Serenity King is back with her second installment in the Powell series. I will say readers you don’t have to read the first book in the series to understand this one but you would want to just to get to know this up and coming family better. One of the things I love about this author is that she writes a good family tale as a reader you feel like you know these characters or want to get to know them. This story centers on Samantha and Adam and who could forget sweet Kayla. Vowing to never give her heart to another single mother Samantha cannot control what her heart desires don’t get me wrong she tries to. She is headstrong and at times a bit stubborn. Adam being a Westbrook has always had a thing for her she is beautiful, and their one night together wasn’t nearly enough. Except there is an issue Samantha’s past. She holds many secrets including who is the father of her child. Seeing through her façade Adam makes it his mission to be the father Kayla needs and the man Samantha always wanted.
I understood that Samantha was closed off after being heartbroken but at times she was hard on men mainly Adam. It was like she would be ok with where they were going but was too afraid to lean on him. I wanted Adam to be more of an alpha and take charge instead of letting Samantha come to her own devices. I will say that I hope Daniel (the guy from her past) gets his own story I think there is a lot he has to say. Although Adam could have been a bit more take charge I enjoyed his southern twang he was a good ole’ boy in every way possible. After the hospital scene I thought Samantha would have gotten the hint but she seemed more closed off than ever. Needless to say this chick was very frustrating at times. But after she stopped playing the cat and mouse game when she and Adam came together it was fireworks. I loved the family element of the book and Adam’s love for Kayla.
