 Review by pearls
I was gifted an ARC still undergoing revisions in exchange for an honest review. I had not read the first book in the series  and was able to follow this book fine.
The star of this romance is the 5 year old daughter.  Through all the pain and heartache, her light keeps her mother going and draws people into their little family.  Alex is as much in love with her as with her mother.  You have to love a man who loves kids.  Watching him balance his "two women" puts a smile on your face.  The attraction between the Alex and Alyssa is instantaneous, but it takes her a while to cope with her thawing heart's feelings.  Alex is patient and understanding.  The all around nice guy in a hunky 6'4" frame.  While I understood Alyssa's motivation to leave all she knew behind, I didn't understand how she went over 2 years without a phone call or letter/email home. 

About the Author:
A romance nerd at heart, I tend to find inspiration in my dreams, or when walking my dog.  My love for romance goes all the way back to when I was 15, and laying on my best friend’s bed reading romance books.  It only took me 25 years to start putting all my stories on paper….well actually a computer.  I was born and raised in Michigan, now live in the South in North Carolina.  So my accent sounds like a Yankee with a slight Southern drawl.  When I am not writing you will find me reading, or baking.

My real life romance started when I was just 19.  Now over 20 years later, my husband is not only my lover but my best friend.  We only raise furry kids, we have one dog and two cats.  Our animals are all rescues.
I am a foodie, who loves creating recipes. 

Over four years ago I started a food blog at CafeTerraBlog.  My love for food is why each of my books will always share new recipes made by the characters.

I love connecting with my followers.  You can find me on Facebook and Twitter.  I will keep you up to date on what I am writing, book release dates, and so much more on my website.
