Once been the Man Who Had Everything at that point he thought he had nothing left to loseUntil Abilene Bravo walked into his life and he realized he was wrong I picked this one up because it's a RITA nominee I was able to find in the bottomless abyss that is my public library's uncatalogued book racks Ready for this? I was actually really enjoying this book up until the part where the hero and heroine got together Trippy right? Talk about a mindfuck It was like the heroine lost all her spunk and became a limpet Here's an example Dude's in a wheelchair right? So he rents a handicapable van that's going to meet him at the airport His plan is to get into the van and drive to meet the heroine at the house he's going to be staying at So she wants to meet him at the airport and he says No I'll have the van waiting There's no point Totally logical and full of common sense right? And then she thinks to herself Of course there was a point To see him To be with him as soon as she possibly could She talks herself out of saying anything just because she loved him didn't mean she had to turn into some wimpy clingy vine pg 176 It says all the right things but I felt the implication was oh she's being noble and he's being a jackass In the beginning of the book when the hero was being a jackass she was a charming smart ass who didn't let him get away with shit Now she's in love with him and the smart assery went 'poof' It's just not healthy If the heroine was my friend I'd be getting ready for a 'Have you thought this through?' talk It all works out of course because they break up for like three weeks the hero goes away apparently has some kind of off screen epiphany and then comes back to grovel The groveling was well done and to her credit she didn't take him back as soon as he showed up Still I would have like to seen the hero's revelation because it felt like it was very convenient and out of nowhere

    This was one of those books where the blurb doesn't match the title and the text doesn't explain the title until almost halfway through I wanted to like this book if only because there aren't enough heroes with disabilities Sadly though it felt to me as if the wheelchair was mostly a plot device to give an extra reason for angst and a lot of the problems it threw up could have been solved far easily than the characters managed Disappointing and I would love to see romances that do characters with disabilities better

    I was so happy that Donovan met a woman like Abilene who could help him rebuild his life while they work together to build the children's center he lost his young son and was hurt in a climbing accident but they fell on love and decide to have children together

    I loved that the two main characters were architects I haven't read a couple like this before I also really liked that the hero was literally injured In a wheelchair like The wounded hero is such a great theme and this author took it a step further and physically wounded her hero as well This led to some serious walls for the heroine to break throughWell done
