Returning calls is Elliot's responsibility, but he’s adamant about not working for a snooty rich woman, especially since she wants to take his late grandmother's home full of his best childhood memories and make it unrecognizable. The contractor/customer relationship between Elliot and Julia is so far beyond starting off on the wrong foot, and sparks between the two fly immediately. But it’s not long before Elliot realizes how wrong his first impression is and that he's actually found a kindred spirit in Julia. Instead of being put off by her unique quirks, he sees deeper to the wounded little girl who was never wanted and never fit in. He quickly comes to admire her brilliance, her work ethic, and her strength as he learns about all she has accomplished and overcome. For the first time in her life, someone sees beyond the protective wall Julia has used to survive and appreciates all of her complex, fascinating layers.
This one had me teary eyed so many times. For the little boy whose parents abandoned him yet, through a benevolent fate, landed in a family who showed him unconditional love and acceptance. For the little girl raised by cold, selfish, affluent, socialite grandparents who never saw beyond her unique differences to give her a moment of love and acceptance. For the two adults who struggled to find themselves and somehow managed to find that one person, the other half of their heart, who would accept and love them with every part of their being.
It’s a rare occurrence that an author creates a main character with as many peculiarities and deficiencies as Julia, but it's hugely fulfilling to fall in love with those shortcomings and see the character develop and grow and receive the love and acceptance she’s so long been denied but so richly deserves. This author does an extraordinary job with Julia's character, handling her so preciously and carefully that this book easily goes in my list of top five books for the year. Along with the thrill and joy of watching Julia blossom and come into her own is the beautiful message that will breathe new life into even the most jaded heart. Everyone deserves to be loved, human frailties and all, and there is that one special person for each of us, ready to offer that kind of love.
Rose is a new author for me, and my heart is doing a happy dance to have found her! This book is really terrific, and now I’m hooked. I’ve seen book reviews that say, “This book is everything,” a I’ve wondered about the reviewer's inability to articulate the feelings the book evokes. With this book, I definitely understand, because this book is everything. This romance is exquisitely beautiful with such depth of emotion that the reader can’t help experience every thought and feeling the characters experience but also feel so much for these magnificently flawed, eternally endearing characters. Lest you think this is all a rip-your-heart-out-and-leave-you-hemorrhaging type of book, that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Rose had me laughing out loud from the first pages of the book and included plenty of sweet and tender and hot and steamy, and tossed in a little frustrating and awkward for good measure. She struck the perfect balance between highs and lows, heartbreak and happiness, emptiness and contentment and loneliness and belonging. Don’t miss this beautifully heartwarming, emotionally evocative, supremely satisfying, extraordinary read. Your romantic heart will thank you.

Elliot and Julia are just lovely. Yes, there are fun, sexy times, but what stands out are the scenes of quiet, building intimacy. You can believe in the power of their relationship to withstand Julia’s complications (which are not magically resolved by the HEA).
Not quite 5* because I so wanted a house to fall on Julia’s grandmother.
Overall it was well written, well developed and I thoroughly enjoyed both the characters and the storyline. The plot has depth and dimension. And sexy, wow, Rose knows how to write sex scenes! The only drawback was the editing errors.
I don’t want to say too much because the way the story developed was important and I don’t want to reveal anything before it’s time. But with that said, Julia Hawkins was gorgeous and quirky. Elliot Williams was tall, dark and broody. And although polar opposites, they meshed well together. They each had some baggage that was slowly but effectively unraveled at just the right time. And I loved how Elliott treated Julia. Although I couldn’t relate on a personal level with Julia, I did relate and I enjoyed her progression.
I also enjoyed the secondary characters - of course the brothers Cole and Tucker, but also Kelsey and Bram. Hopefully they’ll all get there own stories. I’m not sure where Rose will take us next, regardless, I’m all in and can’t wait. In the meantime, I’ll have to explore some of Rose’s other works.
Elliot is beyond angry. He wanted to buy his grandma's house only to bc was outbid so high that he lost it. Now the new owner wants to hire his company, no way is he going to do it. So he thinks. Now tall dark and surely has to eat his words.
So starts a fascinating tale of two like minded souls coming together.
I found this book encapsulating me in it's honest yet romantically fantastic story. Kudos to the author for describing so realistically someone who was undiagnosed to be on the SPECTRUM as well as a survivor of the child Foster Care system. Both come with their own challenges, yet it is told with respect and caring. I can't wait to read more by this author.
Julia has issues. Raised in a toxic environment, she somehow pulls herself up to succeed as a app creator and coding genius. As a result of her upbringing, she has trust issues, panic attacks, and an eating disorder. She also suffers from night terrors that happen in the morning. She is also loyal, committed, protective, and a woman of few words. She wears her expensive garments like armor.
First these two clash, then slowly begin to understand each other, and of course can't stop their mutual attraction. She is slow to trust but gradually reaches out for the help she needs to heal. This story is an affirmation in faith, in others as well as in self. This isn't just a romance but also a story of self-discovery and healing. Highly recommended.

Julia’s story was heartbreaking but Elliot was just the man for her, with his family. So tender and yet full of angst and then a man who lets things evolve slowly so that you take things at your pace. Brilliant and I’m gutted it’s finished and waiting for the next brother please.
