BOOK REVIEW- MAYBE MATT'S MIRACLE
BOOK REVIEW- MAYBE MATT'S MIRACLE-What he needed was a miracle… Matthew Reed has seen his share of problems. But he’s a Reed and Reeds can overcome anything. Matt is content working in his family’s tattoo parlor with his brothers surrounding him. The only thing he’s lacking is the ability to have a family of his own. Then his battle with cancer leads him to meet a woman who just might need him as much as he needs her.
She didn’t need anything...Skylar Morgan is happy. She has a boyfriend. Sure, he doesn’t make her heart pound faster and he really doesn’t support her when she needs it. But she doesn’t need much. Does she? She’s happy to be self-sufficient and she’s happy that she doesn’t have a tremendous amount of responsibility. She’s educated, has a great job, and she has enough money for a lifetime. But what she lacks, she doesn’t even realize until she meets him. And them. The ones who change her life forever. AMAZON
What a cute non-couple. Well at least there were at first. A non-couple that is. I enjoyed the separate P.O.Vs for both Matt and Skylar. Skylar sure went through her life without much in the way of affection being sent her way. She also had to deal with her feelings of betrayal when it comes to knowing her father had another daughter, another family. Her own mother was a shrew with a capital "S". Skylar knows next to nothing about children but she's willing to learn, and to learn to love them. No way does she want them to be raised by nannies, boarding schools and any other hired people. She was raised in that cool, impersonal way and doesn't want it for her nephew and nieces.
Her family was dysfunctional to say the least. That was part of the drama of the story, as well as the building romance and forming a new family with her half-sisters kids. Matt's family has had its struggles but it never lacked warmth and caring. Quite a difference from Skylar. The Reed family members were an interesting addition that I enjoyed. Even though there were quite a few F*** words in the book, along with other language, I still found it an enjoyable, emotional read with a good ending.
I received a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
