ARC Review: In Fine Form by Shannyn Schroeder

Declan Doyle is ready for a change. He’s finally going to put his couch-surfing, job-hopping, responsibility-free days behind him. So, when his best friend’s sister offers room and board in exchange for home repairs, he jumps at the opportunity. Falling for her wasn’t part of his plan. But that’s exactly what he does...

As a divorced single mom with a dilapidated house, Renee Griggs has more responsibility than she can handle. So, even though Declan has always been more charming than reliable, she needs his help. She does not, however, need to fall into bed with him. Or so she keeps telling herself...

One fake wedding date (with only one bed), a ton of chemistry, and a surprisingly intense emotional connection later, Declan’s ready for happily ever after. But can he prove to Renee that he’s a risk worth taking?

There’s only one way to find out...
I'm always just so happy whenever Shannyn Schroeder has a new Chicago based book out. I just love her families and the Doyle's are one of my favorites. Of course, I also said that for the two prior series she did base in Chicago too. 

Up this time is Declan who seems to be one of those guys that just only really cares about himself and doesn't really work hard at anything. He goes through life just kind of floating. I wasn't sure at first what I thought about him as a hero and then in walked Renee's daughter Sadie and all that changed. I know this is supposed to be a romance between Declan and Renee but I'm sorry the relationship between Declan and Sadie is what sealed the deal for me. 

Don't get me wrong the relationship between Declan and Renee is a fun ride. I like how they both had to learn that there is more to the person they were living with then they first thought. I think you really saw the growth of both of them. Delan might have had farther to go but I believe they both need to see what they could become. 

There are so many fun moments within the story. I really enjoyed how they are when they lived like a family. Declan did more for Sadie then her own father and every time that Renee thought he'd let the little girl down he proved just how much of good guy he is. 

I really loved the story but sadly all it did was leave me wanting more of this family that's how much I enjoy them all. I will say that you don't have to read the prior series to really enjoy this one, though I don't know why you wouldn't want to but I will say try and get the first book in the series where you first meet Declan so you can really get to know him. Now all I have to do is wait for the next story.
