Charlie “Chase” Rhodes
It’s funny how when you’re a kid you think you have it all figured out. You think you know who you’re going to be when you grow up, what you’re going to do. And yet, you can’t actually see yourself as a grown-up. I mean, grown-ups are old. And they’re constantly saying shit we think we’ll never say and doing shit we think we’ll never do.
When I think back to how many times I said I’d never do this and I’d never say that, I want to cringe. Because you know what? I do all of it now.

Here we see how a family is built. ...There is commitment and it felt like I was taken out of a romance novel and plopped right down into a real neighborhood, watching a real family take shape. A family with three men, and so much more. If you love Cardeno C, if you have never read any of CC's books I highly recommend this book. This book is a must read. It will break your stereotypes down, it will make you laugh until you cry and weep because you mourn. And then when you get to the end you get the joy of starting all over at the…
There were a lot of funny moments where I found myself giggling out loud and looking like an idiot, like when Scott and Adan went shopping for dinner, and Adan’s drunken “seriously”... ahhh…*wipes away tear*, you really had to be there.
I really liked it
