Settling into her job, giving her daughter roots and security—that was what mattered. She felt like a plant that had been growing happily in one spot for years, only to be dug up and tossed on the compost heap. You must really hate me. Thanks for the morning pick-me-up! It will be fine once we land on the island. Yes, her family had been broken, but breakages could be mended.
No one depending on her. And she was going to make it work. Somewhere that was their own. . As Evanna finally decides to move on with her life, leaving the island for good, something happens that makes Logan see her in a completely different light.
I loved it when I was your age and I came with my grandparents. He might break my heart… Nurse Jenna Richards did not come all the way to Glenmore to fall head over heels for the first sexy doctor she saw. Five reasons why I shouldn't fall in love with Dr. They should be banned for everyone over twenty-one. Not just for herself, but for Lexi.
Not sure where to start? Yet he seems to see her only as his colleague and friend. Never had he walked through the door and grabbed her, overwhelmed by lust. She had to look confident and in control. The book is set on the Scottish Island of Glenmore which the author has written about before and includes past characters. And she knew all about being terrified, because she was too. Far away from everything that reminded her of her marriage.
At least I could have seen my friends. Underneath that moody, sullen exterior lurked a terrified girl. That would have been like describing herself as sexy, and she would never in a million years describe herself as sexy. When she was lying in bed staring into the darkness she had moments of utter panic, wondering whether she could actually do this on her own. Just admit that the situation is crap. Nothing about this place is fine. As long as I block out the fact that my Dad is hooked up with someone barely older than me.
I liked the setting enough that I will definitely look for the previous books. She had just managed to put Clive out of her mind and Lexi had stuffed him back in her face. Make sure to check out the , too. Jenna struck me as a wimpy divorcee with a personality about as appealing as a dishrag. I have not read any of the previous books and did not feel left out or confused at all. If you want my honest opinion, I hope Dad and his shiny new girlfriend drown in their stupid hot tub.
But what's a single mom to do when a devastatingly dreamy doc has his eye on her, and the entire island community is mischievously matchmaking. Make Dad pay maintenance or something. We could have stayed there. The matchmaking was also very funny. For now her priorities were remembering to breathe in and out, get up in the morning, go to work, earn a living. Blissfully unaware that her mother was thinking about sex, Lexi scuffed her trainer on the ground.
Resolutely she blocked that train of thought. They might heal in a different shape, but they could still be sturdy. Will it be too late for Logan to make Evanna his island bride, and mother to his little daughter? Had she been crazy to move so far away? She needed anger if she was going to make this work. Oh, for crying out loud—she pushed her hair away from her eyes and reminded herself that she was thirty-three, not twelve. Single-parent families, stepfamilies—they came in different shapes.
If he had grabbed her she would have been thinking about all the jobs she still had to do before she could go to bed. Stop trying so hard, Mum. It was up to her to knit her family together again in a new shape. I could have hung around the house. I have my daughter to think of 4.
Boys, my friends, hanging out, and did I say boys? I have to work with the man 5. People said that time healed, but how much time? I'm ordinary and he is a sex god 3. There are no big surprises in this story or in the characters. At least that would have eased the financial pressure, and her mother would have been able to watch out for Lexi while she worked. No, they were better on their own. Should she have gone and stayed with her parents? Cool stuff, not digging up bits of pot from muddy ground.
