Lacey Schmidt really surprised me with this book. I thought it was going to be a nice romance about the perils of internet dating and blind dates but it turned out to be so much more. Dr Augusta Stuart, child psychologist, wants to meet someone special to spend time with when she moves to Texas for a new job. Callia Alexana professes to be uninterested in dating and finding a woman she can love and who will love her. Their paths intersect professionally and through friends but they rub each other the wrong way, even though they are immensely attracted to each other. There are disasters, secrets and obstacles to overcome before they can ever hope to be together. This was a story of depth and emotion and I appreciated it more and more as I got to know the characters. Cal was my favourite as she had a vulnerability to her that tugged at my heart. Gus was the calm, patient and understanding one but had her own reasons for holding back. It was beautiful, romantic and very sexy and I highly recommend it.
