From USA Today bestselling author Rebecca Yarros comes a brand-new small town, older-brother's best friend standalone romance.
"I'll take them!"
That's what I tell the social worker when my pre-k student and his baby brother need an emergency foster placement. I'll do anything to keep the brothers from being split up. But my apartment's flooded and there's only one house I can take them to on such short notice…his.
Knox Daniels, my older brother's best friend, offers his new place without hesitation. He's not moving back to our tiny town until next month—that's when all our hotshot firefighters are returning for their one and only chance to rebuild our fathers' fallen, iconic crew.
It doesn't matter that I've been silently in love with Knox since we were kids.
It can't matter that we pretend that reckless prom night kiss never happened.
It won't matter that my feelings for him could destroy his lifelong friendship with my brother and threaten the certification of their hotshot crew.
Because I'll be out of his house long before he gets back.
Except Knox just walked in…a month early.
And the icing on this awkward cake?
He's gorgeous as always and I'm covered in baby puke.
He takes one look at the boys and tells me we can make this work—
We can temporarily fake a relationship to keep them from being separated by the system.
Suddenly, everything matters.
Several years ago, I started binging all of RY’s books and have been impatiently waiting to go back Legacy. This book did not disappoint!!!
As is usually the case with an RY novel, it’s a rollercoaster of emotion that I both wanted to savor and barrel through. I truly couldn’t get enough of Knox and Harper. This trip to Legacy has me itching for more already
Four days. That’s how long it took me to even consider picking up another book after finishing Reason to Believe. When I did finally decide I had to call my book bestie with the, “whadda ya got for me, because the last book I finished was ahh-maazing?” For four days I wasn’t even a little interested in jumping into a new world because all was right with the one I’d just left. It’s taken even longer to find words for a review.
Harper and Knox’s story was such a fantastic combination of some of my favorite story elements. First of all it’s their history and friendship. In her time of need Harper only has to ask for Knox’s help and the simple answer is yes. No questions asked, sight unseen just unconditional support. Oh my heart! It was that moment I knew my little heart was just done for.
As if that wasn’t enough to obliterate my heart there are the children. Now I love kids in books but I’ve never read a book with a fostering situation and these tiny humans just broke me. Their situation, their relationship. My word just thinking about sweet little Liam makes me want to tear up. This dynamic is done so well to the point that I actually hurt for these little guys and what they are going through.
Then you put both these elements together and it’s just a game changer. The love, the emotion, the relationships and the growth in this book will definitely make you happy. Also probably break your heart a little bit. But trust when I say you’ll be pieced back together with a heart so full you may not want to enter another world for four whole days.
The sparks fly in this beautiful story!
As one who loved the first two “prequel” books to this series I have been desperately waiting for this book! Knox and Harper are everything you want and need in a truly beautiful love story.
There’s unrequited love, unconditional love, familial love, second chance love and happily ever after love. There’s also heartbreak (this is a Yarros book after all!) but in true form Ms. Yarros takes our hand and walks us through the steps to heal and recover.
I couldn’t put this book down! Ms. Yarros takes us through so many emotions and you can’t help but want more. One minute your crying and the next your laughing, it’s a perfect mix. And the steam level is on point to! You won’t be disappointed with this amazing read. And I can’t wait for more form this series, it’s goin g to be amazing!
