My world is messy and complicated. I’ve had so much taken away from me, and yet, I can’t help but focus on the good. I’ve been given a new lease on life, one that I won’t waste, and with this fresh start comes a surprising new roommate. Vaughn is a single father and the grumpiest man I’ve ever met. He’s irritable and prickly, and at first, seems like he wants to break me. But the more time we spend together, the more I see past his hardened heart to the softness and love he has for his baby girl. Then I realize that the only thing this man is capable of breaking is my heart. When our pasts reemerge and threaten to destroy our future, can we withstand the darkness and hold onto the sunlight?


No one can put a smile on my face except my precious daughter. That is, until I’m forced into the same space as the bold ray of sunshine who is now my roommate. Jude is everything I’m not—he’s optimistic, bubbly, and cheerful. He’s also a distraction I haven’t accounted for when my only goal has been to give my daughter the best life possible. I don’t have time for the pint-sized lover of all things pink who occupies my home and has burrowed his way into my heart. More so, he’s grown to love my daughter and gives my life color where it has been muted for so long. Can I give this sweet man the bright future he deserves when my dark past doesn’t want to let me go?


I loved the word play between the two main characters.  The snarky responses, the flirting and the sassy nicknames. This is a sexy MM romance that deals with following your dreams, single parenthood and secrets. Fun and definitely worth the read.
