The Broken Path-A Joyfully Recommended Title!
on September 3, 2007
Autumn has recently moved back to her hometown after escaping an abusive marriage. She vows that never again will she place herself or her daughter in the position to have that happen again to them. But when she meets Ethan Searle at church one Sunday morning, her thoughts about men quickly change from disgust to desire. Even though his legs were severely injured in an accident and he is forced to wear braces, it's extremely easy to look past that and see the raw masculinity exuding from him. But why is it that everything she says seems to anger him?
Ethan can still remember what Autumn looked like all those years ago when he saw her in the hospital after one of her husband's attacks on her. Now that she's free of him and back home, Ethan is still just as enthralled by her as he ever was. But he knows Autumn doesn't feel the same. Instead of looking at who he is, she only sees his mangled legs and braces. Is there anything he can do to make her look past that?
I absolutely adored The Broken Path. I was obsessed with finishing it from the moment I read the first chapter. I was instantly hooked! The characters were extremely well-drawn and I was able to connect with both of them almost instantaneously. And Ethan's character, oh man. I've always had a soft spot for the underdog, but even though Ethan was the underdog, so to speak, with his handicap, Ms. Checketts still managed to make him sexy as hell. Where can I get me one of him? Autumn's daughter is absolutely adorable and her character completely rounds out the story, as well as the secondary story of Autumn's mother and her romantic interests. This is with a doubt a Recommended Read!
