My 4th book this year.)
The Garrett family are loud, open, untidy and the number of children keep growing. Scraping by with a hardware store they have a roof over their heads and food on the table but anything else must be earnt through hard work.
Samantha lives next door. The rich girl with a trust fund and everything just falls into place in her life. That’s what people think of her. But her life is far from perfect. She works hard, studies hard but family life is just a show for the rest of the world. Samantha’s mother is running for senator but the man behind her is a very questionable character.
Samantha finds watching the Garrett family calming and soothing. The inevitable happens and she is finally noticed by a Garrett boy. Her life begins to bloom as she is accepted by the family.
All is well until something happens that will destroy Samantha but she needs to decide which family is more important to her.
What a wonderfully paced book. I really enjoyed Samantha and Jase’s relationship. Watching first love, reliving memories and feelings. Perfectly portrayed.
The Garrett’s are a wonderful family with their family troubles but they stick together and have a strong bond.
I would definitely recommend this book to other readers just for the relationship growth between Samantha and Jase. Beautifully written story.
