Book Review: Ask Me for Tomorrow by Elise K. Ackers

The Deal: Dean Foster is finally getting back on his feet after the death of his beloved wife three years earlier, and finally going from a phase of merely going to the motions for the sake of his children to actually moving on.

He's ready to let go of the past and start a new. And part of it means expanding his business - an auto repair shop - and for that he needs someone to handle the office stuff so he can spend more time doing actual mechanical work and taking care of his two children.

Alice Jaye is struggling to make ends met for her and her son, so she applies for the job with Dean, and gets it. She is very private though, and doesn't like when people get in her business, specially her old childhood acquaintance  Dean.

But as her son starts coming around to the garage and following Dean around, and the two of them start hanging out with Dean's family and friends, she can't resist the pull she feels toward Dean, even if her life is too complicated right now. 

My Thoughts: Ask Me For Tomorrow was a very fun novella, and later I found out is part of a series of novellas about Dean, his brother and their best friend Cal; and that Dean's was the last.

Still, I didn't feel like I was out of the loop or anything regarding this story, but I did feel the sense of community  around the Fosters and their friends, and that was quite lovely.

As for the romance itself, well, I thought it needed a little more time to develop, since Dean and Alice don't interact that much with each other, is always Dean interacting with Ben (Alice's son) or all of them with their friends, but one on one time is rare.

All in all, it was a fun, easy read, and it made me want to go back and read the previous two titles Ask Me for More and Ask Me to Stay
