A love story and a family worth fighting for.
Hugo and Kevin strive to put their lives back together after tragedy, doing everything in their power to create a stable life. Hugo’s acting career is back on track, and Kevin hires a nanny to help with the kids as they discover their new normal. But when Erin’s parents seek full custody of Brooke and Finn, that stability is shattered.
With Hugo working in LA or New York, the distance from his new family gets to him. At home, the nanny’s hands-on approach leaves Hugo feeling pushed out, so he leaves his beloved apartment and eclectic neighborhood behind to move in with Kevin.
Hugo has a hard time fitting in with the suburbanites with Kevin’s passive-aggressive “friends” making Hugo feel anything but welcome. As the custody case heads to mediation, Brooke is bullied about having two dads, and Hugo realizes his mere presence might be doing more harm than good.
Hugo must decide to stay and fight for his family or leave and let them live in peace.
I have absolutely been under a spell since being introduced to the North Star Trilogy. Posy Roberts' had me falling in love with her characters Kevin and Hugo from her first novel Spark.
The final book and chapter in their lives was one that was met head on with heart wrenching challenges. After the lost of a beautiful woman, and the mother to Kevin's amazing children he and Hugo are faced with the possibility of losing them. It was an emotional roller coaster that they all struggled with, and now months later are facing more heartache.
However, that is not the only challenges our new couple with a family faces. Hugo being away from his job takes a toll more so on Hugo. Kevin still having some backlash from his snubbing country club friends who look down at not only his new relationship but also at Hugo.
I laughed, cried, and shared in all of their struggles and triumphs. I loved the co-characters of Russell and Sunshine because they helped along the way to give them structure as well as advise.
