Yasmen and Josiah have a marriage all of their friends envy but after a year of loss their marriage has ended and they’ve moved on to being business partners and co-parents. They are navigating their new reality trying to balance their children’s reactions and their own feelings.
I thought this was a very real and healthy depiction of love, divorce and loss in modern times. I know most of the raves are about their love story but as a child of divorce, I was much more invested in their children’s story arc. I liked that while Yasmen and Josiah were working on their own feelings and mental health they really prioritized being good parents. I thought it was important how they showed the impact of therapy on each of them. I also liked the integration of their business expansion showing how a healthy family balances priorities.
This is a great second chance romance if that is your thing. It’s also a bit spicy (too much for me) but if that’s your thing, you’ll love it.
