I really enjoyed this story as a quick, well written story. It would’ve been higher rated, however, I have to admit that the only thing that was quite memorable about the book to me is Harry’s occupation.
There is a sweet, building romance mixed in with a bit of construction and work on either side. I like the fact that being a single dad didn’t really make an impact since so many times its a deal breaker or changes a budding relationship.
Overall, it was a really smooth read that was enjoyable. However, I enjoy a bit more turmoil or specifically something memorable in the story.
