Authors: Lex Martin & Leslie McAdam

Genre: Romance

Release Date: March 12, 2019

Free ARC provided through Give Me Books PR in exchange for an honest review.


     Kendall and Drew are such an adorable couple! The character development was spot-on and I really like how their story ended. I enjoyed how the authors made sure that Drew struggles a little with turning his life around, because that’s a real-life hardship and it makes his character more compelling. I was rooting for him throughout the whole book! Even the description of “Drew 1.0” is realistic with his beer gut which made me laugh out loud but also enjoy him even more. 

    Kendall seems to be a spitfire of a woman at first, but once you get to read more about her then you’ll notice how tenderhearted she truly is. I think the storyline was absolutely perfect. It wasn’t rushed and the characters were rational throughout the book. They took the time to actually think things out like a true couple would do. Surprise, baby! Will definitely leave you feeling warm inside and smiling.


Book Blurb:

I don’t care that Drew Merritt spent the last year transforming himself from grungy slob to sexy playboy. With messy, dirty blond hair and gorgeous eyes, his looks aren’t the problem.

His mouth is.

And the stupid things that come out of it.

But after an emergency strands us together, and he does his damnedest to take care of me… 

Let’s just say there’s one thing we don’t clash on.

And it doesn’t involve talking.

I’ve despised Drew since I met him years ago. One weekend can’t change us that much, can it?

Spoiler alert: It doesn’t.

Except he left me a little keepsake.

And in nine months, I’ll have a surprise for Portland’s most notorious player.
