Can Damon break through all the barriers Gail has so carefully placed around her heart and prove that he’s different? Or will Gail’s reservations keep her from falling in love?

~ Review by Denise ~
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*
This is my first time in reading this author. This is the fifth book in this series but would definitely be considered to be a stand alone. I was able to follow it easily. I met two wonderful characters in here that will be the prominent ones with also others from the previous books, as support for Gail and Damon. Gail has a big heart that will give her more weight at times with life than she can realistically support. As a physical therapist as her career with the reasons revealed quite clearly in novel she finds herself in a tight spot when her hours are cut. Her friend Abbey makes a suggestion to her dilemma by getting a roommate with none other then her fiance’s brother Damon. He is looking for a place to stay until he decides if this is actually the place for him while he works with Jason and the business end of things. Knowing he was easy on the eyes and having had a warm thought or two about him did not help ease the situation one bit. After her sister’s birthday get together a decision will be made to go forth with it and meet him first to see if this crazy suggestion could actually work after all. Damon is working on his dreams, achieving his goals and is a man after any woman’s heart with his head on his shoulders and heart of gold himself plus hubba hubba to look at.
Great basis for a novel to get a reader’s attention to venture forth to see where these two and this adventure will take you.
