Synopsis from Goodreads:
Until Camille Frasier walks into his life.
Beautiful and empathic, Camille soothes Dan’s mind and eases the pains of his body. But she desires more than a gentle hand to help her body to find its fire. And she hopes Dan will give her what she needs.
But some wounds don’t heal correctly. And no matter how much heat Camille offers, Dan feels trapped inside the cold box of his past. Is he strong enough to find his way out?
Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.
I love how Radcliffe introduces us to Daniel. It’s done in an approachable and almost comical manner so that you can’t help but love him (and his to-do list. I need one like that). You also feel your heart going out to him within the first 2 pages. Camille is also such a real person. The way that she shows us both the inner workings of her characters’ minds, their true actions, and how they mesh together makes everything seem so much more real, without having the forced aspects you find with partially developed characters. Also, being privy to their thoughts really solidifies their relationship with one another rather than making it seem like a whirlwind weekend that will be over with the book. There is a lasting quality to it.
My overall thoughts on this one? I couldn’t put it down & I didn’t want it to end. This will definitely be a re-read that stays on my shelf for the long haul.
