Finding Glory (Home to Glory #3) by Sara Arden

Once upon a time, he was just a hopeless cause from the wrong side of Glory, Kansas. And he'll be damned if he'll let anyone drag him back down after finally clawing his way out. 

Everyone knows that Gina Townsend is a saint, always taking care of everyone around her. And now she's trying to be a mother to her six-year-old niece, Amanda Jane. But the girl's biological father isn't helping matters. The scruffy, gangly boy Gina remembers has returned to Glory a sexy, successful man, but Reed Hollingsworth is the only thing standing between her and losing Amanda Jane to foster care. 

Betrayed that neither Townsend sister bothered to tell him he was a father until he had money, Reed's still not about to shirk his responsibilities. So when he demands Gina move in with him as part of Amanda Jane's custody agreement, he tries not to notice pretty much everything about her—especially the way his solemn-faced daughter laughs when they play together. 

Raising a child together, Reed and Gina learn that some dreams come and go, but some are a spark that burns eternal…

My review:
Sweet small town romance.  Two flawed individuals overcoming the past in different ways come together for the sake of a child.  He has self-esteem issues that come with being a recovering addict no matter how successful you become you are still a recovering addict. She has lost her mother and her sister. She left the Army, her way out, to raise the child he made with her sister.  To say she has trust issues would be an understatement.  With the help of some wonderful secondary characters can these three learn to trust, love and become a family.
The story is sweet, a bit predictable but worth the read.  Complimentary copy provided by author/publisher for an honest review.
