Family by Design

Rena's getting tired of her seemingly never ending "pleasant" dates. She's not sure how she ended up in her 30's and still single. Her only consolation is that her best friend, Tucker, is still searching for the right person too. Rena finds herself comparing the current guy she's dating to Tucker and knows that he could never measure up to him. Tucker is going through some life changes himself, his brother and sister-in-law have just been killed in a car accident, leaving him in charge of his very young niece and nephew. The problem being that child protective services don't feel that he's an adequate guardian being unmarried and in the Marine reserves. Knowing that the only way he will get to care for his family is to get married, he decides to ask Rena to marry him and right away! He knows that both of them are sick of searching for the right person and reasons that they love each other enough for now. Rena is thrown for a loop, but decides to go for it anyway. But neither of them can imagine the challenges that will come into their life because of their crazy decision. I loved this book. I loved Rena, her character was such a strong, wonderful woman. I loved Tucker, I loved their story and how much they both grew throughout all of it. This book sucked me in from the very first page, and I had a really hard time putting it down when I needed to do other things!
