Release Date: April 26th
Add to Goodreads:
“I’ll take them!”
That’s what I tell the social worker when my pre-k student and his baby brother need an emergency foster placement. I’ll do anything to keep the brothers from being split up. But my apartment’s flooded and there’s only one house I can take them to on such short notice…his.
Knox Daniels, my older brother’s best friend, offers his new place without hesitation. He’s not moving back to our tiny town until next month—that’s when all our hotshot firefighters are returning for their one and only chance to rebuild our fathers’ fallen, iconic crew.
It doesn’t matter that I’ve been silently in love with Knox since we were kids. It can’t matter that we pretend that reckless prom night kiss never happened. It won’t matter that my feelings for him could destroy his lifelong friendship with my brother and threaten the certification of their hotshot crew. Because I’ll be out of his house long before he gets back.
Except Knox just walked in…a month early. And the icing on this awkward cake? He’s gorgeous as always and I’m covered in baby puke. He takes one look at the boys and tells me we can make this work—
We can temporarily fake a relationship to keep them from being separated by the system.
Suddenly, everything matters.
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
Reason to Believe is perfection. I was hooked on Harper and Knox’s connection from the very first chapter — her senior prom when they shared a kiss that would soon lead to him pushing her away for seven years — and was there for all of it as these two found their way back together thanks to a fake marriage in order to be foster parents for her preschool student and his infant brother.
Despite the fact that they weren’t a legit couple, Knox and Harper were perfect together. I loved that it snuck up on Knox just how much he was actually in love with Harper and had been for all these years. With his troubled background, he didn’t think he was capable or worthy of being loved, but Harper was the one woman who had always had his heart. Harper has been in love with Knox since she was a teenager, but she had no idea that he had feelings for her as well and it was her brother’s fault that Knox never made a move on her.
In creating a safe place for Liam and Jamie, Knox and Harper along the way created a family unit for themselves. There are lots of obstacles along the way before these two find their happily ever after — Harper feeling like he’s only with her because of the kids, Knox feeling abandoned when Harper walks out after a fight — but these two were so worth fighting for!
Reason To Believe is the start of a new series in Legacy, Colorado, focusing on a group of hotshot firefighters. I definitely want to go back and read the previous two novellas that came before this book, and can’t wait to see what comes next with the rest of the group!
I received a complimentary copy and voluntarily left a review.
