Blurb : From the author who brought you That Kiss, That Promise, I Will Catch You, and Tracing Hearts, comes another tale of love and loss.Elora Foster and Logan Turner never met, until the day she showed up on his doorstep. After a simple, chance encounter, the two embark on a journey that will change both their lives forever.
With good intentions and a heart of gold, Elora has aspirations of being a nurse. But, when she’s hired to take care of Logan, a double amputee, she’s instantly put off by his grouchy demeanor and bad attitude. She’s not sure if taking this job was the right move, or the worst decision of her life.
Logan, who was recently released from the hospital, has no intention of letting anyone take care of him. He’s sure there’s nothing that could change his hopeless situation, so he resigns himself to his fate. When he meets Elora, instant friction begins, but soon, he realizes there’s something different about her. Try as he might to behave himself, he finds that his negative attitude upsets her frequently—and to his surprise, it bothers him.
As time moves on, the two become more acquainted, and strong feelings begin to grow, but a road block threatens to derail any relationship that might develop. Just when they think they’ve found a way around it, their lives take a turn for the worse, and they’re both faced with a gut wrenching decision which has the potential to tear them apart.
Can she save this lost soul? Can he get over the past enough to see she’s the one? Can they work through the worst problem they’ve ever known, or will the strain be too much?
Review : “When Love Breaks” was my first book by Kate Squires and I think if she continues to write books about these kind of “lost Souls” it will not be my last.
Basically I loved everything about this book and there are only some small facts that prevented it from being a 5 star book.
One was – that no matter how well developed the story was and how much potential it had – by some for me unknown reason It did not make me cry – and as I have told many times before only a book that makes me laugh out loud or that makes me cry will get 5 stars
The second thin was – the “road block” ( I am using the word from the blurb on purpose to avoid spoilers) felt a little farfetched to me so I had a little problem in finding my own way around that.
But casting those points aside it is a beautiful written story with just the kind of plotline that I love and I would really love to recommend this book to anybody who thinks from reading the blurb that this book might be for him.
