I loved this book. I had not read book one in the series, and have to say that though I am definitely going to read that one as well, this was a stand alone. Mallory Sutton is a single mom of two adorable boys doing all she can to she can keep them happy, working two family businesses and trying to stay afloat. She has no interest in having a man in her life, especially since it would affect her boys. What she never expected was meeting a stoic, handsome cowboy who has parked his RV in their yard. Irish, just Irish, is that man. A man whose childhood was one no child should have. A childhood that has made him the unsmiling, quiet man he is today. One that doesn’t think he deserves love. But fate interferes and what was suppose to be a short term fling becomes more. Will they risk their hearts for something more, or will fear keep them apart? This was at times heartbreaking as well as a heartwarming story. The main and secondary characters were well developed and in the end all you’ll want to do is walk into the pages of the book and give Irish and Mallory a hug. I was entrusted a copy of this book by Netgalley and Harlequin. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
