Title: His to Cherish
Chelsea Dwyer arrives home from her job at the middle-school library in Latham Hills, Michigan, expecting another quiet evening—until she hears the screams for help through her living room window. As the first witness to a terrible accident involving two local students, Chelsea doesn’t anticipate how her own life will be irrevocably changed by the father of one of the boys. In the wake of tragedy, she’s the only one who seems to understand his grief. Chelsea’s a survivor, too—and she knows that there are brighter days ahead.
As a single father, Aidan Deveraux worked his entire life to provide a stable home for his son, Derrick. Without him, Aidan feels the deepest despair imaginable. The one thing that keeps him going is his connection with the woman who tried to save his son. Hard as he tries, Aidan just can’t stay away. Chelsea’s warm embrace is the comforting solace he desperately craves—and it doesn’t hurt that Aidan had noticed the beautiful librarian and wanted to ask her out for years. Now that she’s in his life, he doesn’t ever want to let go.

Please hold while I wipe my face and blow my nose from crying and sniffling all over the place. Good Lord, this book has done a number on me. So much emotion and feels that I’m still feeling the effects. Ok, let me gather myself…
At the end of Fireside 2, we’re left with a cliffhanger that made our hearts drop. This picks up exactly where it left off and, sigh…sets the tone for the entire book. After reading the blurb, it’s not a surprise that there is an extremely tragic accident; one that no parent should have to live through. So obviously, as a parent, this was a very emotional read for me. I’ve liked, if not loved, the other books in this series, so I knew that the author wouldn’t steer us wrong. And she didn’t. In fact, she wrote a pretty amazing book.
Ok, I’m still crying…dammit.
Chelsea is the school librarian. The hot blond who’s always there for the kids and the sensible one out of the “girls” that hang out at Fireside. She’s had a huge crush on Aiden for-ever and can never get enough of just staring at him whenever she gets the chance. But everyone’s life changes drastically when Aiden’s son dies from that tragic skateboarding accident. The nurturer in her takes over and she’s caught up in trying to help Aiden in any way she can. And exposes her heart in the process.
Aiden’s life just came to a crashing halt. No parent is EVER prepared to hear that they’ll never see their child again. But that’s exactly what happens to Aiden. He’s got best friends that have helped him through some of the toughest times of his life, trying to be there for him, but all he wants to do is be with Chelsea. But why? Is it because she reminds him of his son? Is it because he’s always liked her and is using her as a crutch? Whatever the reason, it seems to be helping. But for how long before he’s forced to “deal” with reality?
SO MANY FEELS!!!! OMG you guys. I just can’t even express myself right now. This book takes us through the tragedy, the coping, the healing, the anger/hate, the love, the….everything you could possibly think of when dealing with losing a loved one. This was so wonderfully put together. The time frame worked GREAT! The pace of healing/dealing, etc was spot on. Chelsea needs to win a freaking award due to her patience and loving heart. I’m so happy these two found each other, even if it took a tragedy to get them there. It’s nice to know that they’ll be there for each other, for whatever they need.
P.s. – On a happy note…..BRING. ON. CAMDEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
