    The Recovery was much better than the first two books but, I really struggled with Parker’s story because of the lack of information. The author never told us how old Kelly was. The man had three kids so, it’s easy to assume he was much older than Parker. Or, was he?!!! She never said how old his kids were. Well, I figured out Chloe was seven by a comment Parker made but, we never got Dylan and DeeDee’s ages. Hell, the author never told us how old Geffri or Parker was.

Well, I figured out Chloe was seven by a comment Parker made but, we never got Dylan and DeeDee’s ages. Hell, the author never told us how old Geffri or Parker was. The only ones whose ages were mentioned in this series was Blair and Leigh. I had to guess how old Geffri and Parker was from Blair talking about their trip to Vegas in her book. We don’t find out that Kelly is a widower until chapter six or that he’s a private pilot until chapter seven. It shouldn't take that long to find out basic character information. The author never mentions how Kelly's wife died. Was she killed or did she die of cancer or natural causes?!!! Inquiring minds want to know. It’s mind boggling how much information the author left out regarding Kelly and his family. He was Parker’s love interest so, there should’ve been way more background given on him. The author didn’t know how old she wanted Chole to be. At times, she spoke in complete sentences like a seven year old should and, at other times, she talked like she was a four year old. So, Chloe can pronounce disgusting with no problem but, she can’t pronounce embarrassed?!!! Come on man! These kind of contradictions make no sense. Then, the book was written completely from Parker’s POV. The author finally decided to give Kelly a voice in the epilogue but, by that point, I didn’t need to hear from him. And, I have to say, I was extremely annoyed that she knocked Parker up. She was trying to go pro and had just started making a name for herself on the golf circuit so, why give her a baby?!!! Kelly already had three kids so, they didn’t need another one that soon. Other than her being too exhausted to play past her second or third trimester, Parker's career is never mentioned again. So, is she even still playing golf or nah?!!! Honestly, the only highlight of The Recovery for me was the nod to Sugar Valley and Honey Branch. I was just so frustrated with this book. It read like it was written by a novice author which, is why I question if it was actually written by Nicole Falls. Generally her books have a handful of grammatical errors but, all of the books in this series were riddled with them from start to finish. This series will definitely go down as my least favorite by this author.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I liked this whole series, but out of the three in the series, this was my least favorite. I loved the HEA and appreciate when there is no unnecessary angst, but I feel like a little more could have been given with this. A little more could be played up about her feeling uneasy jumping into a ready-made family....then her getting pregnant at the end...when her career was picking up and their relationship was new?! It was very similar to the ending of book 2. I dunno...I certainly didn't hate it, I liked this whole series, but out of the three in the series, this was my least favorite.

I did love, however, the Sugar Valley and BLKLV references (shoutout to CCJ). Also, i loved how the epilog if each book was from the male pov!

    I’ve been waiting for Parker’s story for a while. She is easily the most elusive member of the trio of her, Geffri, and Blair. Between The Changeup and The Restart, it’s very clear that she has some major turmoil and the build-up of anticipation was real. As the third book in the New Beginnings series, The Recovery continues its pattern of following a woman athlete’s career and personal life.

