After two broken engagements, Mia Robinson is done with dating. From now on, she’s focusing on God and her goal to join an international aid organization as a nurse practitioner. But when her 18-year-old sister, Lucy, calls with an invitation to her Vegas wedding, it throws a wrench into Mia’s plans.

Jake Tanner has recovered from the injuries he sustained as a police officer–on the outside. Inside, he’s yet to heal from losing his partner in the tragedy, but finds some solace in keeping an eye on her young adult son, Sam, who’s asked him to be best man at his wedding.

Mia expects a mess when she arrives to sort out the situation with Lucy, but she wasn’t expecting Jake, who views the marriage a little differently. As Jake’s and Mia’s lives slowly become more intertwined, could his courage and her caring heart be enough to bring them a lifetime of healing?

My Thoughts!

This is my first read by Bylin, but it made such an impression! I absolutely loved this book and could not tear myself away from it. I finished it in less than a day and couldn’t get enough. Even as I reached the last page I found myself wanting more. Bylin is talented and has such a unique writing style.With the ability to draw readers in on the edge of their seats and make it feel so realistic. I loved how relatable and believable this read was.

Lucy was a fun character. She is full of life and lives it on the edge. Mia on the other hand is more calculated and responsible. She thinks things through and is cautious. She’s been hurt before and she knows her boundaries. I found Mia more relatable, just because I could feel her pain and her  hesitation.  Don’t even get me started on Jake! He stole my heart and ran away with it! I found all of the characters relatable and well developed. They each had their own spotlight that didn’t outshine another.

This was a fast paced read and a true page turner! I highly recommend it and look forward to more from Bylin!
