Sometimes the end is also the beginning. A poignant love story.

A Woman's Worth by Chicki Brown is the first novel in a series of five, centering around the Stafford Brothers. This initial book follows a love story of Marc Stafford and Gianne Marvray.
Marc considers himself the black sheep of his family due to his father's disappointment in him. His father is a doctor and so are most of his brothers, but Marc made a decision not to take that path, but follow his own road. He is a trainer that owns a workout center in Las Vegas; and he also lives a vegan life, which he teaches others about, and helps them to heal naturally.
Gianne is a patient of Marc's father, who has suffered through chemo-therapy, and finally receives a diagnosis that her cancer is in remission. So is her relationship with her ex-fiance; he left her when he found out she had cancer. In Gianne's mind there is no way she'll ever allow herself to love a man that deeply again.
One evening at a dinner party in Atlanta, Marc's hometown, he and Gianne look at one another from across the room and their lives are not the same from then on.
This book was well written. Some of the details of what they were eating was too extensive, and I found myself skipping paragraphs, however, other than that, it flowed great. I like that pace of the love affair, and how the two grew to know one another over time. the dynamics of the Stafford family pulled me in too. I have already purchased the Kindle version of book 2 in the series and can't wait to read more about them.
