Then her old New York artist life comes knocking, and an offer is made for a series of commissioned paintings. Lia knows it would ensure financial security for her family, but she doesn't know if she wants that life anymore. When she undertakes one final project, she reawakens her heart and soul. And as she finds herself falling in love and needing an outlet more and more, she realizes her paintings might be her saving grace.
I am a Melanie Jacobson fan. I admit it. I am. I love her books and I love her style of writing. She knows how to write a clean romance with humor and wit. Her books suck me in and I never want to put them down. This book was no exception. I've been wanting to read this book since I first saw it. Yay for the day when it popped up in my Deseret Bookshelf to read and review! I love book gifts sent to me through Deseret Bookshelf!!
Lia is such a likable character. I just love her. I love how she devotes so much to her niece and her sister. Lia's interactions with Aidan will make you smile. Well, it made me smile anyway. :) I love how Lia returns to a love of painting. The whole process and how it is described make me feel like I was missing out on something grand.
Aidan and Lia are two imperfect people who definitely don't really understand each other until they break down the walls and listen to each other- which made me want to strangle them both at one time or another, but the tension and the build up are both parts of what make this book really good. I really loved it.
This was a fantastic diversion for me. I love picking up a book, getting sucked in and not wanting to put it down. Entertaining, romantic reads are my favorite.
