They meet on a beach. . . .
Abby Davis isn’t wearing a skimpy bikini or sipping umbrella drinks, not when she’s busy chasing around four little ones. And Matt McKinney isn’t looking for fun—he’s a Navy SEAL, a grown man with a long list of missions . . . and fallen brothers.
They only have a week. . . .
Abby has brought her children to this beach to start over, to give them the enjoyable memories they deserve. Matt’s been sidelined by a combat injury, and haunted by the best friend he lost and the promise he made: to remain a SEAL—focused and dedicated. This leaves no time for what he’s always wanted: a family.
But a week is all it takes. . . .
Matt opens her heart while Abby soothes his soul. And though they plan to say good-bye when the week is over, something magical happens on that beach, something neither can forget. Something utterly, completely worth falling for.
I am a sucker for books with single parents who are struggling but yet making their children their top priority. Abby Davis was one of those heroines who loved her four little children even though it was a challenge for her.
On a family vacation, one of the kids kicked a ball far, where military man Matt McKinney kindly retrieved the ball. This began a journey which would end up with a bond of friendship, affection and finally trust.
It was angsty, it was sweet, it was endearing and it made me so happy in the end. Matt is those special kind of heroes, the ones that remind me that the world does have good guys. He found Abby attractive on the beach, and the fact that she had four kids didn’t intimidate him. He gave each kid attention, and he tried his best to keep promises to little children.
Anyone who spends time with little ones know when you say you will do something, you better do it!
It was refreshing that Matt worked hard to keep his promise to his military buddy as well as trying to balance the new additions to his world. I respected his loyalty, hard working nature and capacity to love. I can’t even say who made this book so good for me because everything worked here. It just touched my heart and the theme of family resonated with my soul.
I can’t wait to try book 2.
