Mae Turney is searching for the type of life and happiness she has never known but has only dreamed about. She’s fortunate enough to find a great opportunity to live in an exterior apartment of a beautiful lake house in a small town in Vermont. When she realizes the apartment and scenery are not the only gorgeous appeal but the home owner, Seth Finn, is as well, she puts it all on the line for the chance at love. When she becomes comfortable and confident in her own skin and sexuality, Mae realizes that this place and this man is exactly what she came looking for. Knowing Seth and his three children are as special as they come, Mae bets the house, and prays she and her gamble are enough.
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not compensated.
Mae is an oncology nurse so she has always been a compassionate soul. But then there is compassionate and then there is insecure doormat. Mae reminds me of well, me. Life was not what I had been dreaming of so my husband and I moved across the country and started building the life we wanted. That is what Mae did. She took control and rented a gorgeous apartment. The details were so amazing, I felt like I could see the apartment and house.
Seth is a strong passionate Irish man, who is raising his three kids on his own. Their mother passed away from cancer. I fell in love with this man myself because he was REAL. I know that there is a formula to the male characters in most stories but I like how Seth made the mistakes that your husband or boyfriend would make. That made it clear to me that I would be following this author’s work in the future.
It was so easy to see how easy this family was to love and I am not surprised that Mae did. I was broken-hearted when Seth turned on her. Ironically enough, I understood why but I didn’t like the way it was done. Stubborn ass, should have listened. 🙂
