Synopsis: Sydney Westbrook has had enough.

After a fight with her abusive ex-boyfriend leaves her in the hospital once again, she knows it’s time for a change. Just out of college, Sydney decides to accept a position as a live-in nurse. But leaving the comfort of Atlanta and the support of her small circle of friends is hard to do. And when she meets her ailing, stubborn client, Sydney second guesses all of her choices.

A southern family with a social status to maintain, the McNamara’s think very little of Sydney, especially since she reminds Mrs. McNamara so much of the daughter-in-law she never accepted. But when Sydney encounters Quinn, the defiant grandson, her views of the family begin to change. And her heart begins to heal the hole left behind by the abuse.

Sydney and Quinn may have little time together, but they make the most out of it. A public display of their relationship is short-lived when Sydney learns just how far her client will go to save her family’s namesake. And when Sydney’s past suddenly rips into her new world, her happiness with Quinn threatens to come to an end.

But truth and friendship will help Sydney finally live the life she’s chosen while loving the one she chose. 


-MY REVIEW-
I don't read a ton of NA, in fact, I rarely ever read them. But guys, this was a good one. So now I can say that I have two favorite NA books! The Sheridan Hall series, and this one.

In this book we follow Sydney as she leaves her town, friends, and abusive ex-boyfriend, Grayson, behind for a new job. She is the new live-in-nurse for Mrs. McNamara, except Mrs. McNamara doesn't want one. So while Sydney battles with Mrs. McNamara, she doesn't expect to meet Quinn, and she certainly doesn't expect Grayson to to find her. 

Okay, I didn't think that I would like this book as much as I did! Let's start with the characters. While they weren't extremely developed, they were a lot of fun. Because in all honesty, when you have a shorter romance like this one the characters don't need to be exquisitely complex . But I was surprised by how much I ended up caring for some of the characters, especially Mrs. McNamara. While she was hard to warm up to, I ended up really liking her character by the end of the book.

This book had a surprising amount action! It started off like any normal NA romance, but then Grayson got involved. It was cool to read about Sydney's first relationship after her one with Grayson, and it was cool to read how he effected her relationship even after she broke up with him. 

So overall I loved this book! This is a fun, fast read with a good bit of action and characters that readers can connect with. This is defiantly a book to read.
