4 out of 5 stars
I’m a sucker for a single dad, and I’m so glad I gave this book a chance because this single dad was awesome!
Griffin is a single dad to 8-year old Levi, who is just the sweetest little boy I’ve read in a long time. Griffin and Levi move into a new apartment, now that Griffin’s restaurant is doing well and he’s got some money. Upon moving in, Levi is literally knocked down by Maverick, the lab of his stunning neighbor, Ava Milano.
Ava – oh my god, this girl was funny. She was a graphic designer and designed book covers, and had a million different taco t-shirts. This girl seriously loved her tacos, her dog and her family, who emigrated to the US from Honduras for a better life. I pictured her as a young Selma Hayek (I know she’s not from Honduras, but the figure).
Anyway, Griffin is smitten with Ava right away – as is Levi (more with the dog, but the owner too). Ava has some major trust issues, due to being cheated on and believes Griffin to be a player. Yes, he’s had his share of fun, but realizes quickly he’s really into Ava and only wants her.
Ava is a good character, but her insecurities got a little old after a while. Griffin was so great. So dedicated to his family (I loved his brother and his wife) and his restaurant. He was so sweet to Ava, and I just loved him.
This book was so sweet and I was bummed when it ended at 76%. There are two epilogues, and I enjoyed them both, so I was satisfied with the ending.
Overall, I very much enjoyed this story and would recommend it.
