Hilton a man of integrity and financial means was drawn to Ava because of her pure honesty and ability to love unconditionally. While he hides his wealth he uncovers the rest of his inner soul to Ava. He opens up about his son and Baby momma drama and how he wants a stronger relationship with his own son.
Ava is a divorced woman due to her inability to have children; she longed for a love of her very own. She runs from love and relationships since she's unable to bear children. While running from love, she runs into Marcus a child that is walking on the wrong side of the law but just needs love and guidance to get his life back on the right track. Ava forms a strong emotional bond with this child and begins to treat him like her very own. She also can't seem to run from Hilton, a man that wants to get to know her and the woman he thinks she is. Ava and Hilton go on a journey of taking parts and making it into a whole.
The story moves at the perfect pace and pitch. Everything in the story has purpose and meaning and draws you into imperfect lives willing to forgive and love at all costs. That is a lesson in this story that I hope every reader experiences. If you believe there is nothing better than love, this story was tailored made for you.
He wanted a family of his own.
Ever since she had engrossed herself in helping other people with their dreams as the leading wedding planner in the trendy but troubled city of Palmdale, Florida. She cherished the idea of happy couples and building lives and eventually a family together...knowing that for her, the reality was painfully different.
As Sarah Dessen says in "The Truth About Forever",
"There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment." and this what happened with Ava when she met an eight year old boy on the wrong side of the tracks and a handsome man, new in the town, all in the course of one evening.
As the book blurb says,
"Alliances are formed, bonds that soon deepen into something more special than she's ever known. Could these two males be the key to her attaining...A Love of Her Own ?"
A beautifully written story by Bettye Griffin that touches something deep within each of us. This is not your usual love story. It's a story of love coupled with longing, sacrifices, grief, sadness, strength and finally the satisfaction of doing your best in every difficulty.
The things that we take for granted like our parent's love, the sanctity of a home, the care we get from our loved ones and the surety of a stable future are things not all have.Read more ›

I really wanted to like this book. The plot was touching, so I kept reading hoping it would get better. There were so many unnecessary details that made it seem quite stilted. Read morePublished 11 months ago by DWallace
I enjoyed reading this book but felt it wasn't capturing the real nature of a blended family. The characters were realistic enough. Overall the book is enjoyable.Published 13 months ago by E. Karen Davis
