Pretend I’m Yours


Vivian Wood (Goodreads Author)
Heartbroken, destroyed, and on the edge of despair.
That’s how I felt for two years after my wife died, leaving me all alone with our baby.I sucked it up and kept going for my little girl… but I wasn’t living. I was only existing.Then I met Larkin, my gorgeous blonde neighbor. She’s got curves in the right places, and toffee-colored eyes that beg me to do unspeakable things to her.I don’t want to want her. I don’t want to look at her, and I definitely don’t want to long for her.
I want to avoid her.Except… I can’t. Everywhere I go, everything I do, I am brought back to Larkin.And when we finally cave, falling into bed together… It’s fucking explosive and passionate and deep. Soon enough, it’s as essential as breathing.

I’m starting to fall in love with Larkin… but it was never supposed to turn into this.

If I want a future with Larkin, I have to figure out how to let go of the past.
And nothing has ever felt so good… and hurt so bad.

My Review


Wow!  This book was very intense.  An emotional roller coaster, that will have you on the edge wondering if you should pull your hair out and scream or cry.

In this story Larkin is a bleeding heart, who takes in the unwanted and disabled type animals.  She is caring and sweet and tries to fix them.  She has moved back to Pacific Pines to fix up her mother’s house to sell, so she can move to New York.  That is until a dark-haired intense and sexy as sin stranger walks into her life, with the most adorable two-year old.

Charlie is damaged.  He lost his wife when his daughter was only 3 months old.  Not only does that leave him broken-hearted, but he has served in the military and the CIA, which has left him with a scarred soul.  His only reason for living is his two-year old daughter Sarah.  Sarah who looks more and more like her mother everyday.

Larkin is determined to help Charlie and Sarah.  She sees the darkness he tries to hide.  But will she be enough to help him see the light at the end of the tunnel?  The one he so desperately wants to find.

This book has amazing characters that are well-developed with depth to their souls.   I really enjoyed reading about the journey of Charlie and Larkin.  Larkin is a wonderful and caring person.  Charlie is brooding, dark and sexy.  A cute little Sarah is a doll.

This book was an edge of your seat good read.  A real page turner.  This book flows so smoothly and is life like in detail.  It tells a story of healing the soul.  Not only that but of reconnecting with family and change.  A beautiful love story that will reach in and grab your heartstrings and pull.  I highly recommend this book.
