Clarence Thunder may not be as young as he once was . . .
But is he as good once as he ever was? He hopes so. He’s been watching Tammy Tall Trees, the young single mother who works next door in the Child Care Center. He wants to show Tammy he can take care of her and her young son—but can he compete with the boy’s real father?
Tammy was crushed when her old boyfriend abandoned her after she got pregnant. Since then, she’s put her son first—which means no dating. Who would want a broke single mother, anyway? Certainly not Clarence—one of the best men on the White Sandy. Until one day, the older man starts making her coffee—and bringing her son toys. Can she put herself first—or will her past catch up to them both?
A sweet, well written novella about two people taking a chance on each other and not letting their pasts, or insecurities, keep them from what could turn out to be a real good thing. I pretty much fell in love with Clarence within the first page, maybe second, of this novella and seriously, what isn’t there to love about him? He noticed that there had been a slight, but good change in his relationship with Tammy, made a plan to see if what he thought was real and took a chance. He’s nervousness at getting it right was just too sweet and I loved how honest he was with Tammy once things got under way. He had a few moments, but there was no way to fault him for it. Tammy, even though she was burned by Mikey’s father, she realized that she wanted to see if what she was feeling for Clarence was real and like with Clarence I loved that she spoke up and told him what she was feeling instead of pretending that it was good. I’ve enjoyed all the books in the series so far, and loved the little scene with Rebel and Nobody, and this is a wonderful little slice of life installment for two characters that we’ve gotten to meet and see throughout the series.
