Logan is Rachels brothers business contact. He is immediately drawn to Rachel but he doesn't know about her past. Logan wants the whole package.. the wife the kids and the white picket fence. He wants this with Rachel. She can't give him what he wants. When he finds out things don't go well and a lot of things happen that change the course of their lives forever. Rachel has a hugely supportive family who are there for her through everything.
I felt distraught when it was revealed what happened to Rachel, I actually cried! Then when she had her happy ever after threatened I was heartbroken for her. Although this is a shorter story it will draw you in from start to finish.. You may laugh in some parts because Rachel does have a sense of humour but, you will also feel emotional. The things that happened to her do happen in real life to women all over the world and not all of them survive.
I feel like Casey Clipper has done a lot of research to be able to tell this story and to be able to pack so much information and emotion into a novella sized book. I think she has captured not just the detail and emotion of the main characters Rachel and Logan, but also of Rachels family, her father and brothers and all the struggles and emotions they have gone through watching Rachel go to hell and back. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a well told emotional, heart wrenching story filled with love, support and hope. You won't want to put it down until the end and you will most likely need tissues and chocolate while your reading!
SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS
Rachel had a permanent brain injury as a result of being raped and beaten by an ex-boyfriend and his friends. Another lasting physical impact was that she is unable to have children. She was emotionally damaged as well. Afraid of getting hurt by other men, she only has one night stands until she met Logan. Logan wants her but wants a wife and child as well. They are together for awhile when Rachel has an emotional breakdown. Logan is told by her brothers as to what happened to her and with that finds out she cannot have children. Rachael returns home to get help. Shortly afterwards because he is upset that Rachel cannot have biological children he has unprotected sex with his secretary. She gets pregnant. He does not tell Rachel but continues to lead her on, telling that he loves her and wants to be with her when she is well. She tells him that she loves him too. When Rachel expresses a desire to see him, he keeps putting her off, stating that he has to get his life together. Rachel is upset and confused as to why he does not want to see her. She goes to visit him and finds him and his pregnant secretary together. Rachel never slept with anyone else after meeting Logan. She stayed faithful to him. Conveniently his secretary is killed and no longer in his life. For the present, Logan has everything that he wants. Rachel as his wife and his biological child. However, Rachel will never be well and may eventually develop Alzheimers. I have strong doubts that Logan will support her if she does. He will probably dump her in a nursing home or home with her family and find someone new to take care of his son and have more children with.
Loved it all.. What a wonderful HEA!
