‘That was Yesterday’ is Max and Kate’s story. If you haven’t had a chance to read ‘Yesterday is Gone’ which is Jessie and Jules story I highly recommend it as it gives you inside to some of the important characters.
Max had a rough upbringing but he never let that keep him from succeeding in life, with the help from Jessie and Jules he was able to succeed at whatever he put his mind to, being a star college football player, A US Marine, even a dad...
Kate knew she had to help Finn and being the stubborn, sassy, kindhearted woman she is she didn’t stop even when her job was in jeopardy. Making the one phone call to Max that literally turned both their lives upside down.
Thank you Heidi for writing another successful and enjoyable book filled with Hot male Alpha-ness and an emotional roller coaster... I look forward to what you bring out next.
There was a lot to like about this book. There was also a lot to not like about this book.
First off, I liked the basis of the story. I loved Finn and Kate. I also love Jules and Jesse, again.
But, there was so much of the details, big details, that were skimmed over. Max’s service, what happened there - it seemed kind of thrown in just because.
And here’s some spoilers:
- Max’s custody battle. There was none, but it was built up to some big thing.
- how max and Kate’s relationship developed. It didn’t really, it just kind of happened because that’s what was supposed to happen.
- the whole thing with Ally and Kate.
- everything that happened with Steven. Again it was built up to be some big point of drama, but it finished with a drip, not a bang.
I really wanted to love this book. I love the family but the story felt rushed and just skimmed over. It was a bit disappointing to be honest, sorry.
I voluntary reviewed an advance reader copy of this book

Jessie and his wife, Jules, adopt Max. With their love, support and his talent in football, Max shines in high school and college. He’s hard to stop on that field, but it all comes to a halt when Max finds his long-term girlfriend in bed with a teammate. Max is devastated and has to get away. He leaves school, leaves football and joins the Marines.
He has no idea that Alley, the cheating girlfriend, is carrying his son … not until six years later. And to makes matters worse, his son, Finn, is suffering the same kind of abuse that Max himself, suffered as a child. Alley is a druggie and will do anything for her next fix.
Finn … sweet precious Finn, is a special child, in more ways than one. Here is where this story takes off and pulls at your heartstrings. Max no longer is that struggling, pushover of a young boy. This Marine knows how to fight and knows how to win. He wants his son and nothing can stop him from getting Finn and bringing real love into Finn’s world.
This is a stand alone book but characters from 'Yesterday Is Gone' play important roles here too. You get to ‘see’ how life has changed for them.
💕 Jessie, Jules, Cody, Whit and more are here … you get to see that a real, loving family is more than DNA.
❣️ Kate ….. the teacher every child needs. She puts her job in jeopardy by finding Max and telling him he has a son who is in danger. Max knows a good thing when he sees it and he definitely sees Kate. After all, she turned his world upside down in a very good way.
🤯 Gilley …. wonder if he liked his introduction to Karma?
🧒🏼 Whit …. sweet, innocent Whit is now a teenager. I do hope she gets her own story in this series. The bonus chapter teases us to want a ‘Whit’ book…. gotta know what happened there.
Now that I’ve absorbed the first two stand alone books in this series, I’ve got to read the next one featuring Cody. Anxious to find out exactly what is Cody’s story in ‘Yesterday Is Ours’?
I was so glad to hear from Jessie, Jules and Whit (Yesterday Is Gone). I loved them. Oh and Jack too. Even though he kinda stayed behind the scenes. Emma (Jessie and Jules's 2nd daughter) sorta stole the show. The antics between Emma and Finn were hilarious and i loved their relationship. Even though they are technically aunt and nephew. They acted more like siblings. They were close in age.
I really liked this story. It was heartwarming and sincere. I liked Max and Kate together. They had a beautiful relationship and it made me smile. I'm glad there was no drama or extreme turmoil. It was written extremely well and I loved the premise of the story. I'm saddened that all the evil Max had to endure when he was younger. I am so glad he met Papa Jack (Yesterday Is Gone). I honestly think he saved Max. I'd highly recommend this book. I thought it was really sweet and I felt the love written into it.
The Yesterday Series, Book 2
By: HJ Bellus
Narrated by: Heather Edwards, Mark Whalbeck
This is a great, heartfelt story, it grabbed my attention and my heart and captivated both from start to end. This is Max and Kate’s story, Max was introduced in the 1st book in the series “Yesterday is Gone”. He was a good kid who came from a terrible home situation. His life improved when Jessie and Jules took him in. Max is an adult now and after catching his girlfriend with drugs and then cheating on him he decides to enlist to serve the country and leaves the small town behind. Five years later he receives a call that will change his life forever. Kate is a new teacher in town, she is kind hearted, looks out for her students and goes above and beyond to help them. I loved how caring she is and how awesome she was with Finn. I thought she and Max were great together and for each other. The author takes you in to the past giving you glimpses of what Max had to endure in his childhood, it is just heartbreaking. And I love how the author shows just one act of kindness can make all the difference, in Max’s life it started with Papa Jack, then Jessie and it is what Kate did for Finn. I highly recommend this book, it contains topics that are realistic and very moving, there is also drama, angst, twists and some suspenseful moments that will take you to the edge of your seat. It was nice to see the characters from the 1st book too. HJ Bellus, thank you for another great story and emotional rollercoaster ride.
I listened to the Audible edition, Heather Edwards & Mark Whalbeck did a great job narrating and performing the voices of all the characters. They brought the characters to life, gave each their own voice and personality. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for this great listen🎧
