Once you marry True Love, then what?

Robin and Anna are back. The wedding is over, they are happily married, and living in Anna’s beloved hometown. Plus they have the blessed new challenge of twins. Sure, each has annoying bad habits, they’re seriously sleep deprived, and a few cracks have appeared in their unblemished marriage. After all, this is the real world not a fairy tale. Nothing will destroy this idiotic existence.

Then Robin is offered the promotion of his career. It’s perfect except it means a big move away from their family, friends, and home. With neither willing to budge on the issue, the first major fight of their marriage shakes it to its foundations.

Then a tragic accident changes everything. Can this couple find their way back to each other and stay Stuck on You

 

Review: This was a quick read at only 95 pages and a wonderful love story told with Anna and Robin at its core and lots of reminisces and flashbacks.  Not having read the other books in the series I didn’t feel lost because enough history was told to keep my interest.

Anna and Robin had a strong love and although sleep deprived due to the birth of twins several months earlier it did shine through.  Their arguments and quibbling never lasted long and they always made up pretty quickly.  I loved the phrase, stuck on you, and what it meant to them and how they were always telling each other “I love you” or “love you”.  I also loved Robin’s nickname for Anna, Carolina Girl. The way Anna related to the twins, Robby and River, was heartwarming – talking to them throughout about their dad and their love for each other.  It was a hoot to hear about their expressions and how they fit right in with whatever dialogue was going on at the time.  When an unfortunate accident occurs not only is Robin always at Anna’s side but her brother and sister-in-law step up to the plate and help out.  Watching the vigil and the aftermath was heart-wrenching at times.

There was small town life, family, romance, love, heartache, fear, arguments, apologies, tears, laughter, memories, happiness, good things and bad happenings.  There was nice closure but it left enough interest to hope for another book in the series to see what else takes place in Anna and Robin’s life.  I was confused about who C & C are since this is book four in the series and a wedding didn’t take place in this book.

Epsilon is a new to me author.  I look forward to reading the previous books in this series: Wedding Belle Blues, Take a Chance on Me, When You Believe, and That Night.

Favorite Quote: “You had, and still do have, the most important thing: my heart.  There will never be another for me.” Robin surprised her, yet again, by taking her hand and twirling her around the small kitchen in an impromptu dance.  “I’m stuck on you, remember?”…
