Recovering heroin addict, Angel, walks into Pine Bluff, Alabama to meet up with an old friend. But what he finds on his journey is a new romantic partner, Maggie. In this lovely addition to the Pine Bluff series, Angel and Maggie rehabilitate each other.

“Maggie? Who takes care of you?"
"Me?" She pulled away. "I don't understand what you mean."
"I bet you took care of your dad. I know you catered to Brian and Phillip. Who has ever taken care of you?"
"I'm f-fine. I can take care of myself."
"I know you can. But what if I want to take care of you? Would you trust me enough to let me?”

Two people, too much baggage, too different. Angel and Maggie find themselves in a perfect working relationship and fall into an imperfect romance - but oh how sweet it is. Full of doubt and misunderstanding and a lot of angst, they try to climb their hurdles together, but some demons you have to slay by yourself.

Nancee Cain crafted a well thought out and absolutely moving story. Although I love her writing, I wasn’t convinced that this story was going to appeal to me - I didn’t count on my knee

I could not put this book down! This was an amazing emotional book. I laughed, I cried and I fell in love with Angel. Nancee took a difficult subject and turned it into a beautiful uplifting story. All the things Angel overcame are things that many people go through and sadly don't get their happily ever after. Then Maggie overcoming all her insecurities from her past as well and that was also very uplifting. The best part of this book was how real it felt the main characters struggled in their ...more

Their story brings two vulnerable people together to each find the part that has been missing, making them whole. I loved this novel and look forward to the next book in the series. ...more

This was my first book by Nancee Cain, but it definitely won't be the last! The characters are really relatable and real, while the writing was so well done it draws you in until you feel equally invested in their journey throughout the story. By far one of the best reads for me so far this year. Beautifully done, Ms Cain! ...more

By far the best I’ve read by Cain. Realistically relatable, she provides an in depth connection to both Angel and Maggie. We also see a glimpse at Damien and previous characters from Pine Bluff.

There are addiction triggers but nothing graphic.

Maggie has insecurities that she has to work at to overcome, while Angel battles demons of the past while keeping current demons at bay, for a chance at a better life.

The Rehabilitation of Angel Sinclair is Amazing.
Angel is a recovering addict. Intent on making amends.
Maggie is a divorcee intent on making her Inn a success.
There are obstacles they must overcome , their own demons make themselves know from time to time, but they want to make this work.
These characters are well written and real.
I recommend this story to all .
5 stars.

“She completed him, filling in the gaps of his imperfections. All he wanted was to love her, care for her, comfort her and laugh with her for the rest of his life.”

An authentic tale about living life on life’s terms, and the acceptance of the perfectly imperfect parts of that life. The Rehabilitation of Angel Sinclair is a relatably raw story of two flawed individuals each dealing with their own broken. This is a story about addiction and amends, yet it is so, so, so much more. It’s a poignant t

Once you open this book, you will not want to put it down!! LOL This story is about Angel, who is a recovering addict. And he just may become your new book boyfriend, he is such a good guy!!
He comes to Pine Bluff, Alabama, and it's fantastic that he does. For this is where he meets Maggie, who also is dealing with her own issues....a bitter divorce. They are both looking for a new start, and I love that they find it in each other!!!
At first glance one could say they are opposites in many ways,

Like its predecessors, this third Pine Bluff novel is beautifully written in a style that pulls the reader into the story. Nancee Cain not only weaves a fabulous tale, she runs the gamut of emotions with her characters, and the beauty of it is I didn't feel like a spectator - I felt Angel's struggle with his addiction as well as Maggie's trust issues. I felt the chemistry between them as Maggie worked through her problem with the age difference and Angel pushed without being pushy. I also love t ...more

The Rehabilitation of Angel Sinclair is the third book in the Pine Bluff series by Nancee Cain. They each stand on their own, however. This story, about Angel Sinclair, tells of second chances and what life has to offer when you forgive yourself and take a leap of faith. Angel is a former addict with a penchant for writing graffiti. Maggie is a shy, divorced woman who takes a chance on him, without judgment. They share a beautiful story and give readers a lesson we can all heed. If you'd like a ...more

A heartfelt snd moving story about a troubled, recovering addict who has never felt worthy of happiness but meets and falls in love with a lonely, older woman who is trying to make a life for herself after an unhappy marriage and divorce. Maggie is a strong woman but trusting a man again doesn’t come easy to her and she struggles with her feelings for Angel.

