Then his ex-wife shows up on his doorstep 9 months pregnant and addicted to everything there is. He takes her in, pays her hospital bills, buys her clothes, puts his life on hold and the baby is born. Now he is stuck with a big medical bill, his ex and her baby by some guy she was living with who, by the way, threw her out.
Then he starts making some headway with the rich girl but she wants him to quit trying to save the world and get on with his life. So, he wakes up one morning and the ex has let town, left the baby, and stole his suped up street rod. DOES he call the police and turn her in for abandonding the baby and stealing his car??? NO, he lets her get away with it. SAP at this point.
He keeps the baby and starts to love her and be a father to her. NOTHING legal and still hasn't had the ex arrested. I'm really starting to lose patience. Then, his brother stabs him 3 times and he wants to NOT FILE charges. No choice, the police handle the matter. Then the ex shows up and her boyfriend HITS the babysitter (I think that would cause an arrest of assualt) The ex still has his car (theft charges), and he and his brother, etc. all sit around crying instead of calling the police and having both of them arrested. I am really losing patience at this point.
The only redeeming thing to this point is the hero breaks it off with the rich girl because she is basically treating him like dirt and he has had enough. At this point I don't know if I am going to finish the book or not. I just get so angry with the events that are taking place in this story. He tries everything to lead a good life and yet every character in his life is determined to tear him down and he LETS THEM.
Then there is his brother and EMMA. The preacher's daughter. God, could she be any stupidier, immature, etc. GAG, GAG, GAG. Their 6th date was with her mother and dad where the parents talked all about their getting married! She is saving herself for marriage, kissing is almost taboo, and you just want to throw up with this girl's values. Her "rules" had me thinking, Oh yeah give them a year and he will either be so whipped you can't stand him or divorced. Is there anyone in this town that is half way decent and has a brain????? I don't recommend it. It is not swdet, uplifting, etc. I wish I had not read this far!! I will read the reviews before I start another new book. Could have saved some time.
Arden just annoyed the living daylights out of me for over half of the book until she finally comes to terms with her feelings for her fiance and for Travis. And as much as I loved Travis, his need to protect everyone, even his ex-wife, pregnant with another man's child just got to be a bit more than I wanted to deal with.
Overall though, it was a good read - there was enough of a backstory with some of the other characters that kept things interesting, so I went with a 3 star rating.
The story flowed quite well for most of the book but some aspects could have been dealt with whilst developing the characters rather than abruptly introducing topics or characters in the midst of other issues.
I liked that the author tried to address different family issues and ways of thinking about relationships but it just needed a bit more rounding
Simple and easy book to read.
I also thought the secondary story involving his brother, Dustin and Emma was really good, too. I would have also liked to find out how the relationship between Alice and Vince turned out, or what happened between Shannon and Russ.
The reason for my 4 star rating, instead of the full five...was because of a few minor legalities, I just didn't understand. Like why did they not call the authorities when Tonya abandoned the baby? And why not report the car stolen? Or how about calling DCF the minute they found her and the baby living a life in total squalor, and with a man who is violent no less? And on top of all that...there was even evidence that Tonya was still shooting up. *smh* Or why when that man slapped Emma, why did they call the cops and charge him with assaut and battery? And I also thought that Arden's ex- finance should have been reported to the authorities, too. So many times they could have taken legal steps, and chose not to. That just didn't make any sense to me.
