I was sucked in to this story by page two. There were several factors in why I related to this story, but mostly I just felt the characters right away. I found this to be beautifully consuming. This is my favorite kind of chick-lit book. It isn't just shallow and silly, it isn't depressing while still being deep and real, it talks about sex without having detailed sex scenes. I find these kinds of books so rarely that I get very excited when I find one.

How far would you go for the best friend who broke your heart? This internationally bestselling novel tells an enchanting tale of life’s most unpredictable loves and heartaches, and the unforgettable bond between a single woman and an extraordinary five-year-old girl. From the moment they met in college, best friends Adele Brannon and Kamryn Matika thought nothing could come between them—until Adele did the unthinkable and slept with Kamryn’s fiancĂ©, Nate. Now, after years of silence, the two women are reuniting, and Adele has a stunning request for her old friend: she wants Kamryn to adopt her five-year-old daughter, Tegan.

Besides the difference in skin color—many will assume that headstrong, impulsive Kamryn is Tegan’s nanny—there’s the inconvenient truth that Kamryn is wholly unprepared to take care of anyone, especially someone who reminds her so much of Nate. With crises brewing at work and her love life in shambles, can Kamryn somehow become the mother a little girl needs her to be?

This was drama in the best way. Not over the top, but still enough out of ordinary life to make it very interesting as a reader. Plus, it is topped off with loveable and real characters.

  1. I have a couple of her books! You know I'm not huge into chick lit but I got into her when I was in England. Let me know if you ever want to borrow one:)
