It’s funny how one night can change everything.
Since my parents died, I refuse to be another statistic. I’ve had to make sacrifices – especially when it comes to my social life. I’m convinced it’s worth it and I’ll have plenty of time to focus on me… later.
Then Sydney walks into my life and knocks my world off kilter.
She’s strong, sexy, independent and possibly more than I can handle. She’s everything I’ve ever wanted, but my reality and the secret I’m harboring, might have her running in the other direction.
Will my perfectly laid out plans go up in flames if I take a chance on her?
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
Vince is a fantastic good-guy-gets-the-girl story!
Poor Vince is carrying so much on his shoulders. He is determined to be the support for his sister Vanessa and niece, and is so focused on getting through college. But his focus is shifted when he meets a sassy spitfire bartender named Sydney.
Their rapport is easy from the get-go, and they easily fall into a comfortable relationship that kind of catches them both off-guard. Vince is super sweet and such a romantic… the dates he plans are spectacular! There are a few times when a lack of communication causes some tension between Sydney and Vince, like when she assumes Julia is his kid not knowing she’s his niece, but these two talk it out and their relationship is stronger for it in the end. And finally, Vince has someone he can depend on instead of being the one to carry the load for another person all the time.
Sydney is Abby’s roommate from Drew, so it was nice to see those two again and see how his proposal goes down! I loved that HEA with Vince and Sydney, and the tease we got for Vanessa’s story. I am really looking forward to that book, and seeing how little Julia steals her future father’s heart!
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