My heart went out to Angel who is still facing his demons from his youth and the need to be seen and heard. He is a good man and Maggie can

A wonderful story about second chances for 2 people have gone thru so much in their lives and what they do to bring their lives together in hopes of being healthy and happy. Life is difficult but not matter what each person goes thru, it can bring them together in heart , soul and mind. Another 5 star book for Nancee Cain and I would give more if I could. I'm excited about the next book in this series ...more

Adrenaline Junkie?

All these have been used to describe Angel at one time, but nobody actually has taken the time to know and understand just WHO Angel Sinclair is. The only people who have come close are his best friends Ken and Emma. But now Ken is dead and Emma is married with a life of her and Angel is left to deal with his clean lifestyle and make amends on his own. Everyday is a struggle for him to keep to his clean lifestyle and not j

This book can tug at your heart strings in a few ways while inspiring you to be a better person. It's easy to forgive others but forgiving yourself that's a whole other story, because no one is harder on you than you. I love how this book captures that struggle, you wont regret reading this book. ...more

Another hauntingly beautiful story full of emotion, redemption and second chances. I loved the characters and their self discovery and journey not only that they went through themselves but with each other. Able to draw strength and courage from their relationship and love.

Wow...what a breathtaking amazing ride of a book!!

Nancee has done it yet again!! This 3rd book is absolutely beautifully written!! I truely felt like I took on each of the characters and seen their viewpoints and felt their emotions. We all have our own demons to fight and she did an amazing job putting that ideal into a fictional reality. In a way she's allowed her readers to embrace a different perspective, to be empathetic, and to not judge a book by it's cover. We can all help each other ove

Months ago I read Dylan’s story, and I just binged through David and Angel’s. I’ve loved every book in this series but there was just something extra special about the heart of an Angel. His heart was broken by many but not shattered beyond repair. It grew instantly to full captivity, simply starved by the neglect his life delt him. I wanted to hug him tight and tug on his dreads until he believed he was as worth it. When he knocked on her door because he was lost, his destiny was on the other s ...more

Wow. If you read the previous books in the series, you know Angel is an addict. What you don't expect reading this story is how truly hard getting clean and staying clean really is for an addict plus how tricky making amends is. This was truly an amazing story of recovery for Angel and Maggie. Maggie suffered alot of emotional abuse from her ex-husbsnd, which means she has lasting issues she as to overcome to find her happiness with Angel. Wow, definitely an amazing book, with a few twists I did ...more

I really liked that this book was very realistic in dealing with drug addictions. As someone who works in healthcare I have seen many books that are not realistic about people in recovery being able to break the habit easily when that is not the case at all. I really liked both main characters as both were broken and they both helped each other to heal. I also liked seeing the characters of previous books who also helped the characters in the healing process.

Recommended to Deb by: Nancee Cain
Nancee Cain is able to weave realistic issues into a story that touches all of the emotions. Her story shows that age isn't an important factor in whom we love. The will and need to fight for what brings you happiness is a strong theme in this book. I have all of the Pine Bluff series, but I have to limit myself to one a night. I have to sleep sometime. You can read them as a stand-alone. But I think you will enjoy them more if you read the series beginning to end. ...more

“Maggie, when will you believe me when I say you're beautiful?"

"I'm not twenty-five," she replied. "I need to lose ten pounds--"


Angel placed a hand over her mouth. "Don't talk about the woman I'm crazy about like that. It pisses me off, because she's perfect as is.”
“Maggie? Who takes care of you?"

"Me?" She pulled away. "I don't understand what you mean."

"I bet you took care of your dad. I know you catered to Brian and Phillip. Who has ever taken care of you?"
