New York Times bestselling author Molly McAdams delivers another heart-wrenching, emotional novel in her Thatch series…

After her first love was ripped from her grasp four years earlier, Charlie Easton was sure she would never be able to trust anyone with the shattered pieces of her heart again. That is, until Deacon Carver forces himself into her life, and makes those pieces swirl in chaos. But Charlie doesn't know how to let him in… until a stranger stumbles upon a notebook filled with her innermost secrets, and shows her how.

Deacon Carver is known for sleeping his way through the town of Thatch, as well as the surrounding cities—something he used to take pride in. But that persona has haunted Deacon ever since he decided to leave that life behind for the girl he wants more than anything: Charlie Easton.

But when another girl falls into Deacon's life, allowing him to be himself without judgment for his past, will their conversations hinder his relationship with Charlie … even if he's never seen her?

Such emotion and heartache in this read. Charlie trying hard to love again and open her heart. And Deacon not knowing love or believing in it. Their journey to finding happiness and love is a strong, pwerful, and emotional read.

Totally got drawn into this story. I loved watching Deacon fall for Charlie and Keith. Keith was so endearing I couldn't get enough of his super heroes! It was a very moving story about overcoming, loving and opening up to the possibilities. Another wonderful book. Chelsea Strepp's song was beautiful and so perfect to the story! Molly McAdams has done it again!

Show Me How by Molly McAdams is the last book in the Thatch series, although it can be read as a standalone. This series has crossover characters from each of the books, and it is recommended to read them in order. What a beautiful, heart wrenching story. McAdams never fails to rip my heart out, but she puts it back together every time. Charlie Easton has come home from college. After suffering the loss of her first love, it’s impossible for her to trust that another won’t inflect that pain all over again. All she wants now is to be a good mother to her four-year old son, Keith. And maybe, just maybe, when the time is right, Prince Charming will sweep her off her feet. Because the next man who enters her life and convinces her to take a chance will have to be nothing less of perfect. She’s built this perfect man up in her journal…pages and pages of her ideal prince. And when a stranger stumbles upon her private thoughts, her quiet, little world is about to get a whole lot more interesting. Enter Deacon Carver, all around career womanizer. This player has spent a lifetime of playing the field, and he hates all things romance and kids. Yet, he’s come to the conclusion that maybe he needs a fresh start—but that new start shouldn’t come from a woman with a four-year old. He just doesn’t want to go there, even though he’s finding it impossible not to fall for Charlie Girl and her adorable son. Against the odds, these two find each other and not only do opposites attract, but atoms combust and fireworks ignite when they collide. Theirs is a beautiful story about redemption and growth, and finding that one person who just does it for you. I highly recommend this love story!

Molly's Thoughts: Is there ever anything less than a 5 star review to give to the uberly talented Queen of Ugly Cries? I mean, seriously. She's amazing. And this book. This amazing in every gut wrenching, laughable, heart achingly way book is just as awesometastic as Molly McAdams. That's why this review will short, sweet and to the point. Read it. Read it now. But, only if you have read books 1 & 2 in this Thatch Series. It's the bittersweet ending to the series and to get the full breathtaking, heart aching effect you need to read all three books. Charlie Girl and Deacon will sweep you off your feet in this amazing love story. Keith will steal your heart and Jagger.....well, Jagger is simply Jagger. Charlie and Deacon come head to head and the sparks that fly are instantly felt by the reader and you laugh with them, cry with them, cheer for them and at the end......well, at the end, you're cursing Ms. McAdams for another job well done, but a terrible feeling becomes you when you realize that this is it. This is the end of the series and you won't get to see Keith grow up, or Graham get his HEA. Then you're on your knees begging....oh wait. This is still my review. No need to go into deets of what I actually was going to do when the book ended! :-) Anyway, this bittersweet ending was amazing and you must get it now. Go forth and become a Molly fan if you aren't already one. Go forth and add to collection if you are one! Just go. Go get this book now! Ms. McAdams' 5 million star worthy book will have you neglecting your kids, your work, your home. What are you waiting for? Go show the world #HowYouMolly and buy this book up now! Fantabulous job, Molly! Bravo, my lady! *Review originated at Cafinated Reads Review Blog*

Where do I even begin? I don't know that my words will do Molly McAdams any justice!! Molly has a way with tearing you to pieces and then putting you back together word by word. This book was no different than any other. She will have you ugly crying, screaming at her in your head, sighing and swooning within seconds. And she will have you walking away at peace with it all. I absolutely loved everything about this book from the storyline to the characters created!! You will feel the heartache to your very core. The chemistry is off the charts and will leave butterflies in your stomach and chills down your spine. I don't want to give anything away with my review, so all I'm going to say is that this is a MUST READ!! You thought you loved Deacon before, that your heart broke for Charlie in the previous book it doesn't even compare. Even though this is part of a series it can be read as a standalone and is told in the POV of both Deacon and Charlie. You won't just see the words you will feel them!! Oh and I should mention even though it can be read as a standalone I still highly recommend you read the whole series they kind of all tie together.

Stories with first person narrative make for powerful storytelling. It allows the reader to experience the events in the characters lives almost first hand. For that reason, Show Me How is impacting because the ability to empathize and understand Charlie's grief and self doubt as well as Deacon's journey from playboy to changed man are more relatable. There is no handy pocketbook to show the way to travel through tragedies, obstacles and growing as a person. We're all winging it, learning as we go and hoping we get it right. Show Me How is about owning choices we make and gaining knowledge from the past to help create a better person.
