When Geo signs up for Family Camp, he envisions nature hikes, s’mores, and a chance to win over his recalcitrant new foster kids, Jayden and Lucy. He’s tried to become a dad for so long, and he hopes the three of them can be the family he’s always wanted. What he doesn’t anticipate is the prickly and gorgeous camp counselor who constantly comes to his rescue.

Travis spends a week every year at Camp Evermore, the camp his adoptive parents own. As a pro baseball player, his presence guarantees a full campground and excited campers. He has one rule: never, ever mess around with anyone at camp. His profession demands he stay in the closet. But one sweet and funny new dad is about to test all his resolve.

Sparks fly for Geo and Travis, and not because of the nightly campfire. Having been a foster kid himself, Travis is drawn to Geo’s sincerity and big heart and to his kids. The four of them just fit. But will this be a summer romance? Or can they find a way to be a family long after Family Camp is over?

This was so very adult summer camp in all of the fabulous, sweet, new romance kind of ways. With s’mores!

At 32, Geo has decided to get his life in order. He’s fostering two kids, 12 and 5. It’s been a month, but he’s hoping to adopt them as his own. And he’s trying soooooo hard to be the best dad he can. So, why not spend a week together at a family summer camp?

Travis is a MLB player for the Padres. He’s one of the 8 adopted foster kids of the Mayhew family and spends a week a year at their family camp. It’s a great time to get in touch with his family again and rest a bit during the season. But this year, he’s unable to take his eyes off the new dad with his kids.

This was a very fun, cute, light read with all the feels of a new romance. It was fluffy and funny. There were fun family bonding and teaching moments. It was full of campfires and stargazing. Very low angst. High on feels.

This book is the perfect fit for a nice, relaxing sweet story with a bit of steam. Totally recommended.

Reading has become such a huge part of my life as an adult. I love the escape, but I also try to take something from each story for myself. I am a lover of words. I love dialogue. I love a slow burn and a happy ever after.
