Madison is not forth coming about who she really is or that Stephen is the father of Milo. In fact, she goes out of her way to hide all evidence of Milo at first. She plays it off as long as she can. But when he catches a glimpse at her license the jig is up. However, she still tries to keep Milo's existence from him as long as she can. But when a comment gets misunderstood she blurts it out in a moment of anger and then completely shuts Stephen down and runs away.
And this is where the emotional roller coaster begins. Trust has been broken... years of past hurts have surfaced... and both Madison and Stephen have no clue where to go from here. Madison has a hard time of letting go of the past and does everything she can to shut him down. She seems to be very insecure and lets her pride get in the way. She thinks that since Stephen left her once, he'll do it again so she just won't give him the chance. Stephen on the other hand proves to be more than patient with Madison. In all honesty the man is a saint! He had every reason to be a complete jerk towards the end of the book but his love for Madison was too great and he was determined that they would get their HEA... together as a family.
While both parties are to blame for how things played out, I think there are 2 more that should have shouldered the majority of the blame... her parents. But that was never really addressed in the book. And I'm not going to lie... that irritated me beyond belief! Stephen missed out on SEVEN years of his son's life because 2 people filled their daughter's head full of lies and always hung up on Stephen whenever he called for Madison. I would have LOVED to see Madison and Stephen confront her parents and see them eat a little crow. But alas... it didn't happen. :(
Even though there were parts of the book that had me angry and growling, Echoes of Summer was a cute, sweet read that kept me engaged through the whole thing. I read it in less than 24 hours for crying out loud! And that's saying something since I have been in that dreaded reading rut for a few weeks now! Lol. This was my first book by Laura D. Bastian and I look forward to reading more by her!
