MEMO TO SELF: SECOND CHANCES ARE FOR THOSE BRAVE ENOUGH TO SEIZE THEM.
Since the betrayal that had upended her life, Breena Quinlan hid. Hid her feelings in the pages of a journal. Hid her body beneath baggy clothes. Hid in an out-of-the-way Oregon town. But Seth Tucker found the woman within. His every look, his merest touch told her that he wanted her. Everything about him, especially the way he tried so desperately to be a good dad to his daughter, screamed that he could be trusted. So Breena took the plunge and shared his address, then shared his bed.
That had been easy.
Sharing her secret required a leap of faith.

Breena Quinlan has been betrayed in the worst way and now she's gone into hiding--from the world, from her feelings, even from herself--but can Seth Tucker find the woman within and show her how to live again? This appears to be Forbes' 3rd book for Silhouette Special Edition. I appreciated meeting Breena and Seth right away. They seemed like interesting people but then we had to wait until chapter 5 before they're together again. It's a romance. I wanted to see the hero and heroine together. The writing was very choppy, a lot of fragmented sentences that grew weary over time, jarring. We had a third viewpoint--Hallie--and her voice sounded different but the hero/heroine's voice sounded somewhat the same and a lot of the words the hero used didn't sound like something a man would say/think. The plot was pretty standard, no surprises. It took so long to get to the romance that I never came to care for the hero and heroine but I did like Hallie. The minor characters (ex-husband/ex-wife) were one dimensional, basically evil characters and therefore unbelievable. Okay, but not great--3 stars
