About Time (The Avenue #1)About Time by B. Cranford
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 Cranky Stars

We’ve always at some point thought of what if. What if I had stayed with that person? What if I had gone right instead of left would I have had an accident? Well this is a story of just that. This is the story of Ashton and Andrew and their brief encounter that sparked a longing they never realized until now.

Ashton hears her biological clock ticking. She has left her boyfriend of 10 years behind and making a new life for herself with the support of her brothers. She decides that she doesn’t want to wait for a man and the perfect scenario to have a baby. She finds herself at the clinic and pouring through books of potential donors. She knows she can do this herself and she goes through with it yet she keeps having random dreams and flashbacks to a man she shared a week with. Her brothers’ best friend she hasn’t seen in 15 years.

Andrew feels his life is adrift. He has suffered a serious loss and home just isn’t home anymore. Home to him is his best friend Aaron and his little sister Ashton even though she doesn’t know that yet. He sets off to see if this woman is his one and discovers a lot has happened in 15 years. Standing before him is a strong confident woman about to tackle pregnancy and motherhood solo and he finds a small part of himself wanting to be a part of that.

I could relate to Ashton. We all feel like these timelines have to take place before we reach a certain age. I like that she was going to tackle motherhood alone and everyone better step back. This isn’t something we see often in books. I like that Andrew is a standup guy. He looked at her and knew she was worth it and this was worth it.

I loved the characters Aaron and Simon. They are couple goals!! Austin and Odette need to get it together!! This story will make you swoon and realize everyone else’s goals and timelines don’t have to be yours. Family can be unconventional yet beautiful. I can’t wait to read book two.
