From Goodreads:
Rachel Porter, a romance writer, has told her three sons tales of finding their true soul mate since they were just boys. She lives with the belief that there is but one match for every person. Now as men, they have yet to discover their soul mates. That is, until they come home…

Ryan Porter, Rachel’s oldest son, needs a change from his busy city lifestyle. After five years of living in New York and establishing his own real estate firm, something is still missing. When a family tragedy brings Ryan back to his family’s rural home, he meets Tyra. She just might be the catalyst for the change he needs, redirecting the course of his life. But first he must accept his relationship with his parents and embrace Tyra’s secrets.

DNF at 60%. I read another book by Paloma Beck and enjoyed it, so I was disappointed that I couldn’t connect to the characters in this one. It’s most likely 99.9% me, so if you like contemporary romance then don’t be discouraged by my review. It’s well-written and the characters have depth, I just didn’t care about them or their situation. This doesn’t mean I’ll give up on the author. Like I said, I read another book and enjoyed it, so I’ll give more of her books a whirl.


  1. Too bad you couldn't get into this one! If I feel no kind of connection at all with the characters, I'm like you - the story doesn't appeal to me either. I hope your next read will be amazing.

    1. I gave it more time than I usually do because I liked her other book. But for some reason this one just didn't do it for me. Ah, well.

  2. I hate when I can't connect or don't care enough about the story to continue. There is just no point in reading a book when you can't make yourself are about the characters or their lives. Hopefully the next book you pick up by Paloma Beck is more enjoyable for you :)

    1. I was bummed about it. But I'll read more by her. :)

  3. I've been eying her books but maybe I'll start with a different one. If I can't connect with the characters, the book's a no go for me.

    1. It may just be because I've been reading less and less contemporary since I requested this book. The book by her that I enjoyed was Hold My Hand. I really need to get the next one in that series.
