Description from Publisher: Lance Townsend craves freedom after years living a structured existence in the Army. But just as he’s about to start on his bucket list, Lance receives an unexpected request: check in on his goddaughter. The problem? The adorable little girl’s aunt is the one woman he’s never been able to forget.

Carly Quigley can’t believe her brother’s best friend, the man who jilted her years ago, is at her door. He claims her brother asked him to check in on her niece and their fixer-upper, but all either of them can focus on is their undeniable attraction. Carly knows Lance is counting down the hours to leave, which makes him the wrong man for her. Unfortunately, the wrong man has become oh-so-tempting.

My Rating:
Heat Rating:

I received a digital ARC from the publisher through for an honest, unbiased review. This in no way influenced my review. My opinion is my 100% own.

Sweet story with an adorable 4-year-old girl, and a likeable heroine and hero. Mya, the child, is very believable and I loved what she adds to this. Likewise, the army/military aspect is present but not overly done, blended in well.

The sexy scenes and the chemistry between Carly and Lance is good, though not explosive. It's warm, and sweet, with a bit of spice.

I really liked the parenting philosophy shown here. When Mya acts out, Carly thinks about WHY Mya is acting out and treats her like a person and not a minion. When Mya gets upset towards the beginning, Lance distracts her. Lance also talks to Mya and keeps it real when Mya talks about her parents being dead.

There isn't really much conflict, but that just keeps it sweet. :)

All in all, a cute romantic comedy. I think this would be a really great vacation read (or read in between juggling kiddos) as it's light, but not without heart.
