Summary

Firefighter Levi Bailey is used to being alone. Not that he’s lonely. How could he be, with a band of unruly brothers and their wives and growing families? Maybe he’s the odd man out. The one brother who isn’t destined to be with his soul mate. Besides, he has her.

She’s his Juliet, the only woman in the world he can’t ever have. To an outsider, it probably seems crazy. But the Tilikum town feud is no joke—especially now—and Annika Haven is strictly forbidden.

Annika Haven never expected to be back in her hometown, let alone as a single mom with two jobs. Add in a pack of overprotective brothers, a brewing family crisis, and a gossipy, feuding town on the brink of chaos, and life gets complicated. But at least she has him.

He’s her Romeo, a son of the enemy. He makes her smile on her worst days. Yet despite his brooding sex appeal, the one thing she cannot do is fall for Levi Bailey. They’re just friends, and that’s the way it has to stay.

But after months of secret texts and stolen glances, one soul-stealing kiss changes everything. And Levi Bailey is about to do the impossible—defy the feud.

Author’s Note: This audiobook features an intense hero who relentlessly pursues what he wants and a single mom with a tender heart. Contains small-town shenanigans, a 100-year-old mystery, a riot of crazy brothers hot enough to melt your device, and the biggest, heart-bursting happily ever after you’ve been waiting for.

Absolutely amazing definitely recommend it

Wow this story blew me away. I've been waiting for the last Bailey brothers Levi story and I was hooked.
Levi has been texting his Juliet for a while but he feels it not enough his family will not be pleased if they find out just who she is. Annika is a haven and with all her protective brothers dating isn't easy and what we want isn't always easy especially as a single parent.
I loved the narrators, the plot, the character just everything.
A definite recommend listen to.

My Favorite of the Series!

This was the perfect ending to the Bailey Brothers series. I loved how Claire Kingsley pulled everything together, giving us a heartfelt and emotional story, filled with lots of laughs and some truly scorching times. That scene in the Timberbeast is not one I’m going to forget! *fans self*

Rewriting the Stars had the perfect amount of childhood-ish friends to lovers and second chance vibes to balance the forbidden/star crossed lovers trope. What I appreciated most was that the angst and final conflict in the novel wasn’t between Levi and Annika. They are all in and ready to take on the world to be together. This is definitely my favorite book of the series.

The narration by Desiree Ketchum and Sebastian York was wonderful and they paired well together. Desiree Ketchum’s performance was especially amazing. I did feel that Sebastian York sounded a smidge too mature for Levi, but it didn’t take away from my enjoyment of the audiobook. Aaron Shedlock’s appearance was such a treat and that bonus epilogue left me smiling ear to ear.

This series has been such an amazing ride and I’m excited that the Haven’s are getting their own series so that we don’t have to leave this world just yet.

Overall 5 stars
Performance 5 stars
Story 4.5 stars

Note: It’s best to read this series in order since there is a mystery subplot that spans the entire series and characters from all the previous books appear.

Perfection

The final Bailey to get his HEA couldn't have been more perfect!!! I loved how these two defied the odds and let fate lead the way. The narrators brought these characters to life so much so that I never wanted the book to end

Perfect End of Series!

The Bailey Bothers series has been a delight, and I recommend you read them in order. In the final book, all the pieces of the puzzles Kingsley crafted throughout the other stories are brought together in a way that made my heart happy! The bonus epilogue was a real treat!

Narration was excellent!

Happy-ever-after

This book is the perfect ending to the Bailey Brothers series and a wonderful introduction to the Haven family. Levi and Annika were the perfect couple to give closure to the story of the Baileys, the origins of the town feud, and the resolution of the series' over-arcing mystery. No spoilers here - if you wanna know, read the book!

I loved how Levi loved Annika (and her son) and was willing to figuratively set the world on fire to make her his. I mean, he wouldn't literally set it on fire because he's a fireman! The storyline was poignant, romantic, mysterious, and hot - a modern-day retelling of Romeo and Juliet without the deaths. Feuding families, forbidden love, risking everything to be together... it's all here...and then some.

It was wonderful to revisit characters from previous books in this series and also the series that started it all - the Miles Family series. Next up - the Haven Family!

Kudos to Claire Kingsley for pouring her heart and soul into this book while dealing with her very own personal loss. So grateful that she is continuing to share her talent with us - the world needs more love stories and happily ever afters.

The performances by both Sebastian York and Desiree Ketchum were stellar and really brought the story to life. Sebastian added subtle nuances to differentiate between twins Logan and Levi. Desiree made the Haven brothers likeable with her emotional performance as Annika demonstrating the love between her and her big brothers.

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

I really don’t know how to sum this book review up properly. Fantastic, amazing, wonderful, emotional, sweet, funny, se$y, swoony, epic.

Claire hit it out of the park. “Chefs kiss”’perfection. Each Bailey Brother book got better and better which is crazy beucase they are all good! The mystery is solved, love wins, and lots of Easter eggs for the Haven series!!

Your words Claire they mean so much to all of us as do you! Thank you!

Levi and Annika FINALLY

This sixth and last book in the Bailey Series is the best yet. It’s jam packed with adventure, suspense and star-crossed lovers.

This audio version of the book does every one of Levi Bailey naughty whispers justice. The writing it done just right so the text conversations don’t get confusing.

I loved every bit of the writing, the story, and the narrating.

5 🌟

Gaaahhh!! THIS BOOK! I'm finding it hard to put into words just how good not only this book is, but the entire Bailey Brothers series. As a longtime fan of Claire, I'm no stranger to just how amazing every book she writes is, but this series has been her best yet... it's just everything! Levi and Annika's story is the final forbidden-love chapter to this 6 books series about a family of five crazy, swoon-worthy brothers which is best read in order, as there is a mystery element that continues throughout the series. Forbidden/secret lovers between grumpy hot mountain-man firefighter and the only sister in the family of his enemies, plus the sweetest little boy and FINALLY getting all the answers you've been waiting for. Plus these narrators were perfect to voice Levi and Annika! Need I say more?!
