An Alisa Review: Because of Sam by J.D. Walker

Standard

Rating: 3 stars out of 5

Martin Wesley’s job as a CFO is very stressful. All he seems to do lately is work, with no end in sight. But one morning he answers a knock on his door and comes face to face with a social worker and a sad little girl named Samantha Wesley … his niece. Martin is her only next of kin, and he has no idea what to do.

In steps daycare worker Ryan Gentles, who is very understanding and helpful, and Martin is beyond grateful. It doesn’t hurt that the man is cute as a button, too.

With his heart pulled in two directions, Martin has to make a choice: continue to be a pawn in his company’s games or find a new purpose by taking care of his niece, quitting his job, and reaching out for a love he never thought possible.

This is a cute story but doesn’t have much depth.  Martin has been working himself to the bone for as long as he can remember when suddenly he has his niece thrust upon him and he needs to figure out his priorities.  Ryan steps up to help Martin when seeing him flustered the first day with Sam and is basically Martin’s savior in relation to anything childlike.

I felt like I was watch this story from the sidelines and didn’t get much to connect with the characters.  I don’t know how Martin can go from a completely workaholic jerk to suddenly wanting to live in the country and raise Sam in less than 2 days.  Their decisions, even how quickly Sam changed how shy she was within a day just didn’t add up in the end

The cover art by Written Ink Designs is nice and has an adorable picture of little miss Sam.
