Luke Anderson has everything a man could want. Fame, fortune and enough beautiful women to last him a lifetime. That is until a young runaway shows him what is truly important. Family. A word in which plagues Luke with regret. As a scared twenty two year old he ran away from the love of his life and their unborn child. Now ready to reverse his biggest regret with only three days to do it, Luke’s fate hangs in the balance. The question is, will he be able to convince Marlene their love story deserves a second chance?
Well that was unexpected! Rockstar + Single Mom + Rekindled Romance always = fabulous! This was a story that I haven’t read teasers for or read anything more than the synopsis, so I wasn’t quite sure if I’d like the author’s style of writing or if the story would feel like a repeat of others that I have read. Luckily, it was unique and the style of writing was perfect.
Immediately I was intrigued by Marlene and her situation. Single moms are a whole different ballgame than what I’m used to. Marlene had a support system, but was still very much on her own. Her family dynamic was a little confusing at times – I couldn’t quite figure out the relationship she had with her parents – but that did not take away from the story at all. Luke’s family was cut and dry and there was no confusion.
Watching Luke come back and prove that he was ready for his family was very sweet. He wasn’t about to back down and let some other guy win. At the same time, it was interesting to read how Marlene battled with herself about going after the love of her life or her lifelong dream. Sometimes going after love is too big of a risk, but usually it pays off! Luckily for Marlene, Luke understood and supported her dreams and encouraged them.
This story was sweet and romantic and quite a bit angsty! If you are looking for a good summer read for this 4th of July weekend, this is one you’ll definitely want to check out!
