A sweet book. A one night stand results in an unexpected pregnancy. The problem is that Eve slowly realizes she is in love with the perfect friend Shep. Amazingly it all works out. This romance was fun to read.

This was just a perfect brake from the last two thrillers I read. It gave me all the right feels, cute, quirky and funny. I laughed and cried, I absolutely love the characters and the way they met. I remember a very long time ago meeting someone through a mixed up number, so I fully connected and it made me feel nostalgic. The narrators did an awesome job, I almost felt as if I was watching a full ROM com movie in my head. Love, love, loved this.

Cara Bastone has done it! Given me a romance that has restored my faith in old-fashioned, slow burn, storytelling Romance with heterosexual MCs. I'd become convinced that all the good writing had moved to M/M Romance.

It's been a while coming, that a mainstream Romance succeeded in snaring my attention.

Made possible by Bastone's irresistible MC Sebastian Dorner, and the troubled Via DeRosa, Seb's son's teacher.

But the doorstopper is that there is so much story in this. Every part of it is story - as important as the MCs were, they were tethered to, moved along by the steady stream of the story. I think I've missed that in Romance. Often, all aspects of the novel are so heavily dominated by the personality of the two leads and their interactions. I'm not complaining because It's one of the appeals of Romance for me, how character driven it is - but strong story - I'd forgotten how good that is.

Seb is such an appealing man: a craftsman, a devoted father to his small son Matty, so social and conscientious he volunteers at school, he's liked by all, and all women in his town follow him as if he was on Instagram, which he's not.

It's the unassuming, and somewhat damaged former foster kid, Via, who interests him, but he treads so carefully. It takes a while for this romance to leave the ground, but it's not a boring wait - it's a showcase of the storyteller's craft.
