5 brilliant Stars! to Moving On by Karen Frances.
Lauren and Matt…….
What an amazing book this was! Karen Frances can weave a story that will captivate and engage you from the first page. She has such a wonderful talent for bringing out all the “feels.’ Each time I have to write a review for one of her books, I find myself struggling to find the perfect words.
Moving On is appropriately titled. Lauren Trent is devastated by the betrayal of the man she loved and expected ‘forever’ with. His betrayal was bad enough, however he has also decided he wants nothing to do with his very young children. Total dirtbag!
Lauren is trying to be strong for her children Unfortunately she is exhausting herself at the same time, determined to be a mother AND father. Lauren doesn’t need a man in her life. Nor does she believe she will ever trust a man again. And even after one unforgettable, spectacular night with a stranger, she stays true to those words.
Matt Anderson was a great hero. He was sexy, protective and a bit possessive. Matt is a successful restaurant owner; a man who is also successful with the ladies. Matt never considered settling down but when he meets Lauren, he knows things feel different with her. She is beautiful and sexy. Lauren is also intelligent and independent. Matt wants to get to know her better. He wants to date Lauren and see where their relationship could go. And the plus side? He adores Lauren’s children.
The problem is that Lauren does not want a man in her life like before. Not ever again.
Can Lauren learn to trust Matt? But what happens when she finds out that Matt isn’t perfect: that he has secrets?
Lauren and Matt together was amazing. I loved how the author didn’t rush their relationship. There were many obstacles to go over; I routed for them at every difficult moment. I truly felt the emotions the moment that everything fell into place for them. It was perfect. I couldn’t help the goofy smiles on my face through this book.
I have to say that Matt was an amazing character. “To good to be true” comes to mind when trying to describe him. Despite his flaws and his past, I couldn’t help but love him
Lauren had easily earned my respect from early on. Was she stubborn when it came to Matt? Yes, unfortunately she was the reason for the slow development of their relationship.
I also love how Lauren was as a mother. Her children were the most important people in her life and I felt that love she had for them. Lauren’s children were perfect additions to this book. In fact, there are many wonderful secondary characters as well.
Please trust me when I say you should add this book to your TBRs. Better yet….one click! Moving On is a must read, a beautiful sigh-worthy story.
