Harper McReynolds is a capable lady, but she's been through a lot in an abusive marriage. Now she's putting the pieces together with two young daughters. Surely she deserves some love and support from a dependable guy. But is she really just looking for a friend?
Enter the hot rock star recovering from substance abuse issues. Maybe this sexy, seemingly nice guy with everything else going for him can be Harper's new best friend.

Loved the story, but the grammar freak in me had trouble with the many typos in the manuscript.

Harper is a divorced mother of two girls, Josie, and Gracie. She has been dating Randall for awhile and believes he could offer the stability she and her girls need. The problem is that every time she encounters Brody, the ex-rock star, they have a pattern of ending up passionately kissing. This is a great love story with wonderful characters, but also delves into the serious topics of abuse and divorce. Josie has been kept from her father for 5 years and she believes he has changed. She learns ...more

I loved this book. The characters are so relatable, dealing with real life issues of love and loss and insecurity. The protagonist has a history of abuse that is further relevant because of her two children, one a challenging but normal teen learning to deal with her history and a young precocious and tender sister. And then Brody comes into the picture. He is sassy and sexy and makes Harper swoon. But she's looking for stability. Will he fit the bill? The repartee between the two, complicated b ...more

Recommends it for: romance readers, romcom lovers
Shelves: 2019, romance
Another fun romcom by Betsy Dudak! The heroine is a funny, confident, and strong single mother of 2. The hero is a younger, sexy, ex-rocker who meets her wit. The characters are fully formed and feel so real. While this is a rom com, the characters have dark and interesting pasts, that clearly form who they are today and play out in their relationship. Betsy always has great dialog and a cast of characters - this book is no exception. Nonnie is a delight and the Heroines two kids are so real - a ...more

Steamy yet tasteful romance novel with a plot that takes twists and turns as the characters navigate their complex lives. You can feel the intense passion of the main characters. I was captivated and even shed a happy tear at the end.
