I have to say that as soon as I heard that the main male protagonist was a pilot I was more than excited. Dorian Rae is a passionate, determined and incredibly kind human being. Not to mention a hot male in a uniform ;) He is sweet and compassionate but also kinky. At times, he gets easily embarrassed but that makes him all that much sweeter. He is cheeky as seen by this quote:
*"You're a handful."
He winks at me. "In more ways than one."*
But we should also take a look at the main female protagonist. Robin is a woman with a heavy burden to carry. She is determined to start her life fresh and reconnect with her family however many factors stand in her way. Some of out of her control like how the wider community treats her. This treatment is not unexpected but still moves you and I felt immense pity and sadness for her. Robin is hard on herself and punishes herself because of the guilt she carries every day. I was torn about my feelings towards her. Part of me was sympathetic because of the difficulties she was facing and the other part of me felt that she had brought that pain down upon herself through her actions.
Now these two characters have not one but multiple meetings that hint at Fate playing a role in their connection. Without realising it, the two protagonists were linked long before their physical meeting which highlights how our actions have a ripple effect with far reaching consequences that can impact on the lives of others we have never met.
The story elicits real and passionate emotions from the reader and, at times, takes you by surprise. Some of those strong feelings were brought to the surface while reading this and at one point, I was nearly close to flinging my iPad across the room and screaming bloody murder!
Ms. Rohman has an incredible talent of creating memorable characters which are unique and special. The characters are complex and face some trying times. You empathise with them and feel their pain as if they were your own. Many were wonderful individuals that warm your heart while others showed some dark sides to their personality. Ms. Rohman also has a way of incorporating some very real and sensitive issues that people face in these modern days and tackles them with delicacy and respect. This story examines forgiveness. It is a powerful concept but it is also difficult to gain especially from yourself. People often say that the first step in moving forward is learning to forgive yourself. It isn’t as easy as you think. Therefore, can Robin do that or will she allow her past to dictate her future? The story tests your ideas about what is right and how you judge a person without having the full story. Can you really know what they have experienced and what right do you have to judge them? I'm reminded of the phrase, people in glasshouses shouldn't throw stones. If that was you, wouldn't you want someone in your corner fighting for you? Or would you want the whole world turning their back on you because of your past? The story also shows how interconnected our lives can be and in a way it’s heart warming because in a digital driven world, connections with others reminds us that we aren’t so alone.
Ms. Rohman weaves love, romance, and humour into the story to balance the tough issues. There are some adorable sweet and tender moments and not to mention funny scenes to make you laugh. There are twists and tears but what more could you ask for? I thoroughly enjoyed being challenged and entertained with this special story.

RR does it AGAIN! 5 Stars all the way.Reviewed in the United States on 27 February 2019
I received an Advanced Reader copy of this book. About 4 months ago I was introduced to Rebecca Rohman thru Facebook. I got her first book free. It was one of those..."I HAVE to have the next book now".... and I have been thru all of her books. This author gives you romance, intrigue, suspense, heat, lies, secrets and so much more. This most recent book did not disappoint, you are hanging on till the very end....you HAVE to keep turning the pages. It is a standalone but to know everyone in the book you will definitely want to read the others. I am looking forward to the next one....it can't come soon enough!!!!
