I am such a sucker for sexy guys who are adorable with their children so naturally I loved this story!
Nadia was a great heroine. She was spunky and driven and sweet. I thought the decisions she made were very mature and I thought they were perfect for her life, if that makes sense. She was really great with kids and I loved how she loved Sam, Ty’s son.
Ty was a total sweetheart. His dedication was awe-inspiring. Having a child as young as he was and working full time, all while doing night classes...just hearing about it made me exhausted. He was a definite multi-tasker. I understood his reluctance to enter into a relationship because
The cast of supporting characters were exciting. Nadia’s roommates especially. I can’t wait for their stories. The plot was so great and the romance was five-star alarm hot! They had great chemistry, but more importantly, they clicked really well.
I loved this start of a promising new adult series, and I am most definitely looking forward to the next two books in the series.
Favorite Swoon-worthy Quote: In an instant, Ty closed the distance between us and cupped my face in his hands. His palms, oh, we’d been here before, but never like this. I licked my lips as his gaze skated over my face, kindled like a jar of honey in the sunlight. He made the hungriest sound I’d ever heard as he leaned in.
