Release Date: Oct 24, 2017
Genres: NA/Contemporary Romance
Blurb:Darlene Montgomery has been to hell and back…more than once. After a stint in jail for drug possession, she is finally clean and ready to start over. Yet another failed relationship is just the motivation she needs to move from New York to San Francisco with the hopes of resurrecting her dance career and discovering that she is more than the sum of her rap sheet. As Darlene struggles in her new city, the last thing she wants is to become entangled with her handsome—but cranky—neighbor and his adorable little girl…
Sawyer Haas is weeks away from finishing law school, but exhaustion, dwindling finances, and the pressure to provide for himself and his daughter, Olivia, are wearing him down. A federal clerkship–a job he desperately needs–awaits him after graduation, but only if he passes the Bar Exam. Sawyer doesn’t have the time or patience for the capricious—if beautiful—dancer who moves into the apartment above his. But Darlene’s easy laugh and cheerful spirit seep into the cracks of his hardened heart, and slowly break down the walls he’s resurrected to keep from being betrayed ever again.
When the parents of Olivia’s absentee mother come to fight for custody, Sawyer could lose everything. To have any chance at happiness, he must trust Darlene, the woman who has somehow found her way past his brittle barbs, and Darlene must decide how much of her own bruised heart she is willing to give to Sawyer and Olivia, especially when the ghosts of her troubled past refuse to stay buried.

I’ll be writing some short and sweet reviews for a little while as I try to catch up on all of the reviews I’m behind on…
My absolute favorite thing about this book was the story and connection between Sawyer and his daughter. It was so beautiful that at its peak it brought tears to my eyes. This is a romance and that was decent – not awesome, but good for me. But, this book was more – Sawyer fighting for his daughter and Darlene fighting against her addiction demons, and that was what really won me over with this one. I’m now looking forward to Someday, Someday.
