This is a heartwarming story of a young woman who has been in love with her best friend for years but not sure that he loved her in the same way. Although she wanted him very much, it was painful to be with him because she knew that at any moment he could leave her. Having grown up in a dysfunctional household, Darlene is always waiting the other other shoe to drop whenever things seem too good to be true. So when she finds herself pregnant and alone, and Jace shows up, again, out of the blue after two years, things get interesting.
Author Karen Wiesner does an excellent job of combining love and lust in this book without the need for scenes that are too graphic. She has a wonderful grasp of the emotions a woman feels about the man that she wants but is afraid she shouldn't have. The scenes were intimate in that the characters bared their souls and thoughts to one another.
With the word "trilogy" in the title of this book, I'm assuming that there was a book in this series prior to this one and one yet to be written. I will make it a point to find both and read them as I really enjoyed this book. I don't read books in the Romance genre, but this book was a pleasant surprise and may interest me in pursuing other titles by this author.
