Minor Adjustments by Rachael Renee Anderson
Goodreads Description: Chicago businessman and bachelor Devon Pierce is completely unprepared to be the guardian of Australian four-year-old Ryan Caldwell. But Ryan's solicitor, Stella Walker, won't take no for an answer. Little does Devon know this "minor" adjustment will grant him a future he never expected to have. Told in a fast-paced, poignant, and witty style, Minor Adjustments will take you on a journey of humor, growth, romance, and love.
My Thoughts: I've been wanting to read this book since it came out! The cover and the description just grabbed me. It might be because I love the movie "Baby Boom", and it seemed like the basis was about the same.
Having said that, the premise of both stories - a very focused businessperson being given a child from someone that they didn't know very well, was about the only similarity between them. I love that this story was set in Australia, a place that I really want to visit!
I loved the characters! Cute Ryan would be able to steal anybody's heart, Stella was very tenacious and I loved all the trivia that she knew, and I enjoyed watching Devon's change of heart. Devon's parents and family dynamics really cracked me up. His dad was great! Justin was a perfect bad guy. I really did worry there at the end about where Ryan would end up. And, is there really a chance for Devon and Stella to have any type of a relationship with one being in the US and the other in Australia? Hmmm
I really enjoyed this book! I would give it 4.5 stars. Very clean content.
I won this book in a blog giveaway. Rachael, herself, signed it before she sent it on to me!
