Great Debut by a New Author!
Joel is a parachute jumper who hates coming back to his hometown. Amber is the teacher who writes to him to come visit her school. Bradley is the little boy with cancer that connects the two. Joel is reluctant to give into a relationship due to past events while Amber's first concerns are for the well being of Bradley. Together the two find out that their love for the boy will bring them to a romance that the two of them cannot deny.
This is the perfect book for romance lovers. The story is sweet and charming with the characters just the type you can't wait to see fall in love. You have the heroic macho guy with a sensitive side and the faithful teacher with a cute kid thrown in for good measure. It's a great story that's really touching and will make for a enjoyable read. It's a great way to spend an afternoon curled up in your chair. The scene where Amber fries her hair is hilarious because it's a situation that could happen to anyone. I enjoyed learning about parachute jumping. I really admire the guys who jump out of planes to rescue people. There is no way you could have gotten me to do what Amber did when she jumped out of the plane with Joel. I don't care how much I liked the guy, I prefer having my feet planted firmly on the ground, thank you very much! And wow, I really did not like Bradley's foster mother. I cannot believe that someone would just let a kid die while under their care. Why would you even apply to become a foster parent and why on earth was she still even considered to house kids? It just makes you even more sadder for the kids that are put in the foster care system. Overall I really enjoyed reading this book. It's a wonderful debut from a promising author. I'm looking forward to her next book!
