About the Author
Raine is a hopeless romantic with a background in the fields of mental health and wedding planning...two areas that intersect far more than one would think. Her years working with children and young adults with emotional and behavioral challenges inspired her to create protagonists who overcome their own conflicts.When she isn't writing or glued to e-mail or social networking sites, Raine can usually be found vacationing with her husband and daughter on one of Florida's beautiful beaches or crossing the border to visit with her Canadian friends and relatives.

The story revolves around a baseball player who is trying to conceal an injury and the physical therapist who conceals her own issues and how lies and hidden truths keep them apart until....well, read it to find out.
I judge a book by how quickly the plot begins and continues at a pretty quick pace - this did. Characters I love to love and love to hate allows me to care what happens to them and keeps me reading. It was easy to care about Everly as her backstory unfolded and I cared about Cole and how he evolved. Jake the Grandpa and Wyatt the brother made me smile when they revealed their sweet good guy natures. Loving to hate Everly's rat fink Dad and Cole's fake friends rounded out my criteria for a good read.
The story was a little predictable but the twists and turns kept me interested and unfolded often enough to where I wanted to see how their story would be wrapped up.
A quick enjoyable read and an author who I am happy to find and read more of her work.
Complications abound, and most are based on real or perceived mental health issues. There's no shame, and Ms. Thomas has provided a nicely crafted vehicle for bringing these kinds of issues forward. It's a bit like Finding you in the Dark, which I loved, with less angst.
Although not a big part of this story, I liked that Cole's brother is in a stable, loving, gay relationship. I hope this doesn't dissuade people from buying this book. I wish more authors would include healthy gay characters.
Great story. Great writing. Thoroughly enjoyed.
Cue scary, dramatic music. Lol
I liked this book. The characters were great--Everly (despite the strange name) seemed "normal" and down-to-earth. Cole was totally hot, but also a nice guy and honest. They were funny together without being "zany" or over-the-top. They seemed real together. I liked that.
It did annoy me that the author chose to name Cole's sister, "Avery". Obviously, she had a love of this name "Everly" but why, out of all the names in the world, she had to name another character so closely in sound...anyway. It's confusing (and in this case, tongue twisting) to read such similar names over and over. But it's a minor point.
The only major flaw in this book were the villains. The action scenes were fairly well-written, but the plotting of these scenes was pretty predictable, IMO, and the villains were practically cackling with evil laughter, they were so obvious. I knew what was going on from the moment these people were introduced. Although (without giving anything away) there was one drunken character, toward the end, who said something which made me wonder how much that person knew...but it was never mentioned again.
In any case, that didn't keep me from enjoying the hero and heroine together. I was VERY glad toward the end that they didn't fall into any clichéd traps. They were very likable and it was easy to root for their HEA.
NO CLIFF-HANGERS EITHER! THANK YOU!!!
Not sure if I'd read it again but I would recommend it with the above notes.
After the last few disasters I've read, this was a welcome change.
I'd definitely read more by this author.

The story focuses on Everly, a trainee physiotherapist, and Cole- a sport star celebrity who wants to keep his injury secret from the media. The more time the two spend together, the more their feelings become more than professional.
This is a love story that builds gradually as the two spend more time together. Even though it is a gradual build, you are not left bored as the reader or shouting at your kindle. The characters are really likable and we get our nice HEA, with this being a standalone book and not part of a series that we wait forever to get the sequel.
in most books you get the common problem of trying to fit in a complex relationship in few chapters whilst attempting to make the reader feel emotionally invested ! in this book there is no problem - there is a realistic time frame and it doesn't appear the relationship was sped up for the purposes of fitting it into a book - I am genuinely surprised and pleasantly pleased! many praises for this book, a must read for those who love romance, banter, two strong characters and a compelling mystery element! one word summary: excellent!
Lovely story and connected from the beginning with the characters.
I hope there is more perhaps a cheeky novella to see how things are going.
Please give this book a chance you won't be disappointed. Loved it!!!!!
