This is a book about acceptance of yourself. It’s also about loss and growing as a person but most of all about Love.

Trevor is a newly sober man who has come home to care for his baby nephew who he has sole custody of since his brother and sister in law’s sudden passing.

This book is raw and real and bittersweet. Trevor is trying so hard for baby Greyson, he’s a little clueless but he’s learning while trying to fix the relationship with his parents, at least his dad is supportive of him and so is

This book is a MUST READ! Amazing plot twists, drama, and romance to keep you going back for more. Trevor and Veronica are characters that you love to love! Add a baby to the mix and the book just gets better. I can see myself re-reading this book in the near future. Could not recommend this book more!

A must read by this author. It's her book debut, and she's pulled off this amazing story hands down. The story is fantastic, but be prepared to have your emotions pulled all over the place. Trevor's struggles will pull at your heartstrings. However, you'll be rooting for him to get his HEA with a his beautiful neighbor, Ronnie. They're perfect for each other. Little Greyson will just bring a smile to your face throughout the story. I'm looking forward to seeing more from this talented young lady ...more
This book just seemed to drag on and on. I did finish it but it was with a lot of skimming. I almost DNF'd it.

The writing seemed a little stilted. It's nothing I can pinpoint but this book wasn't for me.

There was some drama over an ex-boyfriend that I think could of been omitted.

For a debut author this book is amazing it gets right in from the start with your emotions, you feel for Trevor and wonder why his mother despises him so much, you want to be Ronnie and comfort Trevor. There is not a bad thing I can say about this book except if you don’t buy it you will regret it, go out right now and buy it

Lizzie has been able to get you to feel for every character even the evil villain mother Evelyn, you can understand why she is the way she is towar

In her debut novel, Lizzie Lee deftly weaves a gripping tale of loss, love, and forgiveness. When Trevor Warren is entrusted with the care of his infant nephew after the sudden death of his brother, his world is turned upside down. With the help of his attractive neighbor, Veronica, Trevor not only faces the new challenges of fatherhood but also, a past that won't seem to go away.
The Blessing was a fresh and entertaining read. It had me hooked from page one and kept me captivated until the very

Lizzie Lee has done an amazing job with her debut novel, The Blessing. The hero, Trevor, is a young man with a lot of baggage, self-loathing, and obstacles to overcome. What he has on his side is sheer determination to do the right thing by the nephew he returns home to care for when his beloved brother is killed. Greyson is one adorable baby, and I found myself falling hard for the little guy and his devoted father. He might not think too highly of himself, and he might be a bit rough around th ...more

Trevor Warren's life has been turned upside down with the death of his brother Dean and his wife and he is left to be the guardian of Greyson. Trevor is recently sober and still struggles with making the right choices and how to be a good father to Greyson.

Luckily Trevor meets Veronica "Ronnie" Clark who is there for Trevor and Greyson when they need her to be. She is a great character who obviously cares for the two a lot.

Trevor has ghosts he needs to overcome and his dad was wonderful but his

Otay y'all this book is great but its really drawn in places for me. At some points it seemed to go on forever. Trevor is a amazing guy but he doesn't know it yet and it takes most of the book for him to get it. But the way he takes Greyson on when tragedy strikes proves how strong he is. He has a few slip ups through the book but he truly does grow. Ronnie is his perfect counterpart and made for him. The way she takes on Grey the same way he does is amazing and its great to read. Seeing how

This book is written decently but it is clearly Twilight fanfiction, so much so that I can pick out the Twilight character that each character in this book is modeled after. I don’t oppose stories that were originally fanfic being published, but if you’re going to do so I think the author should do a bit of work to make sure it’s less obvious to the readers. The book was also much longer than it needed to be and I saw every plot twist from a mile away. It also felt like the author was attempting ...more

An absolutely amazing, beautifully written, incredibly gripping tale. This is a story of love, loss, redemption and, above all, family. I laughed, I cried, I screamed, I rejoiced.

Trevor is insanely flawed which just serves to make him more likeable as a main character. His doubt and self-hatred is something that everyone can relate to at some point (and if you disagree with me you're lying to yourself). His struggles to be a better man both for baby Greyson and for Ronnie are the heart and soul

An emotionally charged story that had me cheering for Trevor every step of the way. His guardianship of Grey and meeting Ronnie have been the catalysts but he chose every positive step he took to becoming the man his brother knew he could be.

This is my first book by Lizzie and can I just say that Trevor, Ronnie and Grey are the best? I liked the realness of Trevor and Ronnie's relationship. Yes, he was physically attracted to her, but he had the wherewithal to realize that he wasn't ready for a relationship right away. They built that friendship, that relationship between the two as Trevor adjusted to being an adoptive parent/legal guardian to Greyson. The growing heat (which believe me, there was a lot) happened naturally.

And that

This is a book about loss, love, and finding yourself.

I laughed I teared up and I was truly engaged in this book. It pulls you in and you really do feel like you're with the charecters. This book is amazing and I can't wait for the next book to come out.
