Allegedly, he's come to defend Lynn from angry locals who don't want her home for delinquent girls in their neighborhood. But as far as Lynn is concerned, he's looking for a photo op, a chance to play the hero; the last thing either she or her troubled girls need.
What they need is understanding. Lynn knows teenage rebellion all too well. And she knows firsthand its heartbreaking price. She won't touch the good senator with a 10-foot pole only to watch him disappear once he gets what he wants. Unfortunately, Erik refuses to go away.
The moment Erik looks into her emerald eyes, his interest in work falls into serious competition with his interest in Lynn Shaw. Her rejection of his assistance only intrigues him further. He is determined to know her and to help her. If that means practically moving into Horizon House, so be it.
But as the two engage in a battle of hearts, it becomes clear that Lynn is waging a private war of her own, against demons of the past and against her overwhelming desire for the one man who may be worth fighting for.

I usually enjoy Tami Hoag, but this was definately not her best. It was a cheesy romance novel. I found myself rolling my eyes constantly and I knew what would happen next. The characters were really predictable and so was the story. So, I turned it off and didn't finish it. Apparently, I was not the only one who was disappointed.
this was very disappointing. she should stay away from romance novels...it dragged on so badly I didnt even finishi it.
I've enjoyed all the Tami Hoag books I've read / listened to up until this one. Her books always include some romantic elements, and they're usually pretty well-done but this one was so cheesy and over the top I just had to stop listening before the end. Perhaps it was written for a differnt audience than her other books -- like a Harlequin romance series?
I will pass on reading any another book from Tami Hoag. Too many other good authors out there to read.
Thin story line if any. I used to enjoy her detective stories.
"An easy listen..."
I listen to audiobooks at the gym to pass the time on the treadmill, so I want something absorbing but undemanding. This was great - to be sure you knew where it was going, knew the path of true love would eventually run smooth, but there was enough plot to hold the interest over 5 separate trips to the gym. Listening to the fairly detailed sex scenes as I plodded along was grin making - and there's nothing like listening to such scenes to make you appreciate how hard it is to get these right, without getting cheesy. Ms Hoag manages just fine! I was just a tad paranoid that others could hear as well!
