Life has been on a downward spiral for Lauryn Anderson and she finally hits rock bottom. A tornado hits and leaves her homeless, broke and alone. When a gorgeous stranger offers her a job with room and board, Lauryn is skeptical at first. Bad idea or not, this was the only option she had.

Steve Mitchell needed a babysitter for his daughter and Lauryn needed a place to stay. Bringing her home with him just seemed right. Something about Lauryn spoke volumes to Steve and not just his libido. As fragile and frightened as she was, Steve had gained Lauryn’s trust as the days passed. Hopefully, their budding relationship wouldn’t be destroyed, once Steve divulged some omitted information about his life.

Not only is there chemistry between Lauryn and Steve, but also between Steve’s daughter and Lauryn. Effortlessly, the three of them morphed into a comfortable family life that made me jealous. I was touched by the way Steve’s family accepted Lauryn with open arms and how they brought her out of her shell. They didn’t make snap judgments because Lauryn was down on her luck and they saw the genuine person she was. Considering the circumstances that brought Lauryn into Steve’s life, I wouldn’t have blamed them if they had jumped to the wrong conclusions. Steve had his reasons for not sharing every little detail with Lauryn, so I couldn’t be upset at him. He made up for his mistake in ways that left me breathless. A Matter Of Honesty is an impressive, happily ever after story that reminded me of the simple pleasures of life and love. Readers will not want to miss out on this one.
