As a physical sports therapist, Gail Bennett is accustomed to working with gorgeous athletes every day, but after falling for a few of these attractive men, she has been left heartbroken one too many times. When Gail’s hours at work are unexpectedly cut, she must find a way to continue helping her parents pay for her sister’s education. Reluctantly following her best friend’s advice, Gail takes on a roommate with the one man she has been avoiding since the first time she laid eyes on him.
Damon Johnson loves a challenge, and he is not the type of man to back down when he wants something. From the first moment he meets Gail for dinner, he feels an inexplicable pull between the two of them. In his determination to have her, he finds himself helping her in any way he can.
Can Damon break through all the barriers Gail has so carefully placed around her heart and prove that he’s different? Or will Gail’s reservations keep her from falling in love?
One thought could change everything.
This book was entertaining and fun. My heart hurt for Gail and all her bad luck, but with Damon coming in to the picture, I was fairly certain her luck was going to change. Once I started reading this book, I couldn’t put it down; I was dying to see how things transpired between Gail and Damon. There were very few things that I didn’t enjoy about the book, which was a refreshing change from reading a book and wanting to throw it across the room. The main thing that bothered me about the book was all of the foul language and the adult situations. I don’t like reading that stuff, so I skipped it, and the book was fine that way, too. One thing that confused me was that at the beginning of the book, Gail makes it sound like she became a physical therapist because of her accident and inability to play sports for a while, but then later in the book she tells Damon that she became a PT because of her sister and the lack of understanding about autism. I really did enjoy this book. I don’t spend a lot of time yelling at characters in books that I don’t like, but in this one I was squealing and giggling and berating the characters. One thing that I really would have enjoyed seeing more in the book was Gail and her PT job. We see Damon working a lot, but Gail only has work related content, where we actually hear about something she is doing, like two or three times. Read this book guys! I haven’t read the others in the series, but now I want to!
