After all, finding herself a single mother to twins after her ‘allergic to responsibility’ ex-boyfriend left town has kinda set the bar for whatever might come her way. Except the day-to-day realities of single motherhood has her juggling in a way that she couldn’t anticipate, which is why she's one sleepless night away from a padded cell.
Her unexpected help comes in the form of Michael Whitfield, unrepentant flirt and alleged manwhore. Michael isn’t allergic to responsibility, but he does have a healthy aversion to commitment, until his relationship with Brooke. Their friendship is easy, until it’s not. They learn to walk a tight rope of restraint, choosing not to act on their attraction out of respect for the friendship they’ve built.
One scorching, clothes-free visit past the boundaries they put in place, and Brooke finds herself facing the most uncontrollable situation of all: risking her heart to a man who’s never had to take care of one before.
Oh, how I love Ms. Sorensen’s books. I was first introduced to her when I read Cole, which then I had to read Dylan and Garrett’s books. Now, we have Michael (who is in the previous books) and Brooke (who is Julia’s sister from Cole).
Michael first meets Brooke in Cole (but Michael can be read as a standalone but I highly encourage to read the prior books because they are just so good!!). Brooke is a single mom of twins, Michael is a bachelor living with his brother. Their connection is one of friends but relationships evolve and grow.
I really wish I could give this more than 5 stars! The character development of both Michael and Brooke with the support of all the secondary characters makes Ms. Sorensen’s book another fine example of excellent writing.
