The Edens #2
By Devney Perry
Memphis Ward arrives in Quincy, Montana, on the fifth worst day of her life. She needs a shower. She needs a snack. She needs some sanity. Because moving across the country with her newborn baby is by far the craziest thing she’s ever done.
But maybe it takes a little crazy to build a good life. If putting the past behind her requires a thousand miles and a new town, she’ll do it if it means a better future for her son. Even if it requires setting aside the glamour of her former life. Even if it requires working as a housekeeper at The Eloise Inn and living in an apartment above a garage.
It’s there, on the fifth worst day of her life, that she meets the handsomest man she’s ever laid eyes on. Knox Eden is a beautiful, sinful dream, a chef and her temporary landlord. With his sharp, stubbled jaw and tattooed arms, he’s raw and rugged and everything she’s never had—and never will. Because after the first worst day of her life, Memphis learned a good life requires giving up on her dreams too. And a man like Knox Eden will only ever be a dream.
“Oh my heart, 5 stars”
My heart hurt for Memphis right away. She’s a new sleep deprived mother whose baby has colic. I felt that down to my soul. She’s moved to a new town to start over and she immediately meets Knox. He’s grumpy but hot. Memphis doesn’t have time for a guy in her life, but Knox doesn’t give her much of a choice.
Knox doesn’t want the woman staying on his property. He wants nothing to do with her baby. But he does. Something about them calls to him and he will stop at nothing to get them.
This single parent romance just hit a little bit different, and I loved it. You also get a piece of the Eden’s (Knox’s family) and you can’t help but fall in love with them as well. If small town romances are your thing, look no further. Perry has you covered.
