Review by:   Sherry 

If you removed all the sex scenes from this book, it would be a very quick and short read, but you’d still be left with a good story, well rounded and loveable characters, and a depth to the ‘plot’ that would have you fighting to turn the pages – because the steam coming off the pages would have them sticking together.

The author has crafted characters who are damaged, but their individual strengths shine through and make them who they are. It is the skilful writing of Bella Andre that prevents this from becoming a sex-drenched story into an erotic exchange of passion and love that flourishes under adverse conditions.

Her heroine, Janica Ellis, a self-employed designer, is seen by most as a wild-child and believer in ‘free-sex’, reveals her true self when surgeon, Luke Carson, turns up at her home and gives her a night of passion she’s never experienced before.  That night changes her for ever.   

Luke Carson, ER surgeon is on a mission to save the world.  He works too hard, forgets how to play, and eventually burns himself out and is forced to hand over to a colleague when he realises he’s too tired to perform a life-saving operation. For a reason he can’t explain he turns up at his sister-in-law’s house after leaving the hospital they seek consolation in each other’s arms.

Bella Andre takes her hero and heroine on an emotional roller-coaster ride during which they have to recognise their unclaimed baggage and then discard the stuff that’s no longer relevant in their lives.  And she doesn’t give them much time in which to do it.

There is explicit sex on almost every page and yet the characters shine through inspite of it, not because of it.

If you enjoy a good story, with strong characters, explicit sex, and emotional depth, then this is a story for you.

About Bella Andre:

Bella Andre has always been a writer. Songs came first, and then non-fiction books, but as soon as she started her first romance novel, she knew she'd found her perfect career.

If not behind her computer, you can find her reading, hiking, knitting, or lunching with her favorite romance writing ladies.

Bella lives with her fabulous husband and children in both Northern California and a ninety-year-old lakefront log cabin in New York's Adirondacks.
