Taryn is a firecracker and Jeff is the perfect man to light her up. I thought Jeff was romantic and pure fun. Olivia is adorable and you can totally relate to dynamics this new family is trying to navigate through. I think the bright spot in these stories is that you may know someone who reminds you of some of the characters. Another great read....more

Had a few unexpected twists. I liked this story a bunch. Micky is a hoot, she is blunt and I loved the interaction with Nick. Nick is a man with a dream but you get that he realizes it is not without lacking something in return, I thought the development of his character was fantastic. Look forward to the next story, looks to be equally as good....more

Mollie fills him in on her life since they last talked and the dinner ends with Jackson asking Mollie to be his roommate.

I thought this was really well written. I liked Mollie, she is quirky and has been under the thumb of her sisters calculating ways, she has no clue how damaged their relationship really is. Jackson is struggling trying to find himself again and the road is not easy for him. Great chemistry between these two, wonderful read....more
