5 Star Review: Lullay by Freya Barker

Monday 22 October 2018

Another beautiful and enchanting story. I loved it, especially Matt!

OMG that story has left me with a good old dose of the warm fuzzies. There’s something about a man taking on the care and love of a fatherless child that just calls to my psyche.

I’ve been wondering when Matt would receive his own HEA. Having been a stalwart at The Skipper, the bar where all of the other captivating Portland ME stories have been based around, Matt always seemed a little left out, but all that changes when he drives across the country to rescue his sister from his family of religious zealots.

Driving anywhere at Christmas is not without its challenges, especially with the anticipated inclement weather, but trying to undertake a drive like that with a young child who has an ear infection would break the strongest of mothers. Tana (Montana) is just such a mother but thankfully for her, she repeatedly comes across a stranger (Matt) who is more than ready to help her and her daughter, Flynn, out.

The first meeting was unexpected, the second downright freaky as both Tana and Matt find their paths crossing again. When it happens for the third time you have to say fate has definitely played a part.

Tana and Flynn are a really sweet pair and Flynn is beyond adorable. Add Matt to the mix and my heart just about exploded with happiness. I was expecting the bond between Tana and Matt to add the backbone to this story but for me, Flynn and Matt’s relationship was what I found myself wanting more of.

As expected with this series, there are family and emotional problems abound and the main one this time seem to be surrounding Matt’s sister who I hope will get to tell her own story at a future point. Although Tana is not without her fair share of struggles where her father’s health is concerned.

This is a seriously good series and definitely one that I would recommend. I feel able to relate to the character’s ages more easily and also to their emotional struggles which perhaps is why I’m drawn to the series. I also loved the fact that Tana is older than Matt and yet she rocks her confidence levels and is more than happy to take on a younger man!

Whilst reflecting on existing characters from the Portland ME series, this book can definitely be read as a stand-alone without impacting on the other stories.
