A PAST TO PLAGUE HIM...

When Reed Walker's sister is raped, memories of his miserable childhood haunt Reed and interfere with his perfectly structured life.

    Not good

    ## NOT GOOD. I cannot recommend this book. I am 370 pages into this story and I am done. No romance at all. Of course the rape is important but it clearly overtook at least half of this book. As for the hero and heroine: he's a smoker, constantly lighting up which is a complete turn-off. And she's annoying, constantly shoving herself down the hero's throat even though he's already said no to her. First nagging him at work, then calling him at home and showing up unwanted at his house. There's a name for that: Stalking. Jeez, he said no thanks, move on lady. Pathetic.

    It was the men themselves, men with backbone and strength who could live through hell and still make it out alive. Men who survived and triumphed.
    Reed Walker's life is almost perfect, he's got a job, a nice apartment shared with his best friend and he's about to ask the girl of his dreams of a date - until he received a call that his sister, Danni has been sexually assaulted. Just when every thing else in his life is starting to fall apart, Sophia, the girl he has been wanting for ages, strolled in to his life.

    Sophia didn't want to add another Troubled Man to the list of her dating partners. She has enough of them. All he wanted to find was someone normal - no emotional issues, no hidden past or scarred soul, just an average guy. But then there was Reed Walker - he has more baggage than anyone. Only if he could tell her what is bothering him - perhaps they could work things out, and she could just kiss it all better.

    The secondary characters are pretty amazing as well. Most especially Nic - he's an awesome, awesome friend. He may hook up with a lot of girls and bring them home (despite the fact that Danni is staying with them), but he doesn't judge, he listens and most especially he wanted to help. 

    I NEVER EXPECTED. I thought all the while... I was so surprised, had my jaws drop in the revelation. I didn't see it coming. Sexual abuse or any types of abuse can happen to anyone, at any place, at any given time. Denial doesn't help. So as keeping it a secret. Victims of abuse are not of fault here. They should know that - we should make them realize it. 

    Linda Kage never fails to amaze me with the twist and turns of her stories. I love this book turned out to be, my expectations were exceeded. This wasn't just a book with a pretty cover, nor it deals with a love story between two couples. Linda Kage ventured into one of the most delicate topics of the society - she had done successfully with tact and sensitivity.

    A heartwarming tale filled with love and hope.
    This story was beautifully written and captivated me from the beginning. I have enjoyed books by this author before and was not disappointed with this one. The characters slowly worked their way into my heart and I found myself sharing many of same emotions as Sophia throughout her journey to find out what loving someone really means.
    Sophia was a courageous and caring woman and I highly enjoyed seeing the relationship between her and Reed slowly develop. She grew a bit throughout the book as well and finally realizes that when it comes to love the heart doesn’t abide by any rules or conditions and nothing can stop it.
    Reed hasn’t always had the best life and it has only gotten worse. Despite all of this he has a big heart and any woman would be lucky to have him. He was an interesting character that I enjoyed getting to know right along with Sophia. He also grew a lot throughout the book just as Sophia did.
    I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves heartwarming romances with characters that will captivate you from the very beginning.
