Almost Everything by Christie Ridgway is AVAILABLE NOW!
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ from Ari
This is the third book in the Almost Series and my first book by author Christie Ridgway. Although it is book three in the series is can’t be read as a standalone novel.
After her father is killed in Afghanistan, Layla Parker has come to Crescent Cove to complete a bucket list of things he always wanted to do with her and that he always carried with him in his helmet.
Injured combat medic, Vance Smith has arrived at Crescent Cove on a mission to fulfill a promise. The promise was to complete a list along with the daughter of an injured Colonel Parker whom he tried to save and couldn’t. Armed with a a wishlist and a photograph of Colonel Parker’s ten year old daughter, Vance books a month-long stay at Beach House #9. But when Layla arrives Vance is surprised to learn she isn’t the ten year old child from the pucture. She’s an adult and the most beautiful woman he’s laid eyes on. Despite the attraction is he feels and the unease at having to spend a whole month with her, he is determined to fulfill his promise.
This was such a sweet story with equally endearing characters. The connection and attraction between Vance and Layla is sweet without being over the top and too obvious. The writing was very good and had me anxiously turning the pages to get to their happily ever after. I look forward to reading more from Christie Ridgway and the previous two books in the Almost Series. 4 stars.
Layla Parker travels to Crescent Cove to meet the soldier who tried to save her father in battle. Her dad’s final request was for her to enjoy a month of sun, sand, and fun along with the handsome combat medic, Vance Smith. Despite her sadness, she’s determined to follow through.
Vance is flummoxed when he meets the full-grown daughter of his fallen officer. He’d expected a little girl. But a promise is a promise, and it gets harder by the day to resist the charms of the beautiful woman who threatens the safety of his scarred heart. But he’s honor-bound not to touch her…right? Except there’s the beautiful beach and the beautiful woman and the promise of a beautiful future…all a man could want if only he chose to risk everything.
**This is a previously published STANDALONE romance.
