Desiree Chevalier is determined to control her own destiny, and that includes shaking her mother’s iron grip on her life. Rosalie Chevalier is not going down without a fight. She’s a corporate raider after all and it just wouldn’t do to have a wayward daughter. When Desiree steps away from the Chevalier fortune to put herself through Mount Holyoke College, Rosalie decides to show up on her doorstep. Although her mother digs in, Desiree refuses to bend.
Rowan Knight is working just as hard as Desiree to put herself through school. She is intrigued by Desiree but also wary of the icy reception she receives each time they meet. Rosalie’s persistent interference in Desiree’s life intensifies the tension between Desiree and Rowan. Will they be able to move past the obstacles in their path, or will their love remain unspoken?

My View:

Good and Mushy

Desiree is a woman n a mission. She comes from money but is determined, much to her mother’s disapproval, to make her own way through college and beyond. Relationships are simply out of the question she has too much to do. So why does her heart beat faster and her head turns to mush when the lovely Rowan is around? Rowan in also working her way through school. She is very busy and reserved but when she is around Desiree her pulse quickens and she thinks of things she cant have…. Will the two if them manage to find a way around their busy schedules and personal problems? Find out what life has in store for these two beautiful women.

This book has great flow and is technically sound. I liked the conflict between Desiree and her mother It added to the mysteries of the book. I could not imagine why she was so hateful to her daughter and I was amazed when I found out the reasons were revealed. Rowan was my hero as she was so protective of Desiree when they deal with her mother. Rowan is amazingly strong as she guards her secret pain and Desiree is so patient, gentle, calming and soothing when Rowan needs her to be. They really took turns being strong when the other felt weak or sad. I really loved the gentle and tender relationship that Desiree and Rowan formed. I liked how they took things slowly, building a solid friendship before becoming too intimate. They make a great couple. The ending was just so endearing and sweet. I have put this book in my re-read pile and can’t wait to get back to it. Thanks Ms. McMullen.
