This story was given to me in exchange for an honest review by The Book Enthusiast.
Alexis Bertrand thought that she had it all, a job that she liked and a husband she loved. Sure they had been happier at the beginning of the marriage, things had cooled off a bit now, lately they had been growing apart and not communication as much, but she was still blown away when he announced he wanted a divorce, he is in love with somebody else.
Even more shocking is the news she gets shortly after that- she is pregnant. Her soon to be ex-husband is not happy with the news and encourages her to end the pregnancy. Now she is alone and pregnant. Not the life that she had envisioned for herself. Lucky for her she still has her best friend Kyle DuPont. They have been friends forever and Kyle has always secretly loved her. It is easy for him to fall into the role of protector and friend, to even offer physical comfort when the need arises. And it does often. They have sex in his office, on the fishing boat and at her house. He makes her feel like a woman again. A real woman this time.
But she is unable to trust her feelings for Kyle at this point, how does she emotionally go from loving Bennet to loving Kyle so quickly, and what about her baby. The baby is going to need her and it needs to be her prime goal right now. To focus on herself and the pregnancy. She needs to be able to stand on her own feet. But it feels so good when Kyle takes care of her.
This was a beautiful love story. I really liked how Kyle was able to get a second chance with Alexis after loving her for so long. He ex-husband was certainly a character easy to hate and I thought he was the perfect bad guy. The things he says and does added depth to the story. The ex-mother in law and the new girlfriend were perfectly horrible people as well.
I thought that this story was a nice easy to read romance and I really enjoyed it. I would rate a 4.5/5 and would easily read something by this author again.
