Both times, it was a fall that nearly did him in...The first time, it was a tumble down a mountain that threatened Donovan McRae's very survival. And though he had once been the Man Who Had Everything, at that point he thought he had nothing left to lose.

Until Abilene Bravo walked into his life--and he realized he was wrong. Because though he thought he'd lost his heart

This was one of those books where the blurb doesn't match the title, and the text doesn't explain the title until almost halfway through. I wanted to like this book more, if only because there aren't enough heroes with disabilities. Sadly, though, it felt to me as if the wheelchair was mostly a plot device to give an extra reason for angst, and a lot of the problems it threw up could have been solved far more easily than the characters managed. Disappointing, and I would love to see more ...more

I was so happy that Donovan met a woman like Abilene who could help him rebuild his life while they work together to build the children's center. he lost his young son and was hurt in a climbing accident. but they fell on love and decide to have children together.
This was a decent book, the heroine has been waiting for a year for her fellowship with the famous architect, the hero who seems to have gone underground when she finally gets a call and goes to meet him and finds a bitter man in a wheelchair(getting better) who doesn't seem to have any hope. He annoys her, angers her with his talk of how he's done and refuses to interact with the outside world but she is persistent and slowly brings changed in him.

She allows the hero to open up about his

I picked this one up because it's a RITA nominee I was able to find in the bottomless abyss that is my public library's uncatalogued book racks.

Ready for this? I was actually really enjoying this book up until the part where the hero and heroine got together. Trippy, right? Talk about a mindfuck. It was like the heroine lost all her spunk and became a limpet. Here's an example. Dude's in a wheelchair, right? So he rents a handicapable van that's going to meet him at the airport. His plan is to
It was a nice quick read but I was left feeling a little flat at the end of it. H has had a bit of a crap time of it and is feeling sorry for himself/guilty when the h comes along and wants to snap him out of it with her lurve.
She comes across as a bit interfering to me to be honest he's kind of her boss and she just pushes and pushes because of what she wants.
As for the H he is kind of an ass. He is rightly feeling guilty because he made some poor life choices. As a parent struggled with some

I loved that the two main characters were architects. I haven't read a couple like this before. I also really liked that the hero was literally injured. In a wheelchair-like. The wounded hero is such a great theme, and this author took it a step further and physically wounded her hero as well. This led to some serious walls for the heroine to break through.
Well done!
