REVIEW: Together With You by Victoria Bylin w/SPOILERS!

{About the Book}

A Tender Contemporary Romance about Finding Unexpected Love
When a Lost Child warning blasts over the mall's PA system, toy store manager Carly Mason finds the little girl playing with a stuffed rabbit. Something about five-year-old Penny Tremaine is different. An ex-social worker, Carly recognizes that Penny suffers fetal alcohol effects, and a piece of Carly's own past suddenly confronts her. Never again will Carly become involved with a client. The risks are far too great. But something about Penny--and Penny's handsome father--tugs at Carly's heart. Before she has time to think it through, she agrees to a much-needed job as a nanny.
Dr. Ryan Tremaine knows he messed up his life. But this summer he will redeem himself. With his ex-wife remarried and on a trip far away, his two teenage sons and Penny are living under his roof full time. Ryan is dedicated to his sink-or-swim list, a plan to reconnect with his children. The first step: recruiting Carly Mason to be Penny's nanny.
Ryan never anticipated being so drawn to Carly, an attraction Carly seems to fight as much as he does. Could Carly be the missing piece that helps his family stay afloat, or will their blossoming romance only complicate things further? 

{My Review} With Spoilers!

Like I've said before I sat down to write this review, WOW!! This book was an absolute page turner from the very first page. The story begins with Ryan at the mall with his children and all of a sudden his youngest, Penny goes missing. She is eventually found at a toy store by our main character Carly. Carly has a past she has not dealt with yet. A past that has kept her from doing what she was called to do. However, she still has faith. Faith that she will be able to get past it. Ryan is the opposite of her, he has no faith. In the story Ryan describes himself as more of an agnostic than an atheist. Ryan also has a past. He had an affair which led to the birth of his daughter Penny, who has FASD-Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and ended his marriage. Penny's mother was killed in a car accident leaving Ryan to care for Penny. Ryan and Carly eventually have to come together to help care for Penny and all her special needs. Through everything Ryan and Carly find themselves falling for each other, but Carly is keeping Ryan at bay because he is not a believer.

I was wondering where Victoria was going to take this book, but once I got to the end I was highly satisfied. It was a page turner from the beginning and I really did stay up until almost 3 am to finish. I really enjoyed Ryan and even more and more as the story went on. Carly was a wonderful character, flaws and all. Oh boy--can we just talk about Ryan's conversion scene at the end of the book!! It was amazing and I cried while reading it. It was fantastic! If you looking for a great romance book for Spring or should get this book!
