Review: Adam’s Boys by Anna Clifton #COYER

Adam’s Boys 
by Anna Clifton
Released Date: Published September 1st 2013 by Escape Publishing
Pages: 118
View/Purchase: Goodreads, Amazon, B&N

Wrong girl — wrong time? Adam’s fling with Abbie just weeks after the death of his wife may have been all wrong, but their time together gave him the strength to return home to his newborn son, Pete, and start their new life together. 

Wrong guy — wrong time? Abbie's fling with Adam may have been all wrong, but their time together gave her Henry, the sunshine in her life, and although Adam is long gone, Abbie can never regret the time they spent together. 

But two wrongs don't necessarily make a right. Adam Cooper is back, and when he learns the truth about his unknown son, he is hell-bent on creating a home and family for his boys, even if it means blackmailing Abbie into taking part. 

Abbie has scars from her own tumultuous childhood, and losing Henry would destroy her. But with only mistrust and pain to bind them, can she and Adam ever find a way through regret to love and the family they could be?

My Review:

Adam's Boys is not just about two people falling completely in love, but it is also a story of redemption. From the very beginning I was captivated by the cover and title, it all seemed very mysterious. But as I was reading, the story started unfolding and it became completely different to what I thought it was going to be about from the start. Anna Clifton does a very good job of describing the feelings of both individuals who have been hurt in the past and whose only salvation is to be with each other. 

After Adam's wife died of cancer, he was left alone to take care of his three-month-old baby. Having lost his wife left him hopeless and so he decides to flee to Australia where he suddenly finds himself spending time with Abbie. It was all supposed to be a fling, but what happened between them ended up connecting them even more after they went their separate ways. Now three years later, he is back in Australia and this time he is surprised to find out what he left behind. 

After their time together, Abbie thought that there was a connection between her and Adam. Nothing could have prepared her for what was going to happen the minute Adam left. Now three years later, she sees him again and is determined to confront Adam and tell him that during their time together left her with his son. 

The story is beautifully written, and it is also very touching. I liked the interaction between the characters and how they were able to overcome their pasts in order to move on. Although the story flowed, it seemed a bit rushed at times. But aside from that, the story had a good ending/resolution. I enjoyed reading it very much and I recommend everyone to give it a try.
