Bella Andre is a writing genius.

There went my heart. Bella Andre has done it again. She has taken two people, lost and alone, and made them perfect together. She had my heart beating faster with every touching moment. I gushed. I sighed. I cried. So many wonderful emotions packed into this wonderful story of two talented Maine Makers.
Rory Sullivan creates gorgeous works of art out of wood. He pours his heart and soul into each and every piece leaving nothing for a woman. He couldn't. He wouldn't. There was no way he was getting involved with a woman. He couldn't handle it. Not again.
Zara Mirren has a shop in the same warehouse as Rory Sullivan's woodwork. She creates frames for eyeglasses, beautiful, unique, special. She keeps herself busy, protected, not seeing the world as she creates a way for others to see the world through her designs.
Rory and Zara have been bickering, nagging, complaining, antagonizing each other for the past year. They are oil and water, under the same roof, crossing paths poking each other. The day Rory walks in on Zara crying everything changes. Rory acts without thinking. His heart is in control and he doesn't even know it.
What a rush!! I thoroughly enjoyed watching their armors tarnish and crack. I loved how they thought they could prevent the future when they couldn't control their pasts. I have known so many Rorys and Zaras. To be honest I have been a little like them and maybe that is what is the best about this book. The reader can identify. The characters survived giving us all hope for a better, brighter tomorrow.
Second time around was even better.B
