Other Review: 5 stars: beautiful heart-warming story and wonderful characters that leap off the page. Fabulous story.

This is a touching story of a second chance at love. Life can get in the way of happiness sometimes, fears even more so. Sometimes you can find the strength to get beyond those fears and stay focused on what is most important: a soul-deep love. Sometimes you don’t.

Belle works long hours as a dedicated trauma surgeon. Her husband understood and accepted that, working hard at his own job of being a firefighter. Like many couples they began arguing, but then things seem to mount between them. Until one day she told Lucas she wanted a divorce. Heartbroken but loving her enough to let her go, he agreed. Yet neither had forgotten how much they loved one another, neither had moved on. Then an emergency family meeting draws them unexpectedly together again. Can they find a way to be happy again? Or will they hold to the divorce agreement?

The characters were well-developed and the reader can easily feel the emotional struggles they experienced. The internal conflicts are based on believable external issues and handled well. Overall this is a great story of how impossible it is to give up on a special love. And I loved this hero.
