About the book:
He's fighting to forget his past while she struggles to remember hers.
Doctor Josh Parker lives with guilt about his wife's death every day. He believes himself incapable of ever loving again, but when a mysterious woman arrives in the Emergency Room, brutally beaten and left for dead, he starts to feel something he hasn't felt in far too long – hope.
Alessandra Matthews has no memory of the events that led to her being hospitalized. Worse, she has no idea who hurt her or why. Although she's uncertain of who she is, she is fully aware of one thing – she's falling for her doctor.
This novel is pure romance. Sparks fly between Josh and Alessa at the beginning and never stop. The romance is definitely the emphasis of the novel. There is a little suspense but it comes late in the story. There could have been more suspense earlier but that was not the case. The “bad guy” aspect of the novel I felt was a little weak, because of not utilizing potential suspense earlier in the plot.
The novel gave me a few things to think about besides the passion of romance. Are there really soul mates? Do some people experience an immediate attraction, sort of love at first sight? How does one really heal from past hurts and how important is one's Christian faith in that healing? How does one regain self esteem after making bad choices?
I recommend this book to people who enjoy Christian romance. The plot is not complicated and the romance moves along continuously. The characters are pretty well developed, with their share of hurts and anxieties.
