Overall Rating: 5 stars
From his dirty-blond hair and breathtaking smile, to the abs from heaven and the irresistible V in his waistline, everything about Bodi Olympic-gold-medalist Banks screams hot piece of @$$.
Yet there’s more.
Dark shadows lurk behind his soulful, serious eyes.
I’m enamored. He’s captured me.
How can running an art foundation with Bodi Banks turns into a slow-burning, epic romance, even though he tries to push me away at every chance? How can I stay away from a broken, routine-driven man whose soul cries to be forgiven for a crime only he believes he committed? Or is that a lie?
GAH!!!! I freakin LOVED this book. It PERFECTLY blends real life imperfections with true love and romance. The hero of this story suffers from almost debilitating OCD from a traumatic event that took place in his childhood but when Ms. Rainbows and butterflies walks into his life flashing her rich and colorful personality at him, his whole world changes for the better. Told with Quinn’s remarkable sense of humor with a splash of tragedy and sadness, this is definitely THE book to read this year. Honestly, I love everything Meghan Quinn writes but THIS book totally hits it out of the park. It’s amazing. Really, AMAZING. You must read it for yourself to see what I mean. Clearly, I highly recommend it!
So this book is definitely one of those slow burning romances that leaves you hanging off the edge of your seat hoping and praying that everything will work out between the hero and heroine. Readers won’t be disappointed in the slightest however, there are some major up’s and downs that they must contend with before reaching their happily ever after. As I said before, Bodi (the hero of the story) suffers from extreme OCD and has a very hard time not only socializing, but leaving the confines of himself. Now, he may be a gold medalist swimmer, but there are some major problems in his life that keep him extremely closed off to the world. Our heroine on the other hand is FULL of sunshine and butterflies. She had me laughing at the most inopportune moments and I swear, my husband must think I am crazy. I mean the things that come out of that woman’s mouth will literally make you giggle snort and possibly wet your pants. YUP. It’s that funny. All joking aside though, this is a great story that will really touch your heart. So, you NEED to read it. Pretty please? It’s worth it!
