Twenty-four-year-old Ben McCormick is the primary caregiver for his brother Milo after their parents’ death. A year into the job, he’s totally got the hang of it. Mostly. Sort of. Not at all?
Defeated and thoroughly chastised for his lack in parenting skills at teacher-parent night, Ben slumps away with the resolve to finally get his life sorted: be a better role model, and sell their parents’ house for a fresh start.
But first, he needs to spruce up his house to hit the market. He’s no DIY king, but Milo’s hot-as-hell woodwork teacher is…
Jack wants an old home to fix.
Thirty-nine-year-old Jack Pecker is waiting for the home of his dreams to come on the market in the summer. What better way to wait the interim months than working on a small renovation gig?
Only trouble is, the gig is for the McCormick brothers. And working in close quarters to red-haired Ben McCormick won’t be easy. Not with the attraction that simmers between them. Attraction Ben makes no effort to hide.
But Jack’s professional. Dating a parent is highly discouraged at Kresley Intermediate, and he’d never cross the lines…
Ben and Jack. Two guys searching for a home –
– a home that might just be where their hearts lead them.

Anyta Sunday's Made For you, the second book in the Love and Family series is an amazing forbidden romance story.
It's no surprise to me that I love this book. The tropes involved are fantastic; forbidden romance, May to September romance, teacher/parent relationship, raising a sibling story, and slow burn romance. All are entwined to make a wonderful story.
Ben's raising his brother Milo, who just so happens to be the best kid ever! I love every single scene of his. He's an absolute delight and will have you smiling throughout with his humor and spunkiness.
As for Jack, he just happens to be Milo's teacher. The relationship Jack has with Milo is terrific and meeting his brother Ben changes Jack's world completely. The two get to know each other as Jack's hired to renovate Ben's home in his spare time. In other words, let the slow burn fun begin as the tension is high.
There are lots of bird watching scenes and talk about birds, which is quite interesting. Knowing nothing on this subject, I learned a lot while also being entertained, as the brothers bond over this.
Anyta Sunday's Made For You is a marvelous, complicated romance. It wonderfully tells of overcoming obstacles and choosing to have love. It's beautiful and tender and the ending is perfect! I highly recommend this one.
