#Review: Yours and Mine by Christine Duval | #Giveaway @christineduval1 @XpressoTours

Yours And Mine 

Christine Duval

(Freshman Forty #2)

Publication date: February 10th 2017 

Genres: Contemporary, New Adult

The highly anticipated sequel to Positively Mine….
Picking up from the dramatic ending of Positively Mine, Yours and Mine continues the Freshman Forty series as we meet Danny Santoro, Laurel’s baby’s father, for the first time.
It’s been almost a year since he last saw her, that sultry morning she walked off the beach before dawn had even cracked the August sky. It seemed from her silence, she was out of his life forever.
But Laurel’s timing couldn’t be worse to tell him he’s a father. The last year hasn’t been easy. Danny’s own father was arrested for a DUI, his mother moved out, and Danny started sleeping with his brother’s old high school, drug-abusing girlfriend.
After Laurel shocks him with the news, she attempts to relinquish Danny of any parental responsibility leading to a heated custody battle. In an unorthodox arrangement, an eccentric judge orders Danny and Laurel to spend alternating weekends with each other for the upcoming school year.
Told from Danny’s point of view, Yours and Mine explores the second chapter of a romance that never got off the ground, the challenges of young parenting, and the hope of rekindled love.

DISCLAIMER: I received a copy of this book as part of this blog tour.

I have not read the first book, I will say that you should as this book picks up where that one left off. But that aside, I liked getting into this story. This is a new author for me and I found her writing to be very enveloping. Like it just wrapped me up and made me stay until I was finished.

I am all about the heart wrenching stories. I definitely recommend reading the first book, which I plan on doing, like, yesterday. It's on my TBR and I am determined to read it to give me a chance to read this book again, possibly in a new light.
