A fateful childhood accident changes the course of Olivia Owens’ life. Her body left broken by a fall, she becomes a near recluse. She chooses to hide from society by pursuing a writing career, never stepping into the spotlight. Her loving parents coddle her, which only makes it easier to withdraw from the life around her.
Liam Palmer was twelve when he helplessly watched Olivia fall, and he blames himself for the mishap. Guilt propels him into a career in medicine, as he seeks a way to lessen the weight of the responsibility he bears.
After years apart, Liam visits Olivia to offer a surgical solution to her pain. He’s shocked to find a woman where the young girl had once stood. He struggles with his attraction at first, but soon realizes his perfect woman was right before him his entire life.
Olivia is leery, as the surgery he suggests has risks. She also shuns his advances, knowing he could never love the broken woman she is, no matter how much she wants to give in to the man she’s had a crush on her entire life.
Tied together by pain and guilt, they must break free of their past if they’re ever to have a future together.
Olivia and Liam have been tied together for twenty years without the other realizing it. Olivia has had a crush on Liam all this time, and Liam feels personally responsible for the accident that caused Olivia to walk with a limp and live in pain every day. Now that they are adults, Liam is determined to fix the problem that he caused and help set Olivia on the path to complete well being. Little does he know that he is the answer to Olivia’s happiness.
First of all, let me say that I have come to really enjoy most of Alexandra O’Hurley’s books. This story is no different in that I love the plot, I love the character development, and the setting was perfectly laid out in clear detail. On occasion, however, there is a book that does not get a good scrub before publishing, and this is one of them. There are way too many typos and grammatical errors for me to give the book a 4 star rating, even though I really loved the story itself.
Overall, it is a heartwarming and very entertaining tale. I am looking forward to the next book in this series where Bastian gets his girl.
