When Roxi thinks she is witnessing a man committing suicide so she dives in to help him. As both these lost people try to maneuvers their way through their fears, insecurities and chemistry and attraction to each other, will they be able to find a future together?
A great book that you don’t want to miss.
John is not able to handle the death of his wife, so in a vain attempt to escape her memory, he moves to a cottage in Cape Cod. The peaceful and tranquil effect of the sea only adds to John’s mounting guilt and anxiety. In a fit of overwhelming grief, he decides to drown it inside the salty arms of the ocean. What starts out as a soul crushing and heart wrenching ordeal ends up as his reason for living and fighting for another day. It took the courageous and reckless action of Roxi, the local bar owner, to jolt sense into him. Her courage jumpstarted his heart back to life, and he longs to learn how to live again. Roxi has hidden away from the world because of the deep scars of her past. She begins to feel things that she never has when John is around, and once she works past her initial fear, she boldly decides that she no longer wants to hide. Her determination leads her to become the reason that John wants to watch as many sunrises and sunsets as possible. Will Roxi quickly pull back and renege her rash decision, or will John decide that he is too broken even for a woman who has such a huge heart and turns his world upside down?
Watching John and Roxi stumble through the pain of their past into the arms of each other made my heart leap for joy. The healing and comfort that only the other could provide was something worth taking a risk on. It was only when the opened their heart to the other did they realize the new world that had been opened up to them was filled with more love and joy then they could ever experience in a lifetime. I loved how patient and loving John was with Roxi when he found out what all she had lived through. He wanted nothing more than to protect, cherish, and love her like she deserved, and in turn Roxi was patient and caring as while John decided if he could give her his entire heart or if he would always be stuck in the past with this dead wife. The beginning of their new romance was simply beautiful, and I just couldn’t get enough of how well they complimented the other.
This is my first taste of Elle James, and I hope it will not be my last. I enjoyed every twist and turn in her beautifully flowing storyline, and I was completely mesmerized by her wonderful characters. It was such a pleasure to watch this breathtaking story take flight and bloom into the most spectacular array of vivid colors that drowned out the dark shades of black and grey. What a wonderful addition to the Remington World stories!
John Decker has been through so much. He lost his wife in an accident which is survived. He's alive but just barley living. He's withdrawn and just living day to day, minute to minute missing his wife. I could feel this poor guys pain. He is so lost, lonely, and really just not sure what to do with his life.
Roxi Lanier has been tough a lot too. She has lost more than any young lady should have to deal with. She has grown into a strong, independent woman that can kick any one's butt if she needs to protect herself. However she still has fears and is leery of some situations. I admired Roxi from the moment I met her and learned of her past. This woman has lost so much in her life but is doing her best to live a full life. She does have a dear friend in her life that was her Dad's best friend. He has played the great roll of father to Roxi since she was a teen.
When these two lost souls meet each in the local bar there is an attraction. Neither is sure of how to handle the attraction until they are brought together through a very dramatic moment. They both try to fight their feelings. However situations seem to keep bringing them together. I really enjoyed watching these two people find a friendship and then explore their attraction.
Elle James truly is one of my favorite authors. The drama and the hotness is in this book is very typical Elle James style. Elle does a fabulous job of writing dramatic scenes that always have me clinging to the edge of my seat wondering how the characters are going to get out of the situation they are in. There were certainly a few scenes that had me flipping pages a little faster wondering what could happen next.
Ms. James also has a talent for creating those really hot and steamy scenes that make my fingers tingle just a little bit with all that hotness that just tinges my fingers.
Over all I really did enjoy this book. It deals with some serious subjects and shows great examples of two people who think they are unable to love that there just might be a chance of love out there.
I was given the opportunity to read this great book so that I may share my thoughts with you. As always it has been my great pleasure to share my thoughts with you on Love on the Rocks.
