Cody Roberts is an action hero in the movies, until one morning he goes to a convenience store for coffee and thwarts a robbery, saving the teenage clerk and a woman named Jen. What follows is a journey of healing and discovery for Jen and Cody.
The thing that surprised me about this book is, there's no conflict between Cody and Jen. They don't have even so much as an argument or a difference of opinion through out the entire story. There is nothing keeping them apart. Plus, Cody is a great guy. He's generous to a fault, sweet, kind, and sensitive. His only problem happened prior to the start of the book. He lost his parents and went on a downward spiral that was chronicled in all the tabloids. He's in the process of making a new movie that he hopes will jump start his career again. Jen is also a really nice person as well as a talented cook, seamstress and is good with plants. She even takes in a stray puppy she finds in a gas station. Her best friend is Maria who runs a successful coffee shop. Jen's only issue is a controlling father who has mapped out Jen's life without any input from Jen herself.
A wonderful hero and heroine, with no conflict SHOULD make for a really boring book, but it doesn't. That right there was the biggest surprise. I couldn't put this book down. It was a fantastic read.
