Synopsis from Goodreads:
When injured police officer Sean McKittrick heads to his cottage, he’s planning on some much needed rest and recuperation. But the idyllic peace he expected to find is shattered by…children?
It’s not that Sean dislikes kids, he just isn’t interested in having any of his own. Or in settling down, for that matter. Ever. Unfortunately, the woman in charge of his young neighbors has an unsettling way of making him forget why.
Grace Daniels is attractive, single, and despite her brave face, overwhelmed by the responsibility of caring for three nieces and a nephew. When she helps Sean out of a jam, he feels obliged to return the favor, but he soon realizes there’s more to this cobbled-together little family than meets the eye. Grace is hiding something, a secret that piques Sean’s cop suspicions—and stirs his protective instincts.
As Sean digs for the truth, however, the line between professional curiosity and personal interest becomes increasingly blurred. A family might not be quite what he had in mind for his future, but he’s beginning to wonder if he can live without this one…or if he wants to.
What I Thought:
I read the novella set before this book recently so I wanted to dive into this one as soon as I could. I absolutely loved the first book, and I was excited to see this one with Seth as the main man.
I ended up reading the whole book in one day. I just didn’t want to put it down and I wanted to see if the two ended up together. I kind of guessed a little bit of what was going to happen at the end, but the build up for it was still so good and I actually didn’t mind at all. I couldn’t guess everything obviously and I really liked how everything wrapped up.
I really liked the characters too. Grace is taking care of her sister’s 4 kids! They’re pretty mature for their age so they help her out a lot, aside from the youngest but she’s just so adorable. Sean is in a cast and supposed to be resting, but he keeps getting involved with them and it just grows from there. I loved Grace and Sean, I kept really hoping they would explore their possible connection and end up together. I won’t say if they did or didn’t though. We also get to see Gwynn and Gareth and their kids again briefly, and I loved having them in the book.
I loved the first book, and now I love this one. This is a great romance series that I really think more people should be reading.
