What a heartwarming debut from #Shameless18 author Kelsie Rae. Liv and Luke have such a cute dynamic and the way Kelsie writes their interactions makes you feel as if you are in the room with them. Liv loses her husband Adam right in the beginning. They were high school sweethearts and Luke was Adam's best friend. After his death, Liv finds out she is pregnant and Luke steps in to be there for her but the feelings he has been keeping inside all these years can no longer be contained. I loved how sweet and careful he is with her throughout the book. You can feel in your heart how hard he is trying to deny his love for her and it is emotional and heartbreaking at times. Liv is so funny and sassy. She made me laugh quite a few times and I think it's beautiful the way she carries herself. Overall, a really sweet second chance romance that you will not be able to put down!

"And now I'm going to taste you, like I've wanted to since the first time I saw you."

"And this little stretch mark?" His finger lightly grazes the line. "It's the most beautiful reminder I will ever have of the miracle you created. I might not be this little boy's dad, but I will love him every single day of my life. And that means that I will love this little line, and any others you get in the next two months, more than you will ever know."

From The Publisher


Liv had her life all figured out until it was shattered by the loss of her husband. He left her a piece of him she hadn’t planned on. How can she pick up the pieces when she doesn’t know where to begin?


I never imagined my life would end up this way. I thought I had everything figured out until I got the call my husband was killed in a car accident and that my period was late.

I was never supposed to see her again. That was the deal. Leave her and my ex-best friend behind to finally mend my broken heart and move on with life. And it was going smoothly, too. That is, until said ex-best friend dies and his wife, Liv, lets a secret slip at his funeral that I can’t possibly ignore.

I read. I create. I get in trouble. That is me in a nutshell. I live in a snarky, artistic, eclectic world where BDSM and Dark Erotica are high on my reading list. I yearn for a really raw, gritty book where the lead guy/girl is more like a villain and I am left completely mindf*cked. The more the usual lines of morality are blurred, the better. I am an Alice in Wonderland Freak, an Edgar Allan Poe lover and an ocean addicted mermaid. I like originality when it comes to my books. The dirtier, the better. I am here to Discover, Share and Obsess. Join me, will you?
