When I became a single father at seventeen, I knew my path wasn't going to be easy. Hell, sometimes it sucked. Year after year, I tirelessly busted my ass until my business was booming. Until my daughter was happy. Until life? It was good. Settled.

But sometimes being settled is overrated. Boring. Especially when a little excitement walks throu

I was given this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Let me start off by saying that, I frickin loved this book! Such a great story about finding the love you're always meant to have. I don't want to give anything away but this is truly a great read.

Hudson & Rae are 100% real! The way they talk and act are so real. Nothing seems made up or forced and I believed in their connection from page one. Joey has got to be one of my fave child characters in awhile. So cute.

Wanna read a sweet story filled with real people? Wanna experience all the feels of a romance that's slow and steady, and not insta love throw them on the bed right now? Well then, this is the story for you. :)

Rae is trying to find her place in this world. She's not real sure what she's going to do, but she thinks she has to leave to do it. She is a straightforward, speak her mind kinda girl. She says it like it is. No sugar coating whatsoever. And when she stumbles upon Hudson, leaving town doe
Extremely Slow

Very slow, with not much happening. The leads were your ordinary people, that live ordinary lives. 80% of the story was their courtship that amounted to them really liking each other, but having plenty of "she likes me, he likes me not"...heavy on the she/he likes me. Secondary characters were all good as well, and just as ordinary. If I had one word to describe it, that would be boring. Anything that could give it some added umph was quickly taken care of or dismissed..even the tw

I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, pain, and heartbreak.

This is Rae and Hudson’s story. Hudson has not had a easy life. Single dad to a girl at 17 and he has worked hard to provide and care for her. Now s the years have gone by he feels he did good. But they had struggles. When he meets Rae he is smitten. She is sassy and funny. He knows she is not for him but that does not stop him for looking. Rae can’t wait to get out of this small town. She wants out in the wors

DNF- Ok, I deserve a reward for getting to 30%. OMG I fill like I've been held down and had love and feelings poured down my throat. SERIOUSLY-GAG!!!! Way too much, way too soon. Sure a few thoughts of how perfect it could be or how he/she is but not like this. OVERBOARD. And I'm trying to be nice here. A teaspoon full of perfect is doable. Don't drown me.

When I read the first chapter I thought this was going to be a great book. The banter between Hudson and Rae were the best, easy conversatio

I received an advanced ecopy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review!

This one unfortunately didn't quite work to my tastes. It had all the potential, but something about the writing style just didn't work for me. It felt really slow to start, taking me almost 40% before I finally got hooked. The beginning just felt like a lot of detail in each character's minds, and to me felt a bit more "telling" instead of "showing". And there was some repetitiveness that probably didn't

My first ever Teagan Hunter book and I was not disappointed in the least! It was everything I had heard it to be. Cute, funny and very sweet. I loved Hudson and his love for his daughter Joey. She was a treat! I adored watching them together.

Rae was honestly hilarious. I just loved her quirkiness and attitude. She was pretty great and I loved watching her and Hudson fall in love. The sparks were there from the start and the connection grew with every glance, every exchange.

I freakin' LOVE this book!!! There's no doubt about that.
I had the most amazing opportunity to read this book while it was being written and I completely fell completely in love with Hudson and Rae’s story. I was dying for more each time it ended. I found out how others felt when they’ve had friends or family writing their debut self-published novel and how they always wanted more each time they reached the end of what was written.

Wow. Where do I begin. I LOVED this story. To read about love and tomorrows makes you feel so part of the book. For being the authors first book, I would never have known by reading this but I knew before hand so - watch out because I believe this author is good.

ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

I think it is always delicate to review an ARC or a gifted copy from authors. And when the author is your friend I find it even more chalenging.
But with this book? No.Problem.At.All!!!

Everything happens for a reason.

This book is Teagan Hunter's debut novel and if I hadn't known I wouldn't have thought it was. It is very well written and sincere.
It's positive, fun, it makes you smile most of the ride. It's real, honest and so heart

The blurb caught my interest and the fact that this author will be at Book Bonanza and I want to read as many books as possible before I go.

But...this book was a little slow for me. At times it got caught up in the details and those details weren't always necessary. I did enjoy the characters. Joey is super cute and such a sweet little girl. Hudson is a wonderful dad that really put his daughter first which is very admirable! Rae was a little all over the place crazy (in a good way).

