TWICE AS TEMPTING Aiden Downey threw away the best thing he ever had when he let Sadie go, and now he's determined to win back the woman he's always wanted.

I loved Aiden! He is so sweet and such a gentleman. The sacrifices he made to take care of his dying mother and family melted my heart. He truly is a good guy. Sadie is a strong, smart, and confident woman. I was thrilled to see them work through there issues and achieve the happily ever after they deserve! I look forward to more books in this series.
