The one woman he wants is the one he cannot have.
Former foster kid Sebastian Grant has leveraged his intelligence and hard work to become a pediatric heart surgeon. But not even his career success can erase the void he’s tried so hard to fill. Then he meets high school teacher Leah Montgomery and his fast-spinning world comes to a sudden stop. He falls hard, only to make a devastating discovery–Leah is the woman his best friend set his heart on months before.
Leah’s a math prodigy who’s only ever had one big dream–to earn her PhD. Raising her little brother put that dream on hold. Now that her brother will soon be college bound, she’s not going to let anything stand in her way. Especially romance . . . which is far less dependable than algebra.
When Leah receives surprising results from the DNA test she submitted to a genealogy site, she solicits Sebastian’s help. Together, they comb through hospital records to uncover the secrets of her history. The more powerfully they’re drawn to each other, the more strongly Sebastian must resist, and the more Leah must admit that some things in life–like love–can’t be explained with numbers.
I have been a Becky Wade since first read her work. Her books are full of good romance and always an interesting mystery.
This book contained those elements as well. This mystery was really interesting as I wasn’t sure how Leah would handle the situation and then there is a surprising twist at the end that will make your jaw drop.
The romance wasn’t my favorite. I feel some of the tension was released too soon, but it was still good.
I was bothered that Becky chose to throw in a political statement, targeted at men. I’m pretty sure I did an eye roll when I read it and I was so disappointed that she chose to add this to an otherwise good book, especially coming form a Christian. It makes me even question if I want to read anymore of her books. I read to escape the realities of this world, especially all the political stuff. However, I am very interested in the next character that will be featured so more then likely I will read it and hope I don’t see anymore things like this.
Also, Sabastian seemed to share a lot of private hospital stuff with Leah. Isn’t that against HIPAA laws? I don’t know, but it seemed odd to me and not something that could really happen legally.
