Our first meeting with Camille finds her working as a barmaid, in an attempt to help pay her bills as she completes her studies. Quickly, we gain the impression of a gentle, decent young woman, but one who has little sense of her own worth. Her family life has been lacking in security – her father is an alcoholic; her mother, a woman who appears to find it hard to show emotion.
Camille is a beautiful young woman and attracts the attention of business man, Rick Pantanelli. The attraction is mutual and a relationship develops between them. However, is this a match made in heaven? Time and circumstances will tell. To say more about the plot would spoil the story for other readers, so I shall leave it there!
What I really enjoyed about this novel was the way in which Camille’s self-confidence grew, alongside her belief that she was worth knowing and had a purpose in life. She had always worked hard, but had lacked the support and time to nurture her sense of self. This was a rocky road for her to travel, and it held my interest throughout. I was also interested in Rick’s character – a successful man, but not very likeable, in my opinion.
I have to admit that I’m not a great fan of romance novels, but I did enjoy this one and look forward to reading the promised follow-up.

Camille is a broken woman who doesn't expect much from her life. She doesn't believe she deserves much either. As the child of a cold mother and an alcoholic father, Camille immerses herself in her studies at university. She becomes the mistress of a man who is passionate and generous, but not very open to allowing her into his life. During her internship, she meets Joe. Joe is warm and gentle. Joe understands her fears for her father's future, because he has watched his own brother also struggle with alcoholism. Joe offers stability, protection, and understanding. Which is the life she dreams of having?
This story approaches some deep subjects: alcoholism, the naiveté of youth, and the romanticizing of being a mistress. All were approached delicately and with compassion - very well done in my humble opinion.
I loved watching Camille realize her own strength. I won't say which man she chose, but I hope Ms. Livingston chooses to do another book that allows for a Happily Ever After for the one not chosen.
Kim, you keep writing, and I'll keep reading. You have one devoted fan here.
