I said ‘I do’ to the first guy to sweep me off my feet after my heart shattered all those years ago. I didn’t just vow to love him; nope, I signed on that line for both him and his daughter.

This lifestyle is new and one that I never thought I'd want. Why? Because over the years, my job and friends were the most important thing to me. Don’t get me wrong, the girls are still my family. It’s just this tattooed mechanic changed my outlook on love. Let's not forget that the cute blonde-haired princess has me wrapped around her fingers, and I'd do anything to protect her.

Love isn’t always natural… Nope, and we already have a few problems to work through. I’m not his daughter’s mother, and the guy who broke my heart all those years ago works in the office next to me.

You guessed it, things are about to get a little spicy when love goes sideways.

Diesel Michael Kraft and his daughter, Cassidy, have changed my outlook on life and love. The only problem is, now I’m afraid that I have more to lose in the end. They both have the power to destroy what soul that I have left. by Natasha

 

  • Cover/Title: 3/4.5  I love the title of all the books of the series and I like the font and subtitles on the cover. I’m not a huge fan of the couple’s placement in the cover and I believe they should take more of it. I also would rather have a Diesel with a tight T-shirt or maybe a bit of oil. I don’t like him in a button-down.
  • Plot: story line 4.5/5, story ending 5/5, pace 4/5, enjoyment 4.5/5, originality 4/5, writing style 5/5 I love this series and Ms. Willard has created 4 amazing books. This one is the perfect ending to an amazing series. So well-written with everything cohesive, with smut pertinent to the plot and the development of the story grows in a steady pace. Great ending! Love seeing all 4 friends here. This is a book of friendship, of love, of rebuilding ourselves, of creating new paths.
  • Characters: hero 5/5, heroine 5/5, secondary characters 5/5  These characters have always been the stars of this series. This has always been about their relationship as family, friends and how relatable they are to us in real life. All four women are amazing. They are all different, with their own quirks and personalities. They mesh so well together. Diesel is another great male character of the series. He is hot, sweet, patient and insecure sometimes, like us in real lives.
  • Heat: chemistry  4.5/5, steam  3.5/5, romance 4.5/5  Their love can be felt from the first page of the book. It goes backwards from what we find most of the time in a romance novel. We start reading their story with all that love and our journey here with them is to watch how they can overcome life’s burdens and keep this love intact, real. There is no lack of chemistry with this couple and like all Ms. Willard’s books of this series there is enough steam for us lovers of spicy romance.
  • Addictiveness: This entire series is addictive. You can’t put it down and I was almost literally crying at the end, not wanting to believe there isn’t a book #5.

 

  • Only knowing that we would still have more books in the series would make me feel better, but because I try to be fair with my reviews I have to say:
  • Freshness: This is the sort of tale that you won’t find many totally new ideas. It’s friendship and love to a T. The whole thing is a bit predictable, a few twists here and there, a lot of angst in the way, but we know what is happening as we read along. Really, who needs new, when you got perfection?
So hard to complete my thoughts about this book/series. Is not often that I read a series that I enjoy immensely all four books. They all were 4.5 stars for me, which is as close to perfection this can get.
This was a journey of love into all forms. There is not only great romance here, there is friendship at its best, there is the love of parents raising a kid, there is respect and loyalty among a group. There is also lots of sweets to touch our hearts with a dash of spicy here and there.
Ms. Willard’s writing style is amazing and she makes me laugh, cry and feel along with her characters. I feel I’m part of this group and they are my friends.

Suspense 2/5  Darkness 0/5  Humor 4/5  Action 2/5 Angst 4/5 Twists 3.5/5 

Recommend this book: Yes

Read more from the author: Yes

Re-read this book: I have just re-read book one and two, so I could read three and four with a good eye and I know this is going to be one of my to-go series (when I need something old to comfort and keep me balanced).

You MAY buy this book because you followed the series; you SHOULD buy this book because the author’s writing is superb; you MUST read this book if you are looking for a masterfully written tale of friendship & love!!!

About A.M. Willard

International Bestselling Author, A.M. Willard resides in Savannah, Georgia. She joined the Peach State many years ago after leaving the crystal blue waters and sugary white sand behind from the Panhandle of Florida. She’s also known for being a wife, mother, and caretaker for her farm animals. A.M. loves anything sassy, glittery, and is a sucker for the Hallmark Channel. That last one might be the reason she believes in soulmates or it could be because she married her high school sweetheart almost twenty years ago.

After releasing her first novella series back in 2014, A.M. set out on a new goal to bring her readers a broad range of romantic stories from her desk. This includes Romantic Comedy, Contemporary Romance, and from time to time some Sexy Romance.

A.M. is an active member of RWA (Romance Writers of America) and has also had an article published in the Writer’s Monthly Review Magazine.
