After a broken love affair, Amanda Scott grasped at one straw after another, until finally she ended up in a line waiting to have the latest popular self-help expert autograph his book. Was it fate that placed Jordan Richards beside her, or h her life suddenly taken a turn better? Amanda didn't dare ask.

Jordan was something special. With each tender touch and sizzling kiss, Amanda fell more deeply in love. But when her lover and Jordan's two small daughters showed up, Amanda and Jordan passion for each other was challenged in ways neither had anticipated ....

Suddenly, risking all for love was the most daring move of all.

My rating:

The premise: two idiots fall in love and make a mess out of it.

That’s pretty much all I could say on the matter.

She was an idiot because she thought her ex was dying, promised him they would try again (and he was married!), and then didn’t have the guts to tell her present guy, because she was afraid of losing him. She did anyway once he found out (and not from her, mind you).
He was an idiot...For jumping to conclusions, for fearing of falling in love again (his wife died in an accident three years prior)...At least he didn’t crawl coming back when he started to miss her. That would’ve been the last straw, since she was the one who was most wrong.

It wasn’t bad—the parts when these two adults didn’t act like idiotic teenagers—but the rest was just pathetic.
