Ned Matheson is sharing a house with the woman he loves, but he can’t kiss her, or even touch her. In fact, she can barely look him in the face. He knows he needs to be patient; Fila Sahar has been to hell and back as a captive of the Taliban for over a decade. Now she’s safely back on American soil, but her fears hem her in so tightly, she might as well be a prisoner again. If he wants to marry her—or even date her—he’ll have to help her regain her courage. He thinks he’s found the perfect way for her to become a strong, independent woman—he’ll give her a restaurant of her very own to run.
Fila can’t believe she’s finally home, or that a handsome cowboy like Ned cares for her, but before she can give her heart to any man, she has to find the courage to stand on her own two feet. When Ned surprises her with his perfect solution—the restaurant he’s leased and renovated in her name—she’s overwhelmed—with fear, not gratitude. She can barely leave the house, let alone run a business. So when Ned’s father sends them out of town to check on the family’s remote hunting cabin, she’s grateful for the delay.
Ned knows his father hopes this trip will split them up, but he’s determined it will bring them together instead. When disaster strikes, all bets are off. Ned will learn what it’s like to be helpless. Fila will have to recover the courage she lost years ago.
Can they survive the weekend? Or will this trip be their last?
My Opinion 5 STARS
**ARC Provided by Netgalley and One Acre Press for an honest review**
Wow.... You really gotta love the bravery and strength of Fila in this book. She really does not crumble with anything that is thrown at her in this book, instead, she womans up and takes on and deals with a lot more than most people can handle.
Ned really shows a soft side in this book even though hes not well through most of it. He pretty much always thinks of Fila and what she must be thinking, but he doesnt let her feel sorry for herself. He helps her come to terms with everything. They really do make a lovely couple.
I'm really hoping that Mia and Luke's story is just as good.
