I was laughing pretty much from the beginning all the way until the end. My heart broke for Faith a couple times in this book. I’ve never been a single mom. But I was raised by one. And growing up it was pretty hard. Faith’s main goal was to better her life for her daughter Joey. And I felt this book did a good job conveying that.
I loved everything about her. Her character was portrayed perfectly. She was all over the place. She had several jobs to keep her afloat. She was always tired. And she had the best attitude when certain situations presented itself…(c*ck rings!lol) she was a little too trusting. She always tried to find the best in people. Giving them the benefit of the doubt. And she took chances. Sometimes they didn’t always work. But she tried. She loved her daughter with everything she had.
That little girl had me laughing throughout this book! All her phases she went through. Oh my gosh. She was just too much! When she committed to something… she really committed to it! Just like her mom. She put her everything in the things she did… to the people she loved. That little girl had such an big and open heart. To be quiet honest. She reminded me a lot of my niece. My sister is a single mom raising her daughter and my niece would say and do things to crack me up. She has a very wild and out there personality and imagination…. Just like Joey. And I loved that!
“The genetic contributor”. He turned out to be a royal A hole! I thought in the beginning that things could maybe work between Faith and Cole. He seemed like a good father. Flawed… but seemed to go somewhat go out of his way for his daughter.
But… nope. He turned out to be the worst!
I couldn’t believe how far he went towards the end.
Faith’s best friend Natalia was not always to my liking. She had a strong personality. She had a I know best attitude. And instead of talking with Faith she was always talking at Faith. I really had wished that Faith would have said something to her. And in a way set her straight. Because no matter what’s going on in your life. You’re supposed to feel comfortable going to your best friend for everything. And Faith couldn’t. Natalia wasn’t a bad person. But I felt she need a friend adjustment.
Omg! Did I love that old lady! The things that would come out of her mouth! “scoochy coochy”, “weenie beanie”! LOL
She lived a full life. She was so open. Never letting things get her down. She truly was always there for Faith. Giving her words of advice. Being there when Faith needed a shoulder to cry on. And helped her with Joey. She never judged Faith. Just gently nudged her in a certain direction.
Well he had a type A personality. Very uptight. Never letting anything get past him. Not flexible at all. So it went against everything in his soul to hire a woman like Faith. She crashed into his life. Shook it up. Made his perfect world unbalanced. She really brought the best out of him. She softened his hard edges. Took him out of his comfort zone. She was his “beautiful mess”. He fought his feeling and tried to stay true to how he believed he should live his life. But… once Faith entered his life. Things could never go back to the way they were. But not only did Faith break down his walls. Joey did too! She had him wrapped around her little finger. She broke down so many walls. Had him thinking about things he never thought he would be thinking of.
I wish there was more at the end of this story. And maybe there will be with the niece?? (Hopefully!!) I just didn’t want it to end. Faith and Joey definitely got their Disney story book ending!
“Yes, our love story had all the elements of the perfect fairy tale, but instead of a fairy godmother, we had a chain smoking, spitfire grandma who didn’t need a magic wand to create a happily ever after. Instead, she used her domineering stubborn ways to make it all come together perfectly…and I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

Ever since I can remember, I have always enjoyed Creative Writing. There was always something about being able to travel to a different place or become a different person with just the stroke of a pen – or in today’s world a touch of the keyboard. I am the author of The Exception To The Rule, An Unplanned series, Drowning In Love, A Cry for Hope, A Will To Change, Blind Side of Love, Three of a Kind series, Easy Silence, A Right to Remain & Keepin’ the Faith.
My life is not as interesting as my books or the characters in them, but then again whose life is? I’m a mom of twin teenage boys, a crazy Border Collie and a cat with an identity crisis! I guess you can say writing is my form of Calgon!
Thanks for taking the time to learn about my books and me! If you decide to read them (and I hope you do!) please be sure to go on and review it for me – yes, even if you don’t like it!
