I loved how emotional this story was. Everyone having to come to terms with the new reality in a very short amount of time. It was definitely an emotional rollercoaster. But I loved every minute of it.
I loved Ethan. He’s successful and sweet, yet has a completely messed up view of himself because of his ADHD. I really liked how his thought processes were shown in the book, the constant switch from one subject to another and how he really struggled to focus. It’s not the most important thing about him, but it is important and I liked that it played a strong role in the person he was and the choices he made.
I liked Stevie too, especially the way she sees Ethan. She is so very good for him – and he’s pretty good for her – and I admired her strength and determination. I also liked how telling Ethan was hard, but so was coming to terms with bringing him into her life.
Then there is Zach, the son, who is amazing most of the time, precocious always, and also has the makings of a major dictator. As amazing as his relationship with Stevie was, there were times when I just wanted her to take control a little more. She gives him far too much power. However, their relationship is strong and key to everything and it works really well.
From the very start, I found this an absorbing, entertaining and often emotional read. The characters are nicely developed, the relationship are difficult and interesting and complicated and the whole thing was pure enjoyment, with bonus beach loveliness. I look forward to seeing what this author comes up with next.

Zach is a precocious child- and I loved the way Ash wrote his character. However, him being thrown for a loop that his father is alive and a person he has befriended on vacation causes Zach to lash out. Coping with the new found relationship, Zach, Stevie and Ethan all have to learn how to navigate their feelings and what they want from each other while respecting each other's feelings. It was touchy with Zach, but I loved how things were resolved.
I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley for a freely given and honest review.
