Brief Summary Courtesy of the Publisher MIRA
Sometimes starting over means finding everything you’ve been missing…
After catching her fiancé cheating—with another man–usually straight-laced, workaholic scientist Ellie Fisher liberates her wild side just long enough to indulge in a passionate one-night-stand with a tall, dark stranger she meets at a trendy Miami bar. Embarrassed by her recklessness, she ducks out the following morning without learning the guy’s full name, something that shouldn’t have been a problem…until a pregnancy test turns positive.
Being a professional football player, Hudson King has always been cautious around women. But this one had been different—so disinterested in his celebrity, so convincingly into him. When Ellie tracks him down, claiming she’s carrying his baby, he’s stunned. And more than a little betrayed.
But after growing up as an orphan, he’ll do anything to stay involved in his child’s life, so he urges Ellie to move to Silver Springs where they can co-parent. Hudson has a lot of love to give—certainly enough for his child, and when their initial spark reignites, perhaps for Ellie too...
I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest, unbiased review. This is the third book in the Silver Springs series by Brenda Novak. I have been a fan of Brenda Novak's for a couple years now so when I got the opportunity to read this book I jumped at the chance. I truly feel this series gets better and better with each book that she writes.
Brenda did a great job of developing these characters from start to finish of this book. I really liked Ellie's character as you got to see her go through heartbreak and then got to see her begin to love not another person again but herself. In addition, I liked how Brenda really developed the characters through out the book and had them really grow as individuals and as a couple eventually. I honestly felt like it was a true relationship that could happen in real life and wasn't just fantasy.
In addition, I really enjoyed the storyline of this book. As you a reader you felt like you were going through each of the stages that Ellie and Hudson were going through in the book. In addition, Brenda did a great job of adding a great plot twist in the book that I will not divulge because I think that it should be something the reader should find out for themselves. I can tell you it was one of the reasons I kept on reading until the end to find out what happened.
I can't wait to read the next book in the series and to see what story Brenda decided to right next as I know it will be great!
