This was one of those quick fun and enjoyable reads.
Most of you know by now I’m not a fan of insta-love, but when in works it works and in some quick fun books I don’t mind it too much anyway.
I enjoyed the story, for the most part. There were a few minor things that bothered me but overall it was a good book that was funny, cute, and very steamy. While with a somewhat predicable storyline I still enjoyed it.
The characters… I enjoyed Maracus a little more than Grace. He just seemed to know...more

He was taking a break from easy pussy. It had been fun, but he was over it. Maybe he was feeling old, but he wanted something more… something with substance.
“Fighting doesn't solve anything,” Grace automatically answered, giving her best mom voice.
Who in their right mind not only left a woman who looked like her, but their kid?
