A second chance to build the family of their dreams…
Grant long ago gave up on a relationship with Leo Garner. After all Leo left him for a movie star, and who can compete with that? But now, Leo’s back with his adorable, genius daughter in tow, leaving Grant consumed by three important questions:
1) Did Leo come home looking for a fresh start without the movie star?
2) Does he want a do-over with Grant too?
3) Why else would Leo be hanging around Grant’s hospital so much anyway?
The attraction between Grant and Leo is undeniable, and soon their affection reignites as well. But will their luck hold out through health scares and family drama so they can find their happy ending at last?

I loved the characters and plot in this second chance romance. Grant and Leo are sweet together in a definite opposites attract story. Leo’s also a great dad to Lucky, and I loved the way her relationship with Grant grew alongside the main story to the point he’s acting like her 2nd dad, even if he’s not consciously realised he’d already in that role. The scenes between her and Grant are very sweet.
I thought the author used the time shifts well to cause tension, as it’s not whether they get together but if one of them survives a major health scare. As the backstory builds along with the tension by the time it got the crunch time of the latter, I was very invested in the characters. I also liked that Grant is realistic at the end of the story, knowing they have their happy ending but that are also on borrowed time.
The supporting cast is well written. I loved Marie, Leo’s memaw, and Alex, Grant’s friend. Curtis comes across as the self-centred jerk he is. I also like the sibling relationship between Leo and Hannah, which was very layered and added a lot of depth to the overall plot of the story.
I thought this was a very sweet story with plenty of hurt/comfort. The author has a very easy to writing style and although it’s the first story of hers I’ve read it won’t be the last.
