    Bad Boy makes good! - Then better!

    I love it when an underdog character comes back further along in a series and has found himself. This is the case with Bowie Bravo in this book. Last time we saw him in the Bravo Family Series he was a mess. Now Bowie has found is calling, he has found a career that keeps him grounded and level and has come back to be a father to the son he left behind. While still in love with with his former girlfriend - Gloria - she is not the object of his visit, he is back to bound with his son and treat Gloria only with respect and friendly compassion (until the sparks fly of course!) which lends a great strength to this grown up, materured version of Bowie. If you are at all in touch with this series DON'T MISS THIS ONE!

    Recommend it

    This book held my interest throughout. It wasn't sappy and showed human flaws and how they effect relationships. I loved the way Bowie connected with his son and discovered his parental instincts. I enjoyed the characters, and the way the author presented the fact that people can change if they work at it. This book is heartwarming and also a fun read!

    Can Bowie prove his love?

    I thank Hazel Schwartz for making sure we got the story of the present day Bowie cause that angry, drunk young man was very irritating LOL Ms Schwartz let Ms Rimmer know she wanted Bowie's story and this book is dedicated to her! Ms Rimmer has done it -- I just love Bowie now. He's a very likeable/loveable guy. Even feel some compassion for him for the disaster he had made of his life. Glad he's making the effort to get to know his little boy, Johnny, and love that he can treat Glory with the respect that she deserves. Glory had finally married Matteo Rossi and did love him too. She got pregnant and he had a car accident that killed him so here she is 9 mos pregnant and Bowie comes to her door wanting to get to know their boy, Johnny. Johnny loved Mateo and Bowie knows it's going to be an uphill battle. Bowie has been in contact with his mother and brothers so he does know all the latest information and thought this was the time to come back home for Johnny and Glory. He doesn't think Glory will even care about him again but..... Within a short time of coming to see Johnny, Bowie is delivering Serafina Teodora Rossi who he fell in love with and Sera fell in love with him too! I told a little of the book but I sure didn't tell too much LOL Great Valentine's story of second chances. Had a great time watching Bowie prove his love to Johnny and Glory. Very entertaining love story! Can Bowie and Glory rekindle their love they had all those years ago?
