Connor was only supposed to find Becky and bring her home. That is until he sees her in the airport and something sparks inside him. Something that hasn't sparked or did much of anything since his wife Linda died. Connor is a private investigator hired by Becky's family to find her. †She has been missing for years. Finding Becky is also a family matter; Leo, Connorís brother is married to Beckyís twin sister.
Becky is a loner and has been since her kidnapping when she was 8 years old, until Connor. With Connor, she does what she has really never been able to do, let go and begin to learn how to love. Itís not until their wedding night, two weeks after they first met, that Becky finds out that Connor is actually a private investigator. She doesn't let Connor explain, instead she runs out on him. Becky thinks that Connor is working for her obsessive ex-boyfriend Dwight when in fact he is working for her family.
After 18 months Connor finally finds Becky again to once again attempt to bring her home to her family and to him as well. Only this time around Becky now has Taylor, their 9 month old daughter. Together Becky and Connor need to learn to love and trust one another again for the sake of Taylor, hopefully this bond between them will be enough.
From the get go Becky and Connor are attracted to one another but for their own reasons don't want to become involved. I love how together, even though it is mostly through fighting and basic giving in, they are able to help one another out with their issues. You can feel the love between them even though they are constantly fighting against it.
I loved this book. It was quick but good read. I couldn't put it down. I will definitely recommend this book to others who want a satisfying book that reads like a novella.
