This is my third book by this same author and I've yet to be disappointed, if there's a Team Pace, I'm on board. In this novella, Pace has written two well rounded characters in restaurant owner Marty and college student Nicole.

Working her way through college Nicole knows that her boss is an as*shole. He's been nothing but mean to her from the time that she's been working by his side at his restaurant, until one day when Nicole has a very bad accident and Marty steps up and becomes the man that
A bittersweet story of redemption and second chances. This story does a great job of using Love as the ultimate healer for forgiveness and bringing out the best in the loved one and ourselves. Pepper Pace understands emotions, self-sacrifice, and oh yes, suffering. This author does an amazing job of character building. Marty and Nicole are flawed, deeply damaged, and it makes them believable and wonderful. What you have is complexity without the cliches that could reduce a solid love story with ...more

Woah, this was another nice quick read.

Don't be surprised that I'm so into the interracial romance lately, I found that it's really sweet when reading interracial couple fall for each other despite of their color of skin.

So, when Marty, the owner and the boss of restaurant that Nicole worked, being so mean and cold to everybody, Nicole didn't have any interest with this 40 yo white man. She admitted that Marty was hot, but personality is all for Nicole. Then when Nicole got hit-run by an SUV a

4.5 stars. This book was short and sweet. It also brought up topic of what damage relationships do happen with your life. Ms. Pace get's into the real story of the character that is based on what is going on with our society. Such as Physical abuse, sexual abuse, drug abuse, death. When you read her books it makes you wonder how some of our society can neglect and ignore what is around us. But it is true when they say when there is love and appreciation with work can battle any emotional and phy ...more

I want mooooreeeeee!!! I tell you I was actually blushing and was a bit shy reading about Marty, his swagger and everything about him. Nicole is one lucky girl. Buy this book, keep it because you will read it again and again..i know i will. :-)

This was a cute intro to this author. I was given a recommendation to read another one of her book, but chose to read this one first. The story called to me and I didn't want to put it down.

I really liked Marty even with his mean ways. Knowing people who act mean use it as a way to distance themselves from others, I was excited to find out Marty's story. True enough, he had been hurt in the past and was protecting his heart.

Nicole was a different kind of character. There was something about her

Very Shocking moments in this book. Both People have gone thru hell and back and have done some awful things to make it thru. They were broken down but existing. Both were like walking shells but seemed to fill up those shells with the things that each have to offer. Their Offerings were wonderful and full of love, great sexy sex and joy. I enjoyed this book and I especially enjoyed the great, rap-up at the end. My kind of book.
