Blurb: Happily Ever After can seem so far away. Especially when life kicks you every time you’re down. Alfie Stanford was a master of fairytales and happy endings but his own story was one sad twist after another. He didn’t have time for true love and he was too tired to dance at midnight, he had four younger siblings to raise.

Happily Ever After doesn’t happen for everyone. Sometimes, you miss your chance while you’re serving your country. Jack Church gave more than thirty years of his life to the Army and believed it was too late for him to be some man’s Prince Charming.

Sometimes, a little girl and a very special quilt are all it takes for something very magical to happen… Sometimes, there’s robots.

Review: I wish I had a way to describe how much I really enjoyed this story! It’s funny, heartwarming with a few hot scenes! What makes this such good story is how well the different tropes/themes are blended together; the May to December trope, hurt/comfort trope, (a past tragedy leaves MC to raise siblings), precocious (but funny) kids, humour and steamy scenes.
I had a great time reading this – definitely in my re-read pile ☺
