Luke's Wish

Luke's Wish (Harlequin Heartwarming)Theresa Hill
Contemporary Romance

"Perfectly wrong, and still...perfect."




Luke is collecting teeth to bribe the tooth fairy.  She's magic, so surely she can bring him mom back.  The problem is, Samantha isn't really the tooth fairy, she's a dentist.  New to town, the last thing she needs is to get involved with another man with adorable children.  But how can she resist Joe and his sweet young children, especially when her heart is screaming to be with him.  Joe is at his wits end with his sons's new antics.  Life as a single parent has been difficult since his wife walked out over a year ago, but what choice does he have.  Now his son is convinced some woman is magic and the answer to all their problems.  However, Joe feels instantly attracted to Samantha - and in his own way comes to believe that she just might truly be the key to their happiness.  But can they trust each other enough to give it a try?

My Opinion: This was a bit of a surprising book.  It was a bit deeper than I  had imagined - dealing with some pretty serious issues and relationships.  And although one might expect it to be depressing (an it admittedly was at a couple points) it was quite enthralling.  The instant attraction and affection between Samantha and Joe really draws you in.  Samantha is a good character than shows rel growth.  Joe is consistent and a great person in general. Luke is such a poor, confused little boy you just want to give him a hug.  Good story as long as you can take the more serious stuff.

I received a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and opinion are 100% my own.
