RATING: READ IT
From the moment I read the blurb for Jennifer Van Wyk’s Feels Like Home, I knew I needed to bump it to the top of my TBR. It’s not often that the leading lady is a Christine, so I took that as another sign it was time for me to get reading!
I haven’t read Jennifer before but I was excited to jump into this story of single parents in their mid-30s, early-40s with teenage children. Andy + Christine’s story is a slow-burn, with a lot of getting to know each other and opening up their families to the possibility of something great. Both have been hurt in their marriages yet, as their friendship blossoms into something more, they don’t try to stop the feelings. Instead, they embrace what is happening between them.
I loved how Christine + Andy took an active role in each other’s children’s lives from the very start of their friendship. The kids played a pivotal role in their developing relationship, and it was so fun to watch these two families become one. There were some heartwarming moments between Christine and Andy’s twins, and between Andy and Christine’s daughter, Bri.
There was also a lot of emotion in this book as Christine deals with grief and Andy deals with betrayal—all the feels you would expect when one part of your life ends and another begins. All the feels! Through every moment, Christine + Andy’s relationship gets stronger. Their friends and children were cheering them on every step of the way. This was a really good read and I can’t wait to read Bri’s story next!
As of 02.22.18, Feels Like Home is available with Kindle Unlimited.
