Aurora Rose Reynolds comes a flirty romantic comedy of big love and second
promises, a divorce, and a well-deserved settlement that’s paid her way to
Manhattan. She has a new home under renovation, a new job, and a do-over as a
happy “single in the city”—until she meets an architect with designs on more
than her beams. He’s also a devoted single dad, a great cook, and has dark
lashes to die for. Too good to be true. Now all Courtney can do is whisper, Oh
no, not again.

Courtney and Lucas are basically cut from the same cloth. Both had failed marriages and are hesitant to jump into a new relationship. It’s only more complicated because Lucas has a daughter that he has to think about. I like when stories have children because it adds an element that can alter the decisions that are made for the characters. This one is no different.
Lucas quickly became one of my favorite characters that Reynolds has written. He has that alpha male quality that we have come to know and love from her characters, but because of his daughter he has a softer side that he lets only Courtney see. He knows that he needs to do right by his daughter so he struggling with what he wants as a man and what he needs to do as a father. And Reynolds did an amazing job at playing both sides of the line.
This book is not like the other books that Reynolds has written before. There is a love story in here, but there isn’t a whole lot of love scenes. It’s a different change of pace and I liked that she focused more on developing the relationship between Lucas and Courtney rather than just having a bunch of love scenes. Don’t get me wrong, I love them as much as the next person, but I did enjoy getting to know these characters.
