Four years ago, my dreams were shattered in an instant.
Three months ago, I found something I haven't had in years.
That hope came in the form of a sexy, carefree hockey player named Brody Murphy. He swooped in and won me over with his big heart and the way he cared for me…and my girls. When they look at him, they see the father they've never had.
Now, my past and present are colliding and the outcome might just be too much for me to bear. Can I make the right decision when I’ve spent my whole life making the wrong ones?
Room for More is the much anticipated follow up of Beth’s debut novel Room for You. Room for More picks up where the previous novel leaves off, with Kacie starting her nursing internship. She hears a familiar, but long ago heard voice and finds herself coming face to face with her past – Zach, the biological father of her twin girls.
Kacie tries to maintain distance from Zach in order to reduce the amount of stress Brody is bombarded with. This year his contract is up so he needs to keep his head in the game. However, with Zach’s sudden reappearance, Kacie has to wonder how this will not only affect her girls, but her relationship with Brody when, and if, she lets him know Zack is back.
Beth’s books offer something many books are lacking – balance. There is just the right amount of romance, steamy sex, drama, and angst. No one theme dominates the book making it so easy to love without getting too caught up in one area.
Brody – oh Brody! I cannot tell you how much I adore this man, I mean character. He’s so real – not so over the top that you know someone like him could never really exist in the word. He had a genuine love for both Kacie and the “Twinkies” that makes your heart melt. And the way he speaks when filled with lust makes me wanna go double click my own mouse! Yeah, he’s that good!
I was thrilled to get to know more about Zach and Kacie’s background, mainly Zach’s reasoning for leaving 5 years ago. I may not agree with his choices, but my heart broke a little for him when I read about the demons of his past.
Overall, I love Brody & Kacie. I love this book! I love Beth’s writing!
“Good morning!” I bounced into the kitchen.
“Hi?” Mom said, turning to face me from the stove. “What’s with you today? You’re unusually perky.”
“Nothing. Just excited to see Brody tonight.” The girls had already finished eating and were coloring at the island as I walked over and kissed them on the tops of their heads.
Mom rolled her eyes and chuckled. “It’s only been a couple days since you two have seen each other.”
“I know.” I went over to the stove and scooped up some scrambled eggs on my plate before I sat with Lucy and Piper at the island. “I’m pathetic.”
“A little, but it’s sweet.” She winked at me.
“Wait! Before I get too excited, is there a guest room available tonight?”
Mom turned back from the stove with a blank look on her face and stared at me. After a second she pulled her brows in and tilted her head to the side suspiciously. “Did he not tell you?”
I was confused. “Tell me what?”
A slow grin grew on her face and she slowly shook her head. “Oh, that boy. You better hold on to him, Kacie.”
“What are you talking about?”
“When he told me about you being uncomfortable, um—” She glanced at the girls and back at me. I could tell she was trying to speak in code because of them. “—being roommates at night, I told him that he was welcome to a guest room anytime he wanted one. I said I’d save one for him.” She walked over to the island and put her hand on her hip while I continued shoveling eggs into my mouth. “He insisted I not be out any money because of all this, so he prepaid for one guest room for an entire year. Three hundred and sixty-five nights.”
My mouth fell open as my fork dropped to the plate, making a horrible clanging noise. “He paid for a whole year?”
She nodded. “A whole year. He’s crazy about you, Girl, and clearly confident in your relationship—at least for a year.”
“Be right back!” I jumped off the stool and ran to my bedroom, grabbing my phone off the nightstand.
YOU PAID FOR A WHOLE YEAR?!?!?
My foot tapped impatiently for two minutes, waiting for his response. Finally, my phone beeped.
B: YOU TALKED TO YOUR MOM, HUH?
WHY DIDN’T YOU TELL ME?
B: WHAT? AND MISS THIS MOMENT? ARE YOU KIDDING? SURPRISING YOU IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS IN THE WORLD, KACIE. WELL, THAT AND WATCHING THE LOOK ON YOUR FACE WHEN YOU COME.
