A Little Intro: Five Star Fridays is one of my newest blog series that I will be doing every two weeks. This is a place where I will feature some of my favorite five star reads that I have not featured on the blog before. Most weeks it will be books, but some weeks it might be a product or subscription box. I hope you guys enjoy this new venture!
What do you do when your soul mate marries your best friend?
If you’re Kate Evans, you keep your friend Rachel, bond with her kids, and bury your feelings for her husband. The fact that Shane’s in the military and away for long periods helps—but when tragedy strikes, everything changes.
After Rachel, pregnant with her fourth child, dies in a car accident and the baby miraculously survives, Kate upends her entire life to share parenting duties. Then on the first anniversary of Rachel’s death, Kate and Shane take comfort in each other in a night that they both soon regret.
Shane’s been angry for a year, and now he feels guilty too—for sleeping with his wife’s best friend and liking it… liking her. Kate’s ability to read him like a book may have once sent Shane running, but their lives are forever entwined and they are growing closer.
Now with Shane deployed for seven months, Kate is on her own and struggling with being a single parent. Shane is loving and supportive from thousands of miles away, but his homecoming brings a betrayal Kate never saw coming. So Kate’s only choice is to fight for the future she deserves—with or without Shane…
A Few Thoughts:
I am so happy that I chose this book to feature first in this series of blog posts because it will be in my favorite reads this year. It is so emotional and heartfelt that it literally pours off the page with each word written. It is a true second chance romance with a twist and had my attention the entire book. One of my favorite things to have in books is children because they add a whole different element to the story rather than it just being a love story. The sense of family and the strength of this couple really stood out to me and I loved every second. The second book is just as good and I am hoping to get to the third book as soon as I can!
