VIRTUAL TOUR REVIEW & GIVEAWAY- Suddenly Engaged (Lake Haven #3) by Julia London


Can Kyra and Dax let go so easily—or has love become a preexisting condition?


SUDDENLY ENGAGED
Lake Haven #3
Julia London
Releasing July 25, 2017
Montlake


Single mother Kyra Kokinos spends her days waiting tables, her nights working on her real estate license, and every spare moment with her precocious six-year-old daughter, Ruby—especially when Ruby won’t stop pestering their grumpy next-door neighbor. At first glance, Dax Bishop seems like the kind of gruff, solitary guy who’d be unlikely to offer a cup of sugar, let alone a marriage proposal. But that’s exactly what happens when Ruby needs life-saving surgery.

Dax showed up in East Beach a year ago, fresh from a painful divorce and looking for a place where he could make furniture and avoid people. Suddenly his life is invaded by an inquisitive munchkin in sparkly cowboy boots—and her frazzled, too-tempting mother. So he presents a practical plan: his insurance will help Ruby, and then they can divorce—zero strings attached.

But soon Kyra and Dax find their engagement of convenience is simple in name only. As their attraction deepens, a figure from the past reappears, offering a way out. Can Kyra and Dax let go so easily—or has love become a preexisting condition?
I liked this book, but I found that I really wasn't a fan of Kyra. Just some of the things she does didn't sit well with me. I really enjoyed Ruby and Dax though, even if Dax wasn't a fan of Ruby at the start. I will say that I admired Kyra's drive and tenacity when it came to taking care of Ruby, and that she's not portrayed as a woman who seemingly has the world at her fingertips.

First, he broke my heart. Then, he ripped it out of my chest.
Fifteen years ago, Beckett Longstead broke up with me, then disappeared.
One stormy night, he shows up at my doorstep bloodied and bruised, begging me for help.
I should’ve shut the door in his face. Should’ve left him to bleed.
But instead, I take him in and fix him, just like when we were teenagers.
Beckett has secrets, though, and everything about him screams guilt.
He’s hiding something terrible, but he won’t tell me what.
He claims he can’t remember. That he has amnesia.
He’s sick, plagued by nightmares, and his memory loss troubles me.
But he’s got no one else. 
So against my better judgment, I welcome him into my home, and back into my vulnerable heart.
Little did I know, his sins would destroy us. 
Little did I know, his secrets would ruin everything.
Loved this book! The fact that Beckett and Terri still have feelings for each other after 15 years is a testament that young love isn't always just a crush, but the real thing. Of course Terri is hesitant to let him back into her life after the way he disappeared all the years before; and the fact that he doesn't remember what happened to him definitely sounds suspect, yet because of that same love, Terri finds herself offering shelter to him. Despite it looking like Beckett is a "bad boy" he's really got a good heart and
