Fiercely independent and newly single mom Emmaline Hart has spent the last thirteen years putting everyone's needs before her own. Secretly afraid that her ex-husband's assertions that she's too uptight are right, Emma nonetheless keeps her life, and her emotions, firmly under control, fearful of getting hurt again. However, when she meets the dangerously attractive Beckett Black on a job assignment, the way his casual touch sends her pulse racing forces her to acknowledge her growing need to move beyond her fear. When Beckett offers her a job writing the memoir of his father, a renowned cancer researcher, Emma jumps at the career opportunity and the chance to get to know Beckett better.
Emma spends her days with the renowned doctor, who has spent his career studying a plant in the Amazon that has the potential to cure cancer, and her nights with Beckett, who slowly pushes past her fears and breaks down her barriers, introducing her to a passionate and forbidden love that surpasses her wildest fantasies. As the doctor's story of secrets and cover-ups unravels, so does Emmaline's view on everything she thought she knew about herself and the power of surrender.
The Black Brothers Trilogy
Three brothers, bound by a secret that could change the world of medicine.
Three women, hired to protect the secret that someone is willing to kill for.
The last thing they expected to find was love.
I will give this book a 4 1/2 stars. It didn’t flow in about 4 areas, but finally came together at the end. I needs work.
It was good
The story was good, but not great. I found myself skimming a little and I think Emmaline came off a bit childish. Also, the author uses “!” way too much and in the wrong way. It make Emmaline sound like she’s screaming at Beckett all the time. First time reading this author. I’ll give her another chance.
