I'm gonna say this book was just okay. If I purchase a electronic book or a book online (for home delivery), I try to read the reviews first. With this book, it had more 4 and 5 stars so one may consider this to be a good read. Well I got bad news, it was just okay. I think the reviewers must be the author's friends (JK)

I didn't feel the characters. It felt like a write by colors assignment (draw the lines game). Even though it was short, I felt like the author ran out of thing to say so sheadde
I love this book. The romance was subtle and sweet. Ryan and his son are just so cute. Especially his 4 year old son. The things kids know! Kelly was a sweetheart but she didn't let anyone run over her, which i liked..A strong women. The romance was great. It had all the components that i want in a romance book. The dad was funny. With his ways. and i loved the glimpse of the brother. I can't wait to read his book. Jeremy the hot tempered quiet brother.

This book was ok, I've read better by this author. it seemed to drag in parts of the storyline.
I have read other books by this author that were so much better than this one.
