I loved this friends-to-lovers and brother's best friend/best friend little sister's romance. Gabe and Elizabeth have known each other since they were children. She has been in love with him since then and Gabe has been fighting the growing attraction between them. When his daughter comes to live with him, Elizabeth seizes the opportunity to be near him while taking care of Phoebe. It isn't long before he gives into her, but his past prevents him from moving forward. There are lots of tender moments with both Gabe and Elizabeth, and Gabe and his daughter as they form their father/daughter bond that help show the kind of man he really is, not the man he believes himself to be. The threat to his daughter from an unknown source adds a bit of mystery to the romance. Looking forward to the next book!
