Stevie

There’s nothing more liberating than picking up your life and relocating. I needed a fresh start, desperately looking to get away from my past. Stewart Grove is such a cute small town and seems like the perfect place to settle. Add in the fact I got a job serving at the popular Burgers and Brew restaurant, and everything seems to be clicking into place.

Then single dad Jack Harper sat down at one of my tables and turned my world upside down.

I wasn’t expecting to meet a man so quickly after moving, let alone one ten years my senior, but there’s no denying the instant connection. The problem is, I carry a secret. One that could destroy this new life I’m creating.

I just pray it all doesn’t blow up in my face.
Jack

Weekends are spent with my kids. As a local electrician and business owner, I don’t exactly work your typical nine-to-five job. Add in co-parenting with my ex-wife, and there isn’t a lot of free time for myself. Dates have always been an afterthought, especially when the few I’ve been on didn’t go well. I’m content with just being Dad, making sure my kids always come first.

Then I met her.

Stevie Clement is completely unexpected in the best sort of way, and I find myself drawn to her like I’ve never experienced. I want all of her time, in my life and in my bed.

However, it may come down to an impossible decision: my kids or the woman I want to spend my life with.

It’s always a special treat to get back to the Burgers and Brew Crüe and when I heard that this book was coming, I couldn’t one-click fast enough! Stevie and Jack have such a sweet story and the twist — I LOVED it! It gave me a chance to get more of my favorite guy of the series – Jameson!

Stevie had a rough childhood and from the moment she was 18, she hightailed away from her mother and began making a life of her own. Her heart is so big, open, and I love how she has a bucket list of things she wants to do. Many of them are considered “normal, everyday” things, but to Stevie, they mean the world. Part of her moving to Stewarts Grove is a big step toward unveiling a secret she accidentally discovered. What she doesn’t realize is exactly how much it’s going to upend her life in the best possible way.

Jack is a sweet, hardworking dad who is coasting through life. He focuses on his kids and earns major swoon points for it. But when he meets Stevie, he suddenly feels a pull like no other. After a bit of a push from his best friend, we see Jack finally carving out some time for him by going on dates and spending time with Stevie. I adored how he maintained a good relationship with his ex-wife and how supportive they were for one another in regard to the kids. This moved Jack up to the top of my favorite single dads list!

Without the angst, I felt like the entire storyline, including the hardships that come with having kids and dating, were relatable and real-life examples of how adult relationships work. Even though there is an age gap, you can easily see the maturity in Stevie that she’s developed due to her previous circumstances. Their time together is passionate and brings all the love that I can always expect from Lacey’s books. If you’ve read the entire series, you’ll enjoy catching up with previous characters and hints at who will be the next we’ll get to return to!
