I loved the way that this book was written. It grabbed my attention from the very beginning and never let go. The story flowed well and kept me entertained the entire time. Would definitely recommend if you want a feel good romance.
I received this book free of charge in exchange for my honest review.
I picked this up as a freebie on Amazon, so I can't complain about money spent.
Diana is a wrong woman, whose husband of six years dies in an car accident with his latest mistress after physically assulating Diana and telling her it is over since her money has run out. No, I'm not making up the beginning. It is... a little over the top villainy. At first it seemed that Diana would be a strong character and able to bounce back, but quite soon after the funeral when Devlan, her step-brother in law, shows up the spine disappears.
The start of their relationship is founded on miscommunication. Devlan came out because Hannah, Diana's daughter, is now his heirress and he wanted to check up on her and offer support. But does he spell that out clearly for Diana? No, he's stand-offish, oblique and specifically questions Diana's abilities as a mother. But he's OH SO SEXY that Diana is flustered. Then he quietly takes care of all her debts as a show of goodwill and doesn't tell her so she's forced to move out from her house w/o knowing there is a stalker benefactor who then ignores her for months until Hannah inexplicably (other than to force the leads together) runs in front of a car and is in serious trauma.
Devlan races from California to Denver to aid his weeping Diana (who again was doing JUST FINE on her own until Devlan came along again) and take care of all the bills.Read more ›
I mostly read romance because I write romance. Sometimes after I finish one I want that piece of my life back. This one charmed me from beginning to end. Collette Scott writes about real people. The book explores the consequences of our assumption-making. It also makes an excellent point about how many people we can affect or hurt with the best of intentions. There are so many fun and interesting secondary characters in the book.
Diana, the main character, starts the story as a wronged woman. The fate of her husband was a perfect "let the punishment fit the crime" irony. The title character, their daughter Hannah, unwittingly brings into Diana's life her late husband's stepbrother, Devlan, who has made his niece his sole heir. Devlan's rich, handsome, brilliant, successful, and yet can't manage to communicate clearly to the one person in the world who matters most. It's not Hannah. She loves, trusts, and relies on him with all the sweet innocence of a child in spite of his social blunders.
Diana is deeply wounded after six years of marriage to the wrong brother. She has listened to lies, tried to trust, and felt the pain of betrayal too long. Devlan, experienced with business, celebrity and all the rest of life, is too inexperienced with "real" women to win her trust. Diana is a runner, and how and why she runs from Devlan is pretty stunning. How and why he finally decides it's time to chase her, and how that turns out is also stunning.
When Hannah's life is in jeopardy, Diana questions the true intentions of Devlan Doyle and why he is so willing to come to their rescue. A man of power, wealth and determination, Devlan takes matters in his own hands and shows Diana and Hannah what a wonderful new life they could have with him. But is it too much for Diana? As the press and celebrity gossip take its toll on their new relationship, Diana finds her self not questioning if she will ever love again, but instead if she deserves Devlan's love that once came so easily.
When Forever Sunshine grabbed by heart, I couldn't wait to read something... anything else from Collette Scott. Her novels flow naturally, grabbing your attention from first page to lasts. She builds up her romances with growing suspense that will tease you with ever turn of the page. Try and put it down once you start reading... I dare you... it's almost impossible.

A story of a woman who has no faith in men due to a bad situation. It goes on to show that trust and love can be found again. A great story line.Published 2 months ago by TJ McG
