Reagan Hudson's life changed in the blink of an eye six years ago when she found out she was pregnant and on her own. Since then, Reagan has vowed never to let another man into her life so that no one can walk out on her, or her son, again. But the more she runs into her brother's hot and mysterious friend, the more he sparks something in her that she promised herself she wouldn't feel again.
Can two people with everything to lose allow themselves to finally capture the love they both deserve?
This was a heartfelt story with some trauma references, but not delved into too deeply to make this a dark read. It's light and lovely. The single mom story with the adorable son was great. Reagan has dealt with a lot, but I loved how supportive her family was of her and how much they encouraged her. Parker, her son, was nearly perfect, which made him slightly unrealistic (I have three sons, so I should know), but he was so adorable that I forgave it.
The romance was super sweet. It was pretty quick, but I guess with a novella, I expected it. But Coen and Reagan were really great together, so I really enjoyed their romance. The way they understood each other, were there for each other, and improved with each other, was heartfelt. Then add in the family aspect of Coen with Reagan's son, Parker, forming a terrific trio, and I couldn't help but root for these two.
