***RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW*** In This Life by Cora Brent

Title: In This Life
Author: Cora Brent
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 15, 2018


Things I know about Nash Ryan:



Wickedly hot.


Probably not the kind of man anyone should trust with an infant.

Definitely not the kind of man any woman should trust with her heart.

When Nash returned to town for the sake of his baby brother I thought I already understood who he was.

I also thought I was done giving my heart away until he proved otherwise.

But we don’t stand a chance.

Everything is ready to unravel.

And the secrets I’ve kept will be our undoing.


This isn’t the first time I’ve known tragedy.

Maybe that’s why I’ve chosen to remain alone.

But my life of solitude ends now because a terrible twist of fate has made me

the guardian of my four-month-old brother.

Suddenly I’ve got a kid to raise and a family business to save and there’s no time for anything else.

That’s why Kathleen Doyle and I made this arrangement.

Once a skinny nerd girl who used to follow me around everywhere, she’s now a single mom with flaming hair, a killer body and too many responsibilities.

We told each other it was just sex.

We told each other there were no strings attached, no expectations.

We lied.

And the consequences will cost us.

But I’m not surrendering this new family without a battle.

Because in this life we might only get one chance to have it all.

When something beautiful comes from heartbreak... That is exactly what this story is about and i absolutely loved it!!!!! I mean hold it to my heart and smile loved it!!!

Nash is a loner.  He's living a self imposed exiled life.  He needs and wants no one.  He works pretty much from home and only has his dog Roxie for company.  He's pretty much estranged from his family and only keeps in touch by the occasional phone call.  One night after a brawl he gets a call in the early hours of the morning informing him of a tragedy.  He jumps in his truck and drives to the town he grew up in.  There he suddenly finds himself the guardian of a baby brother he's never met.  He has no idea why they chose him.  He's never looked after a baby before and doesn't know what to do.  

Kathleen is a single mom to a beautiful little 3 year old by the name of Emma.  She's struggling by doing accountancy work for local businesses.  She ran home from college after getting pregnant with no qualifications to her name.  Emma is the best thing in her life and she'll never regret having her but her life has turned out nothing like she expected.  Always the high achiever at school she was the one most expected to succeed.

When a relative of her dies she steps in to look after her baby for a while until the guardian arrives.  When he does he's just as she remembers at school.  Hot, brooding and totally a badboy.  She always had a crush on Nash but he never noticed her.  

Nash has no friends in town and Kathleen is about the only person he can ask for help off.  Nash struggles to deal with his grief and regrets and looking after a baby.  Kathleen does the right thing and helps him.  Can they just be friends with maybe some added benefits.  Can they keep their hearts and emotions out of it for the sake of raising the children?

Gah!! I just fell so in love with this book it's not even funny.  I'm swooning all over the entire darn thing!!! Honestly there wasn't one single thing i didn't like.

I fell massively for Nash.  He's on my Book Boyfriend list for sure!!! He's just sooooo YUM!!!!! The scenes... scratch that every scene with him in with a child or baby made me hot under the collar!!! Yes at the start he is a little bit of a moody so and so but he'd been through a lot in his young life and he didn't just edge into my heart he pretty much smashed his way in there.  Even though he'd never looked after a baby i loved how he instantly connected to the baby and stepped up to look after him even though he had no idea why he was chosen.  

Kat was just perfect for him.  Bossy but not too much so she made sure that Nash would accept her help.  She also held him up when i think he might have fallen.  But my favorite thing about her was that although she comes across as kind of innocent she was also massively sexy!! It actually made me laugh how sure she was of herself that way and when Nash got that about her then the sparks flew!! 

There is a fair bit of angst here.  Poor Nash had lost a lot in his life and Kat had her own personal demons to fight.  But they completed and mended the broken pieces of each other so perfectly i can feel my chest constrict with happiness for these two.

The kids play a major role in this book and baby Colin was just adorable!! But Emma... oh my goodness i wanted to pluck her out the pages and give her a great big cuddle!!!

The plot grabs you right from the start.  The lows will break you.  The video clip?... That's where my tears went!! The highs will make you feel on top of the world.  They're like a mini Brady bunch!!! I didn't see the little twist of Kat's past coming and i loved how it was dealt with.  There were laughs and tears throughout in a perfect balance.

Just brilliant!  This is why Cora Brent is one of my favorite authors.  You always leave her books with a smile and little spring in your step that maybe everything will turn out ok in the end!

5 beautiful stars!!

But no matter what’s at stake I have no intention of giving up on this family. 

Because in this life we might only have once chance to get it right...
