“I’ll take them!”

That’s what I tell the social worker when my pre-k student and his baby brother need an emergency foster placement. I’ll do anything to keep the brothers from being split up. But my apartment’s flooded and there’s only one house I can take them to on such short notice…his.

Knox Daniels, my older brother’s best friend, offers his new place without hesitation. He’s not moving back to our tiny town until next month—that’s when all our hotshot firefighters are returning for their one and only chance to rebuild our fathers’ fallen, iconic crew.

It doesn’t matter that I’ve been silently in love with Knox since we were kids.
It can’t matter that we pretend that reckless prom night kiss never happened.
It won’t matter that my feelings for him could destroy his lifelong friendship with my brother and threaten the certification of their hotshot crew.
Because I’ll be out of his house long before he gets back.

Except Knox just walked in…a month early.
And the icing on this awkward cake?
He’s gorgeous as always and I’m covered in baby puke.
He takes one look at the boys and tells me we can make this work—
We can temporarily fake a relationship to keep them from being separated by the system.

Suddenly, everything matters.

Reason to Believe was a story of love … love lost, love found, and unconditional love. ~ Kitty – Simply Love Books

I can always depend on Rebecca Yarros to bring me a story that has just the right amount of angst, laughs and romance. Reason to Believe, the third book in the Legacy series gave me exactly what I expected and then a little more.

Loving from afar is never a good or healthy way to live your life. You try to overcome this love but, nothing and no one seems to live up to the expectations of that one person or that one kiss. God knows that Harper and Knox have both tried their hardest to forget and move on. Now, with Liam and James, not only their hearts are on the line.

There is so much that happened in this story but the one thing that stood out to me was the love. The unrequited (so she thought) love Harper had for Knox. The love Knox had for his brothers and the one person that his best friend put on the “list”. The love that Bash had for his sister. And, the never ending, soul encompassing love that Harper and Knox had for Liam and James. There was also need. The need to give Liam and James a safe place. The need to live up to the towns expectations. The need to earn the Legacy patch and wear it with honor and pride. And, in the end, the need to prove to Harper that he wasn’t the hit-it-and-quit-it guy that everyone thought he was. All it took was a little carving on the wall.

Rebecca Yarros brought a part of her heart and love into this story. Not only was it about Knox and Harper but it was about foster care and what it does to those people that do take on this heavy burden and the children involved. But, is it a burden when you know that you are making someone feel safe, wanted and not alone? No, it’s not … it’s loving unconditionally knowing you are giving your heart only to possibly have it torn to shreds. They say that you should write what you know and Ms. Yarros is all to familiar with this subject. I fell in love with Harper and Knox but I also fell in love with Liam and James. Reason to Believe was written with Rebecca Yarros’ heart on her sleeve. It came through with the way she wrote Harper and Knox, with how she made you fall in love with two children who had nothing but hope for the future and with the characters that surrounded them. She gives you a happily-ever-after for all involved and then brings you to the next level with the epilogue that makes you cry. But, most of all she wrote a story that brings you hope for the future.

If you get a chance check out One October Inc. If this story shed any light on the trials and tribulations of fostering a child or children, donate. The children are our future and it’s up to us to make sure they know they are wanted and loved. For more inspiration, maybe a little throw back song by Whitney Houston call The Greatest Love? Yes, that song played over and over in my head while I read this story.

Reason to Believe will definitely be on my “Best of” list for 2022. It was a story of love … love lost, love found, and unconditional love.
