Guilt abounds so much in this story no one is happy. At first. It’s a long road but Henry and April are supposed to be together but the timing is all-wrong when they meet. Both are attracted to the other but pesky morals and loyalty get in the way. When the way is finally clear, guilt again puts up a roadblock. What to do, what to do?
Goodness, but this was a sticky situation. A love triangle of a sort, but one party is totally unaware. Another party is so jealous she can’t stand it, and the third party is stuck between a rock and a hard place, screwed no matter which way he turns.
I personally didn’t feel a lot of chemistry between Henry and April, and Henry was kind of a jerk a lot of the time. For a successful man owning his own business he had horrible communication skills. April was a clueless sweetheart who was resigned to a life of solitude. Things seem a little stilted at times and reminded me of the Harlequin’s I read in high school. I finished the book quickly and was very happy with the epilogue the author provided.
Henry wanted April from the first moment he saw her, but he was already dating her best friend. There was no way he could have her, so he did everything he could to forget the mocha-skinned beauty.
When a car crash injures April, and kills her friend, she doesn’t know what to do. She visits Henry since he’s just lost his fiancee, and she’s surprised when Henry offers to help her when she can’t work. For as long as she’s known Henry, April has been attracted to him but she would never act on it. She’d never betray her friend.
What will happen when they’re together, with nothing stopping them from going after what they both want? The moment Henry touches her, April knows he’s the love of her life. Something so good, couldn’t be wrong, could it?
