Sheri – I like Sheri for having the courage and will to not only agree to be a surrogate, but to take on the responsibilities for the children when the parents die. Of course, it’s not altogether surprising, considering the truth about the egg donor. She’s a good woman, and I like her chosen career which explains how she’s able to stay at home with the twins.
Miguel – Passionate and determined, he’s a good man, looking to take care of his own, and I can’t blame him for that. However, his methods (strong-arming her, taking advantage when she’s got a very sick child) could use some work, and thankfully Sheri didn’t just blithely fall into bed with him out of gratitude.
I had issues with the story, most of which I can’t mention in a review because it would spoil the story. However, two big blaring things that I can mention got me. First was the unreality of the situation when the baby boy needed surgery. Sheri’s reason for marrying Miguel is so she would have the cash up front for the baby’s heart surgery. I’m sorry, but no hospital in the US would require full payment up front. Yes, you might have to make a partial payment/deductible up front, but even with that hospitals will generally work with you. Second – at like 4 months old, the babies were getting bottles at night and SIPPY CUPS during the day? No 4-month-old uses a sippy cup. They can’t even crawl yet.
These two definitely had a path to walk and it took them a while. I liked the secondary cast (well, Charlie and Miguel’s mom. The housekeeper…not so much). I was glad to see these two get their HEA ending. They deserved it (though it would have come a lot sooner if they’d just talked to each other). Thanks to the author for sending this to review!
