I've Got You, Babe by Lynnette Austin

Where do you go when you're at the end of your rope?

Former Marine Tucker Wylder wants nothing more than to work with his brothers in their vintage car restoration business and be left alone with his nightmares and regrets. The last thing he needs is to take on someone else's troubles...

Then Elisa Danvers and her young daughter arrive in Misty Bottoms, Georgia. Elisa has reached the end of the line—flat broke, engine trouble, sick in body and spirit. Tucker steps up to the rescue and finds himself reluctantly taking care of a feisty preschooler and her independent mother, who doesn't seem to want his help. And Tucker isn't sure he's ready for the way precocious little Daisy and headstrong, beautiful Elisa herself capture first his bachelor household and finally his carefully guarded heart...

Mary Jo☆☆☆☆
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Tucker's initial response to Elisa and Daisy's situation is one of caring yet wariness. His time in military left him with deep scars – more than the ones on his skin – and he's afraid. He doesn't want anyone to know about his nightmares, of how he doesn't sleep. Since he works with his brothers, there is no way he can hide everything from them.

Elisa is also a person that doesn't like her weaknesses known. She's independent – she has to be as a single mom. Fainting in front of Tucker Wilder is not her best moment. Finding out that she needs to stay in town (which she can't afford) is something that she doesn't need now. She needs to get to her mother's place so that she will have a roof over her head for her and her daughter.

There's something about Elisa that calls to Tucker. He can't let her leave town, nor can he let her stay in a hotel room until the doctor pronounces her well. He wants to take care of her, which is something that he's never wanted to do with anyone else.

Elisa is wary of Tucker's motives, yet she senses his good heart. Taking a chance for both her and Daisy, she agrees to stay with him until she's back on her feet healthwise. What she didn't plan on was how much her daughter comes to love her "Tut." If Daisy loves Tucker, he can't be all bad, right?

This is a book that I couldn't put down and I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

I want to start this review by saying that I did not read book one in the series, but never felt that I was missing anything.

Tucker and his brothers run a very successful business restoring cars and bikes. They absolutely love what they do and despite the business side of things, they love working with each other. When Tucker is at work, he meets a woman who literally falls at his feet.

Elisa has not had it easy. She has absentee parents and married someone who, it turned out, wasn't her knight in shining armor. However, she has the most adorable daughter. And despite all of the hardships, Elisa still wants to find a good life for herself and her daughter.

Misty Bottoms is a community of people who genuinely care about each other. You have people who will go out on a limb to help those who are new. It was a sweet story about finding your place in life, letting go of guilt, and simply being happy.

The relationship between Tucker and Elisa was decent, however, with Elisa's secret it seemed like it was a huge deal. Then the big reveal was anticlimactic. My favorite character was Daisy. She was feisty, adorable, and helped move the story along.

Overall, this was a cute story, but lacked chemistry among the main characters.

The luxury of staying home when the weather turns nasty, of working in PJs and bare feet, and the fact that daydreaming is not only permissible but encouraged, are a few of the reasons middle school teacher Lynnette Austin gave up the classroom to write full-time. Lynnette grew up in Pennsylvania’s Alleghany Mountains, moved to Upstate New York, then to the Rockies in Wyoming. Presently she and her husband divide their time between Southwest Florida’s beaches and Georgia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. A finalist in RWA’s Golden Heart Contest, PASIC’s Book of Your Heart Contest, and Georgia Romance Writers’ Maggie Contest, she’s published five books as Lynnette Hallberg. She’s currently writing as Lynnette Austin. Having grown up in a small town, that’s where her heart takes her—to those quirky small towns where everybody knows everybody... and all their business, for better or worse.
