This book is about Eilish Cassidy (we met her in the Player and the Pixie), she is Sean Cassidy’s cousin, and a one night mistake with someone she thought was amazing who turned out to be a complete douche changed her entire life. Now years later, Eilish, a single mother with her son from US. Eilish after struggling but staying determined and strong for her son with the her the help of her cousin finished university while working three jobs is now coming back home. And it would be great, if not for the fact that her son’s father is there.
Bryan Leech, recovering alcoholic and perhaps a recovering ass as well is trying to get his act together. He has completely changed, no more drinking or partying he has become a homebody with his tea and reading in his robe. Seeing Eilish he is instantly attracted to her and feels a connection with her even though she seems to really indifferent to him.
Eilish is conflicted and doesn’t really know how to act or tell Bryan about *them* or that they have a son especially after seeing how much Bryan has changed.
“What would it feel like to be on the receiving end of being forgotten? She didn’t deserve to be forgotten. She deserved to be treasured. And I was going to do everything in my power to make up for what I’d done.”
While I fell in love with Eilish from the get go (how could I not??), my initial reaction to Bryan was just no but rest assured he won me and more importantly Eilish over. You get see them both grow and develop their relationship and see Bryan with his son! The book is cute, funny and I ended really liking Bryan and Eilish together.
The book has the trade mark Penny Reid and L.H. Cosway humour, chemistry and a very unique couple. A great addition to a fantastic series. It was also wonderful seeing the other couples/cast from the first two books of the series. I really enjoyed the new instalment and I hope we get more books from the duo together!
