Wildest Dreams by Robyn Carr
Blake Smiley searched the country for just the right place to call home. The professional triathlete has traveled the world, but Thunder Point has what he needs to put down the roots he's never had. In the quiet coastal town he can focus on his training without distractions. Until he meets his new neighbors and everything changes.
Lin Su Simmons and her teenage son, Charlie, are fixtures at Winnie Banks' house as Lin Su nurses Winnie through the realities of ALS. A single mother, Lin Su is proud of taking charge and never showing weakness. But she has her hands full coping with a job, debt and Charlie's health issues. And Charlie is asking questions about his family history—questions she doesn't want to answer.
When Charlie enlists Blake's help to escape his overprotective mother, Lin Su resents the interference in her life. But Blake is certain he can break through her barriers and be the man she and Charlie need. When faced with a terrible situation, Blake comes to the rescue, and Lin Su realizes he just might be the man of her dreams. Together, they recognize that family is who you choose it to be.
I met Lin Su Simmons and her son Charlie in the last Thunder Point novel. Everything about her was left hanging so I was anxious to see what would happen to both. Turns out a lot happens.
Lin Su is a very self-contained private woman. She is very good at her job and loves Charlie but does not allow people to get close and personal. It takes a lot to bring her out of her shell. Blake Smiley and the others at Thunder Point work very hard and little by little she starts to trust.
Wildest Dreams is another feel good story filled with great characters whose lives are filled with interesting drama. Everything falls into place as the story progresses although sometimes there are unexpected surprises in store for each of the characters. Wildest Dreams will stand along but start with book one for the most reading fun.
Harlequin Mira published Wildest Dreams by Robyn Carr in 2014.
I received an ARC of Wildest Dreams from Neutrally in return for an honest review.
