Broken hero + Sunshine heroine = Perfect together.
Jules Steele is a cancer survivor. She was diagnosed with a Wilms tumor at the age of three and had a kidney removed. She thinks her happy and bright outlook on life is partially the result of beating cancer. She has the personality of spreading happiness to those around her. She shines so bright her dad nicknamed her “Bug” after the brightness of the lightning bug. Her life on Silver Island is just about perfect. She owns a gift shop called the Happy End which she runs with her very best friend Bellamy Silver. There is someone that could make her life 100% perfect – Grant Silver. Grant is back on Silver Island after losing his leg to an IED explosion on a mission with the covert operations group he was a part of. He’s home on the island but practically a recluse. At the very least Jules is hoping to brighten his life with her friendship if that’s all they are destined to have. Jules is hoping for more. She has been attracted to Grant since his last leave before his injury.
Grant Silver joined the military when he was eighteen. He was anxious to get away from the tension in his family and his anger at his father. When he lost his leg to an IED he became, angry, bitter and closed-off. The efforts Jules Steele kept making with her sweet actions finally started making him feel whole again. No one could long resist the happiness and light Jules shines on those she is around. After seeing Jules in a super sexy pixie costume at the annual island Halloween event Grant found himself calling her”Pix” for short. “Pix” seemed determined to light up his life and, darn it, he found himself really liking it. Spending time with her was addictive.
Ms. Foster has once again treated her readers to a very deeply emotional, heartwarming and super sexy story. She has taken a broken man devastated by his injury and loss of career and paired him with the perfect partner. Jules really opens Grant’s eyes to all the joy and good things he still has in his life, especially her. What I like best about this book is that it has that special Melissa Foster touch. It is filled with mind-blowing romantic scenes. The special dinner Grant plans for Jules at his brother’s restaurant made me sigh. So sweet and romantic. And there’s so many more super romantic scenes to enjoy in this book. This story makes my heart happy. The feel-goods go on and on.
They say opposites attract. Will this hold true for Jules Steele and Grant Silver?
