Ellie Evans grew up knowing what it's like to be missing a parent. Her father, Mitchell Evans is a famous field reporter - and he never put anything above his career. Unfortunately, that doesn't stop her from getting engaged to a man who seems different, but really isn't. You'd think she'd have learned. Jack Chapman has learned a lot from Mitch Evans. How to stay detached from an emotionally charged situation, how to keep cool in a war zone, and most of all, how to live on the knife's edge of life. That's something he's determined to do no matter what. When he's injured and needs somewhere to lay low for a few days, Mitch suggests he go stay with his daughter. Jack can get background info for the book he's 'co-writing' with Mitch and Ellie's used to taking in her father's 'strays'. Jack and Ellie *so* don't want to like each other. Neither of them understand the other. Jack sees Ellie as a woman who lets people walk all over her. Ellie sees a carbon copy of her father. I mean, yuck... right? Well, life sure knows how to hit 'em where it hurts. *grin* I don't want to get too in-depth with this review - so I'm going to stop the description there. Jack's backstory is literally heart-wrenching. Watching Ellie and Jack dance around each other while trying to keep their lives the same was incredibly riveting. And seeing their growth really drew the whole story together. Amazing book. If you can keep it together in the last two chapters, I bow to you. Go read it... go on... go!
