Written in the third person, this book is the first in a series and stands alone with a HEA.
At the beginning of the book, Brooke lives in Seattle with her partner, although I wouldn’t say she’s happy. When he gets a call that his father is very ill in California, he stands by his side. Thus begins a chain of events that will change Brooke’s life forever. Along the way, she meets Luca, a handsome Italian single father to the lovely Frannie.
There are many things I could relate to about Brooke’s relationship with her father. Although hers is certainly a lot more complicated than mine. Many of the conversations she has with her father as she tries to ensure that he is taken care of and that she remains solvent were very familiar to me. I felt the honesty in the way Brooke tries to hold her life together while being pulled in too many directions at the same time. He was honest, genuine, and his feelings were very similar to many of the feelings I’ve experienced over the years while caring for my parents. It touched me in such a way I haven’t felt in a long period of time.
Luke is amazing. He’s my friend from the book, y’all. Own. He’s sensitive, protective, a little grumpy, and super attractive. I love the connection he and Brooke experience from the start. I love how he is as a father, son and brother. I love that she acknowledges that her relationship with Brooke is MORE and that she is able to create a sweet sweet relationship with Frannie that made me melt. I really enjoyed the way he talks to Brooke’s dad. I loved the warmth between Luca and Brooke. There’s no way they could stay apart.
