I'm so happy to bring you a review. I had the pleasure of reading The Two of Us over the weekend. Have you read Victoria Bylin? If not, move her to the top of your TBR pile!
Let's get started!
About the Book
Jake Tanner may have recovered from the physical injuries he sustained on the job as a police officer, but his heart has yet to heal from losing his former partner in the tragedy. He's poured himself into starting a camp for the sons of fallen officers and mentoring Sam, the adult son of his deceased partner, who's asked him to be his best man at his wedding.
Mia is expecting a mess when she arrives to sort out the situation with Lucy, but she wasn't expecting Jake. And Jake, who can't help envying Sam and Lucy, doubts he'll ever experience their happiness for himself. But maybe Jake's courage and Mia's caring spirit are just what they need to bring them a lifetime of healing and a forever kind of love. . . ."

How can you sigh happy moments when you're waiting for the other shoe to drop? Personally, as a writer, I love the added tension. It moves the story along and of course, has me shouting at the characters when they don't do what I want them to.
The Two of Us was no exception. Jake is going on my favorite-heroes list. Seriously, he's a good man. And Mia, that girl needed a serious hug and a friend or two. :) Thankfully, she got those in Jake.
What I liked most about The Two of Us is the message that our dreams can change. They're not concrete. Sometimes, there is a better one waiting for us and it doesn't undermine the old one or make you a less of a person for choosing differently. That is pure gold, my friends.
