Publisher's Summary

Sometimes it’s the little things in life that make you appreciate what you have.  

There are lots of things that brighten Joel’s life. His three-year-old daughter, Evie, is one. His close relationship with her mother, his best friend from university, is another. Joel’s boyfriend, Dan, adds spice to his child-free nights, and Joel is pretty happy with how things are. Then one cold and rainy night, everything changes. 

Joel’s life is turned upside down when he becomes a full-time dad to Evie, and his previously carefree relationship with Dan cracks under the strain. Meeting Liam, who acts as if getting hurt isn’t a foregone conclusion, shakes Joel to the core. Their attraction is mutual, and Liam makes no secret of how serious he is about Joel. But Joel is wary. He tells himself he’s keeping Liam at a distance for Evie’s sake, when really, he’s protecting his own heart. 

Taking a chance on this new relationship with Liam may seem a small step - a little thing - but is it one Joel can take after losing so much already?

sweet angsty romance

This story is very angsty but I love angst so that was not an issue for me.
I loved all f the characters, especially Evie and I really felt Joel's emotions, but the storyline for me was a bit slow. at 40 percent Dan is still the love interest and the relationship seems to be going nowhere. Don't get me wrong I even liked Dan and of course, figured they would work through it but then Liam came into the picture and that too was a bit drawn out.
This is a very good story with amazing characters ( I love stories with kids), A story of life and has a realistic feel. If you like well-developed characters, angst, British stories ( I love them), children, and a slow burn but romantic story this is for you.
I listened to the audio and loved the narration. He had a smooth voice, loved the accent that felt perfect for the story and kept me involved in the book.

Well Written Journey

This is the story of single father father Joel during a difficult part of his life and the people on the journey with him. It's not set up like a standard romance in that the 2nd MC doesn't factor in significantly until half way through the book. The 2nd MC, Liam, is a really great character and the ending is happy, but the story isn't really about him & Joel. What the book IS about is all Joel's relationships, and how they/he change enough to develop relationship w/ the 2nd MC. The narration is well done, w/ a variety of British accents & you can always tell who's speaking. I wish the story had gone longer & expanded on life w/ Joel & Liam. But if you let go of the standard romance structure & just enjoy the journey its a worthwhile book! 3 stars for it as a romance, 5 stars for the overall story
