Title: Almost Paradise
Author: Caitlin Ricci
Publisher: Silver Publishing
Characters: Travis and Liam
Travis will do anything to keep his daughter safe, now that he finally has custody. Financially ruined, he cannot even afford food for himself most days. Could a stranger’s offer to dog sit be the solution Travis has been hoping for?
Travis has done everything to keep his daughter safe. He’s fought a long, hard battle in the courts to gain full custody and has finally found some breathing room. But that security comes at a heavy price.
Staying in a motel and living off his quickly dwindling savings is no way to raise a toddler, so when Liam steps into his life and offers him hundreds of dollars just to watch his dogs for a weekend, it almost seems too good to be true.
But when he finds out there is more to Liam than he ever thought, he has a hard decision to make. Can he and his daughter stay and be safe or will he need to leave?
I found Almost Paradise to be a heartwarming story of Travis and Liam learning to trust each other, and hoping for love in the end. Travis takes Liam up on a job offer hoping that the man in sincere in wanting to help. When Liam returns from his business trip he discovers that Travis is upset and behaving irrationally because of Hannah’s mother, Alexandrea. When Hannah’s mother shows up on the scene Liam is the right man to put her in her place.
I enjoyed this book but I wish the story had been longer as I wanted to see more interaction between the men. Hannah was absolutely adorable.
