Tessa Ever After by Brighton Walsh


From Penguin:

In this grippingly emotional New Adult novel from the author of Caged in Winter, what you want isn’t always what you need…

Jason’s been living (and loving) the rich playboy lifestyle for five years, but now his parents are pressuring him to get involved in the family business. The last thing he wants is another obligation, but when his best friend moves out of state and asks Jason to look after his sister, he can’t just say no.

Tessa had to grow up way too soon. After dealing with the aftermath of her parents’ deaths, then becoming a teenage mom, she knows the meaning of responsibility. Which is why, at twenty-two, she’s looking for so much more than a party boy. She’s looking for someone who can stand by her and her daughter…forever.

A relationship between them is doomed from the start, but who says they can’t have a little fun? But as Jason gets closer to Tessa—and her daughter—fun starts to turn into something else… Something Jason’s not sure he’s ready for.

Being a young single mother, without parents of her own, makes having a life difficult.  In fact, she's barley hanging on now that her brother, Cade, has moved away.  Enter Jason, Cade's best friend.  Jason's known Tessa all his life, but his best friend's sister is strictly off-limits.  Cade's departure brings Tessa and Jason closer together, as Tessa needs help keeping it together for her daughter.  

I love Tessa and Jason.  They are flirty, fun, and sometimes awkward as hell!  Single parents seems to be a trending theme in romances and Walsh does a fantastic job bringing Tessa and Jason together in an organic and entertaining relationship.  If you haven't read Brighton Walsh, you really need to.  Caged in Winter, Cade and Winter's story, is great.  Check out my review here.  I can't wait to see what Walsh has in store for us next!
