{ review } .

This story had a ton of potential for me, but I had a hard time getting past much of the dialogue -- many of Liam and Frederick's earlier conversations were almost... pretentious. It was no wonder Vince separated himself from his family, asking for them to not be notified in the event of his and his wife's deaths a year after the custody of their children was settled and with his sister-in-law. It was quite apparent that the better caregiver would be Whitney.

The ins and outs of Whit and Liam's relationship was an enjoyable one to read. I liked the interaction with the kids and felt that Brayden's characterization was very age appropriate, but at times felt that Ally's seven was more of a late seven if not mid- to late-eight years. Aside from the semi-appropriate grieving process for the children, I felt that Whitney's own grieving had been stunted -- she didn't have the proper time to mourn the loss of her sister before being thrown into caretaker role, and I don't know that it was properly executed in the story, either.

My favorite part of the book was the end -- I know that sounds snarky but honestly, I'm an epilogue gal and while the book simply went along the paces for me throughout the chapters, I loved the normalcy and sense of family that finally, fully occurred with Whit, Liam, Frederick, and the children.

The prologue was gripping and the epilogue was a sweet cherry to top the cake; it was just points in the middle that while a good contemporary, didn't get past 'good' for me.
