My Thoughts 

Having enjoyed the previous two titles in this non-series, I’ll admit that I’ve been specifically looking forward to Ryker’s story. And I’m so glad that I got to read it ❤️

After the (off page) death of her brother and sister-in-law Bryce is the guardian of her three young nieces and trying to figure out how to parent, grieving her family, and trying to keep her head above water when she meets Ryker, the middle Matthews brother. 

Bryce was the perfect partner for Ryker and their stories and trials just combined to make this one really special. 

I loved the importance of mental health in this and, as someone who also has complex PTSD, I appreciated Ryker’s difficulties in expressing his  feelings and his journey through. 

There are triggers here, plenty of them, but Ms. Newton’s writing made them far more palatable to read. 


Thank you to Forever and NetGalley for the DRC!


In this charming romantic comedy, a hometown hero comes to the rescue of a chef unexpectedly left to care for three little girls—who may end up saving him too.

When disaster strikes and chef Bryce Weatherford is given guardianship of her three young nieces, her life goes from cooking with fire…to controlling a dumpster fire. Five‑year‑old Addison refuses to remove her fairy wings, eight‑year‑old Cecily won't bathe, and tween June is majoring in belligerence. With all this chaos, Bryce jettisons hope for a life outside of managing her family and her new job.
It's been years since Ryker Matthews had his below‑the‑knee amputation, yet the phantom pain for his lost limb and Marine career haunts him. To cope, he focuses on his vehicle restoration business. He knows he's lucky to be alive. Yet, “lucky” feels more like “cursed” to his lonely heart.  
When Ryker literally sweeps Bryce off her feet in the grocery store's baby aisle, they both feel sparks. But falling in love would be one more curveball neither is ready to deal with… or is it exactly the change of plans they need?
