Sunny Shelly’s Review: When Morning Comes, by A.M. Wilson

 

When Morning Comes by A. M. Wilson is now live!

 

 

There are worse things than getting knocked up by your best friend. Right?

Kiersten won’t make excuses for living her very best life. But being the life of the party has its downsides—like waking up naked next to her best friend.

Ever since Nathan’s wife died a few years ago, he’s avoided commitment. He went from living the family life to a one-and-done mentality. Until Kiersten breaks the news.

She’s pregnant with his baby.

She shoves him back in the friend zone. But there’s no return to normal when he’s already falling in love with her.

Convincing her that his affection runs deeper than their new reality isn’t an easy feat. Not when her lips are his addiction, and her touch is a brand. He’s determined to become more than friends.

Kiersten wants to play it safe, but Nathan is ready for risks. The problem is relationships can go south fast.

And they might learn the truth about what’s worse than getting knocked up by your best friend.

Losing them forever.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 3 Stars

I have a lot of mixed feelings about When Morning Comes. It is a great, slow burn best friends romance between Kiersten and widower Nathan and how their relationship changes when their sexcapades leads to an unexpected pregnancy. But I felt that there were too many holes in the overall story, and too much happened off-page that I was told happened. I want to see it happen on the page.

My biggest issue with this story is that I didn’t get a sense of Kiersten and Nathan’s friendship and history. The book opens with their drunken romp, and I felt like I had to make a lot of assumptions about their friendship, and how she supported him when his wife passed away. Maybe that all took place as a secondary story in the first Arrow Creek book? I don’t know; I didn’t read it. But for this being a standalone, I wish certain things would have been spelled out and detailed.

There is a lot of growth on Nathan’s part as he comes to terms with his grief over losing his wife and his growing feelings for Kiersten. But it was just like, all of a sudden, he’s gone from seeing her as his best friend to being in love. When did that happen? I would have loved to have gotten some glimpses of him in his therapy sessions as he tried to reconcile feeling like he was betraying his late wife.

Those reasons are what made this a 3-Star read for me rather than a 4-Star. But the bones of this story are really good, and I enjoyed the friends-to-lovers turn of events between Kiersten and Nathan, and how they traverse the road of planning to be co-parents to finding a HEA.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
