Trigger Warnings: Emotional Manipulations
What I absolutely adore about Melanie Moreland’s writing is that her romances rarely have unnecessary drama – they are hopeful, refreshing and buoyant.
Van is part of the team at BAM – a secondary character in the previous Vested Interest Series; but he is someone who is reticent to do anything that would have the ability to play havoc with his status quo – even if that means ignoring his very strong attraction to his co – worker.
Liv, on the other hand, is a fiercely independent single mother who does her best to juggle personal and professional life – she is happy and content with raising her little girl and while Van, her co – worker interests her a whole lot; she doesn’t do much beyond just gazing at him.
I loved how Van and Liv are with other; but more than that I adored how Van was with Sammy, Liv’s little girl – their relationship progresses exactly how I expected; sweet, slow and definitely worth all the wait, for both of them.
When the past comes knocking for Liv, it’s also amazing to see how BAM rallies around her and Van – proving once and for all that family is exactly what makes the foundation of BAM. I have fallen in love with the characters Ms. Moreland has created, and with Van, she has cemented the fact that I would pick her books up for that feel good factor.
