Fair warning for those opposed to insta-romance, this story moves fast!  But I loved it!  Something about Tempe and Nash seems to demand they don’t pussy-foot around.  Even with Nash’s son, Phillip, in the mix it still felt right to me.

The story of Nash and Tempe is one of timing, fate, signs.  They quite possibly would not have been ready for each other 6 months ago.  But now…now is the perfect time in both of their lives to find their happiness.  To allow themselves to take instead of give; although they both do a lot of giving still.

As a mom, I was interested to see the direction this fast paced romance would take with Phillip in the mix.  Melissa Foster did a great job of having Tempe step in and having Nash accept her suggestions.  Mostly because Tempe was never judgmental and always had the child’s best interest in mind.  Plus, everything was put in a way that Nash could see she had a point.  Even when he got touchy about certain things, Tempe understands it’s a natural reaction and Nash understands he’s being over-protective.  The dynamic between the two of them really works well.

Not only is the relationship sweet and tender, but Nash and Tempe also could set the room ablaze with their desire for each other.  The whole chapter that deals with Tempe’s first day moving into Nash’s house had me running between butterflies and hot flashes.  My oh my those two could generate enough electricity to light the town up!

If you can’t tell, I definitely think everyone should read this book.  It’s fun, thoughtful, sexy, heart-breaking, heart-mending, and heart-melting.  I came across this old post of mine from a few years ago about this series as a whole.  It may help you decide if you would read this as a standalone (which can be done) or if you want to read the series from the beginning (which I recommend).  At the time I wrote that post two years ago I had 9 books of this series.  I now have 48!  Most of them I’ve rated in the 4 star range and none have been rated less than 3 stars.  This author knows what she’s doing and she does it well.

5 stars
