Release Date: July 19, 2022


Colby’s living her best life: as a popular food blogger, she gets to fulfill her dreams of exploring the globe. But her world comes crashing down when a tragic accident leaves her co-guardian of her best friend’s two adorable children. Not only does she need to put down roots—fast—but she’ll be sharing custody with the one man she can’t stand sharing a continent with, let alone a house. Accountant-extraordinaire Rip values rules and plans. But when he loses his sister and his best friend and becomes an insta-guardian all in one night, Rip sees his organized life imploding. What he really doesn’t need is his sister’s irresponsible, flighty—albeit kind and gorgeous—best friend making it worse. Rip doesn’t trust Colby to take their new responsibilities seriously, while Colby can’t believe Rip thinks children will thrive under his rigid control. Yet soon Rip and Colby discover they need each other more than they hate each other. Could it be possible that following their hearts is just what their new little family needs?

My Review

This book is perfect for fans of the movie “Life as We Know it!” Colby and Rip have a very similar dynamic. I absolutely freaking loved their witty banter and how that moment that they realized they needed each other more than they loathed each other. It has a slow start, but eventually picks up.

Life as We Know It via GIPHY. Caption states: “Did you hear me say I loved you? Because I can say it again.”

Colby is a fun and lovable protagonist. But, it took me sometime to appreciate Rip. I wasn’t a huge fan of Rip. Overall, it’s a cute, rom-com type of book that will make you cry at times.
