About the Author
I sleep little, read a lot. Happiest in a foreign country. Twitchy when not mentally in motion. My name is Sam, not Sammy, definitely not Samantha. I’m a pretty dark/cynical/jaded person, but I hide that darkness well behind my obsession(s) for shiny objects. I’m the macabre wrapped in irresistible bubble wrap and a glittery pink bow, I suppose.

Sweet, sweet, romance.
(Updated: October 13, 2015)
This is a very sweet, incredibly romantic, low drama, second chance love story.
As far as the relationship between Nick and Adam is concerned, the will they/won't they/should they/could they aspect of the story is resolved earlier in the book that you would perhaps expect, the bulk of the drama/angst in this tale coming from Adam's daughter's worsening medical condition. This gave the author the opportunity to show us that, despite having spent so many years apart, this couple were very much a case of 'stronger together'. We got to see them support each other in extraordinary circumstances, bolstering their relationship, developing Adam, Nick and their daughters as very much a family.
The cast of secondary characters in this book were fabulous, both friends and family. (I feel a Daniel/Charlie story in there somewhere.) supportive, understanding, and so accepting of Nick and Adam's relationship, particularly the two girls who became fast friends right from the off. A misunderstanding with Nick's ex-wife, Shelly, was perhaps the only fly in the relationship ointment.
It's sweet, it's emotional, it's a low stress, high romance read. All the characters, not just the MCs are so well written, so carefully laid out that they feel like friends. Yes, in places it is so sweet you may fear for your teeth, but honestly I liked these boys so much that I wanted that for them. Sometimes, when a couple appeal so much, I want the undiluted, all out, smack me in the face romance for them. I really liked Adam, Nick and their beautiful family, I wanted them to get their happy, I wanted them to be together, I wanted them to get what they should have had years earlier.
This book is a lovely, lovely read, a real, heartwarming, feel-good romance.
