SynopsisMike McCauley had his soul mate for a precious time before she died giving birth to their son. She left him with the best boy a guy could want, so why is everyone playing matchmaker? He's sick of it . . . until he meets Delilah Webster. 

For some reason, the foul-mouthed, tattooed mechanic sets his motor running. He sees the loving woman buried within. But the closer they get, the more the pain of past wounds throws a monkey wrench into a future he's not sure he can handle...


Aww, no! It's the end of the series and I don't know how to handle this...

But it was an awesome ending! I think it took me all of 8 hours to read this book and that includes stopping to eat and help with homework (my kids, not mine!). I hadn't intended to read this book so soon but found a day in my schedule to fit it in and just couldn't resist. I had to see Mike's happy ending. And boy did he get a few of those in this delightfully naughty book... *snicker*

Mike isn't looking for anything series. Ever. He had his chance with true love and his wife was tragically taken from him. Now, he has vowed to never marry, again. But that doesn't mean he will live the rest of his life as a saint. So when he finds himself more than intrigued by Delilah, he decides to take their flirty banter one step forward.

Del is nothing like Mike's deceased wife or anyone else that he's ever shown interest in. She has tattoos, piercings, and works in a garage for goodness' sake. She's the polar opposite of what anyone thinks Mike would be attracted to. Yet, their chemistry is undeniable, even to her. Allowing herself to get closer to him comes easy, especially since she's already half in love with his son. But a man who still pines for his dead wife is not an ideal partner.

Colin wants a puppy. And a mother. Oh, and a brother, too. He doesn't really care about the order but he wants all three and the little boy is pretty good at finding a way to get what he wants. Fortunately, Colin sees a way to get everything if only his dad would finally open his heart and admit that Del just might be the missing piece of their family.

This book surprised me in a few ways. Even though there is plenty of humor, there is also a strong emotional element to the plot and we get to see several different viewpoints throughout the book. This story also had more intense love scenes than previous books in this series. There is a bit of rougher play happening in the bedroom between our couple. I thoroughly enjoyed this, no doubt, and was pleasantly surprised by it. The love scenes certainly steamed up the digital pages.

In closing...
Overall, this was a fantastic ending to a wonderful series that I am so glad I picked up. I am sad to see it end but this series will go on my re-read shelf, for sure. Five suns!
