Caught between the woman he’s coming to love and the only family he has left, Harry knows he has to follow his heart and with the help of the crazy, loving, meddling locals find a way to keep them both.

As y’all already know I am a huge Lexi Blake fan so I couldn’t wait to devour this book. As always Ms. Blake does not disappoint. The characters are all well written and easy to fall in love with. Seraphina (I love that name) is happy living in her little town. Sure things haven’t been perfect and she’s struggling a bit to find her place but she keeps trying. Her son could not be more adorable.
Harrison is just as easy to love although Celeste (his aunt) is a bit much. I do enjoy the way the story unfolds and Celeste becomes less of a hated character for me. I loved how Harrison accepted Celeste’s help but refused to give her complete control of his life. He’s a man who knows how to make his own decisions.
While Celeste doesn’t like Seraphina (Sera) we watch their history unfold and let me tell you there is plenty of drama. Harrison and Sera have a chemistry that is off the charts and he could care less about his aunt hating Sera. This one is full of family drama that will leave you breathless!
