I always believed in fairy tales. So much so that I made a career out of them. As a wedding planner, I made it my goal to perfect everyone else's happily-ever-after. I even believed in finding mine once, too, until one man left me alone and pregnant –crushing my dreams, and leaving me jaded.
I was living every man’s dream; I had the career I’d always wanted, my soulmate in my corner, an adorable daughter, and a son on the way. Everything was perfect until it wasn't. A series of unforeseen events tragically altered my path. In the blink of an eye, I was left a widower and a single father of two.
I wasn't seeking love again, but she found me. Now I just needed to break down her walls and help her fall.

M.C. has completely floored me with her latest book. I couldn't put it down, I had to know what was going to happen with two main characters and their explosive chemistry. And she definitely didn't disappoint, she wrote a book with passion, loads of silly banter, and a topic you rarely see in the reading world..... both main characters are raising kids on their own for completely different reasons.
Blake is recently widowed dad of a young daughter and a newborn son. He is a journalist by day and super dad at night. He has a lot of support from his parents and his best friend, Rich, and his wife, Brooke. He is trying to live his life and raise two kids, but he soon realizes he needs to open up his heart again.
Cassidy is a single mom with dreams of one day getting her fairytale ending. Her dreams were crushed when she told her now ex-boyfriend, that she was pregnant. She decides to raise the baby on her own. She worked her way up to be one of the best wedding planners.
Cassidy is Brooke's maid of honor and has heard rumors about Rich's best man and friend, Blake. She knows the horrible tragedy he has gone through, but when she sees him for the first time at the wedding, she forgets about it temporarily. Blake is extremely blown away by Cassidy and can literally feel his heart beat again for the first time since his wife died. They start off slow, with meeting and text messages, all while hiding it from their friends. Eventually their chemistry brings it to the next level and the kids are blended into their dates.
Can their relationship survive long distance and the both of them having kids prior to getting together? Will Blake ask Cassidy to move near him or will he make the jump himself? What happens when their friends find out?
This book was incredible! I absolutely loved everything about it, my favorite was Blake and Cassidy's silly banter. I highly recommend this book because it a truly heartfelt story.
