When I agreed to read this book, I had not read the prior 4 books in the series.
I decided to read the entire series and I have to say, that this one is my favorite of them all. Letting Ryker have his POV just gave the story more well rounded. I love that we get to hear from him from almost page one. We find out how his life was before he shows up to Jackson’s door.
In this story, you really get Jackson, and his illness and how he lives his life in spite of it. He steps up from the second he knows he has Ryker and never looks back.
On top of all that, he falls almost instantly for Kennedy. Kennedy and her OCD. She is so organized she should have stock in Post-Its. She and Ryker form a relationship just as awsome as her’s with Jackson.
This book will make you laugh, cry, and go awwwwwwwwwwww!
What happens when circumstances of life threaten the one thing both Jackson and Kennedy love? Saving Steele from himself may prove to be too much for Cross to bear.
Kennedy Cross had her heart broken early in life. It wasn’t someone or something who betrayed her—it was her own body. Despite it being all she’s ever wanted, Kennedy will never know what it feels like to feel her baby’s feet kick from the inside out. Having been pronounced infertile at only eighteen, she redirected her life the best way she could.
Eight years and a degree later, Kennedy is one of the most well-loved first-grade teachers at Rock Falls Elementary School. It doesn’t matter that her college boyfriend left her because he wanted children of his own. She has twenty-two of the most gorgeous six-year-olds who adore her and she wouldn’t have it any other way.
Jackson Steele deals only in extremes. He falls victim to manic episodes lasting for days, sometimes weeks at a time, sending him reeling from volatile highs to devastating lows. It’s a living hell just being inside his own mind, and that hell has taken everything he’s ever loved away from him. But what if, this time, it gives him something? An untimely gift from God and a brunette with legs eight miles long will bring him the most unforeseen joy but also his most challenging of tests.
