WOW!  Amy Brent has done it again.  This book was amazing.  It was a deeply emotional read.  In a live interview with Amy, she told us that this book had some things in it that were based on her actual life.  You can tell that this book means something to her on a deeper level than some of her other books.  It really reaches deep into your soul.  Not only that but she really does know how to write a good romance that will make your toes curl.

In this book Melissa is suffering from a deep chronic depression, that has went on for so long that her body is giving up the fight.  Melissa has had a shitty hand in life.  Her first love breaks her heart and his promise to come back to her, by getting married.  Then she finally thinks she has healed and moved on when the man she married dies in a car accident, leaving her to raise their daughter on her own.  She is so eat up with guilt and blame that she is hurting herself.

When she goes for her check up her doctor tells her that she has to do something different.  That her body can’t take much more.  So he refers her to a therapist.

Brandon is a top-notch therapist in his field.  He is smart wealthy and a single dad.  He made a huge mistake a long time ago when he married a Russian immigrate to allow her to obtain a green card.  She abandoned him and their son.  He lost the only woman he loved to marry this woman.  At least he got the money to start up his practice.

When Melissa goes to her first therapy section, she is stunned.  There he is.  Brandon.  Her first love.  The start of all this.  Can Melissa open up and try to heal?  Can Brandon help Melissa without crossing the line?

This book was emotional charged and the characters were amazing.  Melissa is truly in need of help.  Her depression is so bad that she has body aches, nightmares, crying spells, sleep problems, weight loss and even her pallor is pale.  She has trust issues and the road for her and Brandon is a tough one.  They have many obstacles to overcome.  She has panic attacks and all she wants is to be a better person for her daughter.  The journey she is on, is a slow process, but you can follow along as she heals and slowly blossoms into a wonderful and happy person.

This book not only has a wonderful tale of strength and the will to survive, it has a hot as hell man who is sexy as fuck.  Man the scenes between these two are freaking hot and are in plenty.  This book will make you wet and close to the edge.  Toe curling power.  This book is that HOT!  So pick it up now or you are gonna miss out.
