really liked it
bookshelves: romance, bbw, contemporary, disabled, mental-illness, reviewed

The author's goal was to approach a romance in a realistic way, and most of the time I felt that she achieved that. I don't know much about stroke patients but I got the feeling O'Connor didn't either. Aside from that, the tackled uncomfortable details with great honesty that left me really rooting for a happy ending. Although the end wasn't exactly that it didn't leave me disappointed either.

 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) This was a fluke read for me, and I loved it. Definitely a keeper for me. I actually acquired my sister's copy. She didn't mind though. :)

Christy Stewart I didn't know what to expect from it or even what it was, I just read someone say it was good once and found it for dirt cheap. I was suprised at how good it actually was but was scared it was going to end badly (I hate unhappy endings!)

 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) Me too. I would have disliked it had the ending not been optimistic.
