Alex just needs another few minutes... not to get ready to say "I Do", but to see if the pregnancy test has on line of if there are two. Of course, Harlow can't wait and worries something is wrong, she bursts into the bathroom to wait with Alex. Now she has a great wedding present for Blake! The next few months prove challenging with ups and downs... I'm sure you will enjoy all the new additions to Alex's family!
Holding each other, we both stare at the solid silver diamond shaped charm that simply reads "Baby on Board". ... Memories of all the charms he's given me since we were kids enter my mind, my crucial mistake becoming clear. "Blake, I totally just gave myself a present."
There are a lot of ups and downs, but that's reality, right? At times I wanted to smack Alex, she is just so darned stubborn! But I always felt the love that she has for Blake and her girls. L.B. has a gift for telling the story in the first person, and Alex is a hoot to read! Her thoughts are hilarious, and I laughed many a time "listening" to her thinking about something and then suddenly going off on a tangent, like suddenly thinking of a line from one of her favorite movies, then going right back to her original line of thinking. And Blake...sigh, I thought he was dreamy in Running on Empty, but he is dreamy times ten in this book. He has the patience of a saint with his three stepdaughters and even more patience with Alex.
I am very happy and satisfied with this book and the way L.B. concludes Alex and Blake's story. It gave me the HEA that I love to get in a book, but not so final that we couldn't get more of their story in future books or spin offs.
Marrying a woman with three children is not easy and what starts off as a romantic and happy union turns into a mix of emotional clashes, bickering over everyday chores and questions about the right way to parent a trio of energetic but spoiled little girls.
All's well that ends well in the long run and they get their HEA but not until they have to suffer from growing pains and really letting go of the past.
A new character is introduced in this book and she will be the subject of the next book...a wild child beauty.

"We're supposed to be partners in this, Alex, but instead, we're two strangers, living two separate lives, inhabiting the same living space."
Recovery is a look at what happens after the happy ever after. Everything is not always rosy and perfect. I have to say I was a little nervous to start Recovery. I like my happy ever afters... I like turning that last page with a big goofy smile on my face. Why would I want to read about the troubles that come after? Well, I knew that even though there were difficulties as Alex and Blake learn how to merge their separate lives into one... that there would still be another big goofy grin on my face at the end. And I'm happy to say there very much was one.
"So, when things don't make sense to you, try not to waste time being upset about it. Stuff works out the way it's supposed to. Some things just take longer than others."
We see a lot of character growth in Recovery. The only problem I had with Alex in Running on Empty is that she found it so hard to ask for help. This is carried into Recovery, and finally she understands that she needs to do more than let Blake into her heart. She has to open up her whole life to him and allow him to be there for her and the girls. Blake is as always perfect. The man is like a dream come true... love him to bits.
We also get our first peek at Noah and Tatum, they are the characters that Running in Place will be focused around. I think I am really going like these two. There is also an excerpt at the end which gives us a bit of a sneak peek, now we just have to wait for it's release.
"... now that I have you, I'm never, ever going to let you go again. You are mine. Without you, I am nothing."
