Wildest Dreams Book Review

I was interested in reading all of the new books that were coming out so I put a ton of books on the reserve list at the library.  Most of them came in at the same time so I was trying to read all of the books with all of the books that I was supposed to be reviewing.  The Wildest Dreams (Thunder Point) by Robyn Carr was the next in my pile from the library from reserve so I was going to get it done before it was due back to the library.  I was on a race against time with no renewals :)

Blake Smiley searched the country for just the right place to call home. The professional triathlete has traveled the world, but Thunder Point has what he needs to put down the roots he's never had. In the quiet coastal town, he can focus on his training without distractions. Until he meets his new neighbors and everything changes.

Lin Su Simmons and her teenage son, Charlie, are fixtures at Winnie Banks's house as Lin Su nurses Winnie through the realities of ALS. A single mother, Lin Su is proud of taking charge and never showing weakness. But she has her hands full coping with a job, debt and Charlie's health issues. And Charlie is asking questions about his family history—questions she doesn't want to answer.

When Charlie enlists Blake's help to escape his overprotective mother, Lin Su resents the interference in her life. But Blake is certain he can break through her barriers and be the man she and Charlie need. When faced with a terrible situation, Blake comes to the rescue, and Lin Su realizes he just might be the man of her dreams. Together, they recognize that family is who you choose it to be.

It was as great as all the other books in the series have been with a wonderful story getting more into the life of one of the characters that we have known for a little bit only as Winnie's nurse.  It was great to see her stubborn side and find out what happens when she is pushed to accept "charity."  She leaves the horrible neighborhood that she has been living in and moves to a nice small apartment in Thunder Point.  Her whole life starts to turn around and become so much happier until she has a fight with her son about living the past alone.  You have to pick up the book to find out what happens but it is sure to leave you surprised.  I hope that you check out this book and others in the series. It is a wonderful series with great characters and even better writing.  I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did.
