The story was quite simply everything I wanted to read, it was completely engaging, I could say it was syrupy sweet but that would imply that, that was a criticism but hand on heart it isn’t.
Riley was ready to take a step forward with her life, to get what she wants moving forward and that means taking a long hard look at what is going on between her and Brian the father of her child. The issue is that after more than a decade together it isn’t easy to just call it a day, no matter how reticent the other party is to your efforts to make what you have work.
I hated that Brian was almost ambivalent to Riley’s attempts to rekindle what they once had but life gives you lemons and you make lemonade, so she stuck with what she was doing until out of the blue the guy that she really needed, the guy that was going to be able to give her the future she dreamt about is on her horizon and she has a decision to make and a future to grab by the scruff of the neck and embrace!
Could she? And would Trenton be the guy to give her hope, to bring a sense of romance back into her life and to treat her the way she deserved to be treated?
I hoped so but I was a little concerned at one point that I had too much riding on them making it and I have to say that the author gave me a little bit of a scare as the book progressed, not enough to have me hyperventilating and swearing at the screen but certainly enough to raise a bead or two of sweat on my brow.
I need not have worried though because I got what I not only wanted but needed from the story and I thank the author for a story beautifully told

"I know he loves me, but I wish I knew what the problem was so we could fix it. If he'd only talk to me, we'd find a way. Instead, we're stuck at a painful intersection" -Open House-Riley
We meet Riley Stallings and the story is told exclusively in her POV. Her and her boyfriend of many years Brian share a life together. They have a beautiful home, a son who they both love and adore, financial stability, what more could be missing? What more could Riley want?
My heart broke for RIley when all the answer to my questions were answered. What seems loving and promising on the outside is not what it seems. I related to RIley on many levels and just wanted to put myself into the book and hug her and just be her friend.
We all love a hot teacher and you can't tell me, you've never had a fantasy about a teacher but is it proper etiquette to fantasize and crush on your son's teacher? Yea, thought so.
"It wouldn't be a regret"
"I'm not a cheater"
"He doesn't love you." he says.
"Neither do you."
Oh, the feels TC Matson brings you on with Trenton, I prefer to call him Mr. Bratcher because deep down inside I purposely want to get detention and have him-----no no no.
You will be in for a roller coaster of a ride with this book it's full of love, laughs, heartache, angst, so many emotions I had while reading this book. TC Matson has enthralled me in this story and I wa cheering for RIley to have her happy ending and get what he always wanted.
This book has stayed with me and has left an impact. I encourage anyone that wants all the feels to read this book. TC Matson delivers on all levels and will leave you wanting more.
You won't regret reading this book. Just make sure you have the following: tissues, wine, dove chocolate and a cover for your kindle, you'll want to throw it a couple of times.
I "discovered" TC Matson, via Anne Mercier (who has never steered me wrong), and once I read TC's "The Fighter Series," she immediately moved into my Top 5 authors, so, I was having anxiety waiting for Open House....And even though this book was a surprise and a completely different type of book from her....the wait was SO worth it!!!
If you read her "The Fighter Series," you obviously know the woman can write, but if you are expecting a book, anything like those books, you aren't going to be disappointed, but you are going to be shocked and surprised....but in the VERY BEST of ways....
I want to relay the entire story to you, and I promise, if I did, you'd still buy it to read it for yourself....But I don't want to spoil this gem, for what I think is a great beginning to a different side of TC Matson...This book is intense and real and heartbreaking and the dialogue (although it is written in a single POV) shows us what's inside the heads of all 3 main characters, and we understand why each one is making the decisions they are making.....In my opinion, there are two Heroes and one heroine in this book, and one of the weird parts to me is, although I wasn't always happy with him, I never really saw what is probably suppose to be the "bad guy" Hero, as a "bad guy" at all, (I'd have to spoil the book for you to explain why I feel this way!!), but it takes a genius author to make that happen...The heroine was smart, strong, lovable, a good mother, and it wasn't hard to imagine more than one man in love with her, but, I was happy to see she NEVER CHEATED....and trust me, that couldn't have been easy, but the way TC wrote her part, it was neither surprising nor unbelievable....The second Hero, with whom I instantly fell in love was fantastic, although, one of the two times I actually teared up, cursed TC Matson and threw my kindle involved him and the heroine near the end, because he was breaking both of their hearts while doing what he believed was the right thing to do for both of them and their hearts ...If I keep going, I'm going to tell you about the book all of the way to the end, and you deserve to read it yourself.....You will be sucked in from the first page until the very last.....To me, this book opened a new chapter in TC Matson's writing, and I can hardly wait to see what she has in store for us next....I really think Brian needs his own book!!! Thanks, TC Matson, for another good one!!!
