  • Abandoned Hearts, What A Story!

    This is the first book by this Author that I have read and what a story! Claire Stone and Michael Karalis have things both in their past and present they have to overcome, if they are going to be together. A beautiful story that handles Claire's abuse at the hands of her ex, and what Michael is going through with both his Mother's health, and his ex, as he tries to get custody of his son Oscar. I recommend this book. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

  • what a story!

    Michael and Claire are both reeling from relationships gone horribly bad, and they get off on the wrong foot when they first meet. Michael's ex-wife took their son and moved away, making it difficult and expensive for him to have much contact with Oscar. Claire's ex-husband was abusive, and is in prison for stabbing her. She needs a fresh start, and moves to take a job as a private duty nurse for Daphne, Michael's mother. He's dealing with trying to get custody of his son, while coping with Daphne's impending death. This book is both heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time, full of loving characters, family and friendship, drama with the exes, apologies and forgiveness. Michael and Claire - both broken, bitter, not looking for any type of relationship. And that's when love strikes. Oh, this one starts with a kind word here and there, before moving to friendship. The side characters are just amazing. Daphne - so very smart and intuitive, I grew to love her like Claire did in the short time they spent together. Von - Daphne's old friend and housekeeper is the best type of friend. Norman - Michael's best friend, they can talk about anything. Joanna - Norman's wife, she was Claire's best friend years ago. This is my first book from this author, and I'm hooked! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

  • Heartfelt Romance with All the Feels

    This romance takes place in Australia. It takes a while to puzzle out both the hero’s and heroine’s backstories; no dreaded info dump here. They've both had, and currently have to some extent, troubles with their prior relationships, she with an abusive man and him with a wife who left him, taking their son. I'd call him bitter and abrasive, especially at first, while she is fragile and emotional. I could sympathize with her right away, but I found him to be a bit of a jerk at times, which I never like a romantic hero to be, no matter the reason. They certainly got off on the wrong foot at their meet-cute, but the book is long enough to show their relationship naturally develop, first becoming friends and then possibly more. The secondary characters in this book are phenomenal. I particularly like Daphne and Von, the hero's dying mother and the long-term friend/housekeeper, respectively. The author writes the characters well, and the plot has heartache built right into it with the terminal mother. We can't help but want the heroine to feel right in her life, no matter what shape that takes, because of her past abuse. A well-done, heartfelt story. I received a free copy of this book, but that did not affect my review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Heartfelt

    This is a heartfelt storyline that is relatable Michael Karalis is watching his mother die and battling the ex-wife for custody of his five year old son. He’s distrustful, but Claire will become a light in his world, despite his reservations. Can two broken Souls find there way to each other? This book was well worth my time to read.
