This is what I have come to expect from Ms Bretton, a sweet romance with loads of family drama to sort out. I generally enjoyed the story behind this sweet romance. There are many levels to delve into.
This is more of a mature romance, not my typical fav. I like things with more action all around. Still a sweet single mom and a smexy fire-fighter single dad is a treat. There is much story here, so many wonderful supporting characters. While it is a romance there is a great deal of fiction in the story as well. It takes you on a slow ride through their lives.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by LC Kane, who is great. I love her sweet even tone, it really fits the read. Great pace keeps the story moving along. I also like that she did not try to go too deep for the men. I enjoyed her energy throughout and the emotion she was able to convey. The only negative is that it gets breathy at times, I am not a fan of hearing the narrator take large breaths, but that is more of an editing thing. I will be looking for more of her work!
Overall this was a sweet book that kept me entertained at work. I was not over the moon in love with it, but that had more to do with my mood than the storytelling. For fans of inter-generational stories, and mature couples in romance, this will be a great read. The story continues in the second book of the series, following the same leads.
