Review by Barbara
What a fabulous Book. It a type 2 chance story that will have you laughing one minute, your heart breaking the next and hoping beyond hope for a HEA. The author has written a storyline based on everyday, very relatable situations with characters that you can’t help but feel connected to.
Sephrina is a very strong independent woman. Have her world ripped from her years ago leaving her to raise her small son by herself, she has learned to be self sufficient and will never rely on a man to support her. But the path she took to get to this point hasn’t been an easy one. While going to school to get her law degree she started stripping in order to pay the bills. She is proud of the independence and strength stripping has given her as well as the money made has allowed her to give her son a stable life while growing up. Now her son, Jagger, is 18 and about to leave home and head off to college, leaving Seph to starting a new chapter in her life. One night, while out with friends, she meets Drew.
Drew is an ex football player who is also a recovering addict. One night he sees a woman on the dance floor who rocks his world at first glance. But Drew has a lot of past baggage and hangups. He used to women falling at his feet, something Seph doesn’t do. Drew wants to he with her, he knows in his heart she’s the one. But he can’t handle the fact other men she what he wants for his own. But Seph loves her dancing and refuses to change for anyone. Even though she knows in her heart Drew is the love of her life.
The storyline takes you on a wild journey where lifestyles are chaotic and kids and family issues are always popping up. Throw in a crazy ex husband with a new pregnant wife in the mix, money troubles, trust issues and a clashing of strong egos and you have the makings for a fun, flirty sexy read. I fell in love with Drew and Seph and all the supporting characters and I have no doubt you will too. I highly recommend grabbing up this amazing 5 Star Book. You won’t be sorry you did!
