He wore suits and I wore biker boots.
He went to University and I went to Trade school.
He lived in a big home and I lived in a tiny apartment.
When my world was turned upside down,
he took me in his arms and promised to help me find a new direction.
Now I’ve lost my job,
been separated from my friends,

One Can Hope
Ian, rocket scientist and Leo, mechanic. They have machines and friendship in common.. Leo has always had an eye for Ian as they were around each other since childhood. Her mother blames her for everything that hasn’t happened because of her sacrifice during her pregnancy. The mom emotionally abuses Leo throughout her life and despite the circumstance, Leo rises out of it all a stronger and more comfortable in her own skin. It seems that Ian’s secretary is a plus 1 at his brothers wedding to Detective Bressler and she causes trouble for Leo. A ‘motors’ cop is injured in a bike accident and Leo is blamed for tampering with bike. Leo is repeatedly called to station and she or Ian can’t figure out who is the real crook until she gets a lead and videotapes what Bressler does. I like books that educate me on some theme in the book. Leo gets to the point of desperation but her resolve and friends pull her through. Good read
I didn’t like this book as well as the other three. I didn’t like how Ian just all of a sudden started “seeing” Leo. I also found the mystery a little predictable. Leo had been in love with Ian her whole life, but Ian never really saw her as anything but a friend of the family. At his brothers wedding he starts to see her in a different light. Soon after that her life starts to fall apart. I figured out the real cause of Leo’s problems from the beginning. It was a good book but I felt the others were great.
Love this book and the whole series. You will not be disappointed. Can’t wait for the last installment.
