This is not my first Samantha James. I've read several of her other books and was not impressed. I tried this because of high reveiws on other websites and I was not disappointed. I thought it was FANTASTIC. There's no real storyline. The book just focuses on the internal conflicts of the characters (which focuses on the two) and how they reslove them.

It has its sweet parts and its gut-wrenching parts -- lots of angst.

As I said, I've read the good and bad reviews and I'll have to agree with the good ones.

Wonderful book! I loved the characters! Their interaction was well written. The flaws were realistic, the situation was believable. Good ending, just the right number of love scenes.

this book was so good, i read it in less than a week and for me that is unusal. It deserves all 5 stars. Samantha James knows how to develop the characters in her books. It really is like reading pages from days gone by. Hope you enjoy this book as well as I did.

Loved this book! Simon is the tortured soul that finds saving in the love of Annabel. True romance at its best. I think that this might be my favorite book from her.

This was not only a wonderful love story, but it had alot of emotional strings in it too. Not all authors put that kind of story in their books. This story makes you laugh, and cry and also wish you were Anne so that you could be the one who heals Simon.
