"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

This started out really comical. The scenes and descriptions were witty and I chuckled out loud quite a few times at the chaos with the kids. Rem and Cassi also had an entertaining rapport and great banter with plenty of innuendo. It kept the dialogue fun to read.
As the story progresses though, some of the issues get a little heavier, and I noticed the tone shifted from light-hearted romcom to life problems and miscommunication, which was disappointing as the author shows talent at writing humorous scenarios. While it’s not angsty, whiplash was starting to build from Rem’s changing resolutions to win her back or let her go. And poor Cassi with those 5 grown brothers of hers—oh man she was a saint for putting up with them as much as she did. None of them were endearing and Tidus needed to man up long before he did. Either there wasn’t enough resolution there or he got off easy. And speaking of getting off easy, that social worker needed a complaint filed about her and her racist remark.
There were certainly places were this story affirmed my disdain for judgmental small towns, and did the public library not know they make washable children’s paint these days??? Or hello, Crayola’s ColorWonder only shows up on special paper! As far as I was concerned, the only person who should have been ashamed in that situation was the children’s librarian who ran the program.
I gotta say, the cover is alluring—the abs, the V, the baby—yeah it grabbed my attention. Told via Remington and Cassi’s alternating first person POV, there are a few hot scenes too. That tub and that porch…well it’s used well. I do wish the tale would have been clearer on whether Rem had been celibate or not. I’m going to hope for the best, especially since Cassi at twenty-some years old and a college graduate was a still a virgin. On the plus side, the story is free of OW/OM drama. I also give kudos for depicting an interracial couple, something that’s not embraced enough in contemporary romance market.
I just love the way Sosie described the antics of Rem's nieces. She definitely has a way of making the reader feel that they are right there in the midst of the action of two little girls. This was a sweet story about a much maligned and misunderstood bad boy who dropped everything to come back home to take care of his nieces and find himself in the process along with re-igniting the love he had for the only woman he ever loved.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story.
This is the first of a series on the Payne family, and the epilogue basically sets up the next book in the set--we don't have a grasp of the time frame, or other things that happened. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book, and actually purchased a copy, too.
The love these two share is shattered during their youth and at risk due to lies, family and hometown conflicts.
The Marshall name is ostracized in the town of Butterpond and his escape for the last five years has only made wounds deeper.
His sister Emma is in trouble and he's in over his head caring for his two nieces, but when Cassi comes into his life again he asks for her help.
There's alot threatening their second chance, will it be ruined by his urgent need to run and truths left unsaid?
Will the Payne family recover their lost familial bonds and rebuild their farm?
