I didn’t plan on him....
Or for him.
Or anything that had to do with Cal Donovan from Boston.
Meeting him had been a complete and utter surprise, taking me completely off guard. I met new people every single day in my line of work and none of them affected me. Wasn’t that the way of things though? You could meet a thousand people and none of them would mean anything to you, but then you’d meet one and they suddenly meant everything.
I was a self-professed workaholic. When did making yourself your number one priority become such a horrible thing? I wasn’t entirely sure, but I learned fairly quickly after my last breakup that men didn’t like being second on a woman's priority list. And they seemed to be intimidated by a motivated female, calling me things like “hard to handle,” “challenging, ” and “difficult.”
Being single seemed to work best for me and I had no plans on changing my relationship status anytime soon.
And then I met Cal.
And he f*****g ruined everything.
WOW!!! I absolutely FLOVED this book! I finished this in a few hours because I COULD NOT put it down! Sterling is a ‘new to me’ author and I am SO FREAKING glad I found her! Love is messy. Love is beautiful. This story of LOVE will melt your FREAKING heart!
OMG! This book…THIS BOOK!!! I loved it…adored it…devoured it!
DHIHY had some of the best characters EVER! The secondary characters, Lucas and Tami….AHHH! They were BRILLIANT!
Sweet, sexy, deep, meaningful, emotional…this book had it all! I was a slave to every single word! It felt so REAL to me and I immersed myself into the story from page one. I didn’t know what to expect with the being a new author for me, so I went in with no expectations whatsoever. After finishing this epic romance, I was just blown away by the brilliance of it all. The author’s ability to make me feel SO MUCH brought such satisfaction my way. It was an astounding and amazing feeling for sure.
Jules and Cal were a fantastic pair! The chemistry…the connection they shared was instant and constant. I won’t say there wasn’t any angst, because there was, just of a different nature that I’m used to. There was no ‘other lovers’ to tear them apart. There was no ‘dark past’ to consume them. There was nothing forbidden about their connection. The only thing keeping them apart was their professional success. Jules and Cal has their professions and they were DAMN GOOD at them. Trying to pair THAT with a relationship? That’s a little harder to manage. They weren’t looking for this…they were looking out for themselves and their future. When these two become entangled, so much more is on the line. Choices need to made. Sacrifices need to be considered. They weren’t looking for this, but they can’t just let it go either.
If you are looking for a hella’ ANGSTY read, look no further. If you are looking to couple that with a heart wrenching, beautiful, and emotional love story with a hard-fought HEA, STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING and purchase this story right now! You will feel things for these characters…you will root for these characters. Your heart will be broken and then carefully put back together. Sterling is an impeccable storyteller with a talent for bringing her characters to life. I’m so grateful to have found an author with such talent and heart. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.
