    Loved it

    I loved this one!! It's a sweet small town second chance romance that filled me with all sorts of emotions. The way Cam interacted with Zoey and his immediate love for her was heartwarming. No excuses, no anger, just acceptance and love. It was perfect. The attraction between Cam and Emma could be felt throughout the book. I enjoyed the fact that Cam and Emma were accepting of each other just as they were, faults and all. This is truly an entertaining quick read that will leave you with a smile. I highly recommend it.

    hard to resist

    I’ve read quite a few of Madsen’s books and loved every one of them – I’m not sure how I missed this series, but this is the first I’ve read (not that it caused me any issues). Although I do kinda wish I’d read Heath’s story because I think it would have helped with understanding some of Cam’s history with his dad, but otherwise this one stands alone really well. Because of the way that Cam grew up, readers totally understand why he is anti-relationship … and why he reacts so strongly to the idea of having a daughter but not being involved with her. Watching him get a crash course in fatherhood is super sweet and helps ease him into the idea of a family. He’s still got concerns and fears but spending time with Emma & Zoe makes it super hard to resist them. And for us to resist him :) Because a strong, Alpha, ex-military man falling in love with his precocious little girl? Absolutely darling!

    A touching lovely read

    What a lovely second chance romance that really reaches your heart. Emma has always had a crush on Cam who is the bad boy in town. What is there not to want he is so sexy, a true hunk add the bad boy and he could rock my world any day. They have one night of hot passion before Cam goes off to start his tour of duty. It wasn’t long before Emma new that hot night would be a night to remember in more than one way. When her baby girl is born she refused to give the name of the father. When Cam returns home it puts another light on the picture it just isn’t right not to tell the man he has a daughter. So many questions going through her mind with her working close with Cam and his brother she wonders how to tell Cam. What will he do, what will his actions be, will he want to get to know his daughter or will he say it isn’t his and how will she fight this attraction she still has for him? This is a wonderful sweet second chance read full of turmoil as they face the unknown to bring a family together. When kids act out there is usually more to the story as in Cam case he had a bad family life he was dealing with. It is always easier to point the finger at the boy who is always in trouble so you do not have to look closer to the issue. Emma life hasn’t be roses since their night which changed her life. You know how small towns are they have their nose in everything as they do in this small town. The author gives a wonderful spellbound story full of so much emotion with wonderful characters that take your breath away. The supporting characters are great you are going to fall in love with Emma’s grandmother as she makes you smile again and again. This story might not be anything new in the writing world but it was a very touching lovely story full of romance that will keep you smiling and take you way to a place where life ends with a HAE. If you are looking for a story which you do not have to give close attention to every detail just one that you can relax with and feels like you have come home this is the story for you.

    Bad boys make good daddies

    This whole series has been about second chances and this is a really sweet second chance story. Cam Brantley has returned after a decade of fighting for his country. Hope Springs has demons that he must deal with eventually but the ghosts of his tours haunt him. An abusive father and his inherited anger issues have been enough to keep him from getting involved in serious relationships. The last thing he expects to find out is that he is a father. Emma Walker's one and only purposeful indiscretion left her pregnant, causing her to put her life on hold once again. But that did not stop her from achieving her dreams and her determination to be a good mother to Zoey and landing her dream job in an architectural firm. The Mountain Ridge project is her stepping stone to the next level. Only she didn't expect her plans to be derailed with the return of Cam. And his discovery of the fact that he was Zoey's father. Each broken and wary because of their pasts, they decide to give each other a chance for the sake of Zoey. Emma's strength and attitude give Cam hope that they may just have a future together. But first he needs to let go of his demons and give them a chance to work. ARC provided in exchange for an honest review

    Delightful!

    Adorable story about second chances, about finding your home, your place in the world, learning to see all the possibilities we have within ourselves, and not to judge ourselves, or another by our history. Because history in the small town of Hope Springs Cam and his family had. History, that he, and the other members of his family, would rather leave behind, but also history, that made Cam to swear, he would never enter into a serious relationship, and never father a child. Emma's parents gave up their dreams of a better and brighter future, to get married and raise her, and stay in the small town they grew up in. Until they couldn't any longer, and Emma's grandmother took care of her. Now some were afraid, history was repeating itself. What I loved about the story, was that even though it handles some big issues like abuse and anger issues, and huge emotions like being a parent and falling in love, as well as future plans, it had a very real, kind of raw feeling to it. Cam is still recovering mentally from his discharge from the military. He is trying to build the new business with his brother, and deal with his dad, and now daughter, and Emma... It all is just overwhelming, and so much, and still he handles it well, not perfectly, but well. And they get to know each other, take the time they need in this new situation, and try to fit as well as possible into each other's worlds. The feelings between Emma and Cam come later, but are powerful, intense, and real. The attraction is filled with passion, and it shows, yet the author doesn't need detailed sex scenes to show this. I loved the tone, the flow, and the rhythm of the story, all making it easy to take in and digest. Charming, attractive characters, in the midst of a small town living, where there's the perfect balance of meddling and gossip in between taking care of each other when the need arise. Cute as a button little princess, that captures everyone's hearts, and a family of a heart and blood, that finds a way to live with each other, and support each other, on the path they each choose. An entertaining story filled with friends, family, love and laughter, and one very important basket auction ~ Four Spoons
