Back Cover Blurb:

It's been a year since a whirlwind affair brought Thomas Quidell and Samantha Singleton together. Good jobs and wedding plans now swirl around them--as do a mortgage and the stress of Tom's blossoming art career. It's tough, but a strong relationship can weather any storm, and Tom and Sammie believe theirs to be among the strongest.

When a job vanishes and a parent becomes ill, the trauma pulls them in opposite directions. Separated by distance and desperation, they must come to terms with what it means to be apart--and how to work as a team to stay together. Sacrifice may be their only route forward. Will their love survive?

My Review:

I enjoy the personal writing style that Radcliffe uses. It really provides a connection with the main character, allowing readers to experience the story rather than simply read it. She transitions from emotional turmoil to exquisite sex in the blink of an eye without missing a beat. Each aspect of the tale is equally well developed and presented, melding together in a seamless whole that I couldn’t look away from.

I liked the emotional aspects of this novel. The way that Thomas is an alpha male character with needs and difficulties was a nice twist. This is a very personal tale where I felt as if I were invited deep into the characters’ lives. Radcliffe is one of the rare authors who really makes dual perspective narratives work for her. Samantha’s inner attitude really shines through in narrative from her perspective. She’s so real, fun and snarky all the time. I love the way that these two look at and think about each other. The dynamic is fantastic and the way it’s presented made me feel as if I was peeking into their innermost lives and thoughts. Their relationship is sinfully hot while also fraught with the pitfalls of a realistic life. Nothing is ever quite as perfect as it seems.

This novel is simultaneously heartbreaking and life reaffirming. It was the perfect, hot read for a weekend evening and one that I would highly recommend to romance lovers far and wide.
