It wasn't that Nicky hadn't loved her husband - quite the opposite. By leaving Nicky had hoped to provoke some kind of reaction. Blake Chandler was the strong and silent type. He didn't show much emotion behind those impassive grey eyes. Of course, Nicky's plan had misfired - Blake had been only too happy to sign the divorce papers.
Now, four years later, Nicky is abducted...more

A very raw, very real portrayal of a marriage that is destroyed when two people play games and refuse to communicate with each other. One is motivated by pride, the other is plagued with insecurities, but both love each other madly.

This is a second chance at love and a HEA. I thought this story was very well done and one of the better HPs I have come across. It is subtle without a lot of tension, but yet very powerful. I was frustrated at times watching them carelessly throw away something so p...more
The heart desires to be loved and wanted. And often a lack of communication can play havoc in the lives of two people who are immensely in love with each other. This is such a "real" story. It has happened to so many people we know but life is cruel and we seldom get a second chance to clear the air. We seldom get a second chance at love. So we spend our life in anguish, filling our heart with hatred and resentment.

We are introduced to Blake, the strong, silent , responsible type, who didn't ex...more

I really liked the characters in this one, and was happy to see them get their happily ever after. Not a 5-star though because I thought the story was a little too flat -- not enough ups and downs, just sort of meandered along until it finished. Still a decent read though.
I just can't understand why two people are so in love with each other but can have so much trouble in communicating their wants and need and to the extreme that they can't express their love.
I just did not see any romance in this, gave up on it 1/3 in the book.
I really like the way van der Zee explores relationships. Sure, they do border on the melodramatic, but there is a solid foundation of truth within. Communication is so fundamental to a healthy and lasting relationship – Blake and Nicky's insecurities and reticence led to a divorce neither of them even wanted.

Too much coming-together-no-we're-not for me. Still, a mature emotional read

I always wanted to write, ever since I was a child growing up in Holland. I was a dreamer, reading books and making up my own stories. I had notebooks full of stories which I illustrated with crayon drawings. My brothers burned the notebooks in the attic one day, fortunately not burning down the house. They don’t remember this now, but I do!

I also always wanted to travel. Holland is very flat and...more
