There's no backing down this time.
Lucy Everhart expected her opposing counsel to be a slick, soulless corporate lawyer. Who else would represent developers intent on turning Chicago's Safe Haven women's shelter into condos? But she never imagined it would be Dylan Hunt. Clearly, he's no longer the idealistic young man she fell for in law school. This is Dylan 2.0. The man who let her go without a fight five years ago—along with his passion for social justice, apparently. He may have compromised what he believed in, but Lucy hasn't. Dylan has no idea what kind of fight he's in for. But then again, neither does she.
Very well written story, that flowed nicely, keeping the interest through the book.
Two very important, serious issues were presented in the story, both domestic abuse and breast cancer. The fear of the unknown future, possible steps that need to be taken, and the uncertainty of everything, is palpable.
Dylan fast came one of my favorite heroes. He is truly loyal, solid, trustworthy, and kind person. His beliefs and motivations are good, and if the worst fault he has, is feeling too deeply, I let him have it. I loved how he got a totally new insight to his parents, whom he hadn't had a great relationship.
Lucy was not easy to like. Some of here reasoning and actions were off the chart. She was stubborn to the fault, often spoke in a rude manner without having all the facts presented. Her anger towards Dylan was unreasonable, you can't be mad at someone cause you left them, and asked them to leave you alone, and they do.
The patience and forgiveness Dylan has in his heart is nothing short of amazing.
After all the secrets come out, and they have a chance to work on the relationship, it takes an emotional road to get there. That part of the story was a kind of redemption to Lucy, I found some understanding towards her and her behavior.
Very important issues mixed with a second chance romance, and couple crazy families, are the makings of this emotionally charged, heartwarming tale
