The Scottish tycoon and philanthropist lives with his guilt, and another consequence: Ava was pregnant with his child the night of the accident. Ever since that night, Malcom has raised Jack as a single father.
But Ava is stronger now, and Jack wants his mommy to come home. Malcolm has never stopped wanting her and he’s determined to do whatever it takes to claim Ava—with or without her consent.
OMG...this book. It's short on pages, but is REALLY not short on story. This is an incredibly emotional and heartbreaking story. My heart stayed clenched and hurt through the entire book. Poor Ava...I just wanted to bundle her up and force Colm to love her.
3 years ago, Ava suffered a horrific traumatic brain injury when her taxi was hit. She was recovering. She was, but she still had horrible issues with short term memory. Something happened and she was out shopping with her son and forgot him...walked away from him and spent 12 hours lost herself. It WASN'T her fault. She never should have been left alone with him, but after so many hours terrified, Colm reacted badly and said things he shouldn't have said. Trauma and stress makes her condition so much worse. The events of that day set her back so much farther.
Since then, she's stayed away from Colm and her little boy...for their safety. She doesn't trust herself anymore...and she's so, so alone. She doesn't realize that Colm watches over her in every way that he can, just waiting for her to decide to come back to him. But it's been a year. No one makes Colm wait and his patience is gone.
Seriously, there is so much truly deep emotion and hurt in this story. I loved the way the author wrote it. There are times when a deeply angsty book is just perfect. This is one of the best I've ever read. I loved it and hope to re-read it over and over and over again.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
