Excerpt:I was holding my breath. I wasn’t even sure why, but it was something about the way Mack was looking at me. And the tension in his body—the taut muscles in his neck. The grip of his fingers on the edge of the counter. The set of his jaw. It gave the impression of restraint. Like he was holding himself back. Something unfamiliar hummed in the air between us. I could feel it—he wanted me the way I wanted him. No wonder I couldn’t breathe. Then he cleared his throat and turned away from me, cutting off the current. “Sure. Everybody needs to make mistakes now and then.” I’d forgotten I’d even asked the question. He turned the sink on, rinsed his dishes, and placed them in the dishwasher. I stood there staring at his muscular back, at the width of his shoulders, at the snug fit of his jeans on his butt. If I were his and he were mine, I’d go over and wrap my arms around his waist, press my cheek to his back. Then he’d turn around, winding his arms around me. He’d lower his lips to mine, and— “I should get you home,” he said, interrupting my fantasy. “Want to grab your coat?” “Sure.” But I didn’t really want to leave. I wanted to stay in this warm, chaotic house with him and the girls. Pretend I belonged here. Pretend I belonged to him.
Man I never wanted to punch someone in a book before, but Mack was really testing my what in the world were you thinking patience. I did love his character. He's a hard working single dad trying to give his girls everything possible without loosing his mind daily. Frannie is the one that keeps him sane when it comes to his kids. Neither has acted on their feelings until now. Its super sweet and I loved watching them fall in love. However men are idiots let's put it out there. And Mack will do something to ruin it all. But can Frannie survive and build on what she is becoming? Or will the hurt be to much? And what about the adorable kids who you fall in love with right away? Find out.
