My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This certainly was a slow burn read as Hadley and Elijah got to know one another. Hadley being a single mum was quite wary of Elijah, especially as how their first meeting didn’t go so well. However I could see the connection grow after each interaction, even though they didn’t understand it. My heart ached for Hadley and how she worked so hard to support her little family. I loved the change in Elijah. He gravitated toward this little family and was very protective of them all. He was keen to step out of his comfort zone so Hadley knew that he was serious. I adored Lucy! She seemed wise for her age and loved her mother and Elijah fiercely! My only complaint would that it wrapped up too quickly! I wanted more of this sweet family!

Make no mistakes about it. I know what I look like to others. Young, government-aided, pregnant mom. They see Lucy on my hip, and they see a mistake. I mean, why else would someone have a child so young, right? They couldn’t be more wrong. I’m too busy most days between parenting, work, and finishing up my last year of nursing school to let their judging gaze tear me down until he moves in the vacant house next to the apartments I live in.

His cold, blunt observation of us doesn’t differ from any other stranger. He doesn’t know me, but he’s already painting a picture of who he thinks I am in his mind. He judges my very round belly, Lucy’s inability to leave him alone, the bags under my eyes, and the fact that I could not care less what I look like anymore.

He’s a rude guy. Stays that way for months too. Then something happens, I’m not even sure what. Judgmental Guy decides Lucy and me — as well as baby Eli — are worth his friendship.

Turns out, Judgmental Guy isn’t too mean — okay, he kind of still is. But he graduates to Elijah. I build an unlikely friendship with him which deems it necessary for him to start smiling around me and my kids.

I’m wrong again. Elijah isn’t rude. He’s terrifying. His strange acts of kindness are unraveling me. Elijah is only my friend.


Oh, fudge. I think I’m wrong. Again.
