Gotta be honest; I don’t like contemporary romance, but just look at my rating. And my shelving. Says it all, doesn’t it?
What an emotional rollercoaster! For hero and heroine.
Jacqueline’s a positive female role model, Lucas, a worthy tortured hero, together forming a healthy but not-without-problems relationship, which gradually develops after the hero saves the heroine from an attempted rape and helps her cope with the aftermath of both this and her prior breakup with her boyfriend of three years. Panic. Fear. Grief.
