***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Meg Michaels, a bookstore owner, has already walked away from two cheating exes. She’s learned her lesson and has her mind set on success—until she gets knocked up. Embarrassed and unwilling to discuss her situation with friends and family, she wears layers to hide the pregnancy.
When Meg gets sick at a party, she’s mortified. Even worse, Theo Taylor, the guest of honor, discovers her secret. Theo, an Army medic wounded in the war, agrees not to reveal her condition, and the two forge a bond of friendship that blossoms into love.
Theo is soon filling all of Meg’s late-night cravings—and not just the pregnancy-induced ones. But can their love overcome all the obstacles that stand between them and creating a happy family?
Theo and Meg are the main characters and the author tells their story as they stumbled through the process of falling in love after all of the emotional upheaval and pain of dealing with abandonment issues, trust issues, a devastating and life altering injury, as well as an unplanned pregnancy and the drama of living their lives in a small town where everyone really knows your name and all of your personal business. I loved Meg and Theo as well as Steve and Chelsea and would love to know more about Ellie and Jake’s baby (can we hope for another book about these characters?). The author makes the characters feel like they are friends and family and you really get to know them all throughout the book. I feel like I could call any of the characters in the book my friends once the story ends, because the reader feels like they know them on a personal level.
The one dull spot in this book is the ending. I feel like the author forgot to tie up a few of the loose ends with some of the characters and perhaps this was done on purpose so that the reader is ready for another book…but it wasn’t a cliffhanger, just some unanswered questions that I wish the author would have finished out. Add this book to your TBR list and make sure you give yourself plenty of time to read it as you won’t want to put it down once you start. It is an amazing journey and one that you don’t want to miss out on!! Enjoy~
