I truly enjoyed this story. It’s got all the makings of a good romance: passion, angst, disappointment, and reconciliation. And, it has a lovable rescue dog. Both Damien and Sally are both affected by their past relationships. Sally suffers from emotional scaring while Damien’s complications are more of an encumbrance. In either case, both of their pasts have an effect on their present relationships. As a result, poor assumptions are made and feelings are hurt. The key to making a relationship work is being able to admit that one is wrong. Sometimes, one has to work at making amends. If done well, most things can be forgiven. On the other hand, a sexy dress with a slit up the thigh can drive a man to do something crazy – sometimes good or sometimes bad.
My absolute favorite line:
“You know she’s ‘the one’ when even your mother’s cooking doesn’t cut it.”
