Capturing Peace by Molly McAdams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
When her jerk of a boyfriend leaves her in high school because she wouldn't get an abortion, Reagan immediately learns that men leave. She has the baby (a boy - Parker) and life revolves around him from that moment on. She is a strong, independent woman and the father figure in her son's life is her older brother.
Coen is a friend of her brother's now retired from the Army and pursuing photography full time.
Coen and Reagan's first meeting doesn't go off too hot as they're both headed to lunch with her brother and when she realized her brother set her up, she leaves, furious. Another run in at the park while Parker is playing and the sparks fly even more.
Reagan and Coen come to an understanding at first and decide to just hang out and get to know each other better.
Even though their friendship blossoms, they both must deal with their fears. For Coen, it's his PTSD. For Reagan, it's of Parker's reaction to if the relationship doesn't work and Coen steps out of their lives for good.
When I started this book, I immediately sided with Reagan and saw just how strong and determined that she was. When Coen broke through her walls, I hope that he would let her help him break his own walls down and by the end of the book... I was a blubbering mess.
This was the perfect book to start the Sharing You series.
