It all began in Rome…
I was supposed to show Cole the city, as a favor to a friend. I was aware of his reputation, a seductive charmer hellbent on bachelorhood, but I hadn’t prepared for him to get past my defenses. Cole was nothing like the serious businessman I imagined. He was sinfully hot, funny and way too flirty for my broken heart. But, it was just vacation after all. I thought I’d never see him again.
Only I do.
Cole calls me the very day I return to New York. My residency has been my sole focus for the past few years—my passion and my refuge.
I’ve loved and lost and I don’t know how to open up again. But Cole is melting my fears with every kiss and touch, willing to move mountains to make me happy and help me heal.
And what scares me the most? I might just let him.
5 STAR Review
This book is about learning to love again. Laney has a tragic past. One that makes her question if she can love again. This book was sweet. This book was love. This book was about overcoming. I loved falling in love with Laney and Cole. Cole was so patient. Cole’s love for Laney was heartfelt.
Watching the love grow between these two is so special. I love holding on to hope for more for these two. This was more than a story for me. It was about healing. It was about moving on. This book was everything I needed and waited.
I love Layla Hagen. When I ventured into the world of romance books, Layla was one of the first authors I read. I read every book I could get my hands on. My love for her and her books has continued to grow. I can’t wait to see what’s to come in the future.
