I really enjoyed this book. The writing just drew me into Jack and Faith's lives.

There's an old legend about apartment 1G is that if you see the lady in the mirror, your life will change, either your greatest wish or your worst fear will come true.

Jack and his brother Eric lived in 1G 25 years earlier. After an argument with Jack, Eric commits suicide. Jack runs away feeling guilty and becomes a war zone reporter. Twenty five years later, Jack still struggles with guilt and the burden of all the atrocities he's witnessed as a reporter. He finally breaks down during a rather routine assignment in Haiti and decides to come back to LA to figure out what he wants to do.

Faith is staying temporarily with Sammi-Jo. Sammi-Jo is blonde, vivacious and brilliant. Faith is quiet, shy and struggling with years of guilt that came from a father who did not feel that women were supposed to do anything more than take care of men's physical needs. The two opposites are best friends from small town Georgia. Though Sammi-Jo exudes confidence and Faith's appearances screams for protection and make her seem fragile.

Faith decides after her mother dies to break away from her father and become what she wants. She tells Jack, "All my life, other people have been making my decisions for me, I've been told because I was born female, I'm weak and helpless and don't know my own mind. That I can't be trusted to do the right thing or to know what's best for me. Well, I'm not weak and I'm not helpless. Not anymore. I make my own decisions now. And if they're the wrong decisions, well, they're still my decisions. I refuse to let anyone try to tell me what I want or need, and I don't want to be protected from myself.

She's an author who understands how to write a romance with three dimensional women who want to completely love a man but remain strong women. Her sex scenes are steamy, too, and that's always fun!

This is a nice love story. It was a little sappy sometimes, but a good read all the same. I enjoyed it. I don't like reviews that give away too much, so I apologize for being vague. It was a good story!

Lovers and Strangers
The Hollywood Nights Series Book 1

Jack Shannon, early 40's world reporter heads back to LA's ,Wilshire Arms, 25 years after the tragic death of his brother there. Jack returns hoping to answer the questions surrounding the suicide of his brother and appease his conscience after taking personal blame for the argument that led up to his brother committing suicide all those years ago. LA is where he meets 24 year old Faith McCroy, newly relocated from Georgia. Faith fled Georgia leaving an overly controlling father to find freedom, peace and happiness. This is a shorter story detailing the ups and downs of their relationship where both come with emotional baggage. Can they find a way to overcome their past disappointments and forage a new life together? Is it meant to be or only a moment in time? Will a 18 year age difference be a factor?

Review: I enjoyed the detailing surrounding the characters personalities. Its the story of love, pain, sympathy and compassion that every good book needs. Details how two people can find trust and reclaim passion after tragedy in their own lives. Overall an easy adult read, mild sexual content.

I love Candace's books, and this one was, as I expected, a great indulgence for my Sunday afternoon. The story turns preconceptions on their ear regarding vulnerability and strength. Two unexpected characters turn into lovers with a wonderfully sweet, unexpected twist. I love all of her books, but this story was particularly charming...while still having all the edgy romance and plot turns you would expect from this great romance writer.

You like romance and drama? This book is just for you! Cliché and enjoyable, older man meeting innocent young fiery and strong woman, believing in God. They both clean each other's conscience, letting go of the guilt of old secrets and perceived wrong-doings. Redemption couldn't have sounded more sexy and positive!
Light read, any day, any time...

I'm very wary of books that say Part One because I'm tired of books in series that don't really get going until the second book, which I never take the time to read anyway if the first one wasn't interesting. This book works well as a standalone, sweet romance story but it also made me want to read the next installment!I enjoyed the main characters, and found the romance sweet and steamy at the same time. There were some unanswered questions, including a ghost story that was sort of suggested but not really expanded upon. I would have liked some more backstory on that, but maybe that's in the next one? Overall, an enjoyable read.

Sometimes a book is just right. At home sick in bed I wanted a light read but still a good and meaningful storyline. And I got it with this book.

Jack Shannon is a cynic man who has carried around a huge burden of guilt for over 25 years since his big brother committed suicide. Everybody he has ever loved has died so he has chosen a lonely existences as a war correspondent. After seeing all the hotspots, or hell holes as Jack calls them, he one day was fed up, had a break down and came home. Now he is on leave from the newspaper and are trying to re-write the script he and his brother did 25 years ago.
One afternoon at his favourite bar he sees a new waitress getting unwanted attention by a customer and helps her. When he meets her eyes the world as Jack used to know it starts to shift.

Fatih McCray has moved from her super conservative Christian father to find her own life. She wants to be strong and earn enough money to fulfil her dream. When the attractive man helps her at the bar she knows she shouldn't be angry with him but she is. Angry that he saw her being week.
But they meet again. And Faith makes up her mind to grab the passion she feels for Jack. And during a fantastic scene she stands up for her choice and waits for Jack to make up his mind.
There is also a lovely scene when Faith dances for the first time. That a strong arm around you can feel constricting or passionate depending on who you are dancing with.

The book has quite a few of those scenes and I love them all. They are well written, even in the words Jack and Faith use I can hear the difference between them, difference in age (he 43, she 25), difference in experience. But also the commitment, especially from Faith, to bridge the gap.
