“Take a breath…”
Everything I Never Wanted is a contemporary romance with complex characters and a tender story of love, life, and forgiveness.
“I’m going to kiss the hell out of you.”
Tucker Jaxson is a single dad who loves his daughter fiercely. Tucker is a man who will do anything for his daughter Shayne. After getting burned and experiencing a loss like no other, he never thought he would find love again. When Camryn Parker crashes into his life, Tucker begins to believe in love again. Camryn and Tucker share a passionate and tender connection and with the addition of Shayne, a beautiful family is formed. But when secrets from the past begin to resurface, Tucker will discover that unconditional love is worth fighting for.
“Everything I thought I’d never wanted ended up being the very thing I could never live without.”
Told in dual POV, Everything I Never Wanted is one of those reads that you think you have all figured out and then BOOM there is a surprise twist! The physical connection between Camryn and Tucker is explosive and just when you think your Kindle may not be able to handle the heat, Shayne adds a bolt of sweetness that makes your heart melt. A steady tempo is set as each moment blends seamlessly into the next. Although I felt certain choices made by both of the characters were frustrating at times, the intensity of their circumstances was the catalyst for true healing to begin.
Overall, I highly recommend Everything I Never Wanted to anyone who enjoys a contemporary romance full of passion, forgiveness, and one sweet little girl who will melt your heart and put a smile on your face that will stay for days. This is my first K. Street read and I can guarantee it will not be my last. If you are looking for a sweet summer read, look no further. Camryn, Tucker, and Shayne is one beautiful family that I will never forget.
