Sometimes appearances deceive. Take me, for instance. I look like a respectable doctor with his shit together, but the rural Montana mental hospital I work at is actually a sanctuary from my demons. At just thirty-five years old, I’ve already failed on an epic scale. Treating patients at Hawthorne Hill is part of my atonement.
I’ve found peace when a new patient turns me inside out. Allison Cole is a beautiful, haunted survivor who fell into silence after witnessing a murder. But even without words, I’m drawn to her. The closer we get, the more I’m tempted to cross my professional boundaries and give in to my desire.
Soon I find myself in a desperate race to put the pieces of Allison’s silence together. Her life becomes inextricably entwined with mine as I fight to save the second chance I never thought I’d have. I’ll break whatever rules I have to in order to protect this woman who’s been to hell and back. For her, I’ll do harm.
Every fucking time!!! Whenever i pick the book i think i’ll like the least from by tbr list, i get a huge slap in my face, because it turns out to be amazing! I found this one on KU and i borrowed it a very long time ago, and i ignored it for as long as i could.
I don’t even know how to review it. Our heroine has witnessed her twin sister being murdered and now she’s a patient in a mental hospital where our hero is a doctor. She refuses to speak or communicate with anyone, but falling in love and starting to trust Daniel, turns her life around.
The story is full of surprises and things you won’t see coming. The suspense was killing me! I had to read it in one sitting, since it’s not the kind of book you’ll be able to put down.
