    This book’s storytelling and captivity factor is extremely good. Every time I picked the book back up, I found it super easy to get right back into it. I didn’t even have to think about anything. I didn’t zone out at all while reading. It was just a really nice, captivating read. I love it when a book pulls me in that easily, right from the start. I was even reading another book at the same time and had no issues switching between the two. The story itself was good. The characters were okay. I thought it was a nice little story. The characters both had their past issues, or “scars” as they referred to it, that they had to try to overcome in order to open up to each other and happily be together. The romance didn’t really do it for me. I was on board with it, but not excited about it. I was a bit annoyed at times by the choices the characters made (especially near the end). All the back-and-forthness just urked me. But at the same time, it made sense considering what they were dealing with and trying to overcome. I also feel like Gabe wasn’t quite as likeable as the author was trying to portray. Yes, he was a great father, but the way he talks to Lia at times was not the most kind. I understand he was under a lot of stress and he was dealing with his issues, but he was very angry at times. That makes me a bit concerned about their future. I thought the portrayal of the two-year-old was really well-done. The author must have kids or be around them a lot. I currently have a two-year-old, so I enjoyed reading about the one in this book. And I kept referencing this book when discussing our daughter with my husband. It’s funny. I kept saying things like “the dad in the book I’m reading handled the situation like this…” or “the dad in the book I’m reading is struggling with this with his two-year-old too.” My husband would laugh at me and say it sounds like I’m talking about a real person. Lol. But I guess that’s how captivating the book was and how connected I was to the characters. All-in-all, I enjoyed this book and the story, but obviously there were some things that bothered me about it too.

    Fantastic

    Wow - this book! Not sure my heart will ever be the same. This author has crafted a story that will flip every emotional switch you have and leave you wanting more. Gabriel is the widowed father of four young daughters. What an amazing example of a man. He'd do anything for his girls and he doesn't care who knows. Amelia is his new next door neighbor. She's starting over after infertility and infidelity ruined her marriage. Neither of them ever thought they could love again but after spending time together it becomes clear feelings of love are there but can they both learn to love and trust again? These two characters as well as Gabe's girls deserve a HEA but loving again is scary. Are they brave enough? Everyone needs this on their must read list. One of the best books I've read this year.

    Loved!! Plenty of Emotions!

    Loved, loved this book. Gabriel, lost his wife two years ago and is now raising his four daughters. He is the building superintendent when he meets his new neighbor, Lia. Lia has recently gone through a divorce and finds out she can not have her own children. Can these two with broken hearts find comfort in each other and start a new life? This is one of the best books that I have read this year, it will pull on all of your heartstrings. I fell in love with all the characters, even the little girls. Gabriel is such a wonderful dad, who wouldn't want to have a manicure night. Lia, my heart just breaks for her, the number one thing she wants is to have a baby, but now she has four little girls that just love her. Fair warning, there will be tears, sad and happy! I highly recommend this book!!!!

    Best Book I have read this yr by any author

    Oh My Giddy Aunt this book had me from the cover alone! Then I cracked it open and started reading and I was spellbound by Super Gabe, his 4 precious girls and Lia the Lovely Lady. This is the first book I have read by author Patty Blount and I am hoping she will write more books along this line in the future. Life is not all sunshine and roses and yes bad things do happen to good people. Death sadly comes a knocking when people least expect it. It is what the people who are left behind do with themselves that really show their character and their true spirit. A widowed father of 4 Gabe quits his higher paying job, becomes a super of a set of apartments away from where he used to live with his wife after she passes unexpectedly. He does this so he can be home to raise those young children while working from home. WoW. Look at the cover and that is so much the book. Then we have Lia or Amelia a divorced self employed woman who moves into the complex and she turns his work upside down and inside out. BUT truth be told he does the same thing to her. Life is not smooth sailing once she moves in and feels the sparks from day one. OH no not at all. Just because the cute main can walk around with hair clips and painted nails carrying a baby on his hip it doesn't mean a single thing now does it. No it doesn't. One has to fight pre-teens, children with illnesses , self destruction and so much more. I invite you to meet the Iver family and see for yourself why Nobody Said I'd Be Easy.
