Not Through Loving You - Patricia Preston - Review

In the Southern town of Lafayette Falls, a new life brings together a woman with everything to lose and a doctor with everything to prove.
When a sickly infant is surrendered at the Lafayette Falls Medical Center, and orphaned soon after, pediatrician Aaron Kendall arranges to adopt him. After a painful divorce, the busy baby doc is about to realize his own dream of becoming a father when the baby’s beautiful estranged aunt turns up. She doesn’t exactly approve of the Kendall bachelor pad complete with Aaron’s cranky dad and wacky brother, forcing Aaron to form a risky alliance with her.
Country singer-songwriter Lia Montgomery barely knew her half-sister, but she’s determined her tiny nephew goes to a good home. If only she fit the bill herself, but her stressful life on the road is no place for a baby. Yet despite her misgivings, as she gets to know Aaron, she realizes the smart and sexy doctor is everything a child could want in a dad and more unsettling, everything she’s ever hoped for in a man. After all she’s put him through, is it too late to form a family and maybe put a song in the good doctor’s heart?


3.5 Stars 

Not Through Loving You is the third title in the Love Heals All series, but can easily be read as a standalone.  Overall this is a fast paced, enemies to lovers contemporary romance with heart and humor.  

Aaron is a completely charismatic hero.  The heroine Lia on the other hand at times I found a tad frustrating the way she had a tendency to fly off the hand before gaining all the facts.  The chemistry is intense and palpable between this pair.  Both the heroine and the hero have baggage from their pasts they need to overcome before they will be able to find a happy ever after. 

The side characters were very entertaining.  I particularly enjoyed Aaron's family members, especially his bother Stevie. 

Overall a well written heartwarming romance, of family, love and forgiveness told in a dual point of view, and I look forward to reading more of Patricia Preston's work in the future.
