Book Review by Bree Herron
A man trying to live up to his promise, a child struggling to make sense of tragedy and both needing a woman to help them heal. This book is all the best feelings and more. And the first line will grab you!
Drew is the charmer, well now he is. He does sound like he was a bit rough around the edges in high school. Being a jock and popular. He is showing he is a man of honor now, though and I can always enjoy a great character that has grown up. Drew begins with ice cream, and confusion,and trust me you need some great ice cream to dig into with this book. It calls for it. What the reader doesn’t expect is the quick ability to fall for Drew, I am a sucker for characters like him.
Lauren is strong. Jill Kemerer has that ability to give her females strength during adversity. Just like Drew Lauren has grown up from her high school time. And she is certainly not looking to the past, well okay she is a woman and holds a small grudge/feelings for awhile but just like this reader, she comes around. I really felt for her in guarding her emotions, it is hard to feel at times and this is displayed beautifully in this story.
Our beloved characters will melt your heart, and give you the warm and fuzzies. How could it not? With the heart warming message and ability to love those that aren’t blood, this book hits it out of the park.
