaks, book eight in the Mile High Romance series by Aria Grace. This is a m/m/m storyline. Aria writes wonderful characters. Gage has a lot of friends to help him when he needs them, but his best help comes from the two people you would least expect. Fantastic storyline!

Holy H**l that was Hot!

Words escape me after reading this story. What I thought would be filled with complete sadness, turned into love and some of the hottest scenes I've ever read.

This is a fantastic story of a non-traditional love born in the wake of sadness.

This is the conclusion of the story that was started in the last book, when thunder rolls. Orphaned babies bring an unlikely alliance forward to save them. My favorite of this series so far!

A fireman, an uncle, a social worker and two babies. Not what you imagine when you think of a family but this author not only makes it work she makes you want to cheer along with them.
