Maggie Larken is a reformed party girl. After her parent’s death, she’s left to raise Asher, her nine-year-old brother.
Luke Wilson has done everything his parents have ever asked of him. A new teacher, Luke constantly questions where his life is headed.
When Luke and Maggie meet, neither is in the market for a relationship. But sometimes life has other plans. Both navigate new waters as they try to decide where their priorities should lie, while also seizing what they want.
In this heartbreakingly real tale of love, Maggie and Luke discover what being a family truly means.
*This book is a standalone and NOT part of a series. This book contains mature content.
This is the first book of Taylor’s that I have read and I must say it won’t be the last.
I loved everything about it. The characters were so easy to fall in love with, especially Asher, he was such a cutie that will melt your heart. Maggie is a strong female character that takes on the roll as Asher’s mom when their parents die. She is an inspiration to all young mothers who try to juggle kids and life. Luke is a new teacher with several siblings that he feels the need to protect from their father, who is a nasty piece of work.
I fell in love with the story from the very first chapter and couldn’t put it down. I devoured it in a few hours and was sent on a roller-coater of emotions through this beautiful story.
All of Taylor’s books are now in my TBR list on Goodreads.
This book was so beautifully written, that you felt and went through everything with the all of the characters, even the supporting characters.
If you like realistic romance you will LOVE this!
