Publisher's Summary

This classic novel from Debbie Macomber explores the tender, intimate joys of love and family.

A driven workaholic, CEO Caasi Crane has sacrificed all semblance of a personal life to build a West Coast hotel empire. But business as usual will never be the same when the man Caasi trusts with all her heart abruptly resigns. Having to replace her top manager isn’t the end of the world - or at least it shouldn’t feel like it. So why does it hurt so much to lose him?

Blake Sherrill is excellent at his job, and he knows it. But when it comes to Caasi, the time has come to cut his losses. Ironically, now that he’s ready to walk away from the woman he cares for, he gets what he’s wanted all along: Caasi’s undivided attention. Dragging her into his family’s frenzy of potlucks, weddings, and bouncing babies, Blake tries to teach an isolated career woman about the world outside her lonely penthouse - and a love that’s strong enough last a lifetime.

POTENTIALLY ABUSIVE PARTNER PURSUED RELENTLESSLY

Rich and independent female wishes for something more then business success and independence. She wants home and family and children. But instead ends up pursuing relentlessly a man who repeatedly treats her like trash and is only nice to her when she initiates physical intimacy. It is a counselor's nightmare because this occurs so often in real life. I did turn off the book when it came to a bedroom scene that I did not want to listen through. However, undoubtably the author will at the end of the book allow the couple to come together and the abusive man will suddenly become kind and gentle and their relationship will work out. In real life that is not so. Someone who treats you like trash every time you are together except when you are being physically intimate, and threatens to break down your door to get into your apartment if you try to keep him out is not going to suddenly be a kind and gentle and patient spouse. A very hard listen and I did not finish with 2 hours left to go.

Abusive and Baby Crazy

The narrator did a great job. The problem with this book is Blake is continually insulting Caasi, they fight, and she still wants him. Every insult he gives her she acts like it was her fault. That’s an abusive relationship. Blake keeps getting mad that she doesn’t know he likes her when HE NEVER TOLD HER!!! He just keeps picking fights.

The other problem I had was how baby crazy this book was. It made it sound like the goal of life is to become pregnant. It was written in a way that made the topic as simple as “I want a puppy”. No thought into what kids actually need and the time they take. And the fact that her friends keep pushing that idea...

Dated

I honestly thought when I was listening to this book, that it had to of been written in the very early to middle 1970s. I was rather surprised when I looked it up and all I could find was copyright 2015. It was very painful to listen to. I love Debbie’s writing normally and I’m glad she doesn’t write like this anymore.

Boring juvenile fluff.

Not for me. Maybe for you. I enjoy her more recent writing. She is a fine author.

Seriously?

Not a very empowering story for women. The male lead is a verbally abusive jerk yet she keeps going back for more. Women can be professional and still have some self respect.
