Do you remember the first book you read that made you fall in love with reading? Do you remember the feeling you had after you finished that last page?

Well this book has reminded me why I love reading. The characters were so easy to fall in love with and their story was one that made me wish I could live it myself.

I was drawn to this book for two reasons. One, the cover. I know that sounds goofy but let's face it, covers have a HUGE impact on what we choose to read. While we all try to follow

This was a good book. Andy Martin is a likable character, and Harper is adorable. When Matt find Andy and her daughter crying in the hallway of her apartment building, he decides to do what he can to help her out, and falls in love with her and her daughter along the way.

I had high hopes for this one, which is probably why I was so disappointed and hit a DNF at about 55%. Life is too short to read books that aren't enjoyable.

The set up was good - young, single mom struggling to survive with her 3 month old daughter, meets young handsome cowboy in apartment hallway. I thought this would be sweet and something out of my normal reading habits. And it was. But the hook up between our H and h happened too quickly; I mean, you just meet a dude in the hallway, and alr

This was an excellent book. The main characters are Matt and Andy. They first meet when Andy is in the hallway crying because her baby, Harper, is crying. Matt sweeps her off of her feet. They immediately have an attraction. There is a problem. That problem is that Matt has a psycho ex. She will stop at nothing to keep them apart. What she does is draw them closer. There are a lot of ups and downs during this book. Secret keeping is the root of it all. There are some things that are discussed in ...more

This was a great book to read, if you want a romance story this is the one for you.
If you like a hot cowboy and the promise of steamy sex scenes go and buy this book now.
I immediately fell in love with Matt Johnson. His and Andy’s connection had you routing for them to be together and stay together, but that’s not how life works. The twists and turns in it are great. They keep you on the edge of your seat and I found myself reading later and later into the night.

Being a single mom is very tough, but it is even tougher when your own family & friends abandon you! If things can go wrong, they usually do with more than a few things. For Andy, no sleep and the babysitter's car broke down and she is going to be late to work, again, it is a disaster waiting to happen. Then she makes it to the hall, collapses with a screaming baby and she gives in to her sad, lonely feelings and cries. Out of the apartment across the hall comes an angel, Matt, who helps her ...more

Now don't laugh but I thought when I got this it was an MC story. The title seemed like a great name for a MC club. Didn't read the synopsis before. Plus I had it sitting on my shelf just waiting for me to read. Once I started reading I quickly realized it was not an MC story. Andy is a single mom to a three month old daughter. The one night she gave her virginity she got pregnant and her family did not accept her choice in keeping the baby. Which meant she struggled to support herself and her d ...more

Yeah, I fell for Matt, his voice, his body, his protectiveness and the way he immediately wanted to help Andy and her baby. They each had their own issues going on, and each one of them saved each other. This book is STEAMY. The details in the love scenes were just about perfect for me. It wasn't too over the top at all. They couldn't keep their hands off of each other, and that is hot. I liked how Andy's secrets were revealed a little at a time. It was a nice twist about Lance, but I won't post ...more

Andy is the single mother of a beautiful 3 month old daughter. Literally on her own, she meets Matt in the most unexpected place - the hallway of her apartment building! Events make it that Matt feels she's ...more

The story line I really really liked and it had a bunch of potential, but sadly I had to stop, I just couldn't go anymore. And it's very long, so I could not do it for like 400 pages. I got to 23% and had to stop, I was just too annoyed. 1- What kind of mother leaves their kid with a complete stranger they meet in the hall or his brother or a strange woman that works for Matt?... I understand she is tired, exhausted, on her own , young, etc... but come on... I would NEVER leave my daughter alone ...more

Andy is a single mother who is completely overwhelmed and at the end of her tether. Her beautiful baby, Harper, is her pride and joy. But alone, she can’t seem to ever catch up. At her lowest point, along comes Matt. He is kind, compassionate, understanding and sexy to boot.

Matt is like an angel is disguise. He is enchanted by Harper and in lust with Andy. And the attraction is mutual. There is a running undercurrent throughout the novel of attraction and lust which makes it all the more excitin

This was an intense love affair from beginning to end. Matt walks in to Andy's life right when she needed him the most. He was so sweet and took right to his place as lover, protector, and angel. Andy was so strong yet had reached her breaking point. I have a few single mom friends and know that it can be so much harder being a mom when you are alone. Cue crazy ex-girlfriends and more chaos and then add a wonderfully supportive man. Though these two go through so much in such a short time it doe ...more

What a utterly sweet and emotional book. I was excited to begin reading it...even though it took me awhile to get to it..Sorry about that!! The characters are so real and you feel compassion for Andy and what she is going though being a single mom. When she meets Matt I knew her whole life was about to change..whether it was for good or worse. Everything that they go through together just shows how much work the author put into this book. The story is just full of life and things that could happ ...more

I will give this book three stars. I don't know why but I can't get into cowboy books. The book is good with an emotional story line about a girl aka woman ,a mom of three year child all alone and how a man changes her mind and makes her strong enough to face the world. The pace ,characters are good. With little suspense in between the book is interesting. But again the book was predictable with a common plot. Their attraction was instant which I am not usually a big fan of. If you like sweet co ...more

Story was great just have a few complaints.

The story was Amazing, I fell in love with the characters. The only issue I had was why Andy thought her secret was so devastating that it would make Matt walk out on her, I thought of the worst and when she told him, I felt like "seriously that's it"?! I am also disappointed that we didn't really get to see a happy ending with Lance. Is he going to be a part of Harper's life? At times I felt like the writer could just go on with it instead of dragging
