This is not spoiler freeThis was fine, a cute romance that had some stuff that i didn t like, but honestly it wasn t the worst and i was enjoying myself reading it, until that last 20% that isi wan t planning on writing a review because i went into this just to have a good time reading a romance, so i didn t take any notes or bookmark anything and because of that i don t remember a lot of the things that i didn t like and now i can t be bothered to go back and look for all the little things that bothered me but i m just going to point out the things i can remember off the top of my head.We hear about Luc s the MC dimples every goddamn two seconds Really i can be a fan of dimples but i m not going to like it if it s shoved in my face this much, like okay we get it he has dimples.Luc really compared their skin color by thinking and i quote The difference is crazy Like whole milk next to maple syrup. i really think the whole describing skin color as food thing really needs to stop.But really what took the cake for me was the last 20% of the book first of all the condom broke while they were having sex, which is fine but Luc really had the audacity to lie to Millie and tell her everything s okay and that nothing happened and just came back to bed and didn t tell her about it Then he met with his friend the day after and was debating whether or not he should.His friend awesome advice was that if he loved her, he shouldn t tell her and wait to see if she becomes pregnant then just marry her Now Luc is so very tempted to do just that but being the gentleman that he is, he decides to tell her because she had no choice in her life since her parents died so she should have a say in this.But wait wait it turns out she wants the baby anyway so it s fine right which is something because for all the book Millie tries to not get involved with Luc because she doesn t want to get pregnant or have a baby until all her siblings are grown up This is all the conflict in this book that stops them from being together So someone explain to me why she would get upset when he ASKED her if she WANTS to get plan B i mean she was the one to tell him again and again that she doesn t want a baby right now if this sounds like it might be something you like, go ahead and check it out, people liked it so maybe i m the only one that didn t. 5 lindabeautiful stars You know that warm cozy feeling Like when it s cold outside and you re snuggling on the couch, wrapped in the softest blanket, in front of a fire, sipping your favourite beverage Yeah, that feeling Well, reading this book made me feel like that, all comfy cozy and wanting to stay snuggled down all dayI feel what it means to have Luc s love.It s big I can t touch it or see it, but I know it s big And it s solid Solid enough to hold my weight And my fears And it s warm God, it s warm So warm, I want to draw it up inside me I want to be the one with itMillie was such a great heroine I loved how strong she was, taking care of her brothers and sister after the unexpected death of their parents She was also witty, brilliant, and caring She had created a very small bubble around herself, only allowing her siblings and a few co workers in, because of a family curse that causes all of the women in it to have anuncanny potential for procreationand it s one thing that she can t add to her life at the moment while she s already trying to be both parents to her three younger siblings It was entertaining to watch her fight her attraction to Luc.Luc is my new book boyfriend He is so gentle yet strong, insightful yet playful, and a hard worker yet knows how to enjoy life I loved how he just immersed himself in with the Millie and her family like he was always meant to be thereHow is it that he know exactly what I need what we all need every time Whether we need to smash some tile or kick the soccer ball in the yard or eat chicken tortilla soup.Or be kissedThere was so much to love about this book The banter and bickering between our MCs and between them and their families, all of the emotions, both happy and sad, amusing meddlesome family members, cute kids and a giant bear of a dog My only gripe really it s minor because it was just a handful of lines was that I m not fluent in Spanish, and had to stop my reading a few times to translate certain dialogue It wasn t until halfway through the book that the dialogue was instantly translated by the characters A huge Thank You to Stephanie Fournet for providing me with the opportunity for my first ever ARC for review This was my first read by Stephanie and I loved her writing I will definitely be going back to read her other works.Another big thanks for by buddy reader Melanie, I always enjoy our conversations and your insight when reading 3 You can read her fabulous review here.
