An emotional novel about not seeing what's right in front of you – and not knowing what you've got until it's gone.

Cate has always taken Nick for granted. Through a wild youth of mistakes, bad choices, and self–destructive behaviour, Nick has been the one thing that Cate could count on. She knows he loves her, but she can't love him back. He's too perfect, too strong, too caring. She has darkness in her that can't handle that much light.

When an unexpected pregnancy forces them into a marriage of convenience, Cate hopes that Nick can love her enough for the both of them. But as time passes, Nick grows frustrated and finally decides to cut himself loose. Will his absence prove to Cate just how much she needs him?

The first chapter of Almost Mine is what appears to be the books ending with Cate ready to attempt to get her husband back (he's been living in one of the outbuildings for a few months).  It then goes back and introduces us to Cate and Nick who are in their late teens and have known each other since they were toddlers. They love each other but only Nick is actually IN love with Cate. They have been best friends all their lives and are always there for each other. Since Cate had pretty rocky teen years Nick was there for Cate more than the other way around. They get married but Nick knows that Cate is not in love with him but he loves her so much that he is willing to marry her anyway. Cate is not a likable person in the first half of the book.  She is pretty self-centered and not at all considerate. I found it hard to believe that Nick loved her so much. About half way through the book Cate matures and finally sees that she is in love with Nick! But is it too late?  They agreed to get married because Cate was pregnant but lost the baby just before the wedding.  They decided to marry anyway.  Cate really, really wanted children so Nick felt his sole purpose was to give them to her.  When he found out he was sterile, he started to pull back from Cate thinking she should be with someone who could give her children. By this time Cate realized that she wants Nick more than children but they aren't communicating so he doesn't know this. This was a well written, emotional book with great descriptions.  I was worried that Nick was going to leave before Cate got to tell him how she really feels. I thought the characters were perfect for the book. I liked watching them grow and mature.  Both Nick and Cate changed dramatically as they got older. I won this book in giveaway.
