Raven a lawyer unhappy with the law firm she is working with leaves her job to work in an ice-cream parlour. Her well-meaning Aunt Dottie who took Raven in when she was orphaned at 6. Dottie convinces psychologist Lucas Lusk to talk to Raven without her knowing that Dottie sent him.
Lucas sent to Raven to see if she has lost her mind and to try and talk her into going back to practice law. Lucas may find that he has gotten into more than he expected.
Lucas is a modern day “hero” a knight in shining armour his whole life is about helping people and he does not consider himself a hero at all the modesty is refreshing and very endearing.
Not only was there one twist in this book but there were two. I had a feeling that something was going to happen but the way it played out was not what I was expecting. I was kept turning the pages to find out how the twists would be resolved.
Raven and Lucas are not looking for love as they both have been hurt in the past. I have a feeling that love may find them. Betrayal and hurt may be too much for Raven to overcome to get to her happy ever after. This makes a great read for any romance lover, I highly recommend this book to the romance lovers or to anyone that enjoys a good read.
Just about anyone can relate to Raven. She's an over-stressed woman who just wants to make a change. I'm sure we've all felt that way, that's why we escape reality in books. However, Raven takes it even further by making a quick decision and quit her job, the root of most of her stress. It just wasn't what she wanted anymore.
Her Aunt Dottie is such a sweet woman. Always there to support her niece. Everything she did, she did out of concern for Raven's well-being. Even if her actions weren't necessarily ethical, she had good intentions.
Then there was Lucas...swoon... You could tell he was attracted to Raven from the beginning. Dottie's concern might have originally brought them together, it was his attraction to her that kept him coming back.
I just knew why they originally met was going to blow up in his face eventually. I kept reading to get to that moment and to see if they could get past it. There was a plot twist that I was definitely not expecting. Just wait until you get to that point.
Overall, I found this to be a very enjoyable book.
The story goes through Raven leaving her career as an attorney and working at an ice cream shop. Due to her interfering Aunt, Raven meets Lucas and over time, the two fall in love. As the story progresses, much time passes in their relationship with the reader getting blips of them at various points in time. While this is happening, there is a side story going on with Lucas and one of his patients. Both stories come to a climax with Raven finding out about her Aunt's interference and Lucas learning who his disturbed patient is. At this point, the two stories become intertwined to the end.
As I said, this is a very sweet story with two nice career oriented main characters. They seem to fit well together. At times, I felt a little disjointed from the book but other than that, I enjoyed it. If you are looking for nice romance with a little bit of suspense, you will enjoy this book.
Raven is not happy with her job as a lawyer and quits it, taking a job in an ice-cream shop instead. I connected with Raven's quest for a more fulfilling job especially in the sometimes back-stabbing work environments of the corporate world. But her actions were quite drastic and came to be construed as some kind of a breakdown by her Aunt Dottie who hired Lucas to investigate without letting on that he's been hired by her. Lucas is a sweet and kind man and really enjoys helping others. A really worthy hero in my book.
The two of them are not looking to fall in love but sometimes love meets you unexpectedly. Of course, the situation the two of them are thrown into means that there's going to be a little disappointment for Raven. Can she forgive and let love win?
A really heart-warming read with endearing characters. Happy to recommend it.
