I'll Know You by Heart

Stephanie Roberts seems to be trapped in an abusive marriage, but she knows that it has to be over the night that her husband comes home to beat her, and when their teenage son, Tyson, tries to stop the beating, he starts to beat Tyson. Stephanie and Tyson load up the other two girls, Maddie and Sarah and as much of their things as they can carry and head for Stephanie's mom's house. Trying to make life normal for her family, Stephanie gets an apartment and a job at a pediatrician's office. One day she answers the phone at work to find a man distressed about his daughter's broken arm, what she doesn't understand is how the man seems so familiar to her, even though she's never met him before. Jared Wakefield is a single father, his wife died just 6 weeks before, he's trying to adjust to caring for their daughter, Katie, without any help at all. Even though his wife wasn't a great wife or mother, she was at least there, and Katie misses that. Jared needs someone to help him watch Katie, and Stephanie seems to be just the person for the job. But will her abusive estranged husband leave her alone? 

This was a cute story, I can't say that it was my favorite, but it was a fun book to read once. I don't really love the abusive parts, but the romance part was good. I liked the characters and cared about what happened to them. I would read more books by Kimberly Job.
