Two hearts drawn by hope, linked by love.
All Quinn Lawson wanted was to find her brother. Separated after their parents perished in a drunk-driving accident, Quinn has been searching for him since she became eighteen. She is closer now than ever, but it is her last lead.
Gunnery Sergeant Kevin McCaluson has a choice to make, stay in the military or step away and try life as a civilian. With no family and no prospect of one, Kevin wonders if he can leave the only family he has ever known for the life he’s always dreamed.
So, you say you like brilliantly scripted characters who pull you right into their story? Let me introduce you to Quinn and Kevin.
If I’d known them in real life, I would have set Quinn and Kevin up on a blind date. These are the types of characters you want to read about because they are good people who deserve happiness. Ms. Romine did a top notch job of getting me on their side in the first few chapters. It’s hard to say which one I liked more.
Quinn is still dealing with the pain of her parents’ death. Ms. Romine's writing stirs emotions in readers so they emphasize with Quinn when she goes looking for her brother. Then Kevin walks into her life. Quinn has been so focused on finding her lost sibling she hasn't taken the time to consider she might need someone to watch out for her.
Kevin is also at a crossroads in his life. When these two souls meet nothing’s quite the same, which was nicely portrayed by the author. The dialogue is natural sounding and the pacing perfect for making this a quick read on a winter’s night.
This is romance at its finest because you know the characters are going to find their HEA. It's the journey they take, including the past that brought them to the point of meeting, that will keep you reading. If you’re looking for a feel good story, full of steam, heat and characters you’ll like, I recommend A Snowflake's Chance in Hell.
