Jessica and her brother were abandoned by their parents in the US. Their parents literally left them here and went back to Croatia. Jessie went through the “system” and managed to reconnect with her older brother after high school. On top of her abandonment, she endured years of belittling verbal abuse from her father, and one incident where he became physical with her. Consequently, her dating radar is all messed up and she attracts the wrong kind of guys. But she’s determined to beat her father’s soundtrack in her head and work her way through college. Dating isn’t a priority for her.
Justin comes from a close-knit, white collar family. Handsome, athletic, smart – the world was his oyster to crack, but he didn’t want what his parents wanted and joined the military. A few months later he returned from Afghanistan missing two legs. His fiancé moved on and he turned inward. Finally, finally, he comes out of his shell to volunteer at a community center near his Manhattan home. After a year there, he gets hired on as a staff member. He doesn’t tell new people about his missing legs because of his prosthetics, but he still has horrible nightmares.
That’s where this story begins, at the Community Center where these two meet one summer. There’s an intricate dance of attraction, miscommunication, hurt feelings, and stonewalled secrets that drive the plot. I kept turning the pages and read this book in one sitting. Well done!

The love story between Jess and Justin was a sweet case of instalove, but how can you blame Jess. She was abandoned at an early age and was starving for someone to love her. With love comes trust, and Jess struggles with that part of the picture. Miscommunication , hurt feelings and secrets drive the story to a climax, but eventually Jess and Justin learn to move past their pain and begin to enjoy life together. The epilogue ties the story up nicely and leaves you smiling as you close your kindle.
I'm not usually a reader of romance, but this was a good one, and I read it in one sitting. Written in Jessica's first person point of view, Ms. Roman does a nice job of getting into Jessica's mindset, but she also does well exposing Justin's insecurities and emotions. I would have liked a little more development at the end between Jessica and Justin's mother, but it didn't detract from the growth of the two main characters and how they came together. I never doubted they would, but it was a joy reading how they got there. Good book.
Jessica and Justin are both young lovers who have issues to deal with on their own without adding the problems associated with a romance. Jessica is a college student working hard to put herself through school on her own. Justin is a former Navy medic who lost both legs in an IUD explosion in Afghanistan and is trying to learn his own self worth. Both have issues with their own image of who they are and what they can accomplish. Their romance is made even sweeter when they learned to love themselves.
