This is my first read by this author but it will not be the last. I found myself very quickly charmed by this book. Kate and Rye were both complex and compelling characters. These two each had some very deep emotional scars and plenty of baggage that weighs heavily on them and on their blossoming relationship. My heart actually hurt for the painful histories that these two had. The chemistry and sparks that this couple generated just sizzled but there was also a beautiful, sweet and poignant side to their relationship that melted my heart. I thought that these characters came across as genuine and extremely realistic do to their, flaws, fears and the mistakes they made. I cannot stress how much I simply adored Ike, Rye's son. He was a total scene stealer and maybe somewhere down the road he could get his own book once he grows up. Heartache, drama, angst and powerful emotions fill this captivating tale of romantic and familial love.

Thoroughly Enjoyable Read Gosh, a myriad emotions were wrought from me after reading Ms. Padgett's latest novel. It just brought to mind how we never truly know what one person is going through or what causes them to act in certain ways. Once we delve a little deeper into a person's situation or how they are acting, it is amazing to find out what people are really going through or thinking. The addage of don't judge a book by it's cover is so true for this angst-filled book. Good story, characterizations and overall enjoyable read. I voluntarily received an advance review copy of this novel via Booksprout and I am leaving an honest and unbiased review. I have no affiliation to this author.

There's nothing like a rockstar, single dad book. Rye comes off harsh, but he's doing all he can to make sure his son has all he needs without apologies. He's a terrific father who puts his son first before all else. I love the bond that Rye's son Ike has with Kate. Its sweet, trusting, and nurturing. She loves him with an open heart and open arms. The bond between Kate and Rye is magnetic and electric, but past baggage gets in the way, and I think there is unintended self-sabotage at times. But the main theme in this book is forgiveness: in self, in each other, and in those that love them.
