I had life all figured out.
Married with a baby on the way I stupidly believed that things were perfect.
But then the good guy I fell in love with turned out to not be as good as I thought.
I was left alone to pick up the pieces of my life and provide for my daughter.
And then I met him.
The bad boy that just might not be so bad.
Three years after her husband walked out on her Arden James is struggling to make ends meet as a single mom. Despite it all, she knows she’s better off with her ex out of the picture, and so is her daughter.
Josh Hayes—player, jokester, and very naughty boy—is the guitar player for the band Willow Creek. He’s used to living the fast life, but suddenly it doesn’t appeal to him anymore, and he has his sights set on the fiery Arden.
Despite their undeniable chemistry, Arden isn’t sure she wants to invite a man into her life that has never been in a committed relationship before. But Hayes is determined to prove to her that there’s more to him than meets the eye. He just needs Arden to take a chance.
Okay now I loved this book almost the most in the Willow Creek series!!! I absolutely loved these two characters in this series. Hayes was like a kid and he made me laugh. Trust me I don’t want to say goodbye to these character. This series became one of my favourite series real quickly. What I loved about this book is because it wasn’t just focused on the romance but actually the development of relationship but not only between Hayes and Arden but actually between Hayes, Arden and Mia.
As you all know Hayes was always a player, but he does not like that life so much anymore. He would like to settle down just like the rest of his band mates. Hayes and Arden met In Your Heart and I can tell you that he was awe struck with Arden and Mia the moment he saw them and all he ever wanted was for Arden to take a chance on him…. But she was so much more afraid to take a chance not because of who Hayes is but because of her past. She didn’t have the best relationship in the past and she was afraid to trust men again. Hayes was the funniest guy in the band well he is in competition with Maddox. Lol they both act like children and always kept s grin on my face. Whereas Mathias was the over protective and broody one and Ezra is laid back one. Trust me both Maddox and Hayes are both a handful. Hayes has a desire to have a family and he loves Mia, someone who isn’t his even his real daughter. He is a total gentlemen to Arden and Mia and I can tell you one thing he is amazing with Mia.
Hayes is just so wonderful with both them and so honest. He made a person fall in love with him since the beginning. Especially the way he treated Mia like she is his own. He even said so to the paparazzi whenever she was with him. I can tell you Mia is cuteness over load. She is just so adorable and sweet and so cutie. I can tell you she is a smart one for a three year old. Arden was a spitfire. She is extremely wonderful mother even when Mia tests Arden’s patience. I admire her so much, how she raised Mia all by herself. Her witty banter with Hayes was so endearing and I was so glad they found each other.
I am really sad that this book series had to end. These characters really grew on me on this short time and it pains me to say goodbye to them. I know I will miss these characters. I hope there would be some novellas about them, it would be so nice to read them with their children.