Here's to Tomorrow is a great read. Rae is super funny. She says whatever is on her mind and she had me laughing at some points. She recently graduated from college and is back home. She doesn't plan on sticking around very long. She doesn't have the best memories of her mom so kids are not something she wants. Hudson is a single Dad. He's struggled and worked hard for what he has. Rae bursts into his life and there is a connection. Neither one is looking for love. It's not all fun there are som ...more

Rae and Hudson were my introduction to a series I never saw coming and an author I never thought to explore. Both left me pleasantly surprised. Here's to Tomorrow takes a bit of a hard road to love, but in the most adorably simple way. For Rae and Hudson, their path consists of learning from past mistakes and taking a chance on future happiness. There's a sweetness to the angst. Great beginning to what looks to be an unforgettable series.

Epic Romance!

I absolutely loved this read from Teagan Hunter. I loved her writing style in her Testing series, so was excited to check this series out and see what it was like. I instantly fell in love with Rae and Hudson. Their sparks flew from the start, and I loved their banter. They were truly made for each other! And, let’s not forget sweet Joey Bug. Bless her, my mamma mode came out, and I instantly fell in love with her. I loved how Hudson was with her. Hats off and 4 stars to Hunter for

Not a fan.

Does Rae ever get a job? Does she even care about a career any longer? Does she forgive *cough cough* people? Does Joey’s mom ever come back? What happens?!

I was just left with too many loose threads.

There was also waaay too much use of the word “dude.”

I couldn’t connect with any of the characters.

Sadly, this one wasn’t for me.

“Shouldn’t you at least buy me dinner before you screw me?”

When a book starts with a sassy comment like this I just know that this is my kind of heroine.

Meet Rae Kamden, she has no idea what she wants to do. She just knows that she needs to move to the city of Boston. I mean she wants the hustle and bustle of the big town, so she does what she thinks is going to get her there. She’s a waitress, which is weird since she graduated with a degree in marketing, but I guess t

Rae and Hudson's story is truly beautiful. And fun if I might add. Rae is a bit weird but that's what makes her special and honestly, freaking hilarious!

See what I mean? First line of the book and I was laughing to death. She is amazing and one of my favorite female characters of all time.

Here's To Tomorrow is your typical New Adult book, except that both main characters are out of college already. I like reading books with slightly older protagonists since I am not in my early twenties anymore myself. ;)
The storyline of this novel was simple and easy. Not the "bad-simple-and-easy", it was the "good-simple-and-easy", if that does make any sense at all. Of course Hudson and Rae's relationship was not sunshine and rainbows all the ti

Fantastic debut novel!!! I loved this book so much and can't wait for more. These characters are so relatable. You can see yourself hanging with these people. It's very refreshing to read "real" people. The banter between Rae & Hudson is perfection. I loved them soooo much. Actually, the banter between everyone was perfect. I need an older sister like Haley in my life, EVERYONE needs a Joey in their life, and best friends like Maura, Perry and Gaige. Tucker well he's more than BFF material.... ; ...more
Rae's car breaks down and she takes it to Hudson's shop. Instalove. Except Hudson has a 7 yr old daughter Rae has ongoing nightmares which aren't thoroughly addressed AT ALL and feels lost... with no explanation or information, it's hard to connect with her character.

Character development here was shallow; there's issues surrounding mental illness which is given such short shrift... And the end... I was mad for her. There are some really significant issues here that are just not addressed. Ugh.

I absolutely loved this book! The characters totally made the book for me. They were all so real, it was almost like I was reading about my own friends. I loved Rae and her lack of filter, and the dialogue between Rae and Hudson was so funny. Tucker, Gaige, Tanner, Perry, Maura, Haley and Joey enhance the story and add to the crazy cast of characters. I can hardly wait for Teagan's next book to see what happens next!

Hudson and Rae are two characters you instantly love.
Rae's past threatens her future...and she doesn't even know it yet.
Hudson's past has defined his future, and there isn't much room in his life for anyone else.
These characters are funny, snarky, sweet and angsty. There are twists in the story that you never see coming. It was tough to put this book down.

Received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I really loved this book! It was sweet, full of tons of laughs and sarcasm. I loved that it was a slow romance and that Rae and Hudson didn't just jump in full steam ahead. This book has one of my favorite opening lines ever.
