The plot was sweet enough but there really was no tension or suspense. The shifts in viewpoint were handled adequately but the constant jumping around in time was not. It was as each flashback scene was on a sheet of paper and the haphazardly drawn out of a hat. And finally a sixteen year old becomes a mother but there's very little mention of nerves and doubts and struggles. There's some potential so two stars.
However, with the chapters flitting back and forth between Bridget and Billy as well as past to present, I had a hard time keeping track of where in time we were. When engrossed in a story I'm not reading chapter titles. If this weren't a kindle book I would have read it in order.
If the few glaring typos and point of view errors were fixed and the chapters chronological, this would be a 5* read. Rare for a free book in my opinion.
First of all – I absolutely love Billy. He’s handsome, kind, loving, and devoted his life to taking care of “his girls.” This was not a guy out for sex or just wanting Bridget, he loved them both and spent 18 years making sure they were happy, healthy, and taken care of, even though Katie was not his child. For any woman who has ever raised a child on their own, you know what I’m talking about. His jealousy over Bridget’s boyfriends, his rage towards Katie’s boyfriends, and his nervousness about telling Bridget how he felt just made him that much more adorable. I loved Bridget also, but honestly, she took a back seat to Billy in my opinion. Yes, she was thrown out at 16, pregnant, boyfriend and friends dumped her yet she still survived. But, would her life have turned out so well without Billy? She never asked him for a thing, but he was always there anticipating any needs that she or Katie had. I liked her, don’t get me wrong, but I got more attached to Billy.
What I really loved about this book is how it demonstrates that everyone’s family is different. Family doesn’t have to mean that you are blood-related, married, siblings, etc. Some of us are close and warm and fuzzy with our family, while some of us choose our own family of people who we care about and trust. Billy, Bridget, and Katie didn’t have the “typical” family in the novel, yet Katie grew up happy and healthy and loved them both. Sometimes a family just falls into place whether because of bad circumstances like Bridget’s, or just people that are alone and looking for others to connect with in a way that they couldn’t connect with their natural family.
Let me say that there are some aggravating moments in this novel. Not because of the writing, but because I would get frustrated with either Billy or Bridget for not just speaking up and saying how they feel! Honestly, I adored this story and cannot wait to read more of Cristin Cooper’s novels in the future. This novel was romantic but realistic, dreamy but mixed with real-life. This isn’t some billionaire novel where he comes in and sweeps the girl off of her feet, this is two people who just happened to come together and try to make the best life possible for a little girl.
