I have never had a therapist I didn’t want to murder where they sat. As a collective group they all say there is no way around grief, only through it, but for me, grief has become who I am. The idea of shedding it is as ludicrous as stepping outside of my own skin.
The fact is, some things can break you. I mean shatter your soul and cast it into the wind in a billion tiny ...more
I'm very particular about how I like my romance books so I might be tough on the authors sometimes but I always have the best intentions at heart.
Saying that, I had only one thing I didn't like about this book. One and only thing. Dual POVs. I'm not a fan of it but I can work with it if it helps the story, adds something to it. I'm of the opinion ...more

The storytelling in this will rope you right in, if it had not already, as soon “Mr. Abernathy” opens his door to one very unexpected and unsuspecting woman.
Norah’s new mission was working to ease the burden of those who could not manage or who need help with the simplest of day-to-day things. I mean, we are talking about senior citizens, really. But when she comes face to face with her newest (and hottest) client, Norah thinks she already knows exactly who ...more

A guy who is actually her new client, thanks to his best friend's finagling.
Their two best friends' finagling, though, brings them into each other's ...more

Justin & Norah-
My first thought was this cover was sexy.
Justin right off the bat had me swooning and wishing he had not been dealing with the issues he had on his plate. I think when he met Norah they were perfect for each other from the onset. Her personality was genuine and their connection to me was almost immediate. I liked the complexity of the characters and the way the author developed them. The relationship wasn't quick easy. There were games being played I won't say by whom. One ...more
This book was incredible. I feel as rung out as Justin and Norah. This book shattered me and then put me back together.
The storyline is one of the saddest I’ve ever read. What made it incredible was the pure love it also told.
Justin and Norah are two characters made for each other. They were destined to find one another. They’re both strong and passionate. They complemented each other in every way. The passion between the two was scorching hot.
I also have to say I greatly ...more
Wow... What a story! I almost don't know what to say... This made my heart ache not only with the grief and sorrow, but also with the truly special love that grew between Norah and Justin. They are both wonderful characters, but it's Norah's strength in her love of the broken Justin that stood out for me. This is more than just another romance novel and, yes, there's enough heat to cause your Kindle to combust . This is also more ...more
I enjoyed this book. Justin and Norah seemed perfect together. I love how the author weaves really good information about complexes and disabilities into her books without it overtaking the plot. I knocked two stars because of one main reason. I came into it expecting something really different just as her other books have been but was met with a similar storyline to a lot of other authors. What saved it for me were her authentic characters and the humor ...more
I am so thankful for the opportunity to have read an ARC of this book for my honest review.
I wanted to read this because of the cover.. the sexy cover and the ...more
The story line is different to the standard romance recipe we are all accustomed to, which was refreshing. The description words used are also not often seen in romance books, which gave it a real classy edge.
I would love to see more stories on this ...more
This is such a sad story. It takes time to unravel (I was confused for a few chapters before it started making sense) but it yanks hard on your heartstrings til the very end. I'm emotional anyway so I am easily set off but this story ran thru every emotion there is. I'm so glad Justin got help dealing and processing everything with Norah. They are a great team and a sweet couple. Definitely will be recommending this book to every reader I know.
