Book Blurb:

I’ve come undone. For years I thought the world looked at my family and saw perfection. I was a busy surgeon and my wife was devoted to our two boys. But her devotion crumbled as her alcoholism took over. The outside world saw all too well what I wanted to deny.

Ten months ago she filed for divorce, packed up and moved away. To where – I don’t know. Nor do I care. But my boys do. And they’re left with me, a man who never learned how to be the dad they deserve.

Just when I’m starting to pick up the pieces, my world is rocked again by the last woman I’d expect. Given her past with my family, she’s a bad idea. But I’m drawn like a moth to a flame. I can’t stay away, even though I know this, too, will eventually crumble around me.



I have been a big fan of the Lockhart Brothers since I first discovered them.  This is the third book but could be read as a stand alone.  I have been waiting for this one since the start.  Kyle Lockhart is the big brother.  The one who on the surface seemed to have his life together.  After his marriage implodes, he becomes a single dad with the primary focus of keeping his boys happy and healthy.  

Single dad stories get me every time.  What I appreciate about this author, is she gave us a seemingly believable twist.  Being a parent is hard work and doing it on your own is even harder.  I like that Kyle wasn't looking for any type of relationship but once he spent time with Meredith, he thought it might be possible to feel again.  It's the trap all parents fall into.  Do for your children, at the expense of your own happiness. 

Of course this isn't a smooth love story.  Meredith isn't sure she can trust her heart again.  She is the town piriah since ditching Kyle's brother at the alter.  These two are nicely able to heal each other and find the glue that lets their hearts feel again.  

One mysterious brother left to go.  Looking forward to more of this family.  As always, the time that brothers spend together is full of humor and unconditional support and love.  Great read!
