Maybe Matt's Miracle by Tammy Falkner

Reed Brothers #4
What he needed was a miracle… 
     Matthew Reed has seen his share of problems. But he’s a Reed and Reeds can overcome anything. Matt is content working in his family’s tattoo parlor with his brothers surrounding him. The only thing he’s lacking is the ability to have a family of his own. Then his battle with cancer leads him to meet a woman who just might need him as much as he needs her. 
She didn’t need anything... 
     Skylar Morgan is happy. She has a boyfriend. Sure, he doesn’t make her heart pound faster and he really doesn’t support her when she needs it. But she doesn’t need much. Does she? She’s happy to be self-sufficient and she’s happy that she doesn’t have a tremendous amount of responsibility. She’s educated, has a great job, and she has enough money for a lifetime. But what she lacks, she doesn’t even realize until she meets him. And them. The ones who change her life forever.

This book was a little different than the other ones. Matt being the second oldest, but since he faced death due to cancer, he is quicker to be looking for love and marriage than his other brothers.

Skyler never knew her half sister. Never knew her sister's children. But since their father asked her to take the kids in, she has to learn to be a mom quickly. This is how she meets Matt. Matt and Kendra were in the same chemical trials for their cancer, but it didn't work for her, and now she is dying.

I'm not really sure how to review this book. It is slightly more light-hearted than the last book, but at the same time it's not because of the grief the characters face. But the romance is a little fluffier. Since I have to guess his age biased on the other characters, I'd have to say that Matt is around 32-35, which is probably why he's so interested in settling down. But Sky is worried that no man would want to be with her raising three kids that aren't hers.

I did like this book, it was cute and made me smile in parts. Matt is a more romantic character than the rest of the Reed brothers, so this book had less of that young love with hot passion. I really enjoyed this book. Now I have to wait for Paul's book.


  1. You must be really enjoying Tammy Falkner to have read so many of her books at once.


    1. She is one of my new favorite contemporary romance authors, so yes. :) There are still two more that aren't out yet for me to read.
