Where I got it: ARC from Elle Woods PR
They always say that two wrongs don’t make a right…
Well, she was wrong for breaking into a house that didn’t belong to her; even if she and her daughter had nowhere else to go.
And, I was wrong for watching her on the surveillance camera as she moved through the house and climbed into bed.
So I offered her a job and a home.
Wrong has never felt so right.
Now, I want to make the biggest impact yet…
I want to make her mine.
I received an ARC of this book for an honest review.
This was a heartbreaking story, really. Katy is a single mom struggling to make ends meet to support her 8-year old daughter, Bee. The hardest part of the story was reading the sadness in her daughter, who just wanted to have some stability in her life.
But in the same breath, this was a heartwarming story. Damon is co-owner of a construction business with his father and has a huge, Greek family who have no secrets! He discovers Katy and wants to hire her. Katy takes the job, but gains not only a great job, but a huge extended family for her and her daughter.
Damon was a great character. He was kind, loving and giving. He was falling for Katy and everyone in his life realized it before he did. He took such good care of Katy and Bee and was so good to Bee. He quickly became the dad she so desperately needed.
Katy was a tougher nut to crack. Her backstory was heartbreaking, and she had been on her own since she was 17 and her parents kicked her out. She was a good mom, and fiercely protective of her daughter. She had some major trust issues, that not only affected her, but Bee as well.
If I had a criticism, it would be there were SO many characters in this book that it was often hard to keep them straight. I didn’t read the first two books in the series (but I now want to) and maybe that would have helped. But I was confused often in the scenes involving the whole family.
I also felt that there wasn’t a neat resolution with Katy’s backstory. I would have liked that to be wrapped up a little better.
Overall, though, I really enjoyed this slow-burner and would recommend it.
