The circumstance in which Matt finally gets his chance to speak to Gina is not ideal and is actually downright unpleasant, but it starts something neither one of them expected. Matt is in disbelief that Gina is so open to spending time with him. Gina finds out that Matt is far from the intimidating (and almost scary) man she avoided getting to know. She is grateful for his help and she surprises herself at just how fast she falls for him.
Gina may not know about Matt's past, but she does know about Gabe, the small boy who lives next door with his abusive guardian. Gina goes out of her way to look out for Gabe and to keep him safe the best she can. This is something that intrigues Matt and, I believe, makes her even more attractive to him. He eventually finds himself emotionally invested in the boy as well.
The attraction between Gina and Matt grows and grows until it's combustible!Read more ›
Now I am finished reading it.
ALL OF IT.
And I have to say...this might be one of the VERY best books I can EVER remember reading. I found myself in tears many times as I read Matt's struggle with feeling worthy of being loved and how he opened up under Gina's loving kindness and open heart.
I cannot recommend this story enough. It is just so, SO good that I cannot seem to find the words to really do it justice.
Not only did the title catch me but the story did as well. It was well written and a cute story of more than one needful heart.
Most of the tension in the novel stems from Matt's feelings of inadequacy. Severely abused as a child, Matt hasn't really experienced a relationship with a woman and he fears that he shares his father's propensity for violence. Meanwhile, Gina is involved with her young neighbor Gabe and her efforts to protect him from his emotionally abusive uncle puts in her a dangerous spot.
The author seamlessly switches from Gina and Matt's perspectives so the reader really gets to feel Gina's growing attraction and interest and Matt's overwhelming desire and tentative response to Gina's overtures. Gina is an appealing heroine. She is not depicted as extremely beautiful (I did love how Matt seems so enamored of her "frizzy" hair), but she is good-natured, kind and extremely patient and perceptive about Matt's feelings. Matt is an endearing conflicted hero; his huge crush on Gina, his shyness, and his lumberjack look were adorable! I also enjoyed how the relationship unfolded and developed mostly in the context of normal life where characters actually have to go to work and buy groceries.Read more ›
