Christina has not had the best childhood. Having been raped by her father and betrayed by her mother, she's convinced that starting a family of her own would be a disaster. So, simply, she's decided not to. Here's the catch--though she doesn't want her own kids, she loves her godson more than anything--something Andres (her boyfriend) just doesn't get (things are a bit sketch bc the father of her godson happens to be her ex-fiance). So when Andres starts to hint at wanting to get married and start a family, it's time to freak out, freeze up and not know what to do! So Andres takes action and, against his heart's feelings, walks out on her--what's he doing if they don't want the same things in life? Christina, not a stranger to betrayal, takes Andres' break-up as another one of the crappy cards she's been dealt in life. Then things start to get better (or stranger?) when a stranger pops up into her life claiming to be her biological mother. With nothing left to lose, Christina jumps into her car and goes to meet and spend some time with her "new family". Will this experience change her for the better? Read to find out :)
Definitely one of the better books I've read in the last few weeks...so much so, I stayed up until 4am because I just had to finish it! I'm paying for that dearly now and I'm sure I will be pretty damned tired around 6pm tonight lol. Andres and Christina have a really intense, passionate affair going on. They may be a new relationship but it is not a light one. Christina and Andres both have their insecurities that come into play big time during the novel. It actually derails their relationship for a bit. The lessons they learn as the story progresses brings them back together but not until after you get quite a few heart-aching moments. I'm not going to lie--I shed a few tears here and there! The characters were well developed and the story is pretty meaty. I'm off to find the other two books in this series now!
