Wondering ‘What should I read next?’ Surviving Emma by Jen Atkinson.
Sometimes life doesn’t go as planned. Sometimes it’s a complete disaster. A beautiful, unpredictable, life-changing disaster.
Life had chosen to pummel Emma Sunday. She didn’t have a choice in her non-existent mother or her cruel drunk of a father. She didn’t mean to get pregnant at seventeen. She didn’t plan on being a single mom. It all just happened.
Seven years later, life is still beating Emma. Life can abuse her all it wants though, the only thing Emma cares about is her Dakota. Her girl is brilliant and kind. She deserves the life that Emma couldn’t have. Dakota will be happy and successful—Emma will make sure.
But Emma never planned on Dakota’s happy and successful life including nosy Aiden Carter, who despises Emma but adores Dakota. The new Deputy has done everything in his power to let Emma know he doesn't like her… until he unexpectedly begins to like her.
Carter tries to help Emma believe in herself and live for not only Dakota but for herself. But it’s hard for Emma to believe in anything but Dakota. And it’s impossible for her to trust her plagued life when her heart starts falling for Carter. She’s never had anything go her way—so why would this be any different?
