Melanie, divorced, mother of two teens, happy owner of a bridal shop was meeting again her high school crush/nemesis Ben, you can be sure that there will be some smoking hot sparkling!
After her husband cheated on her, and moving on with his new wife and his other kid,being a single mother of two teens (Carrie and Gia) wasn’t an easy job.
Melanie’s craziness and feisty side was so much fun and Ben’s cockiness as well.
This story about this woman trying to get a life back without any man’s help, being three of a kind was endearing. But when Ben’s witty charm and hotness kept tempting her, maybe it was time to move on. The banter? Full of flirty and sexy moments, with a lot of laughter and amazing chemistry in bed.
Even after her divorce, she was still believing in HEA but Ben was having commitment issues. As the story unfolds, the casual encounters between the two of them became so much more but Melanie wanted to protect her family and be sure about her next man.
There were both emotionally in different places. I was delightfully surprised by Ben’s character, sexy daddy of a teen as well, so charming, but completely confused when it comes to Melanie. He kept saying her that they just had to enjoy the fullness of the present without thinking about the future. As you might guess, Melanie wasn’t in the same state of mind.
It was a great idea to have the three girls’ POV and how each one lives’ were entwined. For sure, Melanie was a little bit overwhelmed by her kids and when both of their stories collided, I was so eager to read the next ones, with some ideas about the next plots to come.
I enjoyed the “crazy”, with all these endearing characters. Obviously, the story was kinda predictable, but I have to say that I was immediately caught into it. There was a great balance in the story, characters, and a great mix of humor and good feelings. The dynamic was awesome and you couldn’t not get attached to them.
Carrie Maynard has come a long way from the awkward teenager who sat in front of the most popular boy in calculus class. She’s now a young, independent woman with a great job, a loving boyfriend, and a close knit family. But something still seems to missing.
Jason Wilder is no longer the cute teenage boy that Carrie crushed on from high school. He is now a hardworking, handsome man and one of Carrie’s very best friends. He is the perfect guy just looking for his perfect girl. Uncertain that he’s actually found her in his girlfriend, Ashley, he goes through the motions, hoping she will fill the void Carrie has left in his heart, ever since the day they met back in high school.
When circumstances change and feelings can no longer be ignored, will Carrie continue to sit on the sidelines, watching someone else live out the future with the boy she loved from so long ago, or will she take the next step with the man that’s always owned her heart?
Sometimes taking a risk for love isn’t always easy.
Sometimes even the strongest of friendships are put to the test.
Gia Maynard always had a wild streak. She doesn’t mind bending the rules, except when it comes to the rules of her heart. She doesn’t do relationships, instead she devotes her time to her true love….dancing. That is until Jasper Campbell comes along. Handsome, rich and powerful, Gia becomes totally enthralled with him until she finds herself slowly turning into someone she no longer knows.
Cam Hamilton has always been like a big brother to Gia. Now one of the hottest baseball players in the Major League, he is known for his moves on and off the field. But no matter how many women he has in his life, Gia will always be his number one.
When Gia’s heart is broken into pieces, Cam is right there to help her put it back together. When they both give in to their feelings for each other, will they be able to pretend that certain lines were never crossed, and certain feelings were never felt? Will Gia follow the rules that she has lived by for her entire life or is Cam the one worth breaking all of them for?
Ever since I can remember, I have always enjoyed Creative Writing. There was always something about being able to travel to a different place or become a different person with just the stroke of a pen – or in today’s world a touch of the keyboard. I am the author of The Exception To The Rule, An Unplanned Lesson, An Unplanned Life Drowning In Love, A Cry for Hope, A Will To Change, Blind Side of Love, When The Chips Are Down and Easy Silence.
My life is not as interesting as my books or the characters in them, but then again whose life is? I’m a mom of twin teenage boys, a crazy Border Collie and a cat with an identity crisis! I guess you can say writing is my form of Calgon!
