~Review~I received this book and as arc for an honest review.
This book is a rollercoaster of emotions. It starts with Emma and her friends going on spring break. A traumatic event rips Emma’s life apart and she has now been throw with a responsibility of raising her best friend’s daughter with the help of her best friends brother. It shows the ups and downs the love and hate between them both, and the sadness of a child going through a tragic loss.
This is your typical love romance novel, but still very well written. I start reading this book going from laughing to crying to smiling again. I would classify this book as a brain candy, it’s an easy read, and for the sexy scenes it leave a lot to the reader’s imagination so if you don’t like graphic sex scenes, I would recommend this book for you!!
This book sucks you in and won’t let you go till read the last word. I can’t wait to read more of her books, and see how all the other characters come to life. This is a must read for anyone who loves a good romance book that doesn’t involve a lot of thinking, just a good old romance that makes you smile laugh cry and yell!!
Over all I would give this book a 4 out of 5
