Summary

A brilliant and touching romantic comedy from the USA Today bestselling author of The Friend Zone and The Happy Ever After Playlist.

When Vanessa Price quit her job to pursue her dream of traveling the globe, she wasn't expecting to gain millions of YouTube followers who shared her joy of seizing every moment. For her, living each day to its fullest isn't just a motto. Her mother and sister never saw the age of 30, and Vanessa doesn't want to take anything for granted.

But after her half-sister suddenly leaves Vanessa in custody of her baby daughter, life goes from 'daily adventure' to 'hourly nappy change'. The last person Vanessa expects to show up offering help is the hot lawyer next door, Adrian Copeland. After all, she barely knows him. No one warned her that he was the Secret Baby Tamer or that she'd be spending a whole lot of time with him and his geriatric Chihuahua.

Now she's feeling things she's vowed not to feel. Because the only thing worse than falling for Adrian is finding a little hope for a future she may never see.

Perfect, but hits close to home

Now, don't get me wrong - this book is absolutely wonderful and just as perfect as every book by Abby Jimenez I've had the pleasure to read.

That being said, for the current situation kn my personal life, this wasn't necessarily the best choice for practicing escapism, as I had planned. I literally bought this book to escape the fact that my sister is battling cancer, and my family is trying to cope with the situation in all the dysfunctional ways possible. This story hit a little close to home - as in change the names, make everyone poor, and give no guarantee of a happy ending. I both loved this book for it's authencity, and dredded to find things go horribly wrong.

(***SPOILER*** Happy ending.)


I have all the reasons to give this book 5 stars across the board. Had I read the description, I might have waited a little before reading this. I'm glad I didn't. I choose not to give the possibility of a sad ending ruin the things I have to enjoy right now. I needed to read this book. Life's too short.
