My review on Goodreads + pic quote

Sorry for you, if you have not read it, yet …
Sorry for you, because if you read, I sure you want more…

“Oh God, her smile as she turned could have brought him to his knees, if he weren’t glued to the door. She bent, pushing the dress over her hips and letting it fall to the floor, revealing black lace panties, pale skin, and the most beautiful ass he’d ever seen. Legs and lace and skin and perfection. That was her. That was all he saw.”

Two damaged heroes. One short romantic story with such a good theme that I’m terribly sad that it is not longer. I would have wished to read such books in full length. If you go into this blind the beginning is a highly confusing. But when you read further everything jumps into the place.

Gabe Paterson is a popular and successful author, but his past puts a dark color on his life. He is trying to deal with that problem, and in this way he meets Elena. At one of their meetings they start the most honest conversation that they ever had, and reveal their deepest secrets. They catch real connection together, which could have a lot of possibilities if only they could be brave enough.

Although it is a short story everything has its place and is well developed. In such small words, Molly create a real emotions and feelings. The heroes are complex and have moving stories to tell. They are genuine and you can’t not cheer for them. It’s easy to fall in love with this unique and profound story and its heroes. I wish I could read more. I’m sure that there can still be a lot of beautiful words to write.
