In Cutters, Libby has kept Aiden out of her life after becoming pregnant and Aiden lets her go, but in Binding Arbitration, Libby needs Aiden's DNA to save their son's diseased life. Aiden has never been able to forget Libby, but is still mad at her for disappearing on him and never revealing that she kept their baby. Now that she is back in his life, he realizes there has never been anyone else for him but her, but convincing her of that seems impossible.
There is so much to this story: the profound quotes at the beginning of each chapter, the cycle of fathers abandoning their children, forgiveness and blame, the disease of leukemia, family expectations, death and anger, angels and God, all coming together to define LOVE. It speaks to the reader on so many different levels and shouts at you to re-evaluate your own life and relationships.
I must confess, though, that as a mother of a six year old myself, I could not bring myself to do more than skim many of the chapters in the end. As I have said before, I read to experience other's happiness and adventure and avoid stories that make me cry, and this story was a little too close to my own life for comfort. The product description does advise that Libby's son has leukemia and the disease is dealt with in a knowledgeable and sensitive way, but it is still a disease that ravages a (small) person's body and I guess I didn't think it was going to be a central theme of the story like it was. So, what I am saying is "This story will make you cry!"
Elizabeth Marx's gritty writing was a pleasant surprise to me in Cutter's Vs Jocks and a powerful depiction of love and forgiveness in Binding Arbitration. I would love to read Olivia and Avery's story or what happened with Tony and Evita(cough Mrs. Marx, cough).
Marx's works include profanity and sex and there are some editing problems such as missing words, misspelled words and incorrect words such as "it" for "is". I do not take off stars for bad editing, just warning those who are OCD about this.

The characters came alive for me, I felt their emotions. Some I wanted to hate and do bodily harm or just smack real hard. l liked how the author wrote about the children; a little sassy but respectful. I cried at the sad parts and laughed out loud at the funny parts.
I recommend this book, 'a must read'.
Libby Tucker is a criminal lawyer and is raising her young son alone. She will go to any lengths to save her son who has been diagnosed with Leukemia. If that includes contacting the boy's father who abandoned her and their unborn child, broke her young heart, and signed away all legal rights to his son, so be it. Anything for her son, the love of her life.
Aidan Palowski is a professional baseball player and the man who abandoned a pregnant Libby after their college graduation. He is a major man-whore deluxe ~ golden boy who has more money than he knows what to do with. It is a sweet love story but I don't think I could have taken him back after his initial abandonment and then all the women he went through. For crying out loud...there were websites devoted to the women he had been intimate with including pictures and what position was his favorite with each particular woman. Just click on the woman's picture and she would tell you the favored position. I thought that was somewhat gag-gy.
Poor Libby had to endure the humiliation of running into his old sex buddies when they went out and watch as pictures surfaced in the rag mags of up close photos of him doing his ex-fiance. He was unaware that he had been photographed and filmed without his permission. It made me a bit nauseous with the huge number of women he went through.
This is an intense, emotional read so have your tissues at the ready.
The only downside is that I felt the author didn't require enough groveling from Aidan. He didn't pay enough for his actions and their consequences.
The quotes starting off each chapter were great and I actually had read of some in the past.This story affected me in ways I could not believe Ms Marx's characters had me worried at times with some of the situations encountered by Aiden and Libby and that is where the love.humor.sadness,anger come into play. I've never read and probably never will read such a story again. WARNING: tissue needed and lots of it.Please read this, you will love,LOVE IT.
