This was a super cute summer read. I immediately fell in love with the three main characters and I appreciated the way the book balanced Patrick’s experience taking care of the kids with him looking into starting his career again. I just didn’t find this book particularly memorable and I felt like the love story that’s developing throughout the book is so much of an afterthought it may as well have not been there.

In the beginning of the  book everyone was just too *cute* which was really annoying and like the author was trying to hard but I kept pushing through and it did pick up by the end with everyone learning
Not sure why it’s marketed as a comedy though - I didn’t find it funny
