Can two wounded people fall in love with the gully of grief that lies between them or will they just be co-parents?
This was a great little read. I enjoyed the story and the characters. I thought that the idea of Angela being a stripper was definitely something I hadn’t read lately. Angela and Alex’s budding relationship was really well written even if it was a bit fast. I personally would have enjoyed a bit more back story of their childhood around each other. I think that would have given everything a bit more depth. For a quick read and a sexy love story it was a good one. It is definitely worth a read if you are in the mood for strippers, sex, pregnancy and love.
