Mike Beacon didn’t really stand out to me so I was a bit surprised to find that he was the star in this book, and I was even more surprised to find out that his love interest was Lauren Williams, Nate’s assistant. Lauren rubbed me the wrong way when we met her in Hard Hitter because she was rude and snappish towards people for no reason.

Mike and Lauren were together for a year and a half after Mike split with his wife. Their relationship ended badly and abruptly when Mike suddenly decided to return to his wife. I was a bit pissed at Mike for this, even after learning the real reason why he ditched Lauren so callously and got back together with his wife. Lauren deserved better, and I’m glad that she didn’t give Mike an easy time when he approached her again.

Despite his faults in the past, Mike grew on me; he was easy to like. He was a devoted father to his annoying brat of a daughter, he was kind and caring, and he genuinely loved Lauren. I’m glad that Mike’s daughter is not the main obstacle to their relationship, because that drama would have been tiring. Instead, their relationship progressed quite naturally after Mike and Lauren made up and reconciled.

Favourite quote: “Thank you for making me happy.” [Mike to Lauren]

Overall it was a great second chance romance story, a little angsty, and no unnecessary drama. The epilogue made me tear up and laugh out loud. Oh, how I love a good happily ever after!

Now Nate x Becca book please.
