Publisher's Summary

With so many depending on her, she has no time for a personal life....
When her husband left her pregnant, with a four-year-old child and a restaurant on the verge of bankruptcy, the only things Holly McGinty had time for were her kids - and working hard to stay out of the poor house. Five years later, business is booming and her boys are happy, but she's still putting her own needs at the bottom of her priority list. That doesn't stop her from daydreaming about her oldest son's sexy scout leader, though.
He never believed in love at first sight - until he met her....
Sam Jensen gets along great with kids, is a successful architect, and has the best friends a guy could ask for. But figuring out relationships with women has never come easy to him. He feels like a tongue-tied teenager around most of them. Except for Holly, and it's looking like things might work out with her. As long as one tiny little secret remains a secret.

Sweet Romance and Strong Friendship

After a difficult marriage and divorce, Holly focuses on running her restaurant and taking care of her two boys. She doesn't have time for romance. Sam is the Scout troop leader for Holly's boys, and has been in love with Holly for a long time. He's even decorated his home to her taste and set up bedrooms for her boys, although he still hasn't worked up the nerve to ask her out. Once Holly and Sam have their first date, things settle into a comfortable rhythm for them. But Holly doesn't find it so easy to let go of her past.

This was a sweet clean romance that could be read as a standalone, although I'd recommend reading the first book to become familiar with the whole gang. There's a mystery that involves Coach that arcs through the series. This book had a lot of dialogue that at times seemed repetitive, and the book moved at a gentle pace with a lot of day to day details.

I liked both leads, and most of the group of friends. Holly's little boys were adorable! Sam was a picture perfect hero, great with kids, a literal genius, and well off. Holly was a strong woman, a single mother raising two boys and running a successful restaurant. This was a great read if you enjoy sweet romances and strong friendships.

I enjoyed the narration, Daniela Acitelli had an expressive voice and read dramatically. She performed voices for the characters and it was always easy to tell who was speaking. I received a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.
