My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I'd like to preface this review with a very important note:
I do not like books with pregnant heroines. Its just a personal preference. I've never been able to get into the story, connect or relate with the characters in a book with a pregnant heroine. In addition, our pregnant single mother in this story has 4 other young children - which puts me even further out of the story. How do you manage to have a meaningful relationship with a brand new person in your life with your attention and energies being pulled in so many directions - AND have the progression of that relationship be believable??? I've NO idea, but apparently Claudia Connor does, and quite, quite well at that!
Matt and Abby meet on a beach while both are on vacation and Matt is immediately and irresistibly drawn to not only Abby, but her children as well. What seems to be a fleeting connection that will quickly be let go, easily moves into something more long-term and deep.
I found this book to be a really really great read. I was shocked to find myself deeply involved and eager to return to their story time and time again. I loved all of the characters, the talent that Ms. Connor displayed with each character was amazing and draws you deeply into the lives of her characters. The love story is superb, steamy, realistic and romantic. No one is perfect in this story and conflicts that happen are not glossed over, but faced in a realistic manner that adds to the richness of the story and writing.
Give this one a chance as I believe, like me, you will find it time well spent as well as a very well written, tender and steamy romance. I'm so glad that I did and I will be checking into this author's future work.
