I received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Ahh, I love books like this! If I could sum this book up in one sentence it would be: This book was an adorably clean romance that gave me lots of laughs. I am kind of a sucker for Pride & Prejudice remakes, so I usually venture into adult fiction when I find one. And I especially loved this one, because it was well-written and wasn’t full of sex.
The cover is beyond adorable and the synopsis was pretty endearing, so I think I would have been interested even if it wasn’t a P&P retelling. However, that just sealed the deal for me.
So the story is this: Emma is helping her brother take care of her nieces after his wife is killed. She gives up a dream job and moves to Colorado Springs. It’s very Raising Helen. So, she gives up her life and has to deal with the fact that she is now ‘mom’ to two little girls. She doesn’t like relying on anyone, but now that the circumstances have changed dramatically, her pride hinges on the lives of more than just her.
Enter Kevin, the swoon worthy neighbor. Kevin seemed like an ass in the beginning, but he wasn’t. He was rather adorable and Kevin + Emma just made my heart flutter. They were an amazing, well-rounded couple, that I really enjoyed reading.
The characters in this book were so well executed. Even the minor characters had a personality that jumped off the page — you won’t get flat anything in this book. The writing was tight and well done, and it made the book fly by. The pacing was also well done and I never got bogged down.
Overall, I just can’t wait to see where this series goes from here.
