Overview

A chance encounter . . .

Grace Warren's life is safe and predictable-exactly the way she likes it. But when she gets roped into going to an auction to help out a friend, everything changes. She meets Seth Tuttle-a guy who unexpectedly kisses her then disappears, leaving her flustered and upset. If she never sees him again, it will be too soon.

A chance for love . . .

Weeks later, when Seth limps into Grace's rehab clinic post surgery, he's every bit as frustrating and annoying as she remembered. Yet there's something about him that makes her second-guess her carefully placed boundaries even though he's everything she's sure she doesn't want in a man. But maybe Seth is exactly what Grace has needed all along-assuming she's willing to risk safe and predictable for a chance at love.

This is the way a clean romance should be. Fun dialogue, sweet story, nothing too deep, and it is CLEAN! Let me emphasize that point. There are way too many romances out there with profanity and people jumping in and out of beds, and this was a delightful escape! I found myself chuckling on more than one occasion. (There are way too many books out there with no comedy either). I have read at least one other book by this author, and this was my favorite of hers, hands down. Okay, so I knew what the ending would be, but the journey was quite a ride. I could identify with Grace, and I think the messages of the book are simple but inspiring. This is a book that bravely examines the issues of disability and fear of living. I believe that anyone who enjoys romances will absolutely adore this book. I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

This is the first book I've read by this author. Early on in the book,I found the wit and humor to be enjoyable, with some of it actually getting a good belly laugh out of me. The characters were quite likable, having the better qualities of a close-knit group of friends. Still, as the book progressed, I felt there was a bit too much drama to dredge through, at times, before the story would move along again. The subject matter of some of the struggles involved in the book do touch on issues that could be considered as universal truths. No one is invincible. Overcoming the fears involved is part of what make these friendships vulnerable, and in the end, it strengthens the bonds of friendship and love even more. Disclosure: I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

What I like most about this author's books are the honest emotions the characters experience. Even though Grace is confident and accomplished, she is affected by and attracted to Seth despite their initial encounter, and struggles with the vulnerability those feelings bring. She also harbors guilt over her brother Alec's paralyzing accident and learns to let go as Seth and his friend Lanna inspire Alec to embrace life. Seth is genuinely charismatic and fun-loving which doesn't change when his life goals and priorities shift as his relationship with Grace develops. An easy read with enjoyable characters.

This was a cute, fun read. It was light, fluffy, and so sweet. It was quick, but also entertaining. I can count on Anderson for a sweet, romantic read and she did not disappoint. I liked both our characters. Grace is a physical therapist, and she's worked hard to become the best in the area. While she used to be more adventurous, she has put that behind her to live a safer life. I like her because she was independent and hard-working (although she was kind of a workaholic). She cared for her brother, even when he wasn't the easiest to care for. Seth is a thrill-seeker. Although he comes across as egotistical at first, he has a good heart and is a lot of fun. The romance wasn't instant, which was good. In fact, at first Grace can't really stand him, although he's attracted to her from the beginning. Their banter was humorous, as we watch Seth try to get under her skin--a lot. But it was cute and fun and I loved seeing them together. I also loved how this one went past them getting together, as most of the time romance stories just stop there. But after they got together, there were still problems. But they worked through them, and I appreciate that being shown because everything isn't all perfect after two people get together. There can still be issues, but the key is to work through them. I flew through this one, because it was cute and fun. I also appreciate how Anderson keeps her stories clean without slacking on quality. If you enjoy romance, then you will definitely enjoy this one.
