Myra Sommers is just starting to get her life back on track when everything falls apart. Having had her heart shattered in the past, she hesitates to take a chance on her grumpy, attractive contractor but finds herself falling for him nevertheless. Though she knows the rough yet tender man is keeping his painful past hidden from her, she is stunned when the trust she was beginning to put in him is broken.
Dylan Lawson is fighting back from the darkness and barely existing when he meets Myra. But his inability to open up to her about his past catches up with him, and suddenly their new, fragile relationship is put to the ultimate test. With an inner battle of loss, grief and pain, will Dylan find his second chance and forgiveness in Myra or will he forever be trapped in his past?
A devastating secret is about to be revealed that could either end or strengthen their relationship. Myra could be the key to Dylan’s own healing and forgiveness but can his heart take another chance? With so many obstacles in their way, can they forgive themselves and each other and build a future together? Find out in this final installment of the Color series.
So I was given an advanced reading copy of this book. I have to say it lived up to all the expectations I had about it. Myra and Dylan’s story was a moving/funny/romantic story of how love can heal. The relationship that Myra and Dylan had in the book was to me an honest relationship between two people falling in love. They had their ups and downs, and with Dylan’s past heartbreak clouding his views on his life, it was great to see how Myra and her love helped him.
Susie…oh Susie, she was the much-needed comic relief for this book. With the heavy topics Myra and Dylan faced, Susie was the entertainment and lightness this book needed. Everyone should have a friend like Susie.
