GoodReads Summary:

Meg Michaels, a bookstore owner, has already walked away from two cheating exes. She’s learned her lesson and has her mind set on success—until she gets knocked up. Embarrassed and unwilling to discuss her situation with friends and family, she wears layers to hide the pregnancy.

When Meg gets sick at a party, she’s mortified. Even worse, Theo Taylor, the guest of honor, discovers her secret. Theo, an Army medic wounded in the war, agrees not to reveal her condition, and the two forge a bond of friendship that blossoms into love.

Theo is soon filling all of Meg’s late-night cravings—and not just the pregnancy-induced ones. But can their love overcome all the obstacles that stand between them and creating a happy family?

My Review:
First response: Oh my, this one really made me cry several times as Meg and Theo and the rest of them worked out their issues. But it has such a sweet HEA that it was worth it all. Full review on my blog coming soon.

Twisty? Yah, this one is twisty all right. No one is really who they seem to be. There are so many secrets in these families. Everyone should have their DNA checked! I can't tell you who's who, because that would spoil things. And I don't do that. 

I liked that Ms. Ashby took two "types" and worked them into a fabulous story. Taking a pregnant woman and all the physical and emotional problems that come with that and putting her together with a recently disabled, combat Veteran and all his baggage. It made for a powerful, emotional morass that kept me reading this book in one day. And these two aren't the only ones with secrets. There are enough secrets to go around when you start looking into other members of the family.

This is a debut novel from an author I strongly recommend you keep your eye on!

This was a Book Bub purchase through Amazon. This is an honest review for which I am receiving no compensation of any type. All opinions are fully my own.
