THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER"A hilarious, tender, and altogether life-affirming gem of a book." --Emily Henry, bestselling author of Beach ReadA brilliant and touching romantic comedy about two polar opposites, one adorable dog, and living every day to its fullest. When Vanessa Price quit her job to pursue her dream of traveling the globe, she wasn't expecting to gain millions of YouTube followers who shared her joy of seizing every moment. For her, living each day to its fullest isn't just a motto. Her mother and sister never saw the age of 30, and Vanessa doesn't want to take anything for granted. But after her half sister suddenly leaves Vanessa in custody of her baby daughter, life goes from "daily adventure" to "next-level bad" (now with bonus baby vomit in hair). The last person Vanessa expects to show up offering help is the hot lawyer next door, Adrian Copeland. After all, she barely knows him. No one warned her that he was the Secret Baby Tamer or that she'd be spending a whole lot of time with him and his geriatric Chihuahua. Now she's feeling things she's vowed not to feel. Because the only thing worse than falling for Adrian is finding a little hope for a future she may never see.

"Dual POV. This book is fun and heart breaking but does have a HEA. There is a lot more to the storyline than a straight forward romance and it deals with some tough topics. It’s a slow burn with fade to black. I usually prefer a steamy and light romance but this was a really beautiful story and even with the heavy topics it didn’t bog the story down with so much emotion it makes it hard to read. Really enjoyed this book!"
"I have been reading a lot of romance books in the last couple of months but this is my FAVORITE by far! It shares both sides of the love story which I think is the best way to share a story. It is very realistic, their love is so pure and blooms naturally. If you are willing to laugh and cry throughout a book then this is a definite MUST read! "
"This book is such a page turner and I couldn’t put it down. It plays on all your emotions- comedy, drama, romance and more. Vanessa is a travel vlogger that has run into a family emergency that’s put her career on hold. She meets her hunky neighbor-Adrian an attorney with a sad love life. Vanessa is convinced she won’t see another year so is afraid to give love a chance. Adrian is falling hard and fast in love but doesn’t think he has a chance. You have to read this story told by both sides. "
