What starts off hard, turns into a love story for something very common. Single motherhood, divorce, wanting or not wanting kids, and the reputation that follows you no matter what. It all comes together for a truly moving story.
Jordyn doesn’t have time for much else in her life than her son and working two jobs to just break even. Throw in she can barely have a civil conversation with her ex-husband, she hasn’t gone out for a fun time in a long while. But when a man hits on her at a bar and can’t seem to take no or keep his hands to himself, someone steps in and doesn’t exactly charm her, but intrigues her enought to continue the conversation. She knows who he is, but he doesn’t seem to remember her.
Ramsay hasn’t had an easy life and he blames himself for things that really he shouldn’t. We all do this so we can relate to what he carries in his heart. The one good thing in his life is his aunt and uncle, who he gives a lot of credit for dealing with him. A near miss at the alter leads him to believe he is destined to not love nor to be loved. But he is captivated by the woman at the bar he meets and then to watch her being harassed, well, he steps in and doesn’t really know why.
Jordyn is very clear. She has a son and she won’t mess with him while he is one. So this becomes an every other weekend event and I don’t mean they have sex right off either. Ramsay respects everything she does to make her son her priority in life. He never had that and won’t take it away from a kid. Staying away from her isn’t something he can do either. Bringing her coffee at work becomes a highlight for both of them.
But rules are meant to be broken and he meets the son. He meets the father, who he knew in high school…and not in a good way. As Ramsay becomes more of a father to her son than her ex, Rams also becomes the man she falls in love with. Unfortunately, Rams has only told her part of his past and one key piece is missing.
This isn’t a sweet romance, but one that is pushed to reality of divorced parents. How they protect their children, deal with their ex’s and try to find love or not in their life. It’s also about a parent working two jobs to make ends meet, renting a house she never knows if she will be evicted from (he wants to sell it) or when she has to take a day off because her kid is sick or her ex can’t be bothered to be a father at the any given time.
Rams does realize that some of his wounds are healing, and now Jordyn becomes someone he can’t live without.
