I loved this story! The storyline of Analind was very detailed and it keeps you wanting more. After her EX-husband did her so dirty, guess who reappears when she has shown she's strong and will make it on her own. Controlling Analind was no more, she was free, and she was finally getting to put her Pastry degree to use. Analind and her best friend Kendra go to a local pub, the Monastery, to celebrate Analind's new job. This is where she sees the handsome Rush Clemons for the first time. She too doesn't go unnoticed...

I received this as an ARC, giving my honest review as required. I honestly loved the book and have read it twice now!
This is such a sweet and happy story. I loved watching Analind grow into a stronger woman and relax enough to enjoy her life. Rush is a dream come true, sweet and attentive, loving and understanding, but most of all, protective without being overbearing. His love for Maddie is adorable and super sexy. Thank goodness for Rush being the type of person he is or they may have had very different result when Julia pulled her stunt and Trenton created chaos. Their love and trust in each other is obvious and is the best thing that could have happened to each other. Thank you for an amazing read, definitely recommend for all.
Loved this story. Story was very descriptive so you weren't having to ask questions at the end of the book. Loved how patient Rush was with Analind. The fact that they were both not looking for love and love proved to be looking for them was wonderful. Excellent story if you are looking for a good romance!
A. Gorman is a new to me author. I try to read a book by each author attending a signing event. In preparation I chose to read this book after reading the blurb. I really enjoyed it. I fell in love with Rush and his family. The way he treats Analind will have you swooning. Of course it might get a little boring if there wasn't a bad guy. You will love to hate Trenton--so creepy. I will be making time to read more of the authors books.
