Show Me How is a wonderful addition to Molly McAdams’ Thatch series. In it we get to delve into the lives of characters that we know from the previous books in the series – Charlie and Deacon. The road these two have to travel to find their way is an emotional one, filled with missteps, but so, so rewarding.

Charlie has returned to Thatch after college and is focused on one thing and one thing only: getting custody of her three year old son, Keith. She gets a job, she sets up a home for

Show Me How is the final book in the Thatch series. It is listed as #2.5.

On goodreads it shows that this book is only 100 pages. But on amazon it is listed as 243 pages. Since I read it as an e-book I can't tell exactly how many pages are in this book. But it is definitely not 100 pages. So most likely 243 pages is correct.

This book is a New Adult contemporary romance.

I read and loved book two in the series (To The Stars). Show Me How can be read as a standalone. Each book has different narrator

Perfect 3rd book in this amazing series!

Very cute and adorable and frustrating and sexy and moving and just great!!!
We get lots of Knox and Jagger too - especially Jagger, because he's Charlie's brother.
And toddler Keith is too adorable for words. He's a new superhero every day! Too cute.

This was another gorgeous tale from Molly McAdams. I loved it so much that I devoured it in one day. "Show Me How" was a truly beautiful story that made me swoon like crazy and left my heart bursting at the seams.

"I'd never been haunted by a girl the way you haunt me, Charlie Easton."

When it came to love, poor Charlie Easton had suffered an awful experience that had left it almost impossible for her to trust and unwilling to giver her heart away so easily again. Charlie was adamant

Show Me How by Molly McAdams is the last book in the Thatch series, although it can be read as a standalone. This series has crossover characters from each of the books, and it is recommended to read them in order.

What a beautiful, heart wrenching story. McAdams never fails to rip my heart out, but she puts it back together every time. Charlie Easton has come home from college. After suffering the loss of her first love, it’s impossible for her to trust that another won’t inflect that pain all o

This is the final story in the Thatch series and everyone we have read about so far is in this book, which I loved by the way. This is very much Charlie and Deacon's story. Oh and Keith, he completely stole the show, every time he appeared.

Charlie has just moved back to Thatch with her son Keith. They are currently living with Jagger & Grey, until she can get herself settled and in a position to be able to independently support her son. Everyone is happy to see her back and to welcome her h

I absolutely adore Molly McAdams. She knows love. She knows how to rip out your heart and then sew it back together Christina Yang style. She knows how to write a good triangle forcing you to choose a team like you're behind the gates at Monday Night Raw's main event and it's John Cena vs. The Rock. But I digress.....

Show Me How concludes the emotional roller coaster that is the Thatch Series - Letting Go and To The Stars being the first two, which I recommend you read or you will be lost. Witho

***Read Letting Go and To The Stars before reading this book!***
Absolutely loved this story!!! Charlie is my home girl. We actually share a few similarities....single mom, crazy situations. Thankfully, I didn't have to deal with death the way she did. I really identified with her in so many ways.
Show Me How is such a sweet, heartfelt love story. Molly's story telling just gets better and better, and of course she knows how to bring the tears! No, not Chapter 13 type tears.

Charlie has just come home from college. She is still trying to figure out how to trust anyone with her heart as well her son Keith's as well. Then there is Deacon. He is known for getting around with women of Thatch and doesn't know if he will ever be able to shake that but he is willing to try for Charlie though. Will these two be able to get past their issues to make it work. This book was short, sweet and had so many of the things I love in books, such as:

The queen of love triangles is back but this love triangle has a twist.

Charlie has had some bad luck where it comes to the hands she's been given and it doesn't help that her brothers best friend Deacon hates her. Thankfully she has the sweetest son that you can't help but fall in love with him.

Deacon has had life pretty easy but his friends not seeing past his player ways is getting old. Deacon used to adore Charlie but can't respect her choices (Even though he doesn't

Deacon - we've grown to know him as the man whore of Thatch. Charlie - we've had a love/hate/love relationship with her once we found out what she was up to with Ben. Now it's time to shine some more light onto their lives. Onto their hopes, dreams, fears, truths and souls.

This series has held such a special place in my heart. If I had never read Letting Go (Thatch #1) I would've never been introduced to Molly McAdams. I probably would have, but it would've been a while before I found her. And t

I've been waiting for more Charlie crumbs since Letting Go, waiting for more on Graham/Deacon since To The Stars, and this book delivered everything and more.

Deacon... Sometimes you just wanna grab Deacon by the neck and whip him into shape. You would think he would have learned his lesson after judging Harlow so harshly, but no, here he goes again, judging Charlie without knowing her whole story.

If you haven't read Letting Go, take a break now and go read it, cause you need all the background

Where do I even begin? I don't know that my words will do Molly McAdams any justice!!

Molly has a way with tearing you to pieces and then putting you back together word by word. This book was no different than any other. She will have you ugly crying, screaming at her in your head, sighing and swooning within seconds. And she will have you walking away at peace with it all.

Show Me How captured my heart. You think you know Charlie and Deacon from meeting them in Letting Go & To The Stars, but you really don’t. Molly McAdams does not disappoint with this book. My heart was pounding, breathe stolen, and anxiety level spiked at the story of hate, secrets, assumptions and love.

We get to see another side of Deacon in this book. Can this manwhore be reformed? That is one of the parts I loved about this story. I never thought that a line in a book delivered by the fo

I had the incredible privilege of getting an ARC of Show Me How by Molly McAdams.

If there's anyone who knows how to write a male character that I'll fall for, it's Molly McAdams.

If there's anyone who can write a young adult girls point of view that can echo my younger self in love, Molly's the gal to do it.

Her books scream of the young lustful angst that many of us can identify with and that is ingrained into our hearts.

Show Me How is no different. Getting to read Charlie and Deacon's story is b

You had Jagger and Grey's story which was amazing then comes along Knox and Harlow which was my favorite and now you have Charlie's story which is competing for favorite in my heart.

I don't want to give away too much so I'm just going to leave this here.

Can't beleive the Thatch Series is over, Show Me How was the perfect addition to this emotional collection (you will need tissues) the books don't necessarily need to be read in order as all three have different characters but they do make appearances in others. I loved the ending..the whole series was tied up lovely.

This is a beautiful book about two people who don`t seem to fit together at the surface.

Charlie: Introvert, shy, single and a romantic with an broken heart.
Deacon: Extrovert and a womanizer with a dislike of children.

By chance, these two get the possibility of an anonymous exchange of their inner thoughts.
This is - in contrast to their real life - completely value-free and risk-free. - It creates an emotional bond; which was not planned.
