I like a lot about this story like the plot was good.but was some things I didn’t really like as when Travis didn’t try to get close to Belle and just referred to her as the kid. Penny and Belle were a package deal after all even as friends. I loved how Penny took off with Belle when she was a couple days old to raise Belle herself. I also love the mother Penny is. I liked how this wasn’t an insta love type story especially after belle’s biological dad and he lead Penny on when all the while he was married and gave her money to keep they pregnancy hidden so she would want to be more careful. Travis had a totally different lifestyle than Penny also. I would have loved to see more Belle moments who doesn’t love a baby/ toddler in a story. I liked the characters and I liked the ins and outs of this story a lot and I recommend.
