REVIEW: Change of Plans by Dylan Newton


This is the first Dylan newton novel I’ve read and now I’m just wondering how I’ve missed out on reading her first two novels. Change of Plans was an absolute delight. There was little wait for everything to get started between Bryce and Ryker—no extended backstory or build up, instead we got to meet them as they met each other and just as they learned each other’s history, we mostly did too. We learn how Bryce has become the guardian to her three adorable and hilarious nieces and how much her life has shifted, as anyone who has kids know—3 can be a handful, especially if you’re thrown into parenting deep end of the pool without any floaties. And we also learn about Ryker and how he came to having a prosthetic and his history with PTSD, his family, and his general grumpiness (grumpiness that’s just a cover for fear of being hurt).

I adore these characters and how they complement each other and, really just everything about them. These are two stellar human beings who found their perfect match at just the right moment and their romance is one of kindness and hilarity and just such heartfelt emotion; I’m sad to see them go but so glad I have two other novels with associated characters I can backtrack and read.


In this charming romantic comedy, a hometown hero comes to the rescue of a chef unexpectedly left to care for three little girls—who may end up saving him too.

When disaster strikes and chef Bryce Weatherford is given guardianship of her three young nieces, her life goes from cooking with fire…to controlling a dumpster fire. Five‑year‑old Addison refuses to remove her fairy wings, eight‑year‑old Cecily won't bathe, and tween June is majoring in belligerence. With all this chaos, Bryce jettisons hope for a life outside of managing her family and her new job.
It's been years since Ryker Matthews had his below‑the‑knee amputation, yet the phantom pain for his lost limb and Marine career haunts him. To cope, he focuses on his vehicle restoration business. He knows he's lucky to be alive. Yet, “lucky” feels more like “cursed” to his lonely heart.  
When Ryker literally sweeps Bryce off her feet in the grocery store's baby aisle, they both feel sparks. But falling in love would be one more curveball neither is ready to deal with… or is it exactly the change of plans they need?
