You grow up. You get married. You have a family. That’s what Malea Winters believes she’s supposed to do. So why is it every time she comes close to finding that happily ever after, she runs?
When she meets Garrett Taylor, she warns him that she’s not the marrying type. History has shown that long-term relationships are not her forte. She has a tendency to leave when things get too serious; the direct result of being raised by an emotionally detached mother and a stepdad with philandering ways. So, she swears off men and surrounds herself with her best friends; three quirky, funny women who are facing their own challenges. But Garrett is everything she’s ever looked for; charming, successful, fun, and sexy.
Despite her better judgement, his persistence pays off and she finds herself falling for him. Learning how to love and be loved will be the hardest lesson she’s ever faced. The question is, will her relationships survive that lesson?
I am recommending this book especially if you have a lot of “what-ifs” in life and if you are still having doubts on your own decisions. This book would really help you to understand yourself better. If you are like Malea, surely this one is for you to read. (I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review) – Alyssa Janine Busia
This is a great novel that explores questions that are most likely very relevant to a great deal of readers. How does one know if someone really, truly loves them, and if they do, then what does it feel like? Does everyone deserve that amazing, unconditional love? What does it take for someone to give in to that vulnerability and trust that someone loves them? Michelle Bellon provides a moving story of Malea’s self-reflection and self-discovery and I look forward to reading more from her (and hopefully about these characters) in the future!

This book would make an excellent learning tool for any young person coming from an abnormal family background. Perhaps it would assist them in seeing the pit falls of reacting compulsively. Or maybe they would get a better understanding of themselves. For whatever reason – this book is an eye-opener to understanding behavior patterns of a disturbed person.
