I knew the moment I started reading this book that it would end up being a good one. One of those "I can't seem to put it down" romance novels. Just one day into reading this book, I was honestly impressed. Most books are usually predictable. This one, in my opinion, wasn't.

I was a huge bookworm growing up. There was never a moment when I didn't have a book in my hand and reading away. I started reading romance novels in my early teen's and instantly fell in love with the romance genre. I was into them for the love stories and how the characters in them fell in love. It was never about the hot and steamy sex chapters.

Rachelle had me wanting to read more whenever I completed a chapter. I had to put my Kindle down a few times while reading it to do life stuff, but it was always worth coming back to. It never once disappointed me.

I love that Rachelle put two people in the story who would be unlikely to ever fall in love but ended up doing so despite both of their pasts and even their current situations. Most men would never take on the role of Daddy if the child isn't their own. However, there are men like Tyler who would. This book hits close to home in that aspect for me. My husband took in my daughter and considers her his own flesh and blood. Like Kelly, I made sure he accepted the entire package first and sure enough, he did.

All of us as human beings have baggage. That is a known fact. Some people choose to think they are perfect and they don't have anything wrong with them. In the book, Tyler and Kelly learned to accept each other for who they were, past and present. Flaws and all. You don't find too many people like that. This is where the book also hit close to home again for me. I had baggage and a lot of it prior to getting with my husband. It was my husband who helped me overcome it and push on with my life.

It was also pretty awesome that everything happened to take place around the holiday season. Although I didn't fall in love around Christmas time, it sure is nice to be with the ones who truly do love you. It was great that Bree and Kelly both got what they wished for in the end.

Rachelle's book is heartwarming yet sexy. It will keep the readers coming back for more. I look forward to checking out other novels she has written.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
