Sometimes you have to fight for what - for who - you love.
Shannon Vanderhoff’s childhood taught her early on that nothing was hers to keep, not clothes, or toys, or even people. So she lives, loves, and lets go. She’s not looking for a hero.
But with custody of her traumatized six-year-old nephew on the line, she needs help. Charming Greg Hawkins, a comic book artist and art therapist insists he can coax Ryan into speaking again, enabling the boy to reveal what he saw the night of his mother’s death at his father’s hands. And though Shannon’s skeptical of Greg’s methods, there’s no denying that he brings light and color to their lives.
Greg, one of twelve siblings, knows anything worth having is worth fighting for. If anyone can prepare Shannon for the upcoming battle, it’s Greg and his family.
But will she fight to keep him, too?

A little predictable but enjoyable
I liked this story even with its predictable happy ending( l knew how Ryan and Patty would get on) The large Hawkins family are engaging and interesting enough that I'm tempted to buy the next book in the series.
I could not put this down. I was up till two in the morning reading last night. A lovely story with a good twist. Made me happy.
I couldn't put this book down and read through the night until it was finished. Shannon has learnt to keep her distance from people and material possessions, enjoying them in the moment and then letting go. This allows her not to get hurt but is hardly conducive to her forming a relationship with her traumatised 6 year old nephew, who has not spoken since the day he witnessed his mother's murder and whom she has only seen twice since he was born. Greg, an art therapist with a large loving family, helps bring the two of them together and encourages Shannon to fight to hold on to those she cares about.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.
