Very sweet novel. I can't say much about this novel other than it was great. I loved how the heroine stood up to the hero after her miscarriage. It was delightful watching him squirm especially when he had been so callous and rude to her. The heroine was so brave and perfect. The hero eventually shaped up but he took a little bit longer. I did like him at the end but his arrogance and betrayals of what he did to the hero ticked me off but good!

Very good book. I love a book with a sexy Irishman in it and Ronan certainly fit the bill. Ronan is back in California after having broken off his affair with Laura. He couldn't get her out of his mind, so he has come back to start back up with her. But she wants nothing to do with him again. She's angry with him, and hurt because when she tried to reach him he ignored her. Now he wants to know what she's hiding from him, and will do what he needs to to find out. He pursues her, and ends up conv ...more

Very enjoyable book! I really liked both Ronan and Laura, they were perfect for each other. And I especially loved when they visited Ronan's homeland of Ireland. Now I'm looking forward to reading Sean and Georgia's book.

Es una historia corta pero intensa, es muy real y aunque a veces matarías a los protagonistas, les coges cariño. Recomendado para leer en una vez y sentir que no has perdido el tiempo.

It's a short but intense history, is very real and although sometimes the protagonists would kill them you take honey. Recommended to read at one time and feel that you have not wasted your time.
Anabella
Una historia monótona, un tanto aburrida, falta de personajes, trama y algo que te cautive. Tiene mucho amor y romanticismo pero el principio es un tanto aburrido, parece más una novela de Televisa que una trama; no me quejo, me gustó pero le faltó demasiado.
Booklover
Enjoyed this one very much,it was sweet story,adored each n every character,though would have loved some more inner thoughts from Ronan's side.Overall loved this one.Would also like to have Sean's story and Laura's sister story.
Recommend it.
