The Godparent Trap|Review

The Godparent Trap – Published 2022

“Colby’s living her best life: as a popular food blogger, she gets to fulfill her dreams of exploring the globe. But her world comes crashing down when a tragic accident leaves her co-guardian of her best friend’s two adorable children. Not only does she need to put down roots—fast—but she’ll be sharing custody with the one man she can’t stand sharing a continent with, let alone a house.  

Accountant-extraordinaire Rip values rules and plans. But when he loses his sister and his best friend and becomes an insta-guardian all in one night, Rip sees his organized life imploding. What he really doesn’t need is his sister’s irresponsible, flighty—albeit kind and gorgeous—best friend making it worse.

Rip doesn’t trust Colby to take their new responsibilities seriously, while Colby can’t believe Rip thinks children will thrive under his rigid control. Yet soon Rip and Colby discover they need each other more than they hate each other. Could it be possible that following their hearts is just what their new little family needs?” – Goodreads


Thank you to ReadForeverPub for the ARC of this book!

This book is silly and sweet, despite its devastating beginning. Two people who have gone on one disastrous date in the past, having been set up by their married best friends/siblings, have now inherited two children.

While each character is definitely in the thick of their grief, they also are learning their new normal together, which is messy and complicated.

I enjoyed this book; it reminded me a lot of Life as We Know it, which is a very similar premise to this but in movie form.

TW: loss of loved ones/parents, car accident
