Together With You by Victoria Bylin

Sometimes the most unexpected love can be exactly what a heart needs...When a Lost Child warning blares over the mall's PA system, Carly Mason finds the little girl playing with a stuffed rabbit. Something about Penny Tremaine is different. An ex-social worker, Carly recognizes that the child suffers fetal alcohol effects, and a piece of Carly's past suddenly confronts her. Never again will she become personally involved with a client. The risks are far too great. But something about Penny--and Penny's handsome father--tugs at Carly's heart.

Dr. Ryan Tremaine is trying to put his life back together. With his ex-wife remarried and on a trip far away, his two teenage sons and Penny are living under his roof full time. Ryan has put his faith in his Sink-or-Swim list, a plan to reconnect with his children. The first step: recruit Carly Mason to be Penny's nanny.

Ryan never anticipated being so drawn to Carly, an attraction Carly seems to fight as much as he does. Could Carly be the missing piece that helps his family stay afloat, or will their blossoming romance only complicate things further?

My Thoughts
I really enjoyed this book. The romance was just right, the writing awesome and the characters well thought out. I didn't have any trouble staying engrossed in the story. It flowed wonderfully and there was never any lag to it. The story was steady from start to finish. I enjoyed the spiritual aspect and appreciated Carly's never wavering faith. Victoria did an excellent job of blending faith and real life together without compromising the gospel. She also made Carly seem real and human, not like a perfect Christian know-it-all which is what I have found in some books.  I love stories that read as if they are happening in real life not completely made up fiction. I also was able to learn something in this book. I knew nothing about FASD before reading this book. It brought to light many things I didn't even realize. FASD is a very sad thing especially since it is so preventable. I enjoyed Victoria's writing very much and can't wait to read more of her books.
I was blessed with a copy of this book by TBCN in exchange for an honest review. A positive review was not required.
