Review: 'Uprooted'

Welcome to Review Wednesday! Today I have Jasmine Aherne's Uprooted. It's a Sweet Romance for those of you that don't like the erotic. It's a wonderful story with real characters that warm the heart.
  Uprooted by Jasmine Aherne
Marianne Dawson is in no way going to fall in love. The experience she’s had with the subject wasn’t good so she’s decided life would be easier if she excludes it. Then Mari, as she’s known to her friends, has an unexpected accident. She wakes in the hospital to the handsome face of Dr. Noah Campbell and instantly realizes this man is someone she desperately wants to get to know.

Dr. Noah Campbell is back from working over seas. His life has been uprooted from the news that he has a thirteen years old daughter whose mother passed suddenly. With everything upside down the last thing Noah wanted to do was go on a blind date. Imagine his surprise when he finds the woman he treated in the ER, sitting next to him.

Sparks fly and so do complications. Mari doesn’t want the feelings of love she’s developed for Noah and his daughter, Aimee. And while Noah is learning to balance being a newly single dad he must also convince Mari, the woman he’s looking to marry, life without him and his daughter, is no life at all.

Jasmine Aherne’s Uprooted is a Sweet Romance with all the elements that make a reader go back for more. Her portrayal of a thirteen year old girl is right on with all the rudiments of the teenage attitude. Mari and Noah make a strong connection from the moment they meet and their attraction only builds with each page turned. The struggles and insecurities of a single dad and a woman dating that man make a powerful read for all to enjoy. If you’re looking for a unique sweet story with heart, Uprooted will keep you planted for hours. 
Warning: M/F romance, and you will develop strong emotional pull toward characters.

Congratulation Jasmine on Four Blue Roses!
