I’m a yes girl. Get your mind out of the gutter; I’m not talking about sex. I’m talking about saying yes to whatever comes my way in life. So when I had the chance to move to Europe after college, I said, yes. When I had the chance to open my own lingerie line, I said, yes. And when my stepsister got diagnosed with cancer and needed me to come home and help her raise her daughter, I said, yes. That’s me, Kenzie — the yes girl! In every area of my life but one —Love. Always the first to leave a relationship. Will I be able to say yes to love — to Kane — to being happy? Or will I simply come undone and be stripped raw?
Don’t let Kenzie fool you! She’s a master at hiding behind a laugh and a smile. Being an attorney, I prefer the facts. This story isn’t as light and happy as my yes girl would have you believe. No laugh can sugarcoat what we are facing: I’ve lost everything. I know what it’s like to be left raw. But sometimes that’s the only way to find love. To strip yourself down, let the other person see all your sh*t, and hope they love you anyway.

Minor spoilers alert!!! Writing style: Dual POVs Cover design: The cover really caught my eye and I pre-ordered it mainly because of that. I love it! ‘That’s the thing about love. Anyone can love you when you’re young, beautiful, and life is perfect. But true love is loving someone in their s[---].’ ~Kenzie It took a while for Kenzie to come to the above realization, but Kane’s sad past and his knowledge that love and time were precious motivated him to help her reach this conclusion. The pacing and progression of their relationship was so satisfying for me. I really appreciated Kane’s determination to prove he wouldn’t be like those people who had disappointed Kenzie in the past. He was incredibly patient, supportive, sexy and never wavered from his “all in” commitment. I thought Kenzie tended to jump to the wrong conclusion easily, but she was mostly quick to listen to reason and give their relationship a chance to deepen. Although it’s not a light read in light of her sister’s condition, there were enough humorous moments added to the mix to keep it from being an overly downer of a read for me. And poor, courageous and funny Tessa and cute little Zoe were hard not to like. Tessa gave both Kenzie and Kane good advice when needed. She was truly a cool big sister and gave me total big sister envy. I loved that their Sister Sunday tradition would continue on although slightly altered now with Kenzie and her niece Zoe.
