Sydney Westbrook has had enough.
After a fight with her abusive ex-boyfriend leaves her in the hospital once again, she knows it’s time for a change. Just out of college, Sydney decides to accept a position as a live-in nurse. But leaving the comfort of Atlanta and the support of her small circle of friends is hard to do. And when she meets her ailing, stubborn client, Sydney second guesses all of her choices.
A southern family with a social status to maintain, the McNamara’s think very little of Sydney, especially since she reminds Mrs. McNamara so much of the daughter-in-law she never accepted. But when Sydney encounters Quinn, the defiant grandson, her views of the family begin to change. And her heart begins to heal the hole left behind by the abuse.
Sydney and Quinn may have little time together, but they make the most out of it. A public display of their relationship is short-lived when Sydney learns just how far her client will go to save her family’s namesake. And when Sydney’s past suddenly rips into her new world, her happiness with Quinn threatens to come to an end.
But truth and friendship will help Sydney finally live the life she’s chosen while loving the one she chose.


I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about this book after reading quite a lot of dark fiction recently I was a little bit burnt out but despite the darker tones at the beginning of this story it wasn't as dark as I had expected which made it a refreshing read

The author was very clever with her character building in that she didn't over egg it! There's just enough to build a feeling around each character but not so much it distracts from the main theme of the story

It is a fast paced read with plenty of suspense and a whole dose of romance! I think once you've started you will struggle to put it down and as I've said many times before, for me, that's always a sign of a good book!
