Book Description

Jeff finally has his life back on track after deferring his dreams so he could be there for his family when they were stuck with a health crisis. As a lifeguard and a law student, he is solely focused on graduating at the top of his class and passing the bar exam so that he can help his mom and little sister.

In a blink of an eye, all of that changes when a beautiful redhead rescues a little boy right under Jeff’s nose while he’s lifeguarding and challenges everything he thought he wanted from the world.

Kiera, a former swimmer turned social worker is distraction he never expected to encounter. She is smart, outgoing, witty, and vivacious and he is drawn to her more than he could have ever imagined.

Unfortunately however, both Jeff and Kiera come with strings attached. . .

About the Author

About the Author:I became a writer so that I could write stories where love matters and differences don't. 

 
I have been lucky enough to live my own version of a romance novel. I married the guy who kissed me at summer camp. He told me on the night we met that he was going to marry me and be the father of my children. Eventually I stopped giggling when he said it, and we just celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. We have two children. The oldest, is in medical school, and the youngest is still in elementary school.
 
Presently, I'm a stay at home mom and I am pro bono legal counsel for a domestic violence shelter. However, I have also worked as a Civil Rights Attorney and diversity advocate. I spent several years working for various social service agencies before becoming an attorney.
 
In my spare time, I love to cook, decorate cakes and, of course, obsessively compulsively read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Manna from Heaven for the Hopeless Romantic!!!! June 4, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I love romance. I love humor. But I demand a plot. But I hate sappy & I hate erotica. This book has the perfect blend of romance, humor & depth. But it's clean & tastefully written. It has a very identifiable plot and good depth of characters. The story flows nicely as well.

My complaint? Only one. I can't find anymore books by her. So if you read this, Ms. Mary Crawford, get cracking! I want more!

3.0 out of 5 stars A 'nice' Romance June 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
When I saw this on the top 100 free books yesterday I recognised the title. It took me a while to work out where from and then I remembered it was on a Goodreads list of books where 'hero/heroine has a disability'. I have read a few romances with that theme, so I was interested to read this one.

Kiera is a paraplegic (from mid torso down to her toes). It was sad how she became a paraplegic but she hasn't let it get her down. She meets Jeff and they are instantly attracted to each other.

Now this was not really my cup of tea but that doesn't mean others won't love it. For me, it was all just a bit too 'nice'. It's a 'clean' romance. There are no real sex scenes, no swearing, no angst. Jeff is a lovely romantic nice person and Kiera is really nice. Note my theme of 'nice'!

I think this is the authors debut novel and she didn't do a bad job however, she needs to work on her 'male' voice as Jeff at times sounded too female. If you like 'clean' romances then this is the book for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Contemporary Romance June 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There's just something about a guy who sacrifices pretty much everything for his one true love. Jeff had a specific plan for his life. He had goals and was working to fulfill them. But then he met Kiera. I would've loved him alone for the way he instantly fell for her. Guys who instantly tumble for their one-true love are just so hot. So, that was sigh-worthy right there. But then he went and rearranged his entire life for her, letting go of big job opportunities to avoid conflict of interest, taking on two children at the drop of a hat...and he was just so cool about all of it. He's what the ideal book boyfriend is all about.

And then there's Kiera. This is the kind of woman I want to be. She doesn't let any obstacle keep her from being "her." She overcomes so much and does it with style and finesse, making every hurdle in her path look simple and no big deal. Her capacity for love is over flowering. Just ask the two little girls she saves. And her curse words are priceless!

Here's a story about a couple who experiences their ups and downs but still manages to triumph through it and come out with a satisfying happily ever after. I could read this type of romance until the stars fell from the sky!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet, sassy but not over the top June 8, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Loved this book! I love a good romance and this is one for the ages. If you like your romance a little more "real" and not so hard core then this is the book for you. Perfect for those just getting into romance novels.

Disclaimer: I am not a fan of the romance genre. At. All. This novel may make a romantic out of me yet!

This novel will have even skeptics believing in love at first sight. What an amazing set of characters! Best of all, their unique characteristics that set them apart make their love story all the more compelling. They have a different set of challenges to overcome from the average romance character in order to foster their budding romance, and it entices every step of the way. Such a great example that those from all walks of life make a very exhilarating story.

5.0 out of 5 stars A refreshing take on a romance novel. June 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This is not your mama's romance novel. Her characters are unique as is the story. It brings to light to an issue that people just don't like to talk about but leaves you happy and hopeful. This is a great book and I am eagerly waiting Mrs. Crawford's encore.

5.0 out of 5 stars A sweet and lovely story June 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was drawn to this book by the beautiful cover. Once I started reading, I could not put it down. I loved Kiera and Jeff and their story of falling in love, and creating a life together. Their "differences" made them uniquely beautiful and they were handled with delicate realism that was very captivating to me. I liked how their was no artifice or game playing, just pure honesty and candor between them. I found myself tearful in a few places, and then joyful in many others.

I hope this is the first of many books I will read by Mary Crawford and I wouldn't mind reading more about Jeff and Kiera, if a second book is in the works.
