Single mom Vanessa Holt has a daughter she loves, a supportive family, and her art. Having given up on finding true love - if that even exists, which she doubts - she's content to put romance on the back burner. But not everyone agrees. Those nearest and dearest are ready to see Vanessa let down her long blonde hair and have some fun.
To put their grumbling to rest, Vanessa agrees to go on a date with the next man who asks. Luckily for her, that man is Cameron Thomas, her daughter's extremely handsome science teacher. She'd felt a spark of chemistry the first time she'd laid eyes on him. Now she's ready to lay a whole lot more on the sexy bachelor.
But just as things get hot, they also get heavy. When the man who broke Vanessa's heart reappears, her old doubts and fears about love rush to the surface. Will her fresh start with Cameron be over before it's barely begun?

The writing on this story is really good, the narration is excellent but I wanted to stab the heroine and felt sorry for the hero. While this is supposedly a romance, the story focuses more on the relationship between the heroine and her daughter and subsequent family drama. The heroine was hard to like and I had to force myself through the last chapters of this book. The story ends right about the place where the romance would actually start. This book didn't really leave me with a feel-good feeling; more like...huh??
Great narrative, story would have been better if not for the wish washy female stuff at the end. I really wanted there to be more interaction between the mom and new man in her life. Instead, there was so much inner dialogue, there was little room for actual story.
being a single mom I feel Vanessa's story and struggle of moving on and using your child as a crush when you you don't want to face your fears! love this story!
I love the way Barbie writes and only wish she'd write more books soon! Her characters have a voice that I can relate to and believe. I find myself lost in the story. This one is of a single mother and her amazing daughter and the journey back to finding herself as a woman again. Allowing herself to date after a 13 yr hiatus and listening to her daughter along the way=) I would read this book again!
