Well this book finally comes full circle with the golden child Braydon. I wasn't sure who in the end would win Braydon's heart but in the end it couldn't have been any more perfect for him and this family. Braydon has always looked for perfection so why not have the perfect partner. The problem is that all those girls are great on paper but not in real life. Since he can't find his elusive perfect he dabbles with relationships like with his boss, until a proposition of a one night stand no strings attached changes his life. Becca, just finalized her divorced and her best friend forces her to live a little for herself for once and have a nice fling. After picking up this golden haired stranger and proposing one night, she has a moment of surrender and happiness but the moment it is done she has to return to her real life which is full of responsibility and no time for relationships. As luck would have it, their paths cross again but Becca keeps trying to keep Braydon away but he is persistent, even after Braydon finds out that with Becca she comes up with a bigger package. Braydon has always been more about himself and does what is easier so committing to Becca and her son is not his normal pattern, but there is something different about Becca that he feels is worth the risk. Becca is scared to have this relationship but Braydon makes her feel alive for the first time ever, unfortunately though she has her own baggage with a self defeating sense of failure for her lost marriage. "Becca, I'm not afraid of commitment. Nor am I afraid of your circumstances. Stop expecting me to bolt at the first glimpse of chaos. I was raised in chaos." As Braydon , Becca and Hunter try to make it work, Becca's past and insecurities are put the test while putting poor Braydon through the ringer. Even though I loved this book and the series, Becca's issues drove me the most crazy, since I don't have kids I couldn't relate to her struggles in the end. I got them I just didn't fully get the conflict or her waivering. I'm sure if I was a mother and a divorcee then I would have different feelings towards this but since I am neither it made it a bit more hard to relate to. Thankfully Braydon won't settle for anything less then what he wants. So he builds his future and hopes that it works out for the best. In this book so many elements come to close beautifully and with the help of Becca's crazy friends, Hunter and the McCulloughs they make Becca and Braydon see what they truly need which is ... each other. Great book! Amazing Series.
*sniffle* My favorite family. It is sad to see the end of the series but such a great story. One of the reasons I love this series so much is because it is so real. Real life issues, good and bad. This book touches the lives of children with Autism. Even if you don't know anything about it, you will learn what some parents go through. Then throw in the best book family, The McCulloughs. Thank you for giving me a mountain full of big hearted, funny, beautiful Irishmen. I feel at home on McCullough Mountain and will always go back to visit.
