Dear Past Me,
Future You here, coming to offer a little advice: hang on for dear life. This summer is going to be a wild one. I know what you’re thinking: Life’s going so well! I don’t have a care in the world! Wrong. That culinary career you love so much? It’s about to go up in smoke, and your boyfriend? Yeah …he’s a goner too. If only love were as simple as, say, actually adding yourself to the lease agreement so you don’t suddenly find yourself loveless, jobless, and homeless!
Did your five-year plan include moving back in with your family and sharing a bed with your Nonna? No? Well, hate to break it to you…it’s exactly as traumatizing as it sounds.
Have you had enough? Too bad. Buckle up—it gets worse. Your new boss is a professional baseball player, and he’s hot, like really hot , but you’ll pretend not to notice because he’s a single dad and it feels wrong to ogle him in front of his innocent child. Unfortunately, he thinks you’re sexy as hell too. Unrequited love is one thing; mutual off-limits pining destined to explode in the worst of ways? What could go wrong… wrong … wrong … (That’s me fading out because you have to take it from here, kid. Good luck! Don’t screw this up for me.)
Your future (wiser) self

Over the last few years R.S. Grey books have been a bit hit and miss for me, so I was delighted with how much I enjoyed this book, particularly as I don’t normally love single dad romance books.
Chloe who is our main female character was so likable. I loved her sense of humour, and her huge Italian family were also highly amusing. Luke (main male character) was ok. Nothing super special about him but he was likable enough.
I liked the slow burn relationship between Chloe and Luke, there was lots of pining and I did think the pacing was spot on. I really liked Lukes sister and I can’t wait to read her book.
The only small negative is that the ending did feel a little rushed and abrupt but we are getting a book from Lukes sisters POV in the summer so I’m hoping that’s the reason why.
Great light-hearted read with a little bit of spice.
My Rating: 4/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟
