Review: I can’t remember if I’ve ever read an A.L. Jackson novel before. I am sure I have but I read so much that sometimes I tend to forget books until I start reading them and then I’m all like “Ooooohhhh, now I remember” I can’t say I had that happen during this particular book, as I know I’d never read it, however, the author’s writing felt so familiar to me as I devoured this cute AF love story. So, Kale is a hot doctor…hot pediatric doctor *swoon* who doesn’t want a serious relationship so he can take care of the babies. Love him already don’t you. He is the stuff wet dreams are made of and Hope knows it too. Hope is our cupcake baking heroine who manages to steal Kale’s heart. Petite, cute and a mom, she is a ball of awesome sauce and a joy to read. The story is filled with a bunch of cuteness, via Hope’s son, Evan and Kale’s goddaughter Frankie Leigh. There’s also some good drama because what romance novel can survive without it. I live for drama…well drama in books and on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, NOT in my life. I’ll take that drama-free thank you very much. Anyway, I was left feeling a little out of sorts once the dust cleared because I needed Hope and Kale to stick it to her no good baby daddy, the bastard. Overall, this was a very good read. I’m gonna give it 4 solid stars and I plan to read more by A.L. Jackson that I apparently have on my Kindle but somehow managed to not dig into.
Blurb: Dr. Kale Bryant is gorgeous, compelling, and married to his job. The only thing he has time for are one-night stands and short-lived flings.
Until the first time he sees Harley Hope Masterson sitting across the room. He wants her in a way he hasn’t wanted anyone.
Harley Hope doesn’t have time for another complication – one arrogantly beautiful doctor included.
When he begins to pursue her, her walls begin to crumble.
One touch is fire.
One kiss, and they’re spinning out of control.
But taking this single-mom won’t come without consequences. Especially when he finds out he’s her son’s doctor.
Now Kale must decide if loving her is worth risking it all.
But sometimes even hope needs a hero . . .
