Publisher's Summary

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • One of beloved author Debbie Macomber’s classic novels, this is a beautiful story of hope, healing, and the magic of the human heart.

Physical therapist Joy Neilsen doesn’t take no for an answer when it comes to her patients. She’s tough yet compassionate, doing whatever it takes to get them back on their feet...and she’s met her match in Sloan Whittaker. Bitter, angry, resentful, Sloan is ready to give up. But Joy doesn’t let anybody quit, especially not a man as talented as this brilliant tycoon - a man who, somewhere along the way, has won her heart.

After weeks trying to push Joy away, Sloan realizes he’s a fool. She’s determined to piece him back together, and now he knows why: Deep down, she’s as broken as he is. Joy is prepared to give him everything, and now Sloan wants to give her something in return. He can be the one to show Joy that she’s perfect inside and out - if she’s willing to let go of her own painful memories and make happy ones with him.

a sort of different take on "Me before You"

it was a sweet story. I loved the narrator, she did a great job with the inflection of her voice, maybe a little bit more of variance could be done with different characters, but otherwise good. I absolutely loved "Me before You", so I'm all for reading this type of story.

An enjoyable listen

This was a sweet and wonderful romance listen. I love this author and will continue to listen to and read her books. I liked the characters and I liked how they brought out the best in each other. I liked how they played off each other as well. i would highly recommend it to others. I enjoyed listening to the narrator as well. She was easy to understand and helped bring the characters to life. I would listen to more books read by her.

Too Ridiculous

This story is too ridiculous to be enjoyed. Some books require us to suspend disbelief, but not this one. It’s simply not good. Both main characters are not relatable or likable. She is whiny, constantly confused and unprofessional (In the real world, she would never work again if she behaved as she did on the job). He is a spoiled, angry, and mean man-child. Regardless of his plight, his behavior would have people calling for a mental health professional. I would be concerned that this jerk would start smacked her around once the shine wore off the relationship. I listened to the entire book, hoping there would be an improvement, but no. I finished listening yesterday afternoon and can’t remember how it ended. Save yourself six hours of your life and find something else to listen to.

Narrator

I’m someone who can get past a narrator who has a annoying voice. I’ve noticed with the new book Debbie just got on audible are all read by older women & men so when the characters say they are 30 or younger it doesn’t add up. I always end up thinking they are older because of the voice of the narrator. If there was a younger woman reading it wouldn’t have been too bad but honestly it was a good book and you can get past the older narrator!
