“You are my future, Kacie. You’re my present and my future and if I could figure out a way to invent a damn time machine, you’d be my past.”
SQUEEEEEEEE!!!! Another winner!!
This was the perfect follow-up to Room For You. If you are new to the series though, be sure to read this after that one though because it directly continues the story of Brody and Kacie’s romance.
I described the first book as “a sweet, swoony, heart-melting, romance, perfectly balanced with just enough angst to keep me on my toes” and I felt exactly the same way about this book. It completed Brody and Kacie’s story beautifully and I am so happy to now call this one of my favorite series!
As a quick recap, Brody is a famous hockey player who meets Kacie, a single mom with two adorable little twin girls, by chance and falls for her and her daughters, who he affectionately calls his Twinkies 😉 In this book we saw a continuation of their story as the summer came to an end and Brody’s hockey responsibilities began starting up again while Kacie was dealing with a complication from her past that showed up in her life… Nonetheless, they were both committed to making their new relationship work no matter what might come their way and in Room For More we got to watch them figured it all out together.
I really love this author’s writing. There’s a fluidity to it that just lets you get lost in the story. And, as with the first book, this one was told in alternating POVs giving us both sides of the story. Since I loved both Brody and Kacie, I was so happy to be able to see each of their perspectives on the romance.
Ohhh Brody…. If it was possibly to fall even more in love with him, I did in this book. His love for and commitment to these three girls just never stopped amazing me. There’s something about a guy who treats the children of the woman he loves as his own that is just so incredibly heart melting and powerful!!
“You have two very smart little girls… They see us hugging. They’ve seen me kiss you. They’re not stupid; they know what’s going on.”
“I know and I’m ok with that. I’m just worried about them getting too attached… Me too.”
“Kacie, get attached. Please, get attached. I sure as hell know I am. You’re what I want. You and the girls. This is it for me.”
And every single time he called her little girls his Twinkies, I swooned. Hard. Seriously, that has to be the cutest nickname in the history of nicknames!!! Just wait til you hear him say “Night, Twinkies!” <— *thud*
Now, I don’t want to say anything specific here because I don’t want to give anything away but there were some complications from Kacie’s past that came into play in this story and I’ll just say that I was fully expecting to feel a certain way about them and found myself pleasantly surprised that my earlier assumptions had been wrong. And even though it was certainly stressful at times, I really felt like it was real. It was a situation and reaction that I could totally see playing out the same way in real life and in the end, the way it all came together brought happy tears to my eyes.
I really just loved seeing them all figure out their place in each other’s lives. It was heartwarming to an extreme and the absolutely beautiful ending left me with the happiest feeling you can imagine.
About the series in general, I have to say that this truly is the kind of story that I think a lot of people will just fall in love with. It has realistic drama, great writing, loveable characters, and a romance that’ll sweep you away and being a smile to your face over and over again.
I’m now a huge fan of this author and she’s planning books for Viper and a few other side characters next! Personally I can’t wait for them!! They’re all auto-buys for me!
If you haven’t picked up this 2-book series yet, start now and fall in love with Brody Murphy!! If you’re looking for a gorgeous, heartfelt, swoon-filled romance, this is it!!!
Series rating: 5 stars!
