Thirteen years ago, Evie’s firefighter husband was killed in the line of duty, leaving her to raise their young son, Cody, alone. Now, Cody is marrying the love of his life, and as he packs up his belongings, the house feels as empty as Evie’s heart. But for all her planning and mad organizational skills, Evie could never have anticipated the dramatic shift her life is about to make.
Tattooed, rough-around-the-edges Jack raises quite a few eyebrows in the tight-knit community of Banister Falls. Where Evie’s life is stream-lined, Jack’s approach to living is moment by moment. But as Evie gets drawn into Jack’s world—a world that isn’t as safe or predictable as the one she’s worked so hard to create—he challenges her to open her eyes to the problems outside the walls of the church.
Jack doesn’t make Evie feel comfortable, but he definitely makes her feel something. Something she hasn’t felt since Max passed away—or, maybe ever. Because even though Jack isn’t anything like her late husband, he just might be everything she needs.
Jack, Evie, romance, kids and more helped to make this book a great book that grabbed my attention throughout the whole book. I was reading this book every chance I got! I loved the concept of Jack and how he had an open house and helped everyone in the department building. He just had a great concept around him and I felt like that was the heart of the book. I felt for all the characters when they went through all the twists and turns in this book. Evie and Jack had such great chemistry and make me want to continue reading the book. Jack’s niece was such a doll! She was so cute and was a great addition. Overall, this book was really good and I would recommend it to anyone. I give this a 4 out of 5 stars. I received this book from Book Look Bloggers in exchange for my honest review.
