My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I’m in a happy place right now. This book is so perfect! It is a deeper novel than I was expecting. I was expecting a hot and sexy love story. Did I get that? Absolutely! But I also got a much deeper story about the raw reality of life and love. Vi Keeland knows how to write a story that resonates with all of us. It a story that isn’t pure fantasy, but one that could be anybody’s story. It deals with the hardships of parenting and real relationship problems. I don’t want to mislead you because while there are some great themes, Vi Keeland also mixes in a lot of witty humor and some smoking hot scenes. Just my style!
I knew I liked Emerie the moment I found out she eats too much and unbuttons her pants. Lol…yes..I do that too. I found kinship right there. She’s a wonderful main character. There’s nothing to not like; she’s just one of the girls. Emerie is an idealist and while I am more like Drew, a realist, I found her advice and positivity refreshing to read. It’s nice to be reminded to look on the bright side and have a little hope.
Then there is Drew. Drew is awesome! He and his big ego crack me up.
“Damn straight. I’m like a superhero. The prolactinator.”
The best part about Drew is watching his touch exterior melt away when it comes to Emerie and his son. There’s nothing I love more to read about than a tough guy showing his heart. He has a lot of issues with trust and I can see why. The family baggage he comes with is a lot to deal with, but I have so much respect for him when I see how much he loves his son. It is very heartwarming. It is wonderful to see Emerie and Drew learn to work as a team to become a family.
“People don’t leave when they love someone. They stick around forever.”
So this book is a must read! It has a wonderful love story that touches on the hardships of relationships and parenting. It is a beautiful story that will uplift you and make you feel like there is nothing too big to overcome when you have the right people by your side.
