Synopsis:

Can two hearts entwined by hardship move on to form a healthy bond? From the author of His to Love and His to Protect, this tender, bittersweet romance brings together a man who loses everything—and a woman with everything to give.

  Chelsea Dwyer arrives home from her job at the middle-school library in Latham Hills, Michigan, expecting another quiet evening—until she hears the screams for help through her living room window. As the first witness to a terrible accident involving two local students, Chelsea doesn’t anticipate how her own life will be irrevocably changed by the father of one of the boys. In the wake of tragedy, she’s the only one who seems to understand his grief. Chelsea’s a survivor, too—and she knows that there are brighter days ahead.

  As a single father, Aidan Deveraux worked his entire life to provide a stable home for his son, Derrick. Without him, Aidan feels the deepest despair imaginable. The one thing that keeps him going is his connection with the woman who tried to save his son. Hard as he tries, Aidan just can’t stay away. Chelsea’s warm embrace is the comforting solace he desperately craves—and it doesn’t hurt that Aidan had noticed the beautiful librarian and wanted to ask her out for years. Now that she’s in his life, he doesn’t ever want to let go.

Review:


It was the middle of the night when I started to read His to Cherish.  It had been a particularly hard day with my toddler; she’s in the midst of the terrible twos and transitioning into a threenager.  And I was just having one of those days where I was wondering what the heck I signed on for.  Hoping to distract my mind, I opened my kindle and realized I completely forgot I had this review coming up.  So I dived in.  And was completely wrecked, totally gutted.  The story and my frame of mind created this perfect storm for a tornado of emotions.

Chelsea is amazingly sweet, gentle and compassionate.  I loved her heart, it’s big and generous.   She’s a little bit broken, but then again aren’t we all?  Aiden, my heart just broke for Aiden.  What he goes through is devastating.  And there’s something gut wrenching about watching a strong man brought low by grief.  Yeah he did some jerkish, thoughtless things.  But I can understand why.  He was going through a lot.  The character development was great and I loved the secondary characters.  This book is a part of the series but I haven’t read them.  It was easily read as a standalone but the other characters are so great.  I’m definitely going to have to go back and read the rest.


This is definitely a tear jerker and one to pick up.  I highly recommend it.  It’s brilliantly written, it kept me captivated.  Tons of feels wrapped up in these pages.  It’s a wonderful slow burn, friends to lovers story.  -Peace and Love, Buxom J

My review for this book is going to be short and sweet.
First and Foremost, If you have not read the previous books then you are going to get lost a couple of times. If you do what I did and do not realize you’re reading a book in a series you are DEFINITELY going to get lost and be page flipping back and forth trying to see where you took a wrong turn. However, that being said I still really enjoyed this book. I was anxious and on the edge of my seat the entire time while reading, once I caught up with what was going on. Stacey Lynn knows what she is doing folks! - Daddy L

Excerpt:

“Talk to me.”

I opened my mouth to speak before snapping it closed. Anything I had to say would make me seem like an overemotional, crazy drunk woman. I wasn’t prepared for that kind of humiliation. Thankfully I hadn’t drunk enough to make my filter disappear.

“I’m just tired,”I said to satisfy him. By his scowl, he didn’t believe me.

His tongue slid along his bottom lip, and I inhaled a gasp of air. I needed it. Perhaps the alcohol caused my lungs to stop working correctly.

His eyes darted back and forth between mine. I frowned, wondering what he was looking for and what he saw.

Did he see the insecure girl who had to continually say goodbye to everyone she loved but tried like hell to hide the emptiness that brought?

“You’re always there for me.”

My nose twitched. “It’s not a problem.”

He nodded slowly, just once. I watched something happen in his eyes and then looked down as he fidgeted on his feet, shifting his weight. He seemed nervous, which made no sense.

His hand on my chin moved slowly to the back of my neck, cupping me and bringing me closer to him. He was a breath away from me, his face so close to mine, when he roughly whispered, “But I haven’t thanked you.”

“It’s not necessary—”

His lips hit mine. My eyes flew open and I gasped, opening my mouth. Instantly, his tongue pressed in, circling my tongue and tasting me. Oh . . . my . . . gosh. It was like heaven and hell wrapped up in the prettiest package I could ever receive. Better than a blue box with a silver ribbon from Tiffany.

He tasted better than I thought he would—clean and crisp—and I leaned in, wanting more.

No, I didn’t lean in. I melted.

My tongue tangled with his and a moan escaped my throat.

It was that sound that had both of us snapping back to reality.

He pulled away and my mouth was still open, my brain working too slowly to process what just happened, how absolutely incredible it felt . . . and the look of regret all over his face.

“Shit.”Aidan’s fingers dropped from my neck and I stood on my front porch completely dumbfounded as both of his hands flew to his neck, clasping at the back. He looked up at the sky and gritted out, “Fuck.”

“Aidan,”I said, reaching out for him. He dodged my touch and spun on his heels.

“I gotta go.”
