    375 starsI liked the way it was written and the characters are going to be memorable for sure The story would make an excellent Hallmark movie and definitely provides plenty of feel good uiet love Bernadette's character arc in particular is engagingfrom pampered almost royal bride to a desperate woman running from the corruption she sees with an instinctive horror It instantly raises the uestion—how'd she manage not to lose the conscience these people lack so much? Things get even interesting when her classic Rolls breaks down in the small town where her mostly forgotten aunt lives the aunt who also had a conscience and ran away from the life of privilege and power and corruption a generation ago The garage owner Liam is glad to help her outthis disheveled desperate lost bride But pretty uickly the tables turn and she's the one helping Liam with his new son his estranged wife's legacy to him at her death—the darling two year old Ike product of the wife's affairI will say that some of the themes could be a bit adult cheating spouses illegitimate children but in the end the book is clean except for one instance of a minor swear Which was totally dispensable butoh well It's evident that Liam and Bernadette have a pure relationship though there are some pretty good kisses I especially liked that it wasn't suishy sensual Yes he's handsome and she's pretty but they aren't ogling each other in gross ways if you get my drift Thanks to NetGalley for a review copy

    This is a really well written book and I enjoyed itHowever it is about how Republican Presidential candidates can’t have any scandal whatsoever in their backgrounds and as there’s a thrice married – Republican – pussy grabber currently in the White House the whole thing is totally laughableFull review soon

    Bernadette Morgan an heiress to a NY scion with political ambitions for his family meets a car mechanic Liam Wilson when her Rolls Royce breaks down shortly after she rumbles into the little town where her aunt lives Thus begins a series of uestions the reader is asked to find answers to beginning with why Bernie has left her fiance at the altar you can guess after what she sees he's doing with the woman he told her was an old flame now burned out not so much I guess As if that wasn't enough Liam is now caring for the little boy his late wife gave birth to after having an affair with Bernie's uncle another sleezeball politician Liam is coming to love the boy and while he's his official guardian he fears that the biological father may take the boy away if only to prevent his presence from becoming known to his continuentsBut the real meat of this story is the examination of relationships specifically the differences between foster care adoption and biological linkages Liam was a foster kid and he knows and felt the difference between being a thrown away kid and one who might have been adopted Bernie thinks she was born into that wealth that has always surrounded her until she discovers that she was in fact torn from her birth mother and adopted by that couple she has always thought were her parents Both Liam and Bernie want to protect little Ike from what Liam endured But how can Bernadette who was the reason Ike's now threatened protect him and those unexpected feelings that she now has for Liam and he for her?This book kept me up all night with both the uestions it raised the answers it ultimately provided and the sensitivity with which it dealt with things so very close to the current political situation many of us are now watching unfold A great story

    What a solid story Liam's and Bernie's romance warmed my heart The author allowed their love to build and it felt realistic even though it was a short amount of time Things started off rocky for Bernie but she came into her own So many themes resonate in this read family forgiveness are two It looks at the uestion of family and shows how love can stretch that parameter The backstories and other characters added conflict and depth to the tale I understood the couple's struggle and rooted for them on their path to happy ever afterThere were some great lines in this readHe was man enough to love a woman with his whole heart but he was also man enough to let her go and to deal with the pain on his ownlife doesn't give you many chances to follow your heart and the rest of your life is an awfully long time to go without the man you love

    I wish I could have loved this book but I gave up a few pages in the first chapter because mainly I hate triangles For me I like my fictional romances to have Hero Heroine be the only loves I loath books in which Hero or Heroine is obsessed with an ex In this book it's Liam that I could not get on board His wife Lianne had an affair with Bernadette's cousin and had a baby boy They were separated for three years and never got a divorce so Liam ends up inheriting his wife's kid For me that did it The author lost me and I could not read any further I didn't mind Bernadette's history with her e because she as clearly never in love with him and wasn't heartbroken The same cannot be said with hero therefore Hh's romance if you can call it that was not believable
