This was a very quick read, and my first by author Samantha Lind.

This follows the story of Tessa, who lost her husband five years earlier, and Jake, who is still adjusting to life as a civilian again. The two of them instantly feel the attraction to the other and we get to watch them grow closer as friends and a couple.

The pacing of this book was rather quick and I was able to read through the entire book in an afternoon. The characters were so relatable to the reader and the whole time you’re rooting for happy endings for the whole bunch. I’m not a big believer in love at first sight on reality, but I love to read about it in my books. The personalities of Jake and Tessa mesh so well that you can’t help believe they were made for each other; and then throw in Ty as well? Such a perfect family unit. The author included a look at their future so you can see how well their lives together went. All in all it was a good read and I recommend to anyone who loves a sappy happily ever after.

Samantha Lind is a contemporary romance author. Having spent the first 27 years of her life in Alaska, she now calls Iowa home where she lives with her husband and two sons. She enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, reading, watching hockey, and listening to country music. She can be contacted via Email or found on Facebook.
