Contemporary romance lovers, don't miss "When You Knew".
I just adore the way Gentry is with Colt. She could have easily given him up and left him to the care of her brother, Hunter and his wife, Sara but she didn't. Instead she chose to raise her son how she saw fit and it wasn’t easy. Not only do you have poor Colt suffering from colic but you have the rest of her family trying to put their two cents in as well. She’s so strong and I admire her greatly. When life knocks her down she gets right back up and keeps going.
Ian is interesting. The dynamic between him and Gentry when he came on scene was scorching and I shipped them immediately. He’s an EMT who helped Gentry when she was in a tight spot and now is back in her life due to the concern of her brother. Ty was another interesting character that I wanted to know more about. I loved seeing him interact with Colt and how Gentry tried her best to make him feel like he was apart of the family. She really wanted to get to know him and spend time with him, which I thought was great. The relationship between Hunter and Gentry left me wanting more. It also made me realise that I missed a couple things.
"When You Knew" is not the first book in The Cabots series, but the third. Even though there was stuff that I missed, the author did a great job not leaving me hanging. It did not take away from the story line and in fact made me want to hunt up the first two books and see what’s going on.
I enjoyed reading "When You Knew" and look forward to seeing what else is going on with Gentry and her family in the future.
At the end of "When You Knew" you get to read an excerpt from "The Memory of You", which is the first book in the new series Sanctuary Sound.
An unlikely couple must decide what truly defines family.
Gentry Cabot’s rebellious life comes to a screeching halt when a one-night stand leads to a sobering new reality: motherhood. Exhausted and overwhelmed, the former wild child struggles to raise an infant on her own. After a lifetime of feeling like the odd Cabot out, Gentry knows that what her son needs most is family. For his sake, she plans to rebuild bridges with them, but first she needs a little help on the home front.
Humanitarian worker Ian Crawford has devoted his life to service. Forced to temporarily return stateside, he’s eager to head back to Haiti to expand the nonprofit he just founded in his late father’s honor. He can’t do that without money, so when Gentry offers a hefty paycheck for a short-term gig as a live-in nanny, he can’t afford to say no. Ian expects to deal with a barrage of privileged problems. What he doesn’t expect is how quickly being a makeshift father transforms him.
Despite his growing attachment to Gentry and her child, Ian still has his dreams, and Gentry wants a full-time dad for her son. When the baby’s father reenters the picture, will Gentry and Ian embrace the family they’ve formed or end up worlds apart?
