Was graciously given this ARC from the author for a fair and honest review.
4 awesome fantastic stars
I will admit when I read the book description I was a little skeptical. Yes I felt sorry for Lizzie in book one but I didn’t know if I would be able to connect with her…..well I was wrong.
First it starts off with Tony. He is a eleven year old runaway that Deena soon discovers is her brother Anthony’s forgotten child. Tak and Deena adopt him but they struggle to all fit into the roll of “happy family”.
“Well, he’s your son now. For better or worse. And as I’ve found, we often must get through the worst with ours sons to enjoy the best.”
Meet Lizzie Hammond. She is beautiful, she is moody, she is a prostitute and a drug addict. She is also Deena sister and Tak and Kenji’s sister in law
Now we know Kenji Tanaka from book one but he was just a kid. He is still struggling to fit into the architectural world. When Lizzie walks in his office one afternoon he decides to ask her to the movies and had no idea he would be a addict too. Addicted to her.
After Lizzie gets out of rehab Kenji insists that she move in with him. Their romance blossoms BUT yep you guessed it…the family hates it! You will love reading how these two work it out.
You get plenty of past characters in this book as well as feel Deena’s struggles of dealing with her past demons.
Love the character development in this one. Will look forward to future reads from Shewanda.
