Book Summary:

When Corrie Windsor’s roommate dies in a car accident, she leaves behind her four-year-old daughter, Ella. Corrie loves the little girl and hopes to adopt her, but instead, she’ll have to stand by while Ella’s uncle steps in to take custody. If things aren’t awkward enough, there’s a chemistry between them that neither wants to acknowledge.

Preston Ford can’t imagine instant parenthood, especially considering he just chickened out of proposing to his girlfriend. However, once he meets Ella, there’s no other choice. The time he spends with her and Corrie solidifies an alliance between the three of them, a plan to give Ella the stability she needs. But reality can sometimes turn the best of plans upside down.

With more than one heart hanging in the balance, how long can their platonic teamwork really last? Romance has never been this complicated.

I loved this one. It’s a fairly quick read., at 156 pages it is longer than a novella but still short enough to get read in a day or two (at least for me). The characters were well developed and lovable. And while somewhat predictable there was also originality to this one.

This is the first book in a series but they will likely be companion novels as this stands alone. I’m looking forward to Rachel’s next book and will most definitely read it!

Rating: 5 Stars – I loved it!
