Reba had a high power, high stress job and unfortunately 4 years ago when she met Todd her job was the dominating force in her life. 4 months later Reba had a heart attack and she had to give up her job for her health. Now living with her friend Hope, Reba has had to completely start over and still struggles with her health. Hope recommends the alternative treatments offered at Healing Hands but Reba knows that means seeing Todd again.

Todd owns Healing Hands, a natural healing center, which helps people lead healthier lifestyles through alternative methods. When Todd receives a call from Reba out of the blue he can hardly believe it. After all Reba is the one who got away. Todd believes that everything happens for a reason and isn’t willing to let Reba get away twice.

This story was good but a little too long for me, which is a surprise because usually I have the opposite problem. The plot moved really slowly and really the book could have ended 50 pages earlier if some of the superfluous sex scenes had been cut. I like a hot read but basically all Reba and Todd did together was either talk about Reba’s health or have sex. It got incredibly redundant. There wasn’t really enough meat to this story for it to be the length it was and it really started to drag to the point where I was becoming incredibly fed up with Reba and just wanted her to do something. This was still a pretty good read and if you’re looking for a story with a lot of sex and not a lot of substance this is the book for you, but if not I would pass on this one.
