There were characters to dislike and those to like and they were well drawn considering the book is short. However, the book leaves things unfinished and in stead of tying up the loose ends, the author uses the last chapter to set up the pair for the next book. That is irritating enough but the author's comments after ending this book tries to tease us about the next one. "Sign up for an exclusive bonus chapter." "Find out what happens when Harrison and Sara tell James they're getting married." The answer to that one should have been the last chapter! So the author turns what probably would be a HEA into a CLIFF HANGER tease to get us to buy the next book.
That won't be happening. I hate CLIFF HANGERS and the author ruined this story by the blatant sales move at the end of this one.
I've added her name to my list of CLIFF HANGER WRITERS to avoid.
That’s as far as I could read the whole story went straight down the drain.
Again - the writing is just juvenile and immature. She doesn't seem like a grown woman. She's still stuck in high school worried about what people said and thought about the girl from "the wrong side of the tracks" years ago!! And then, on their first date, they run into one of those people who actually seems to be stuck in time as well. Throwing stupid rumor/insults at her that are ancient history. It's just ridiculous.
Unfortunately, it had the potential, but was a dnf for this reader.
When finding her son with swollen glands she fears the worst and takes him to the top oncologist in the area. That's when we get to meet Dr. Harrison Thornton. He is confident, reassuring and gorgeous. Everything you want a man to be packed into one package. He immediately sees Sara as you the reader will but Sara is still, in her mind, this trashy daughter of a drunk from the wrong side of the tracks.
Harrison doesn't give her fear notice but goes to work telling and showing all the good things that make desirable. He is a bit of a surprise I must say because as professional as he may be he has a bad boy side that I found highly attractive. There are different issues that arise in their path to love that will get you going. Starting with a meddling mother (Harrison's) an ex husband and a old high school trouble maker.
I loved the authors approach to slowly take her reader through the steps of two endearing characters. The descriptions and dialog was all enjoyable as were the side characters. Sara's son, James, totally adorable. To see him and Harrison and his matchmaking were one of my favorite parts. Caleb, Marc and Jujibee all siblings of Harrison's were not a bit snobbish as their mother. In fact, Caleb is a cop and has a thing for Megan who is Sara's little sister.
I can't wait to read The Very Thought of you. That's their story and you get a glimpse from their book at the end of this one. If I had one thing I'd like different it might have been to see me on Kyle end (Sara's ex and James's dad). I'm not sure as sara and Harrison's separation about killed me. This is not a clean read but the H is not a manwhore prior to book. That's a plus for me. Such a great book and one I'd read again. Enjoy!

On the one hand I enjoyed the story and the developing relationship between Sara, Harrison and her son.
On the other hand some parts of the plot made no sense to me at all. Harrison's mother went out of her way to be rude and destructive, absolutely determined to split the couple up.
And yet we are then told that she had been deemed unworthy of the man she had married (Harrison's Dad). As a result they were ostracised and their life was made hell.
So I would have expected her to be more understanding and to give Sara the benefit of the doubt even if she couldn't instantly welcome Sara with open arms. Especially as she knew that their family was considered to be like royalty in Fair Haven and the rest of the town would have followed her lead.
I don't understand how she could have behaved the way she did which resulted in making life hell for the young couple.
Also Sara's ex was causing problems but then suddenly disappeared from the storyline. It might be a bit clichéd but I think the author could have got more mileage out of that storyline.
So not bad at all for a free book. Not sure if I am convinced enough to give this author another go and actually pay for the next book in the series.
you can get so involved with the characters and as trial a go through to their ending...
So sit down with your favourite cuppa and enjoy the read...👩💻👌🤩🥰😷🐘
She worked hard and became a teacher. James her six year old son was in remission with cancer, she took him to the oncologist for a check up, who just happened to be a man she knew from school Harrison Trenton, who came from the right side of the tracks
