With a decision to make, is it possible for two lost loves to find their way back to each other or are there too many curves in the road?

Favorite Quotes:

 

Damn, why did this woman make me so nervous? In high school, I’d been such a smooth talker. It was how I ended up being a teenage dad.

 

Derrick made the sky bluer, chocolate taste sweeter, and the sun shine brighter, at least it seemed that way with him in my life.

 

Damn, girl, I don’t usually run unless I’m being chased by a serial killer, so you should feel honored, because seriously, that never happens.

 

Cameron made a “pshh” sound. “No bumping? Derrick, baby, that is not a CamWow secret… you have to be able to wow the Cam with your secrets, and I’m not feeling the wow. I feel very disappointed… But yes, I’ll deliver your package.” He snickered for a moment and said, “Although I’m sure she’d rather you give a different package in person.”

 

Hormones messed with a woman during and after pregnancy. Come to think of it, hormones messed a woman up at any time, but I was too smart a guy to say it out loud.

 

 

My Review:

 

I am vastly enjoying this refreshingly sweet and pleasant series packed with a diverse, quirky, highly amusing, and endearing cast of characters. The books overlapped pleasantly yet each could stand-alone but are so appealing I want to read them all.   I admired and adored this sweet and deserving couple; they were gentle and patient with each other while also supporting everyone else. Written from a dual POV, the storyline was engaging, well-paced, and easy to follow.   Ms. McClung’s writing was well-balanced with emotive and heart-squeezing drama, amusing smirks, and steamy delights.
