Nothing existed except the two of them. Her senses had shut down, other than the most basic. All she could think about was sex, desire, want and need. And Damien. Tonight she was a girl who could have anything her heart desired. And she desired Damien. Abi isn’t really one for believing in ‘happily ever afters’. The combination of spending two years working in Afghanistan as a reconstructive and plastic surgeon, and post-traumatic stress disorder tends to do that to a person. When she takes a job at a high-end plastic surgery clinic in Hollywood, all she’s thinking about is rebuilding herself and healing. There’s no room in her life for anything but surviving. Exceedingly hot or not, Damien would only be an unnecessary complication. Especially since he’s a single Dad. Abi resolves to keep her distance. Unfortunately this might be little difficult since he’s her boss and neighbour…

I give it - 4/5
My review - Oh this book was so wonderful and so heartbreaking for Abi and Damien. who have a lot to deal with in this book to try and get past it to move on with their lives and hopefully be happy with each other.
Abi has gotten a new job. After being discharged from Afghanistan she starts a job at the hospital where she meets Damien. Who has a really cute daughter and a not so lovely ex-wife who thinks her life is more important than her daughters and always put Damien in difficult positions.
Abi is hiding something from Damien. Something that happened when she was in Afghanistan and she is too afraid to let him know. Throw in the nightmares she has, things aren't going well for her. But, hanging out with Damien and Summer lift up her spirits. She is able to let go of her past and just be happy but, will someone try and throw a spanner in their happily ever after?
I really loved this story. I enjoyed reading about both of the characters and their backstories. They both have a past, different from each other but are both still dealing with things.
A wonderful romance story about finding someone who means the world to you and letting yourself give in.
