She has dreams of going back to school and becoming a teacher after she gets him established in his University education. Her dream of an education has been one of the things that have kept her working so hard for her son. She is given the chance for free rent in exchange for evening babysitting, which means she can save more money for her son's education. The free cottage is also close to the University, for her son. The man she makes this deal for free rent is Lincoln Stewart Linc and his cute preschool daughter Jenny. Linc has his own baggage and ideas on childcare as a single father that add interest to his character in his commitment to his daughter.
Evan did not plan to fall in love with both Linc and Jenny, who throw her dreams to the back burner again if she continues the relationship with Linc and his daughter. One of the things I liked about Evan was she was not willing to continue the relationship if she felt she could not be the kind of mother that Jenny needed; the author wrote of the emotional commitment and responsibilities of a parent in a way that brought out the strong moral character of Evan.
More family values need to be expressed in good fiction and this one does it perfectly. A roller coaster of emotions sends her for a tailspin, as she fights for her dreams and her unexpected love for Linc and his daughter. EC Sheedy has written a perfect ending to solve Evan and Linc's troubled courtship and you should read this wonderful story to find out all about these two.

Linc Stuart is an abrasive, temperamental, rich, stubborn and very handsome man. The two of them are like opposite polar fields. They immediately have different opions on Linc's spoiled daughter Jenny and how best to care for her. The two main characters are very much set in thier ways, but Linc is the first to break.
This was a sweet, easy reading romance novel. I have always enjoyed E C Sheedy's work. The only negative would be is that I felt it got to drawn out with of character Evan. She still seemed immature for a man like Linc in many ways. But I did enjoy the book very much. Dec 07, Jo rated it it was amazing Shelves: topages. I really enjoyed Dreams Don't Wait because I think that life without our Dreams would be pretty dull.
I enjoyed the story because the characters kept family values at the top of their priorities, where they should be. I would like to read other stories by this author. Apr 24, Pinky rated it it was amazing.
Sweet read! I loved this sweet romance. The chemistry between Linc and Evan was undeniable! Linc, a rich architect and Evan a single mom with a son about to start college. She had been alone all of her life, and she has a hard time trusting anyone. Linc hires Evan to watch his daughter occasionally in exchange for a cabin rent free. Love sparks and Evan tries to run. I highly recommend this book. You will enjoy it. Sep 21, Twist rated it really liked it Shelves: pages , aln-d.
Ok, so I only picked this book to read because of a challenge where I had to find some kind of punctuation in the title. Do you know how hard that is to find??? LOL, but I ended up really enjoying it. Evan is a single mother to Cal and Linc is a single father to Jenny. This is about Linc figuring out he can love, and Evan figuring out that she can have her dreams and a family too.
I do recommend this book. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. The first is to make peace with letting go of this perfection. This is hard. The second is to understand that the project will always evolve. Keep that in mind. You can come back a month later after you've collected some performance metrics and make stronger moves. I do this all the time. One tip that has helped me countless times is asking myself if each part of the three elements above meets or has access to pass the D.
If the answer is no at any stage, I know more planning is required. They come and go. But if you want them to chase you, you need to give them a reason.
