Good morning everyone!! Hope you're all having a fantastic Thursday...it's all downhill from here!! Then we can slide right into the weekend and maybe, if we're lucky, into a good book!
Speaking of...I was on facebook the other day and came across and author who wanted her Love Inspired book reviewed. O
f course I couldn't let her down! Of course I couldn't let a Love Inspired book go!...so I decided to review it. She sent it to me last night and I didn't stop reading until I was finished with the book...
*About the Author*
Lee Tobin McClain read in the third grade and has been an incurable romantic ever since. When she’s not writing emotional, faith-infused love stories with happy endings, she’s probably driving around a carload of snarky teen girls, playing with her rescue dog and cat, or teaching aspiring writers in Seton Hill University’s MFA program. She is probably not cleaning her house.
Angelica Camden does NOT want to do this. To ask the man she loved, and lef,t without warning 7 years ago, for a job as his assistant...but it wasn't about her. It was about making her 6 year old little boy happy and if he wanted her to work at the kennel, she'd do everything in her power to make his dreams and requests come true. Though her grandfather is against the idea, Angelica gets the job as Troy Hinton's newest assistant. She thinks it'll work...until a crazy suggestion makes her head and her heart spin. Can they ever trust one another again? Will her little boy get the daddy he deserves?
Troy Hinton can't believe he gave the job of assistant to his former fiance...the same fiance that ran off and apparently cheated on him. Trying to get over the attraction between them, and get around with a broken leg, he's more confused then ever. Then he goes and asks her to marry him! Can he be the father that Xavier needs? Can he ever trust the woman that left him with no explanation?
*What I liked*
I really loved "Zavey Davey" as Angelica affectionately called little Xavier. I also loved that Lee focused on the "rough, tough, no one wants them" dogs to be the focus of Troy's rescue. It shows people, and animals, aren't always as they seem..and neither are situations.
*What I didn't like*
Troy jumped to a lot of conclusions throughout the book. I don't know what I would do in his place but at times it was aggravating. In the end though, the book was really good and I wouldn't have changed anything. If you're looking for a romance, I should tell you that there was only one kiss throughout the book. So you know. ;)
My rating for Engaged to the Single Mom is...
4 1/2 stars!!
*My overall opinion*
Engaged to the Single Mom by Lee Tobin Mcclaire is a heart wrenching, sweet story on trust, hope, and second chances. Worth it's 4 1/2 stars!
