Publisher Description

Sean O’Brien sacrificed his future for his family. Now it’s his turn to find love and happiness.

Eighteen years ago Sean became the man of the house when his father walked out on the family. Without a second thought, he put his own hopes and dreams on the back burner and took care of his mom and younger sister. Now the co-owner of a successful bed and breakfast, Sean has accepted his position in life—until the day Mia Troy checks in.

When Hollywood sweetheart, Mia Troy, checks into the Victorian Rose, the only things on her mind are rest and relaxation before she begins work on her new movie in Boston. That is until she meets Sean O’Brien, the co-owner of the bed and breakfast. From the moment she checks in, Mia is drawn to Sean, a reserved man who sees past her celebrity status.

Despite his better judgment, Sean can’t ignore his physical attraction to Mia. Soon he gives into his desire, telling himself all she wants is a quick fling to pass the time. As they spend time together, his feelings grow. But can love between a small town guy and an A-list celebrity ever last?

The Courage To Love

Well Sean needed courage to accomplish his goals in helping his mother,his sister,and to attain his Masters from MIT. This story showed how family was very important. Yes I enjoyed this book very much.

Not a Fan

It's so hard to write a negative review, especially knowing how incredibly difficult it must be to put yourself out there and write a book in the first place. I just did not like the main character in this book. He lacked depth and I was actually annoyed by him in the end, I almost stopped reading it before it was over.
