(A standalone)

Publication Date: December 29, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Second Chance at Love/Single Parents/Vacation Romance

Author: Nikki Ash

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars



This kind of book makes it easy to fall in love with love, second chances, and romance in general.

Hudson and Sawyer are two single parents just living their lives, making their children happy, but without a love connection to anyone else. Long days and longer nights make for a lonely life, but when these two meet one another while on vacation, it’s like the stars aline and for the first time in a very long time that loneliness takes a back seat and they find a connection with each other.

While it’s easy to melt into the groove of being together while there are no responsibilities, that time is short and real life is coming in fast. They both have jobs, houses, their children to think about as the week comes closer to ending, so while the fantasy is nice, there is no way their time outside vacation can be anything but a beautiful memory.

Hudson’s loneliness is so palpitale and Nikki really gave him so much depth, both as a dad, and as a husband that was still living with survivor’s guilt. Sawyer is the first woman to draw him out of that lonely status, and she loves his kids as much as he does, which is just an added bonus.

Speaking of the children, both Hudson’s and Sawyers are truly adorable, especially the sweet girls who become best friends. There is something so endearing about innocent youth and how easily they give their love. If only adults could live their lives with such ease and without all the complications.

What Love Looks Like is the perfect novella to lose yourself in with the right amount of sweet, angst, and spice.



Since I lost my wife, my life has consisted of being a single dad to two crazy kids
and playing professional football, leaving me with no room for anything or anyone else.

Until the moment I met Sawyer.
Something about her feels right, and I know it’s more than just chemistry.
She’s a game changer. My second chance at love.

I want all of her days, her nights, and everything in between.
But our time together is limited, and come Saturday, she’s going to leave, taking my heart right along with her.


I wasn’t looking for love, but that didn’t stop it from finding me.
All it took was six days to fall head over heels for a complete stranger and his adorable children.

Nothing has ever felt so right.
But as a single mom, it’s not just about what I want.
We live over a thousand miles apart, and I know all too well that long-distance love always ends in heartache.

Hudson’s everything I’ve ever wanted in a man, and I know it would be easy to create a life with him and our kids. Which is why it’s going to be so hard to say goodbye.
