Well, L. Mertz just continues to amaze me- what else can I say? Brayden and Annie's story is so sweet, yet hot at the same time. This young couple, both who having overcome tragic circumstances in life, finally get a second chance when they are set up on a blind date. Now, where most stories would fall apart after that initial date- because let's face it, blind dates are the worst, theirs only blossomed. They continued to keep in touch, when a terrible occurrence in Annie's professional life forces them to become even closer. It really is a boy meets girl kind of story, with the addition of a rambunctious four year old, and a meddlesome, yet loving mother. This one is a novella, so of course, their story is fast paced- but still spans a one year time period. You go through it all with them, the good and the bad. There are going to be times that you shake your head in frustration at Brayden (after all, he is a man), and times when you want to push Annie to be bolder and shake some sense into him. But all in all, it's a fantastic story of second chance love, and new beginnings. 4 stars to L. Mertz on this great one!!
