I was a bit hesitant starting this book because the cover is kind of creepy. But after finishing it I can tell you that it completely blew me away. The author duo created a wonderful story. They have a talent to reach the deepest corner of the reader heart and soul.
Guy, whom we already met in beautiful allure, is a single father and general surgeon. He is hardened by hi life painful and disappointing turns. He dreamt big but her wife actions forced his hand to alter her dreams. He had a challenging life but loves his children wholeheartedly so at the end he doesn’t have regrets. He is a warm hearted person deep down bit wary and closed off toward outsiders. He tries to protect his kids from any kind f possible pain and heartbreak. He is a really good father. And those kids are so adorable and loveable. Little cuties.
Jules, his son new nurse, is the first one to crack his hard exterior in a long time. She is amazing, kind, protective and resilient. She went through a lot but came out on top. She is immediately attracted to Guy and his kids just make him more irresistible for her. Guy little family fills a void in her heart, starts to finally heal her. She is honest and throws herself into the relationship without reserves.
However life is not easy and there are so many painful moments in the plot. My heart broke for them continuously, especially for Finn. His condition was a bit fishy for me from the beginning and when the truth came out I was equally relieved and angry.
This is an exceptional story about second chances, unconditional love, endurance and healing. It has a more mature and less dramatic setting. I adore it and recommend it to everybody who loves any kind of contemporary book.
