The beautiful, compassionate therapist living next door.
A meddlesome grandma determined to get them together.
I was expecting a proposal on my birthday, and I got dumped instead.
How could I have been so clueless?
Grams knew exactly how to distract me.
The “cute boy next door” who’s been helping her with yard work clearly needs a little therapy. Who better to call than her newly single therapist granddaughter?
She even fakes dementia to get me to visit, and now that I’m here she’s doing everything in her power to throw us together.
Not that I’m complaining. Ryan is the sexiest man I’ve ever met--I mean the full package, from the chiseled jaw to the massive shoulders to the rippling abs. (And yes, his package is full, and he knows exactly how to deliver it.) He makes me want to get out of my head and follow my heart. He makes me want to take chances I never thought I’d take.
He also makes me want to take my clothes off. A lot.
But he’s moody and challenging--one minute he’s an open book, and the next he’s completely closed off. He holds me like he’ll never let go, but insists he wants to be alone.
Some wounds are so deep, only love can heal them.
How can I convince him to let me try?
I love Melanie Harlow, so when this one appeared on my Kindle, I started it immediately.
There were parts of this one that I absolutely loved. Ryan and Stella were interesting, and I liked both of them. I sympathized with him. I liked the way Stella and Ryan interacted, and I loved the way Ryan was written, the way he was both aloof and really wanting someone to reach out to him and at the same time wanting to be left alone.
Unfortunately, this story, while well written and full of characters I enjoyed, it felt like I was reading something I had read before. It didn't have the depth and the heart that I usually find in Melanie Harlow's books, and I am not sure what it was about this one that made it feel like it missing something...but I felt that there was more story here than was told. Part of it, I think, was that it felt like there was a lot of importance placed on the other characters in the story, and it pulled the focus from Stella and Ryan.
I am not saying I didn't enjoy this title. I did. I was just hoping for a little more than I got from this one. I do recommend it overall.
