Tammy Kuhn is an organ procurement specialist. She is very outspoken about her faith and that has led to her being under scrutiny by her supervisor. She's also a single mom trying to make her children the best life possible when their father doesn't seem to care about them. Nick Zimmerman also has his own custody battles going on. His ex-wife refuses to let him have their sons on their agreed upon visits. Yet when she needs him to keep the boys while she goes on vacation, Nick is thrilled to have the chance to connect with his boys. They are together for only a day or so when there is an accident, and one of his boys finds himself in a fight for his life. When the unimaginable happens, Nick meets Tammy in the hospital ICU waiting room. As both struggle with their lives, they begin to reconnect with each other. They were once high school friends. But will the trials make them stronger or not?
First of all, the title's subtitle of "contemporary romance" is very misleading. The romance is an after thought. Really. This book should be classified as contemporary fiction instead.
While this was a quick read, it wasn't what I expected. This is a new to me author, and I appreciate the fact that she dealt with issues most authors don't touch. Yet, while it was good, I didn't find it to be great. I probably won't reread the book.
And while it it was good, I found the first half of the book much more interesting than the second half. The characters just seemed to stop being developed after the first half.
I received this book for free from the author for my honest review. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
Recommended to fans of contemporary fiction
