When a Lost Child warning blares over the mall’s PA system, Carly Mason finds the little girl playing with a stuffed rabbit. Something about Penny Tremaine is different. An ex-social worker, Carly recognizes that the child suffers fetal alcohol effects, and a piece of Carly’s past suddenly confronts her. Never again will she become personally involved with a client. The risks are far too great. But something about Penny—and Penny’s handsome father—tugs at Carly’s heart.
Dr. Ryan Tremaine is trying to put his life back together. With his ex-wife remarried and on a trip far away, his two teenage sons and Penny are living under his roof full time. Ryan has put his faith in his Sink-or-Swim List, a plan to reconnect with his children. The first step: recruit Carly Mason to be Penny’s nanny.
Ryan never anticipated being so drawn to Carly, an attraction Carly seems to fight as much as he does. Could Carly be the missing piece that helps his family stay afloat, or will their blossoming romance only complicate things further?
Some books leave you with heart palpitations from the crazy thrill ride it had you on. Others you want to throw the book across the room because you just can’t accept the ending.
And then there are the stories that make you feel all happy, warm, and fuzzy inside. Together with You was one of the latter stories. It is such a wonderful story centralized around a father’s love towards his children and his desire to have a better relationship with them. I loved every word of this sweet and heartfelt novel. And of course the thread of romance made it all the more sweeter. :-) Two thumbs up!
