What I liked: What happens when you to go do a report on chat room romances? Well Rebecca meets Jake and then it seems all her former troubles fade away, including those of disastrous and manipulating ex-husband Nick. But Jakes has a past of his own, as rendezvous begin, they can't help not be apart from each other. Will Rebecca stay true to her newspaper article or let herself fall for Jake? Will Jake be able to live with his past and move forward with Rebecca? I really enjoyed this read from start to finish. I loved the characters and how their lives unfolded in front of me as a reader. Pearce does a fine job of fleshing out the characters, dialogue, and plot of this gem of a book. You will fall in love with the story and believe that love is worth saving.
Jake Korte is emotionally broken. Angry. Hurt. Worthless. Fearing that he will become the abuser his father was, the last thing he needs is a woman in his life. He feels like a virtual time bomb just waiting for the internal explosion. So when tiny Rebecca Saylor “chats” her way into his life and then crawls under his skin, panic descends. He can’t seem to stay away, but is terrified to be with her.
After surviving an abusive marriage, Becca isn’t looking for love, only safety. But through her research for her column “Chat Addiction”, she meets Jake, who is anything but safe. He’s the one man who can make her feel alive again. But can she overcome her own fears to claw her way into the heart of a man so fractured?
