What a beautiful and heart warming book.I always go for books with hot alpha male type heroes and make no mistake Lucas was definitely hot and an alpha male, but as the story progressed and as I learnt about all he'd gone through, I saw a vulnerable man/boy who had survived the worst kind of trauma. For me this book was about having the strength to overcome loss, pain and whatever challenge life may throw your way. I was deeply effected by this book, I mean seriously I had tears in my eyes. Jacqueline was exactly what Lucas needed to make him feel again and vice versa before Lucas Jacqueline never really new what it was to love or be loved. If I could give this book a ten I would that's how great it was!
