Libby is a bit silly and is trying to figure out what her next step is going to be in her life. She is attracted to Tom and is working to help draw him out. Tom is also attracted to Libby, but is wanting to just finish the job and move on. He doesn't need things to complicate his life.
The romance slowly builds between the two and there are other family and friends that well round out this story.
The author does a wonderful job building their romance. It's not a "his eyes met hers and there were sparks. he couldn't get her visage out of his head and was determined to MAKE HER HIS OWN!" (cue ominous music here...)
They are both initially a bit wary of each other, but various circumstances throw they together. And these circumstances do not feel overly contrived. Tom helps her family and you can tell that it takes a toll on him (he's worn out and tired). He's not the unstoppable, alpha-male hero. He is all male, but he is seeing a therapist for help.
Both characters are believable and the conversations sound real. The story flows really well and things end with a HEA. But it's not a sickeningly sweet ending (although sometimes I love those!). No cliff hangers. No series of books. Just this one. (phew - thank you T.Brogan!)
It's also very realistic because not EVERYONE thinks they are wonderful. There are older parents that may not feel super happy about how things are going. So that adds an element of realism.
The teenager also takes time to come around and the relationship she has takes time to heal. It's not even fully healed at the ending, but they are certainly on their way.
I like that Tom is hurting, but he is not angst-ridden broken. He doesn't go around whining constantly that he isn't worth anyone's love. He doesn't send Libby mixed signals. When he is confused, he thinks to talk to his therapist b/c he really is trying hard to heal.
There is scene where Libby is hurt by Tom (emotionally), thankfully she doesn't go on a rant and breakdown. She is sad and hurt, but is able to hold onto her feelings and doesn't throw a fit.
These are real people that act pretty rationally.
There is some steaminess, but it's limited to one or two scenes. Just right.
A nice, sweet romance with 'real' people. Where they heal each other, but the heroine helps the hero more - and it's very sweet.
A little attraction develops between Tom and Libby...It's complicated because of his daughter but can they make things work?
My first book by Tracy Brogan and won't be my last. It was funny, shocking at times, where you just want to say OMG! I can't believe that just happened. Moments you wan to cry and in a good way.
My favorite lines..well two.
"Ouch! Geez, don't take it out on me just because you can't close the deal," Marti said."
"Libby flicked her again. "Shut up, Marti.
"Girls, stop roughhousing. Libby has a pie to deliver, Nana scolded, " And I'm not quite sure what what you are talking about, but I have a pretty good idea. I'm not that old. " She handed the pie to Libby. "Trust me. This will work. How do you think I got your grandfather's attention?"
