Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Once upon a time, there was this pampered rich girl who was kind of full of herself. She really only cared about appearances and hiding all her dark, ugly secrets under the guise of an opinionated snob. But then Eva Mercer got pregnant, shot by a psycho, and kicked out of the only home she knew. Now she’s broke, unemployed, and has to start anew with a newborn to raise. But how?

On the other side of town, sexy, tattooed orphan, Patrick Ryan, can’t get a break. He’s out on parole for defending the last damsel in distress while trying to help her support her child, but all he wants is to find his one true love. He knows this woman by scent, smile, and laugh, but he’s never actually met her. He doesn’t even know her name. He just knows she’s the key to fixing everything.

One kind of hero can save you from physical harm. Another can rescue you from a different kind of doom. To reach their dreams, Eva and Pick can save each other. But first, they must open their hearts and learn how to trust.

My Review:
Here are 2 people that have had absolutely terrible childhoods. 1 was in foster care from birth and the other came from a rich family but was molested through her childhood and decided to keep that secret to herself. When circumstances put a child in each of their lives the risks of them not being a good parent are high but these 2 decide to overcome their horrific past and do everything in their power to be the best parents. The author also shows us the ugly side is well. 1 of the children’s mother is an addict and her addiction and self-centeredness ruled her lie and she only saw the child as a burden and treated him as such. But this is all too real in the world today and the author held absolutely nothing back in showing us how the child suffers the most I a situation like that.

Pick and Eva were amazing characters to read and I was rooting for them to beat fate and get there happily ever after. Their journey from where they started fighting to providing for their children was heartbreaking yet also very fulfilling when they overcome the odds. Fans of this series will love that all the characters from the previous books are back in this one even with some overlapping of scenes we saw in the previous books. Also the ending had me clapping and jumping up and down at how this amazing author closed them.

My Rating:
