This is an emotional read about second chances and letting go of the past. Mitch and Dez both have had some terrible things happen to them that they are not really over. Together they get to find the oeace and happiness they has been looking for. Its an entertaining read. Will definitely pull at your heartstrings. The story is very sweet.

A different kind of love story in that both of the lead characters are dealing with some form of loss. Dez Wright a photographer, lost her love in a motorcycle accident. She lost more which is explained and one way she coped with the loss of her love is by bed hoping. Now she has a booming photography career and has gone to a small town in North Carolina to see some friends and take pictures for them. While there she hears about a community center for kids and the couple she is staying with has her met the man in charge. Mitch Michaelson was a famous iron sculptor until one day in Hawaii he lost an arm and a women he thought he loved and she loved him. She could not be around him with only one arm. Going back home to Arden North Carolina he throws himself into healing but also turning the community center into a place for kids that need help. Now Dez would like to help by taking pictures and he agrees as long as he is not in any. Just like every book these two become an item and at the same time she does take pictures of him. Also he is dealing with helping a boy who is dealing with a father who has a drug problem, and then he notices that a local guy in town that he knows keeps eyeing Dez, like they were or are together. Now confused she must tell him about how she dealt with her grief. What he wants to know is what about him, and if they could be together?  Now confused she must decide what to do. A good story and good characters around the two main characters to keep the story flowing.

Loved this book very much.  It had just enough sweet, sexy romance and the storyline was great! I highly recommend!

Overall this was a book I didn't regret picking up, but the story and writing did not ensnare my attention, I found myself not eagerly reading each page but rather reading this in between other books I enjoyed much more.

Is a sweet story and both Dez and Mitch are overall likeable characters but this was just missing something.

Dez and Mitch are two flawed characters that I felt came together to make perfection.

Dez is a strong and independent woman that's really withdrawn from life in many ways after the death of her fiancee. She remains strong, just closed herself off from any future chance of losing out on love again. Mitch had a similar experience having been left behind by a woman. However, Mitch has suffered a betrayal from someone he trusted, now he feels less than and not capable to measure up.

I loved the first encounters of these try, the misconceptions and the obvious tension. Many times I laughed out loud at them dancing around one another.

This book takes on a few serious issues and I felt done so in a respectful and eye opening fashion. I found myself sympathetic to the struggles both Dez and Mitch faced, as well as Ti and his father. Staying strong in bad times as well as the good is Proof of Love.

I always enjoy a story with a wounded hero, so I liked “tall, dark, brooding” Mitch, although I felt I was missing some background information about him from the previous stories. 
Dual first person point of view rarely works for me and I think it’s one of the reasons my connection with both main characters was a bit bland.
There was a lot of sexual attraction between Mitch and Dez but it was too sudden for my taste and the touching, hugging and kissing too instantaneous.
Dez’s sexual persona seemed more odd than original, with her moves on Mitch coming out of nowhere and totally unexpected – but perhaps I’m missing something about her character.

Great read - I hadn't read book one in this series, but I don't think this mattered too much. This is the sotry of Dez and Mitch. I liked how it was told from both of their points of view. They are attracted to each other but both have had tragedy in their past which they are sruggling to get past.
