There are certain authors that can evoke a FEEL out of the shrewdest of readers, they paint a picture with words so vibrant that you feel as if you are actually in their world even if only for a short time. You exist in it. You breathe it. You live it. You COAST.
Opening the pages to begin the journey of Josh and Tommy I had braced myself for the onslaught of feelings that were going to be thrust upon me..and of course Ms. McLean didn’t disappoint there. The hardships this young, responsible, never say quit dad faced right out of the gates seal your love and devotion for him. You are rooting for this young team with a fierceness that is unmatched. A helping hand…a life found…a new family forms…and quiet emerald eyes in a window reflect a future seen.
Becca hasn’t had it easy, she silently struggles with every detail, experience and daily task that comes her way. Until Tommy, a young boy that likes her for her..part of the shell cracks and allows entry to two young men that hold the key to more. You fall in love with her quiet strength, devotion and want the three of them to cross the finish line hands locked together in victory “firetruck” everyone else.
This story at the end of the day is about a young man that knows his future is his son…he holds strong in being the dad he once had, a hero, even at life’s toughest moments Josh puts his son first and that is amazing.
**This is a stand-alone BUT I strongly suggest you read Where The Road Takes Me first…not that you have to but you NEED to…it is just a have to kind of thing..**
