A touching diversion in the next Calendar Boys book. Previous books were sassy and steamy but Nicole Goodin has shown beautiful diversity in her writing style by delivering a much deeper and more touching story for Luke and Mia.
Mia is left to raise her son solo after her husband Try is killed on deployment. His best mate Luke was the medic who cradled him till the end and promised to watch over Troy’s wife and unborn son.
So.... enter the feels for this one but a stunningly beautiful story of love, hope and resilience. A diversion but none the less a great story in this series. Still plenty of sexual chemistry between Luke and Mia and little Joe is just such a cute part of a sweet story.
Mr March was a sweet, and a beautiful read! Mia lost her husband in the Military then just had a baby, Toby's BF Luke who was in the Military as well, takes care of Mia and baby Joe, to falling in love with Mia! Incredible story and ending!
