I liked the book, it was sweet. Both the hero and heroine are single divorced parents to eleven year old girls who are best friends. Both of them were burnt badly and have no intention of marrying again.
Their first meeting is not great, the heroine comes off with the impression that he is a bad parent and he thinks she is a crazy bag lady. The mis-conceptions are soon cleared up and both of them become wise to the plans of their daughters to get them together.
They decide they don't want to but still start dating deciding to keep it light but it isn't. There were moments the heroine acted irrationally especially at the party but it was because she was having flashbacks to her womanizing husband.
The proposal with the pipe and all was great too.
A sweet read.
