My Review

Thanks to Prism book tours for the book in exchange for a honest review.

Janie and Aiden didn't have the best encounter when he first moved to town. Trying to make sure her son didn't get stung and save the Boston Cream Pie that was for their celebration was her main priorities. Not the bee. Janie is doing the best she can but her family is still mourning the loss of her husband three years ago. This cake, is important to the night. Aiden doesn't make a great impression and vise versa. Janie is finally starting to get her head above water, and start to move on. Aiden is a brainy guy so he doesn't have the tact that most people do. She has to tolerate him because he's her sister-in-law's brother, that didn't mean she had to like him.

Aiden is ready for a relaxing time in the small town Rankins Alaska. He's there to study the bees and Janie perplexes him. She's just a mom. Yeah he said that, JUST a MOM. Sometimes single men have no clue really what moms do. Anyway, his sister wants him to do an interview with the local paper and Janie is the reporter that would do it. Needless to say Aiden is just there to study the bees and enjoy the down time.  When he starts to get to know Janie and sees that there is more to her story, he starts to feel more. 

Janie is closed off and really she has her reasons. Aiden comes in and hes just a mess but he gets to her, and he is great with her boys. She starts to realize that she could live life again, maybe just maybe with Aiden. I was a little put off with Aiden at first but he ended up redeeming himself. A lot! Janie learned to see beyond their pain and see that sometimes an outsider can see things that you can't when you're in the thick of things. I think you all would enjoy this feel good romance. It is a part of a series but I did not feel like I was missing anything. Leave the author some love in the form of a review!
