oh my, oh my...
I'm trying to think for 3 days what to write here except for the obvious - AMAZING BOOK.
I loved everything about this book.
I love Ellen, I could absolutely understand her, how much she values her life the way she built it all by her self and the fact that she has to stay by herself to keep what she has built and also while staying alone she can have her life exactly as she want's her life to be, she has control.
Naturally, I love Caleb (though I have some issues with his name.. that's a name I REALLY don't like :D). I think that the fact that he stayed for so many years away from the his home town and family, somehow everybody expect him to be the guy whom he was before. That's exactly how Carly (Ellen's neighbor and also her brother's ex-girl) sees him. When he sees Ellen he falls for her immediately and he is determined to win her over, negotiating with her to let him into her life little by little. It's hard work but he knows exactly what he wants and he's not just a past soldier doing what he is told or waiting for orders. he's a smart guy who plays and wins the game with Ellen using "her" rules - she is the lawyer who's used to negotiating, yet he is the one that makes her lose every argument against him. even if it seems she has her hand on it, because she doesn't except his guarding job for her.
The book was wonderfully written. a pleasure to read. I read this book in 2 days, barely sleeping because I just couldn't put this book down.
I'm looking forward for the next to books! It seems that every book I read by Ruthie leaves me feeling it's the best romance book I've read! Till now I was thinking that "About Last Night" is THE best romance book I've read, but I'm having difficulties here.. because I think that this book just beat it! :D
