Mark: 4.5/5

Lily hasn´t always had it easy, but that´s never sropped her from working hard for the title she wants. She´s come a long way from the small town in Maine where she grewr up — she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily´s life suddenly seems almost too good to be true.
Ryle is assertive, stubborn, and maybe a little arrogant. He´s also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily, but Ryle´s complete aversion to relationships is disturbing.
As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do the thoughts of Atlas Corrigan — her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened.

Well, now, I have to say that this is the third book of this author that I read. It isn´t the book that I´ve liked the most, but so far, is the one which has made me think a lot.
This book is easy to read, but I read it in almost a week, since it made my really, really sad (and most of the time, also mad).

Lily promises herself that she won´t ever be in an abusive relationship, but everything changes when the person who hurst you is the one you love, so she keeps forgiving him, thinking that he does it unintencionally.
That made me think of how difficult it is for us, women, to recognize that we are being abused. How difficult it is to get away from your abuser when he´s the person you are in love with, how you must never say never, because you don´t know what the future has prepared for you.
Lily ended up being abused, even though she said that is she ever is in that kind of relationship, she will break it as soon as she can.

Summarizing, if you like love stories and you want to learn a lot, you MUST read this book.

"In the future... if by some miracle you ever find yourself in the position to fall in love again... fall in love with me."
