Think in the most life-changing experience that you've had. Well, that's what happened to Beckley Bridges. He wakes up one day, six years ago, to find out he was the father of a baby. The runaway mother left her child with a note and then she was gone with the wind.
In the present day we find Sheridan, a motivated teacher longing to share all the knowledge she can to her students, and there, in that classroom we have a lovely six years old girl named English. Beckley's daugther.
With a fluid and fresh narration in first person, the author built a story easy to read and enjoy, with lovely characters and funny but emotional development. At the first moment, Sheridan thinks Beck is an asshole... sexy, yes, but stubborn and rude. But as the story goes on, they started to comunicate, understand and care for each other. At least that's what Sheridan thinks.
English will grow up in your heart, you will love that kid so much. I loved her. She's so energic, innocent and kind, she cares about her teacher and shares her particular brand of magic with her. And then, the runnaway mother appears in the picture, and everything goes wild.
I hope you could give this book a chance. I hope you could enjoy this story as much as me, and fell in love with English (and her dad) as Sheridan did.
About the Author:
One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager, USA Today bestselling author, A. M. Hargrove, realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn't do something soon, it would be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life. So she made a quick decision to quit her job and reinvented herself as a Naughty and Nice Romance Author.
She fancies herself all of the following: Reader, Writer, Dark Chocolate Lover, Ice Cream Worshipper, Coffee Drinker (swears the coffee, chocolate, and ice cream should be added as part of the USDA food groups), Lover of Grey Goose (and an extra dirty martini), #WalterThePuppy Lover, and if you’re ever around her for more than five minutes, you’ll find out she’s a non-stop talker.
