I absolutely loved this book! It was raw and emotional and so realistic when it comes to take care of your younger siblings. It is a standalone so you can just jump into it!!!! This book had so much romance and the characters were multi dimensional and all of the characters felt so real. The storyline has so much emotion, love, hope, and so much more…..

There was a lot to follow in this book but it was such an easy read. I read this book in just one day which I loved. This book was so vivid that it felt like you were experiencing everything with them! This book is about a twnty three year old Maggie who is now a mother to a nine year old who is also her brother. It was so nice to read why Ash would call her mom instead of Maggie, it made my heart constrict.  I don’t know how Maggie could balance everything in her life with Ash, College and work but somehow she did it, and she did it wonderfully. the Last thing on her mind was romance but like always romance comes just out of the blue. She met this amazing swoon worthy guy at college but little did she know is that he is also Asher’s teacher at school.

Asher just radiates positivity  and hope and he is one amazing kid that you can’t help but love. He is one kid that loves hockey and his teacher who he helps in classes.

Luke has the weight of he siblings on his shoulders. He moved back into his parents house to protect his siblings from their abusive father. Luke wanted to become a teacher and help those who are being abused by their parents he wants to show the children that they are loved and safe at school. Luke attends the same college as Maggie to finishe his education. Both Maggie and Luke wants to be teachers and these two have more in common than they realize. Both has a dysfunctional family life….. Luke has his farther and Maggie has her wicked grandmother who wants custody over Ash.

The moment Luke sees Maggie is the moment he is drawn to her but he does not know why. He spend all his time trying to break down her defenses and telling himself that he is not good enough father, because he fears he will be like his farther.These two have so much baggage and issues but they are perfect for each other. They did have ups and downs but we all know they are meant to be, even Ash knew about it. Ash is so sweet he help Luke with Maggie and the ending was so amazing I loved Luke and Ash work together making a plan to break down Maggie’s defenses.

I would highly recommend this book to everyone. To make a person care what will happen to the characters in an book is an amazing job. All the emotions I felt in this book was so genuine and I was sorry that I reached the end of the book. This book was beautifully written. The author carefully described all the events and the characters were so easy to love and obviously some where easy to dislike. Do yourself a favor and read this book because you won’t regret it! Warning: Make sure you have a box of tissues with you!
