Single mom Rachel Gibson seriously needs a break. Between an absent ex-husband, rowdy twin boys, and running her own work-from-home business, her candle isn't just burning at both ends, it's a full-blown puddle of wax. She's the go-to girl for other entrepreneurs, handling all the tasks they dread. Social media posts? She's got it. Website updates? She's on it. Light bookkeeping? She loves it.

Thank goodness Rachel’s about to get a reprieve, as her former in-laws plan to whisk her boys away for a summer of fun at the family lake house. But when her ex backs out at the last minute, she finds herself in a pickle. Even though she's drowning in to-dos, she's horrible at saying no—especially when it comes to providing some stability for her kids.

Once Rachel arrives at the lake house, she struggles to keep up with work and balance the demands of family, all the while fending off pesky new feelings for her ex-brother-in-law. Which makes her wonder...is falling for her ex-husband's brother just one more messy complication added to the dumpster fire of her life? Or is anything possible when she's out of office…?


  • So much fun!!!

    Once again, Christina Hovland gives you laugh out loud, in a new series. Seriously, anytime I read her books, I am usually bursting out laughing and getting looks from anyone around. Rachel is a single mom, to twin boys (you can imagine how crazy that is), and eventually twin puppies (thanks to a clueless dad). She’s a stay at home mom, runs her own business, and pretty much does it all by herself. Gavin, the boys’ dad, isn’t around as much as he should be, so his brothers step in when he can’t. Travis, one of his brothers, shows up a lot, and gets under Rachel’s skin in quite a few ways. But when she has to take Gavin’s place at the family vacation get away for the summer, things between her and Travis start really heating up. There are lots of laughs here, lots of sweet & tender moments, and lots of love. I’m so looking forward to more of this series!!

    I loved this book! Rachel Frank is a harried mom of twin eight year old boys. Her ex Gavin is busy with his job and new fiancé and expects perfectionist Rachel to pick up the slack. When her ex Gavin cannot make the Frank family summer vacation, Rachel is convinced by Gavin’s brother, Travis, to come with her sons. Of course, Rachel and Travis and attracted to each other, but as her ex brother-in-law, they can’t act on their attraction. Loved the main characters and all of the side characters (who I hope will be in future books). If you want an enjoyable RomCom, this book fits the bill. I received an ARC of this book from the author and publisher for my honest opinion.
