It’s been two months since I moved in with Mickey Hart.
Here’s what I’ve learned:
1. 523 square feet is really f*cking small.
2. Sharing a bathroom is the worst idea ever. Especially when you’re a damn paraplegic.
3. Never lie. No matter what.
Oh, and one last thing...
I love her. More than ever.
Even if I'm still a workaholic. And stubborn as all hell.
Warning: Strong language, mature content, drama, and angst included. Shirt sold separately.
This novella is an adult contemporary romance featuring a disabled hero who (still) happens to be a rich and sexy alpha male with a potty mouth.
Cale and Mickey: Book 2 of 4
Real, bold and humorous! In order to really appreciate this story, you need to have read the first book Hart Broken. This novella is about one the main characters from that book, Cale. The story is told from Cale’s point of view with a few parts switching to Mickey’s and it is a very intense read. In this story, we get the nitty gritty about Cale’s insecurities and doubts. He is at war with himself and with war there are always casualties.
Cale is a great character but was not the most emotionally stable person in the first book. Being crippled has affected his perception of himself as a man which has led to some insecurities that affect his behavior. I am thrilled that Ms. Arcane did not try to make him stable just because he found love. Most authors make their main leads stable when they find their “other half” and somehow it always makes them “complete” and they become stable practically overnight. Well not in real life and not in this story. This story is about the next day and days that follow. This is about the reality that someone loves him and he is just does not know how to accept that.
I got to tell you that I am loving Mickey’s character in this story even more. She knows what Cale needs and is there for him 100%. When it gets to be too unhealthy she takes a stand but in her own way. Which is exactly what he needs.
So, what did I want more of? Well there were things brought up that were left open. Why was Dixon Rush contacting Cale? Was the accident on purpose? How did Mickey know Cale was lying? There is much going on in this story! I am hoping that in book three Hart of Hers that we find out the answers to those questions and more. Overall, fantastic read and I want more, right now!
