Skylar has a boyfriend, but he is never around. When her father asks her to step in and take care of her half sisters kids, Skylar is not sure what to do. Her family is a mess and she had never met her sister, she is on a fast track in her career and adding three children is a huge commitment. It drive her boyfriend out and quickly makes him an ex but she finds comfort with Matt. Matt is supportive and offers Skylar advice, but he also wants to be with Skylar. Skylar has had a life where men always leave, can she trust Matt to protect her heart.
At times a little melodramatic, but overall I thought this was a good story. Matt has one part of the story that I kind of wished they had had a bigger conversation about but it gets resolved. Liked both characters and will go back to check out other books in this series.
