Documentary producer Simon and ex-footballer Declan are taking some big steps toward a lasting life together. They’ve bought a house, and they’ll need it for the family they plan to start. Their friend, Nyssa, has made the generous offer to be their surrogate, and Declan couldn’t be more excited about the idea of a baby.
Simon knows fatherhood is a huge commitment, and though it’s daunting, he sees how much Dec wants it, and he’s sure that together, they can succeed in anything—despite the worries nagging at him.
But just as their new life is taking shape, a health scare disrupts their plans at the worst possible moment. With time running short, Simon and Dec will have to bare their fears and doubts to each other so they can face them before their world changes forever.
It might mean a literal leap of faith.
This was a lot of fun! I’d forgotten how much I enjoy Simon’s snarky humor and Declan’s steadfast devotion. The secondary characters are also back and so funny, too!
There is no steam in this – and I missed that aspect – I think a little bit would have helped – we don’t need a ton but…
I really enjoyed watching the couple navigate Simon’s health scare and the decision to become fathers. I really liked how that was handled.
I was worried, given the length of this, that I was going to be bored – I tend to find sequels like this can be tedious – but I wasn’t and I can really recommend this to all the fans from the original books.
I will say that I do think it could have been edited a bit tighter and that there are some parts of this that could have been deleted 🙂 IMHO
