Story Overview:
This alpha athlete is about to meet his match...

Cameron Shaw knows exactly what he's doing when it comes to coaching high school boys on the football field, but caring for a six-year-old girl is a whole different ballgame. When a gorgeous, highly opinionated woman shows up with his niece in tow and claims he's Piper's new guardian, Cameron's first response is "hell no." But he can't abandon a little girl who just lost her mother....

Audrey Bennett wasn't planning to stick around town, but Piper's gruff, way-too-good-looking-for-his-own-ego uncle clearly needs help. The longer she stays-watching Cameron teach Piper to make pancakes and tie her sparkly pink shoelaces-the harder it is to leave. Especially when he stops arguing and gives Audrey the most toe-curling kiss of her life. But just as she thinks he might be the one, a secret he's been keeping threatens to tear apart their happy little family.
My Review:
Sweet and heartbreaking with a small town romantic vibe...I really enjoyed this one. It definitely helps that I'm a west texas gal where we live by high school football, so everything about Cameron's career resonates with me. 

But beyond that, there is so much to love about this story. The story about Cameron and Dianna's family broke my heart. I hated that they never got the chance to connect, but love that she left Piper in his care...because he needs that connection. Cameron hasn't had an easy life, so for him to be so completely wrapped up in this tiny little girl is awesome. I loved watching him fall in love with her. 

And then there's Audrey. For her to give up this time to make sure that Piper got the situation she needed melted my heart. She has so much love and devotion to this little girl. I couldn't see how she could even consider leaving her, no matter how much Dianna had wanted it. She's in such a hard place...torn between this little girl and her real life which she has to eventually get back to. 

Overall, it was just a fantastic book. I really did enjoy reading it. It was pure entertainment and I can definitely feel good recommending it.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
