Before I begin:

Cohabitation is going to be fun πŸ‘πŸ½ Upon my initial read through the synopsis, sounds fun πŸ‘πŸ½ but not entirely new. Part of the fun in participating in book clubs is the discussion 😁

Chapter 5

Check in at the beginning of Chapter 6 instead πŸ˜‚ I feel for Olivia πŸ₯² She lost her husband and gaurdianship for her son was given to a stranger. The annimosity between Jack and Olivia is believable, intense, and fun πŸ˜‚ Both Olivia and Jack find each other attractive, so Im just waiting for the moment they get together 😍 Looking forward to more Henry-Jack interactions πŸ‘πŸ½ This seems promising! Love widow romances with a child 😍😍😍

Chapter 10

The reason I love widow romances is that when a bond forms between the interest and the kid 😍 That’s fun to read! πŸ˜‚ I’m glad Olivia is starting to see it too!

Chapter 14

Understand Olivia’s opinion about henry getting a dog 🐢 They are cute 😍 but take work.

First kiss 😘 finally happens πŸ˜‚ Caregiving scenes with a twist πŸ‘πŸ½ Olivia 😍 more after seeing Jack with Henry.

Like that, me being ahead is no longer true πŸ˜‚πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

Chapter 18

Olivia grows more and more attracted to Jack 😏 Zolivia not in mourning clothes was a sign Olivia was becoming more and more ready πŸ˜‚ Other stuff happened but this was the most prevalent. Excited for tomorrow’s chapters πŸ‘πŸ½ I think we’ll start to get answers to our many questions

Kisses become more common between Jack & Olivia (did I miss it until now?)

Jack with Henry still β™₯️ then we find out how he is with orphans?! β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️ Got to admire I enjoy seeing that (and so does Olivia 😏)

Chapter 19 + epilogue

Olivia, Jack, and Henry are their own family ❀️ and it’s beginning to feel that way (Olivia sees it! πŸ‘πŸ½) With her concern with appearrances, she’s the one to convince πŸ€” i feel Olivia’s approval and consent is important to the story, but Jack drives the story. Sound right?!

Jack’s parentage reveal… I still don’t know πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ about it πŸ€” Like I didn’t see it coming, and was dark like another whole book can explore that but would I read that? πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ

The wedding scene was quick and didn’t feel too important (but I loved loved it 😁)


Epilogue was all Jack and was satisfying, but shouldn’t Olivia be in it too? In that sense, deviated from the norm πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ I dig that usually. I have no qualms so I’m okay with it.
