Christian Nelson readily agreed when his friend asked him to give his sister and her kids a tour of the fire station Even though Christian isn t a hometown native he knew her story and was happy to help He, however, didn t know that with one look at her his life would forever be changed All of a sudden his beliefs that love em and leave em is the only way to go may not be the great idea he thought it was This book brought tears to my eyesthan once I absolutely loved Christian and how he stepped right up and included the kids in his courting of Jane I loved how Jane was a good mom and continued to be the best mom she could be even when she was dealing with a bratty pre teen, energetic toddlers and her own personal demons Kudos to Ms Erickson for making the reading audience feel like they shared this journey with the Clark family.A special thanks to NetGalley.com for the loan of this book in exchange for my honest review.You can also find this review on
