Tough, dry-witted, and intelligent, Ming has worked her whole life to be a successful lawyer, great friend, and dutiful daughter. Her focus has been on her career, but now she's thirty-five, and the last of her friends to be single. Ming knows what she needs... A man who communicates, who won't be intimidated by her position, a partner. She knows this, but all she wants is him...
After working side by side with his brother, Brock for years, Brady has followed his dream and become a police officer. Protecting and serving comes naturally to him, it's what he was born to do, which is why he doesn't know what to do with a woman who doesn't need his strength and protection.
For 7 Months, Ming has accepted what Brady had to offer, secret nights of passion with no hope of a relationship,. But feelings have developed, and now she wants more. When Brady doesn't want things to change, Ming has to decide if being with the man she loves is worth sacrificing everything she wants.
I had the opportunity to listen to the audiobook of 7 Months by Bethany Lopez, the 7th book in the Time for Love series. All the stories can be read as standalones, as they are each about different interconnected couples. I have jumped around the series myself and have enjoyed each one I have read and/or listened too. Manda Lee, the narrator did an amazing job brining this story to life.
Ming has wanted Brady O’Malley for a long time. When she has the opportunity to have him, she jumps at it, even if he only wants a casual, no strings affair. Brady has never been into relationships and makes no promises. He is drawn to Ming but wants to keep things light between them. But after seven months, Ming wants more. When Brady tells her he does not, but does not want to give her up, she decides to walk away.
What I loved about this book was the opportunity to see Brady and Ming coming to realize what they share and the decisions they make about their future. Their journey was not an easy one, but they never gave up on themselves or each other. Brady grew throughout the story. He was quiet and withdrawn but loved his family fiercely. Ming was strong, independent and determined. They were opposites that complemented each other in every way. 7 Months by Bethany Lopez was a delightful quick read/listen to get lost in.
