Thank you to Wanderlust Book Tours for reaching out for a promo for this story and then reaching out to the author when I wanted to review it. I was instantly drawn in by the title then after reading the blurb, I knew I wanted to read this book. Boy, am I glad I did! I love the military romances almost as much as I love romance in general. I don’t get to read as many military romances as I would like, but when they come in, I pounce. Since this is a short romance, it will be difficult not to give anything away, but I will try.
When Max and Chelsea experience the death of their siblings, little do either know that sweet baby Bella that lost both of her parents will be something that neither one of them saw coming.
Max is furious when he finds out about having a niece that he knew nothing about and thinks that Chelsea is only after the family farm. What Max doesn’t realize is that Chelsea is following her deceased sister’s wishes. Talk about fireworks and jumping to conclusions, boy, Max was a pro at that. When he realizes just how wrong he was, he doesn’t know what hit him.
Chelsea knew that she would be raising her niece after her sister’s death and much to her parents arguments against it, she and Bella relocate to be near Bella’s other side of the family. Chelsea get the surprise of her life when she meets Max and he ends up being hateful towards her and Bella. That is until the meeting with the lawyer to discuss Nathan and Val’s final wishes for their daughter.
What happens after that meeting changes everyone involved but the path isn’t easy for them.
