“I am a fan of Samantha Young. When I saw that she had crossed over to writing an adult fiction, I immediately purchased the book. I was not disappointed. For an author in her mid 20's, she writes as though seasoned beyond her years. What I loved about the book is that the characters were believable. The book wasn't over done. The heroine wasn't a whinny cry baby with self images problems (I've come across a lot of romance books with those kinds of traits for the heroine-not a fan). The heroine, Joss, is a very private and guarded women with some serious flaws. But yet she is very independent and can stand her ground when need be. The hero is alpha male but is patient and persistent with Joss. He slowly breaks down her barriers. Even the sub characters have essence. For instance, I loved how Ms. Young wrote the sessions Joss had with her psychiatrist, Dr. Pritchard. It made me wish I had a psychiatrist like Dr. Pritchard to talk to. LOL. Oh did I mention, the book is also HOT. Lots of sexy love scenes. In all, this is a great stand alone book about one women's journey of self discovery, love and healing. I recommend the book!
