In Jessica's words - if you're looking for a light, fun, romantic read, this is the perfect book! I thought is was a very sweet, romantic book. It was easy to get sucked in and feel like I was really there... like it was something that could really happen. It was written beautifully and yes, I want more. My fave read of the summer!
I have to agree with her, this was a very touching book! You could feel the pain of both Caleb's past ad Abby's. They both worked through their pain and suffering, Caleb with his deceased wife, and now in turn helping Abby work through hers.
Caleb lost his wife 4 years prior, and is still working through his grief when it's time for his little girl, Madison to start kindergarten. Abby is Madison's teacher, and finds herself at a loss for words when she first meets Caleb.
Abby hadn't noticed anyone else standing with them. She gazed up just beside Madison and saw him. Losing her balance, she fell flat on her bottom. This daddy who liked to give butterfly kisses leaned down to offer her help. "Are you okay?" He didn't hide the concern on his face.
The most gorgeous man she had ever laid eyes on was standing right above her. In addition to his looks, something about his presence immediately drew her in. How had she not noticed him before? His prominent brows shadowed his eyes from the sun, making it difficult to determine the color of his deep-set eyes. It took her a moment to realize that she was sitting on the asphalt at school, ogling this little girl's daddy. Madison let out a childish giggle.Read more ›
So here is the deal. This book has overblown descriptions, too much detail on the minutiae, and just a lack of basic punctuation. That is the bottom line. I used the rest of this review just to let it all go. It could just be me, my mood, my basic personality flaws that made this a really bad book for me.
This book had it all, a cute title, a reasonable price for a new-to-me author, and one of my favorite tropes. No reason not to click it, right?
From the very first page, I had my doubts.
It starts with a death scene, a death scene of the wife, mother, and daughter. All one person. Everybody was there. They let the future widower go last to sit and talk his wife. All I could think of was, well, what if she hadn't lasted through all the good-byes and he missed his chance.
It was overblown, overly dramatic, and just so so not right.
Then there is a nightmare scene. Again, wrong on many levels. The nightmare victim apparently has lungs still filled with the "gut wrenching [not gut-wrenching] hospital scent lingering in them."
Then as he gets out of bed, "Following a low grunt, Caleb ran strong fingers through his thick messy black hair."
Made me wonder if the grunt was a quick little grunt or if the grunt was slow enough Caleb could catch up with him. But goodness, if you have thick messy black hair [as opposed to thick, messy, black hair, or even thick, messy black hair] it probably makes it easier to follow that grunt.
Caleb, with his soon-to-be-combed hair, can't just walk down a hall into a child's bedroom. He must walk down a "dark wood floored hallway [I will let you hyphenate that one as you will] into the pink princess room.Read more ›
This story gave me goosebumps and made my heart swell a lot of times. Caleb and Abby are just so perfect for each other for they have completely healed each other's pains and utterly filled up the emptiness they've been having for such a long time now. I loved how the author narrated the story. She has a way with words that kept me enthralled from start to finish. This book will make you laugh (a lot, I bet yah!), sigh, swoon and will keep you satisfied at the end. It has the perfect balance of angst and humor, not too much drama as I may say though would still put your stomach in knots at times.
I loved the characters in this story. Aside from Caleb & Abby whom I totally adore, I also love Madison - the cutest, funniest and most adorable princess ever. She has basically stolen most of the highlights of this story that I would want to have a daughter like her in the future. Her innocence and pure love towards her father and her new Momma is really awe-inspiring. I freakin' love this little girl. Leah? The bestest best friend in the whole wide world is an amazing character as well. She has given more life into the story. She's sassy, smart, beautiful, passionate and the kind of friendship she shares with Abby is really very admirable. Love this girl.
Caleb? Holy Effin' Hawt! Everytime he opens his mouth and say something, my heart melts. He's every woman's dream come true. My perfect guy and undeniably earned a book boyfriend status...lol!Read more ›
