Hook, line & sinker. Then he’d walked away and never looked back. Never knew what he left behind. Years later he finally returned to the place where they’d grown up. Met. Fell in love.

But Archer realized his mistake and though it took some time, he was ready to make it right. For everyone involved. And Christmas in Blissful was the perfect setting for magic, romance and a rekindled flame. Can Archer and Ally find a way to let go of the past and reach for a future beyond Christmas Day?

In This Life is an emotionally satisfying read featuring two flawed characters who aren’t nearly as bad as they think. Kathleen was the town prodigy, the girl most likely go out there and kick life’s ass. But things tend to get in the way, for her it was getting pregnant and dropping out of school to raise her adorable little daughter Emma. But never one to let life get her down, Kat makes it work.
Then there’s Nash. Sexy, brooding, grumpy Nash. After finding his father banging the girl he wanted for himself, Nash left town and never came back. At least until a wildfire took the life of his father and stepmother, leaving him sole guardian of his little brother.
In This Life had so many elements that I loved. The geeky girl all grown up, stunning and doesn’t know it. The single parents helping each other out and watching it develop into more. The adorably precocious kids and of course, the sexy but out of his depth new parent. Watching their friendship develop was beautiful but watching it turn to something more for two people who’d been through so much was just fantastic and satisfying!
Kat and Nash were a little hard on themselves, I think. I understood their secrets and why they kept them and never once did I feel the urge to judge them for their decisions. There wasn’t much conflict, for which I was grateful, and the ending left me all warm and fuzzy.
