My Review:

This is a superb, stupendous, emotively written  story of heartbreaking sadness following a traumatic accident which robbed a talented ballet soloist of her career, much of her memory and life. At the time she was pregnant and, although she gave birth to her son, Jack, it is her husband, Malcolm McKenzie (Colm) who has been raising him. Colm is a wealthy Scottish tycoon and has been helping Ava recover but without her knowing it as she wanted her independence. Now she’s improving, Jack wants his Mum and Colm wants his beloved wife back. Can love and perseverance overcome all the obstacles in their journey to their HEA?

This is a poignant story, one which takes the reader on a journey into the depths of despair and heartbreak and shows how consistent love and support – together with equal measures of patience and obstinate determination – can help overcome the fears, obstacles and trauma. It highlights how such injuries impact not only on the injured person but on all those around them. It is a carefully crafted novel, taking the reader with the characters on this emotional roller coaster ride to their HEA.   

Thanks to the publishers for gifting me an ARC of this novel, via NetGalley, in exchange for my honest review.


Malcolm McKenzie will never forget that night in New York when he put Ava Galvan in a taxi following a heated argument, and the Argentine beauty was involved in an horrific accident—one that ended her career as an acclaimed soloist with the Manhattan Ballet, and impaired her memory and ability to live an independent life.

The Scottish tycoon and philanthropist lives with his guilt, and another consequence: Ava was pregnant with his child the night of the accident. Ever since that night, Malcom has raised Jack as a single father.

But Ava is stronger now, and Jack wants his mommy to come home. Malcolm has never stopped wanting her and he’s determined to do whatever it takes to claim Ava—with or without her consent.