She is easily the most elusive member of the trio of her, Geffri, and Blair. Between The Changeup and The Restart, it’s very clear that she has some major turmoil and the build-up of anticipation was real. As the third book in the New Beginnings series, The Recovery continues its pattern of following a woman athlete’s career and personal life. For her part, Parker is a former track star turned golf novice looking to establish herself as a great. Her day job, however, is being nanny to three kids under 7 while fighting off an attraction to their widower father, Kelly. So while she spends her days staving off tantrums and keeping her bedroom eyes in check, Parker devotes nearly all the rest of her time to honing her skills as an up-and-coming golfer on a tour circuit. I readily fell into Parker’s story because she’s so likable. She’s a calmer balance to Blair and Geffri’s personalities, but isn’t quite mousy nor a pushover. She can get hype like them, but between catering to little kids all day and spending her time on the green, she comes across as more serene. More than that, though, she doesn’t actively have a ton of excitement happening around her, so her issues seem a bit more acute. Kelly is also an all-around good guy, so despite some obvious losses he’s endured, I really wanted to see him win. He’s a good foil to Parker’s tendency to pull back from whatever they have going on, because he’s assertive without being a creep. It’s not always clear that he and Parker can jump from employer to lover without judgement and fallout from those around them, or if it would even be worth the fight. But it’s sure worth the read seeing them figure it out. Sports in general aren’t my interest, but I continue to appreciate Falls’ ability to let sports take a central role in a book without overpowering the story and causing folks like me to lose interest. That was particularly important here, because golf is probably last on the list of sports I care about. I did, in particular, like how Falls acknowledged the lack of representation among the field, especially among Black women. And for those who are golf fans, the attention to golf course locations, tours, training and the like will readily be a part of the story. A romance wouldn’t be right without a shade of drama, though. There were more than a few occasions where I held baited breath to see if things would implode for Parker. There was just enough tension to make sure you never quite knew how things would work out, but this wasn’t a nerve-wracking, chair-throwing read, thankfully. I am a bit sad to see this series draw to an end for this group of friends. But Parker’s story was a great way to round it out. With the introduction of a few characters, I’m cautiously optimistic that Falls will keep these three around as secondary characters in new books. But this is not at all a bad way to bring the New Beginnings series to a close.

Parker’s relationship with the children is beautiful, the love is very much reciprocal. Respectfully, them her babies now 🥰. Parker’s best friends are back and they bring all the jokes. They call Kelly Mr. Sheffield, ‘The Nanny’ references are too good 😂. The golf references applied to Parker’s life are perfecto! It’s important to have representation of Black women in golf 🏌🏽‍♀️ This is a great series but this one is by far my favourite and an excellent way to wrap up the series. I cued the applause after the epilogue 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

    Mr. Sheffield and Fran Fine for the win! I loved this series and each book got better, but this one right here was 🔥!!! Besides the fact that I laughed out loud numerous times, I love a book with precocious kids and this book was chalk full. I love how Parker and Kelly both took risks with each other to love again. Shout out for the Narnia inclusion! Another favorite book of mine.

I love how solid all of the men are. I would have love to be able to read this book from Kelly’s point of view. I’m sure he went through a lot to be able to release his first wife just to be able to love Parker. So very glad that he was able to find love again.

    Good love story I have been waiting on the third and final book in this series and I was not disappointed. Parker came into the Steward household as a Nanny to the 3 children finding love with Kelly was an added bonus. It was good to catch up on Geffrie and Blair's lives also. From the earlier two stories it always seemed as if Parker had some issues personally and professionlly that she was working through and it was good to get insight into those issues.

    Someone older but oh so new Sometimes unexpected, older love is what you need. The main character finally found her love and happiness after watching her friends get theirs in the previous books. The instant family worked out in the end. Sometimes someone older is just want you need to feel new and whole again.

    Butterflies This is a really sweet story. I loved how Kelly is so upfront about his intentions. I love how he is so ready to pour into Parker. It was nice to catch up with the characters from this series. Their camaraderie is so refreshing. I was pleasantly surprised to see Sugar Valley from Christina C. Jones’ series make a cameo.

    Good conclusion to the series This was a good conclusion to this series. While I definitely enjoyed Parker's journey, this story seemed slow moving. It took me a long time to finish, it seemed. Kelly and this babies were a great inevitability to Parker's happiness. Good conclusion to the series This was a good conclusion to this series.

    Sweet story! I enjoyed this story and liked the use of golf as the sport - out of the ordinary pick which was a nice change. I wouldn’t have minded a little more “conflict” or adversity for the couple on their way to HEA. Love the Sugar Valley cameo!

    Fun read The book was a easy and enjoyable read. I loved the way Parker & Kelly's story came together beautifully. Never having read a romance centered around golf before made this book a little different but nonetheless still interesting. Fun read The book was a easy and enjoyable read.
