Review: Someone to Love by Donna Alward

Someone to Love
Darling VT #2

St. Martin's Paperbacks

Ethan Gallagher is a firefighter in Darling, Vermont, who followed tradition and pledged his love on the Kissing Bridge to ensure lifelong happiness. A few years later, he’s a widower with two rambunctious boys who no longer believes in magic. But even he has to admit that free-spirited Willow Dunaway fills him with wonder…and an attraction he cannot deny.

Willow’s come back to Darling a different girl than the one who left after high school. Overcoming her past and owning her own business has made her into a strong, independent woman. Single dad Ethan appeals to her in a way she didn’t expect, even though settling down is the last thing on her mind. But after fire destroys the local food bank, the town rallies, and a fling between Ethan and Willow leads to unintended consequences. Can they find a way out of their heartbreak to make a home in each other’s hearts?

I have to say that I enjoyed Someone to Love almost more then Somebody Like You. I really enjoyed both Ethan and his sons. In fact, I like the whole Gallagher family. They really crack me up. 

You met Ethan in Somebody Like You and right away you knew he had a wounded heart. But even with that he's shows you what a great father he is.  

You learn in the first book that Ethan is a widowed father with two young boys. Right away you can tell he's feeling all the things mothers have felt forever. The feeling of never having enough time with your family, not really being there for them when you have to be at work. 

You know they feelings. 

I liked having the script switched and having the hero feeling overwhelmed and like he didn't measure up. Not to worry, Ethan was doing a great job so he had nothing to worry about. 

 Not only did I like Ethan, I loved Willow. She was such fun to read about. She really worked hard to take care of those around her. You loved how comfortable she is around Ethan's boys. Even when she's not sure what she's doing. 

These two take a while to figure out what they both want but it does happen in the end. I can't wait to see how they are doing in Somebody's Baby out April 4th! 

If you've read Someone to Love or any other book by Donna Alward I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! ♡
