A broken marriage. A fatherless boy. A past that won’t let go.

When baseball star Mike Connor stumbles across his ex-wife six years after their divorce, he’s stunned to find that she’s the mother of a kindergartner who wears his jersey. And shares his last name.

The last thing Meg Connor wants is to be around Mike. After all, he was the one who hurt and abandoned her. But she can’t deny him—or their son—time together to build a relationship, which means Mike is around too often, reminding her of why she fell in love with him so long ago. If only she could forget their past… The painful and the good.

Between their guilt and closely held hurts, Meg and Mike struggle against each other, their feelings, and God as they fight their own desires for the future, a future that might never happen when the past that tore them apart collides with their present.

I give this book 2 stars!

I would have given this book 5 stars if the the H Mike didn’t cheat on his ex wife and then later on he finds out that he fathered a child with the ow and if Meg the h his ex wife had decided not to take him back.
I didn’t like how it was his last girlfriend that persuaded him to see Meg and that Meg had his child and didn’t tell him, I didn’t like how he took his ex girlfriend to an event that was going to be televised and for Meg to see him holding hands with her, I thought he wasn’t serious in winning her back by doing that despite that Meg didn’t want to go with him.
I was happy that Meg divorced him after the affair as he would have carried on having affairs seeing as he was a bit of a playboy despite that not being mentioned in the book.
I liked the sport theme seeing as Mike was a baseball player and I liked their little boy Terrell and the relationship he had with his dad despite only meeting him, I liked the suspense that played around Mike and I guessed earlier on what was going on with the ow so I wasn’t shocked.
I didn’t like how his ex wife blamed herself for his affair and I didn’t like how she quickly forgave him and easily accepted his child with the ow and in no way did he grovel and I was in a way hoping that she would find peace and happiness because it was afterall a christian romance theme and she did but I hoped she wouldn’t take him back but the book was all about forgiveness.
