Title: I’m Yours
Author: Jennifer Van Wyk
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Single Dad Romance
I left Lakeside, Montana heartbroken and lost with no desire to ever return.
But life had other plans.
Moving back wasn’t what I wanted to do, but I’d do anything for my daughter Emmy. Including put myself right in the path of Sadie Jones.
My daughter’s new dance teacher.
The reason my heart was never fully opened to anyone else was because it’s always belonged to her.
When I watched Reed Sanders drive away from Lakeside, I knew my heart would never recover.
He was meant for more than what this town could offer him.
Than what I could offer him.
I tried to warn him to stay away from me but he refused to listen.
If only he would have, maybe then I wouldn’t feel so broken.
The heart is mysterious. It can be closed off and open at the same time.
Unfortunately, sometimes it takes danger lurking around the corner to make it choose a side.
All I can hope is that one day I can finally hear the words… I’m Yours.

NICUnurse’s Review of I’m Yours by Jennifer Van Wyk
I stumbled across Jennifer Van Wyk’s books with her 2nd release (I think) and something about her writing really connected with me, and since then, she’s become one of those authors that I eagerly anticipate each next book. So, suffice it to say that I was really excited for I’m Yours. It’s a contemporary, single dad, small-town romance. Each time I read one of her small-town romances, it makes me want to move somewhere just like the town the book is set in. And since I’ve always loved Montana’s natural, rugged beauty, I’ve just added that to my never-ending Zillow obsession!
Reed and Sadie were fabulous characters. Both of them are good people from very different places. Not in the geographical sense, as they grew up in that same small town, but in the sense of socioeconomic status. He’s more upper-middle-class and she definitely grew up poor. I loved that Reed never saw the differences and just saw her. And when he returned home, he really did try not to judge the choices Sadie had to make in order to make something of her life. It’s really hard not to judge, and I think the author did a great job showing our natural tendencies as we war with them when it comes to dealing with differences in our relationships with other people. Not only did she make me thoroughly fall in love with the main characters and the small town, but she also made me fall in love with all the protagonists…and really loathe the bad guys.
NICUnurse’s Rating: I’ve read all of Jennifer Van Wyk’s books except her first one, From the Ground Up. Not because I don’t want to or because I think it will be awful. But I only have so much time in each day, and I just haven’t gotten to it…yet. It’s on my Kindle, I swear! I’ve really enjoyed each of her books that I’ve read to date, but I’m Yours has topped my favorite Jennifer Van Wyk books list now! And for so many reasons. A single dad struggling with the hand that life has dealt him and coming to terms with his past. A girl from the wrong side of town who’s done what she had to do in order to make her dream come true, even if she lost her way for a short while. I don’t know exactly what it was that my soul connected with in this book but it really, really connected with it. Someone once told me that a 5-star read should be one that sticks with you long after you finish the book. And that’s exactly what I’m Yours did with me. It’s definitely going to go on my list of books that I’ll re-read many times in my life going forward.
I give I’m Yours by Jennifer Van Wyk 5 out of 5 propellers! I think I’d give it more if I could!
My family of weirdos

From the Ground Up is Jennifer’s first published novel, with the hopes of many more to come. Jennifer makes her home in rural Iowa with her high school sweetheart, three beautiful and amazing kids, one crazy Jack Russell terrier. This is where her love for all things reading, baking, and cooking happen. Jennifer’s family enjoys camping, boating, and spending time outside as much as possible. When she’s not writing or editing/proofreading manuscripts for the many talented authors she’s come to love, she’s sipping coffee or iced tea with her kindle in her lap or binging on Netflix.
