Type: Contemporary Romance, Woman in power, Adoption, Empty Nesters?
My Review: I was not prepared for this book. I offered to review it, thinking it might be a nice change. Something different for me, considering I'm not the biggest fan of books with kids. But then this book happened, and I was beyond pleasantly surprised by how much I loved it. I was invested in these characters, I had to know what was going to happen - would everything really work out?
This is my second book by Julia Kent, and I'm surprised she hasn't come up sooner in my never ending search for the next great read. Both books I've read by her featured intriguing stories, with great hooks. And she adds just the right amount of humor - subtle, fitting in perfectly with the tone of the rest of the book.
Cover Lovin': One hot cover! Definitely caught my eye.
Recommendation: Nada. No prior knowledge necessary.
Final Rating: FOUR AND A HALF out of FIVE stars!! (4.5/5) This blew me away with how much I loved it. This is a one-sitting read for sure- you won't want to put it down!!
Disclaimer: I received an advanced copy for review purposes.
