This is my first dip into this genre. I am an author myself and am keen to expand my reading experiences, was recommended this book, so decided to give it a go. I have no other romance books to compare this to but have given it a 5 star rating because it kept me interested throughout. That surprised me because I was not expecting to enjoy a book of this type. I liked Ellie as a character and found myself caring about her situation. I particularly enjoyed the descriptions and experiences about her work as a physio and the way it weaved in and out of the main story-line. As an Essex boy, the local references were a bonus. Thee author has done a good job in keeping a non-romance reading bloke hooked!
