Typically I can’t get enough of single parent romance, and if you throw in a sexy detective I’m a goner. So needless to say I had some pretty high expectations when I read the blurb for this one and while parts of it exceeded those expectations others fell flat leaving me feeling just kind of neutral on it. So, let’s break it down.
What I loved:
Luke. Literally everything about him. He’s so insanely sweet, patient and kind willing to do anything to make Kate and Her son happy.
Luke’s family. I always love, love, love, and big close family that rallies around each other and that is his family to a T.
Kate as a mother. When it comes to her son nothing is too much for Kate. The strength she had starting over on her own while making sure her son knew how much he is loved completely stole my heart.
What i didn’t love:
Kate. While on one hand I loved Kate on the other her stubbornness really took a lot from their story for me at times which made it drag for me. It was like Kate was set on slow burn and Luke was set on instalove. While I fully understand her reluctance, I also found myself frustrated with no matter how much Luke did to prove to her he was in it forever she never fully trusted him.
Overall, even with the frustration I still kept on reading and found myself enjoying more than just a little of their story.
