I enjoyed this romance. I bought this at a local store and I voluntarily chose to review this story. I've given it a 4.5* rating. This is not for the under 18 readers. The triplets cause a lot of chaos and mayhem, and loss of babysitters. Finding the right person may happen by chance when the triplets respond to a friend. Lots to enjoy in this read.

This was a sweet second-chance story with a little bit of heat. Eight years earlier, a chance encounter between eighteen-year-old Annabel and twenty-one-year-old Logan led to a three-day relationship that had lasting consequences. But Logan was gone before Annabel knew she was pregnant, and she could not reach him. And when she could, she didn't. Cody is seven years old, Logan's biggest little fan and neither knows the truth.

I liked Annabel and Logan. The backstory is a little heartbreaking. They connected quickly and deeply over those three days together, sharing hopes and dreams. Annabel's belief in him did great things for Logan's confidence. Even after such a short time, Annabel dreamed of a future together. Those dreams took a hit when she learned that Logan never wanted children of his own and that nothing would keep Logan in Bear Ridge. Logan's relationship with his father is difficult at best and often emotionally abusive. A late-night phone call from his father that last evening reinforced Logan's need to get away. When Logan left the next morning, he cut all ties with Bear Ridge, including Annabel, going so far as to change his cell number and move several hours away. When Annabel realized she was pregnant, she could not reach him.

As the book opens, Annabel's son tells her that his "My Hero" essay will be on the paper's front page. She has a feeling that her secret is about to come back and bite her. Meanwhile, Logan has a minor injury he has to recover from, and his manager sends him to the Dawson Ranch for that recovery time. He will also meet his special fan. One look at the information in the paper, and Logan has a feeling about that little fan.

Logan and Annabel impressed me with their handling of the revelation. Annabel doesn't make excuses for her actions. She knows she was wrong. Now that the secret is out, she will do her best to smooth the relationship between Cody and Logan. I could feel her nervousness over sharing Cody with Logan and her worry about the future with him in their lives. Be that as it may, she doesn't try to keep them apart, instead including Logan in everything from school pickups to bedtime rituals.

Logan is shocked but understands why she didn't contact him. Though he had never intended to be a father, once he knows about Cody, he is determined to be the best father he can be. The scenes with Logan and Cody are so sweet as they get to know each other. I also loved that Logan has no problem acknowledging Cody as his son to anyone and everyone they meet and that he doesn't let his celebrity overshadow their growing bond. Logan makes an impulsive promise to grant seven of Cody's birthday wishes to make up for the birthdays he's missed. Some of those wishes are steeped in emotions wrapped up in Logan's memories of his life in Bear Ridge. To fulfill those wishes, Logan will have to face those memories.

Complicating matters is the attraction that still sparks between Annabel and Logan. Neither has forgotten the other over the years, and their connection is as strong as ever. Annabel is wary of risking her heart again, especially since Logan makes no secret of his plans to continue his rodeo career. I loved that Annabel understands Logan, what drives him, and doesn't try to change him. She does, however, know that he needs to face his past. I enjoyed how he got a boost in that direction, thanks to Cody. Annabel does her part in easing Logan's way and finds a crucial piece of information to help him. Meanwhile, Logan is at war with himself. Part of him can't wait to return to the rodeo, but another part pushes him toward Annabel and Cody. I loved the ending and seeing how Logan solved his dilemma.

This at times felt as though it needed a little something more going on, something to make it a bit more of a page-turner.

There wasn’t much keeping Shane and Bethany apart, they were nice people who were nice together, they saw most things similarly including their opinion of his mother, so there wasn’t a lot of conflict in their relationship and that’s okay, it’s just with low conflict in the romance it felt like there needed to be a little more story from somewhere else, like maybe further exploring Bethany’s paternity, making that more of a focal point since that was easily one of the more emotionally engaging aspects of this novel.

I did find Shane’s amicable relationship with his ex refreshing when so often divorce is depicted with stereotypical vitriol, I also liked his mother’s arc even if it was a little hurried due to her status as a minor character, and I loved the dogs, Meatball, as well as the others were sweethearts, the author definitely had me invested in their furry little fates.
