NOTE I did receive this for free, for review. I’m not paid for this review.
Now that that’s out of the way … on to the review.
I wasn’t a huge fan. I think part of it is how FAST Gideon “got over” his PTSD. Like, he found out that a painting he got from someone he knew that had been attached to his squad was worth money, he was okay.
Okay, that over-simplified it, but it did feel really fast. That’s a problem with romance novels, though. That happens A LOT.
First, I want to say that I got a copy as an ARC, but I wasn’t paid, and this book was actually on my “To Read” and I had to cancel my pre-order 😉
Now, on to the review:
You’d think, by the description, that it would be the “billionaire has kid, can’t handle kid, hires nanny,” but while, yes, that’s sort of what happens, Matt is actually almost a helicopter father and very protective.
Ariana (Ari as she prefers to be called) comes from a broken home, and ended up in the foster system. She lost contact with her brother, who went into the military when she was a child.
Matt helps her find her brother, and there are some heartbreaking stories to follow with that, and Ari helps Matt realize that he’s holding on too tight with his son.
It was a quick read, not because it was short, but because the story was so good!
