Hannah Walker is just trying to get over her horrible day – after having to put her beloved dog to sleep, she wanders the grocery store to get the things she needs for dinner at her brothers house. She had no plans to meet anyone, much less the charming playboy Stephen McKinney.
Stephen sees her upset, and tries to talk to her. She has absolutely no interest in him, and when he asks her out for dinner, she declines. Not willing to let her go, he pushes and they agree to meet for drinks.
Hannah shows up and Stephen has already arranged for not only drinks that evening, but a table for dinner. Hannah reluctantly agrees, and finds that she really enjoys his company. What Stephen doesn’t know is that this is Hannah’s first date. At the end of the evening, he asks her to go with him to a family party – his family that he’s been distant from for the last few years.
Having lived through a horrific childhood trauma, her uber-protective brothers have kept her under wraps and she’s been hesitant to get out and meet and trust people. Stephen has suffered his own loss and is plagued by his demons as well. Stephen discovers that Hannah is a physical therapist, providing treatment and care to those most in need (injured children), and Hannah finds that while Stephen may have his own successful company, he's struggling to find out what is really important in his life. The two come together and find that with each other, they can let go of their past and move forward and find the happiness they both deserve.
This is the second book in the McKinney brother’s series, and it’s just as good as the first. Brother Matt, his wife Abby and the kids are all featured in this book, as are the rest of the McKinney family. This one has a bit more drama and deals with some difficult subject matter, but the author handled it well. I’m looking forward to more in this series and other works by this author!
