This story was a clean, sweet romantic story that progressed at the right pace. Rori suffered from phobias stemming from her father's suicide and its aftermath. She couldn't be in crowds or around the paparazzi because they had been so incredibly horrible to her family after her father's death. She had founded an animal rescue and hides away from the rest of the world, with the exception of her best friend, Savvy, her brother and her mother and stepfather. Graham is a very successful racecar driver who has formed a foundation with some of his wealth to help support organizations that rescue and rehabilitate abused animals. When he shows up to check out Rori's place, she mistakes him for being a vet who has come to help with the birth of one of her llamas. He is so taken by surprise that she doesn't immediately recognize who he is, that he goes along with the lie. He begins to appreciate Rori and her character and who she becomes with her animals. He loves the fact that she is his friend and isn't looking for a handout from him or judging him by the size of his wallet. These two have much to overcome and learn but their story is one of patience and love and understanding and turning to God for answers. I highly recommend this book if you are looking for a story that warms your soul and celebrates true love. I was given this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
This is one of the best books I've read in awhile. You could feel the struggles Rori had with her severe social anxiety. It took the never-giving-up love of a good man and her renewed relationship with God to help her heal. I highly recommend this book!
good book as fiction ,but in terms of inspiration it was ok.the whole star and media thing is not something everybody can relate
I did enjoy this book but I also found it a bit predictable. Despite this I still found it to be a good book with well-developed characters and a good storyline. If you want something simple and happy to read then this is your book.
Rori Harmon hides away from the outside world after the media fallout following her celebrity father's death. She has centered her life around her animal sanctuary, avoiding everyone except her best friend, brothers, mother, and step-father. Graham Decker is a successful racecar driver and philanthropist but unlucky in love. His ex-wife married him for his fame and fortunes then left him for a rival driver. Rori and Graham's paths cross when he drops by to check out the sanctuary for a foundation grant and she mistakes him for an on call vet. Graham starts volunteering at the sanctuary in order to spend more time with Rori. Both main characters were well developed and their inner dialogs and interactions with one another were relatable and endearing. All the animals throughout the story added a measure of comfort and humor. I had no idea llama's hissed. I love how protective and thoughtful Graham is and my favorite Rori characteristic is her honesty. Overall the story was sweet, funny, and encouraging. I recommend it! I was given the opportunity to read and review this book by NetGalley. The opinions expressed are my own.
