A forbidden romance.
A wounded Marine who thinks he's beyond saving.
A girl who's determined to prove him wrong.

Didi Monroe's waited her whole life for the type of romance you see in the movies, so when Hollywood heartthrob Zac Ridgemont sweeps her off her feet, Didi believes she might finally have met the one.
While Zac's away filming for the summer, Didi begins her internship at a military hospital in California. There, she meets wounded Marine Noel Walker. Frustrated on the outside and broken on the inside, Walker's a pain-in-the-ass patient who refuses all help.
Yet Didi can't help but be drawn to him, and though he's strictly out of bounds it soon becomes impossible to ignore the sparks flying between them.
As the attraction simmers into dangerous territory, Didi finds herself falling hard for a man she knows is going to break her heart. Because Walker doesn't believe in love or happy ever afters. So what possible future can there be?
Then tragedy hits, shattering both their worlds, and Didi is forced to choose between fighting for love or merely falling for the illusion of it.

I was a bit torn with this read . . . While I truly enjoyed the first part of the book, I have to admit towards the end it all felt too rushed and there were a few misunderstandings that seemed a bit childish. What I really liked were the minor characters, I felt more connected to them than with the main ones, even though I did like Walker. Didi is another matter entirely . . . What she has running on with Zac is not the relationship readers are lead to believe, one moment she’s strongly against having any kid of contact with him and then, all of a sudden, she’s all quite happy to meet him. Based on her thoughts and feelings, that sudden change doesn’t make much sense and I was under the impression that from that very moment she started acting younger than she actually was.

Despite those issues, the writing wasn’t bad, I had a few laughs thanks to some great side characters and the plot was good. I just think things were predictable in the end, and with a better character development I would have probably loved this book.
