  • Great cast of characters!

    I had such a good time with this book. It is no secret that I am a huge fan of Jill Shalvis’s writing so I was eager to dive into this first book in a new series. I went into the book with fairly high expectations and this story lived up to every one of them. I got the heartwarming romance that I had hoped for along with a wonderful cast of characters that came alive on the page. This book opens with a pretty intense scene. Jane and Levi are on a gondola during a storm when things go wrong and the one in front of theirs falls to the ground. Things don’t look good for the pair and Levi places a call to his mother hoping to talk to her one last time but instead ends up telling her that Jane is his girlfriend just to make her happy. What a great way to start a story! These two bonded right away because of the situation that they survived and I felt like they seemed perfect for each other from the start. I fell in love with Jane and Levi right away. They both had some issues to deal with and I enjoyed watching each of them work through everything. They had fantastic chemistry together and the only real obstacle to a relationship was their own fear. Add a little fake dating into the mix and I knew that I would get the happily ever after that I craved. The secondary characters were equally wonderful. Jane’s friend Charlotte has been her rock but she had her own issues to deal with. Levi’s family was just a lot of fun. They were not perfect but you could tell that they cared for each other and only wanted the best for Levi. I really appreciated the fact that we were treated to a secondary romance and I loved being able to see both couples find happiness together. I would highly recommend this book to others. I found this to be a wonderfully written story featuring characters that were easy to fall for. I cannot wait to read more of this amazing author’s work. I received a digital review copy of this book from William Morrow Paperbacks.

  • Heartwarming!

    A heartwarming story about finding exactly what you need in the most unexpected of places and ways. Jane and Levi have amazing chemistry but the story is not easy as they both have to get past their fears. It's sweet and heartwarming and makes me want to visit this town.

  • Loved the sweet, sexy nerd Levi!

    When Levi Cutler and Jane Parks are stranded on a gondola ski lift together as a huge storm hits in Lake Tahoe they are doing ok until the gondola in front of them falls down off the track. When theirs keeps getting knocked around by the wind, it causes a shelf to dislodge and hit Levi in the head. Fearing a concussion, Jane, an RN tries to keep Levi awake. When Levi calls his parents to hear their voices incase they don't make it, his mom hears Jane's voice in the background and is all excited that he is with a female. Knowing it would make his mom happy, Levi tells her that Jane is his girlfriend. Right after that the phone goes dead. Of course these two are rescued but now there is the problem that Levi's parents think that Jane is his girlfriend and want to meet her. Levi convinces Jane to be his pretend girlfriend and come to his parents 40th anniversary dinner. As Levi and Jane spend more time together, the sparks start to fly. Too bad Levi actually lives in San Francisco and Jane is a traveling nurse who never stays in one place very long. Levi and Jane will both have to look deep inside themselves to figure out what they both really want in life and this will require them both to stop running away from their pasts. After they do that they can both finally have their happy every after. I really loved this sweet, fake relationship romance story. Both Levi and Jane were wonderful characters. They're both strong individuals who were running from their pasts and once they confronted those demons they were able to find their true soul mate. I really enjoyed all the supporting characters too, especially Levi's niece, Peyton and Jane's friends Charlotte and Matteo. This book is a great start to this new series.

  • Full of emotions

    As a longtime fan of Jill Shalvis’ books, I can definitively say that The Family You Make is in the top three of my favorites in her catalog. From chapter one, I was charmed by Levi and Jane…and it was the most heart stopping beginning to a book that I’ve read in a long while. But amid the drama we’re more than a few laughs, and I knew then that this story, and this couple, was going to bring a whole lotta feels by the time the last page was turned. Every character in this book brought something different to the story…from humor to simple joy, to a bit of eye rolling (yes, but in a good way). Not only did the reader enjoy the journey of Levi and Jane, but we were also along for Charlotte and Mateo’s ride as well. I honestly don’t know which couple I loved more! The Family You Make was a story worth waiting for, me that you won’t want to put down once you start reading it. 2022 is starting off to be a great year for this romance reader!

  • Jane and Levi gave me all the feels.

    Oh wow. This story started off with a nail biter of an event. Once I started reading I couldn't stop. This story gave me all the feels. And there were two romances going on here interspersed with some funny antics from a loving but meddlesome family. This story showed so many forms of love and all of them were wonderful. I highly recommend The Family You Make if you want a really feel good story. *I voluntarily read an advance copy of this book*
