*ARC provided by the publisher*
When tragedy strikes, Zoe Anderson finds herself in the one role she never expected to have: mother. Sharing guardianship of four-year-old twins with sexy Rafe Kirkland is a responsibility she simply cannot accept. Rafe is just going to have to take care of the boys himself.
Rafe's not prepared to be a single parent either, but deserting the children is not an option—and he's never been as attracted to a woman as he is to their godmother. He proposes a solution: Zoe and the boys will move in with him, at least until other arrangements can be made. Or until he can convince her to make their temporary family permanent.
Zoe reluctantly agrees to the plan, but even after she loses her heart to the twins, she can't possibly take that emotional risk with Rafe…
What I thought:
This was really good and a bit sad too! I was teary eyed through bits of this. I'm glad that Zoe wasn't a natural, since she didn't have kids. It made it so realistic for her to have trouble with kids she's always known but never had to play the role of parent. And Rafe! I just loved him!
I kept laughing everytime one of the kids yelled out "Snookums!" I loved that. The kids were just fun to read about. They were little monsters (but hey, one 4 year old can be trouble, can't imagine two!) and were always up to something! It was hard to read when they didn't really realize what was going on to the full extent.
I liked the romantic tension in this. It didn't feel rushed and it didn't feel like it took too long either. I had a good laugh through most of this book. It was well written and the narrative drew me in. Definitely worth a read, just might want to keep a tissue handy! This was my first book by Jennifer Greene, it won't be my last.
