My review: I got sucked in by this book and I didn't want to put it down! This book has it all, really great characters dealing with situations that feel real. The plot is awesome. The ending is amazing too. And don't you just love the cover? I know I do! I loved Ashlyn in this book, I loved how she was trying to put her life back together after everything that had happened to her. I loved that she wanted to be the best she could be for her adorable and precocious daughter Katie. I loved that pretty much everything she was doing was for Katie. I loved her family, they were all great, especially her sister Megan. I really liked Ryan too, his character is probably my favorite romantic hero that I've read. There's also a really annoying girl in this one that you will love to hate, I did! If you love LDS Romance make sure to pick up this great book!
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
