Official Blurb:

River Ransome wasn’t expecting his life to change when he took this bartending gig. Then he met Jasmine Weaver....
As the oldest son of one of the most successful rock stars in the world, River lives a charmed life. Surfing, hanging with his friends, and meeting pretty girls—River’s life is one big party. But lately he’s been wondering when the party stopped feeling fun.
Jasmine Weaver is a girl with a plan. Work hard, go to school, help her family, make her grandfather proud. And, above all else, keep her wild-child party days locked firmly in the past. But when she walks in on her perfectly respectable (and painfully boring) boyfriend banging his secretary, she wonders whether her carefully planned out life is all it’s cracked up to be.
And maybe the hot guy who tends bar at her uncle’s pub is just the thing to help her let go.
Jas is just looking for a night of fun. Fun is River’s specialty. It should be perfect—easy, no strings, no pressure. Then they can go back to their normal lives.
Until a few months later, when Jas takes a pregnancy test. And they both realize that nothing will ever be normal again.

My Thoughts:

Rachel Schurig hits another Ransom book out of the park! River and Jasmine’s story was just utterly lovely!
After seeing River in the periphery of the past three books in the series, it wouldn’t be a stretch to say that he was a bit of a wild playboy. Up for fun and doesn’t take life too seriously. However, whilst reading his story, this couldn’t be further from the ‘real’ River. He has so many layers and is such an interesting character that I am gutted this book has come to an end.
I’m not a massive fan of the main storyline that was in this book. Not just for this book but generally when I’m reading. I’d rather a life without that element (and have chosen that for myself!); however, it worked for River and Jasmine’s story. It made it different from the three previous stories we have had so far of the Ransom children. It fitted the character’s journeys that they were on, I think without it, the story wouldn’t have flowed so well, and they wouldn’t have ended up where they did. It forced River to reevaluate his life, and I really liked where his ideas ended up and what he finally achieved.
I love that we get to see all of the family in some sort of capacity throughout these books. It is hard to get my head around Daltrey, Daisy and all of that generation as grown-up parents. It is such a contrast from their own books. However, reading a new one of this series is like coming home and catching up with family and old friends.
Overall, another fantastic book and a wonderful addition to the series. I can’t wait to see who we get next. There are so many to choose from; especially now the ‘Littles’ are growing up too!
