With Mother’s Day approaching, four women living in a picturesque coastal town discover a second chance at love when they finally find their happily-ever-after partners in this anthology of contemporary romance novellas.
Claire Bishop’s life as an art teacher in Sea Glass Bay is full and rewarding, but her heart longs for a family she’ll never have. When she agrees to help out widower, Sully Vaughn, by taking care of his daughter after school, Sully is concerned his little girl, Lindie, is growing too attached to her favorite teacher. Sully is trying his best to protect his child from the heartache of loss that nearly destroyed him, but he hasn’t taken into account his passion for the dynamic woman—nor Lindie’s determination to lay claim to the perfect mom.
Jazzy Dunbar is enjoying life as a single mom, proving that you don’t have to have a man to have it all. Jeremiah Caldwell, a good friend, made the perfect sperm donor. He’s happy with their “no strings attached” relationship … or is he? He wants to be more than a sometimes-father in baby Caleb’s life. Jazzy doesn’t want to ruin their friendship by allowing their attraction to flare, but when a serious situation threatens, will Jeremiah be able to prove that they can have love and the perfect family?
Single mom Leah Martin needs to find a wedding date for her ex-husband’s wedding. Their son, Owen, is going to be the ringbearer and her attendance is required. But this florist has no time to date around the busy Mother’s Day holiday, which is why she agrees to let her friends set her up for a blind date. Hank DeLeon’s bar shares an alley with Leah’s florist shop, which is the perfect location for a restaurant if she’s willing to relocate. When he’s asked to take her on a blind date, he has to wonder: is this a great chance for a business proposition? Or a once-in-a-lifetime chance at love?
After a corporate restructuring at her accounting firm, Paige Duffy moved north to Sea Glass Bay and opened a handmade candle booth at the coastal town’s popular local craft market. Now her severance is running out and Paige discovers she’s pregnant from a one night stand. Charter boat owner, Gavin Cole, lost his grandfather six months ago, promising him he’d finally pursue his dreams of sailing the open ocean. But when Paige tells him that she’s pregnant with his child, Gavin must decide what adventure he really wants: the one he’s always dreamed of, or the one he never believed possible.
Mom wanted- Anna J. Stewart
Cute love story with a little girl that has enough sass to keep you turning the pages. I really liked Claire she has a big heart willing to just love on those closest to her.
Father wanted- Kayla Perrin
Finding love in the most unconventional way. The only thing I wish about this story was that the author gave more of Jeremiah’s side of the story.
Hero Wanted-Melinda Curtis
Marisol is a sweet mama who is hard not to fall in love with, she just seems to take everyone who she cares for under her wing. Leah is a pistol and speaks her mind, sometimes but only when it matters. Charlie I would like to punch.
Family Wanted-Cari Lynn Webb
Marisol is back in this story just as sweet as can be, being the mother hen to a bunch of friends who either lack a mom or mom is out of the picture. I like Paige she feels like a bit of a free spirit but super grounded and loves her aunts. Gavin seems flighty but also seems unsure of what’s next in life and how to go about grabbing hold and going along for the ride.Overall I really enjoyed these four stories, each one stood out for different reasons but overall it was neat to read about close friendships that mean the world to each person and about making “family” and how family doesn’t always share the same blood. All the books are kept clean read and suitable for all. Well worth the reads!!!
