Love is a battlefield, and divorce attorney Sadie Howard is entrenched on the frontlines. She thought she might have met the right man once, but he was a career military guy who got shipped overseas and left her heart on the tarmac. These days, the only commitment Sadie wants is the one she's made to her Denver law practice.
Combat photographer Roman Dvornakov is back. Fresh out of the U.S. Army, he’s using family connections to snap photos at a few weddings while he builds his civilian photography practice. After all he’s captured on film, a few posed wedding shots should be a cakewalk. Seeing so much death through the camera lens, he’s now ready to build something worth living for. A thriving photography business, definitely. But he’s certain his new mission also includes Sadie, the girl who slipped away.
Sadie isn’t convinced, and she's not willing to open her heart anytime soon. Besides, she’s got a high-profile divorce case taking up all her attention. Winning the case for her client will make or break her practice. So what if it's a custody dispute over a ridiculously expensive fish tank? When Roman discovers the soon-to-be-divorced couple are still in love, he and his slightly-nutty grandmother, Babushka, are determined to convince them to cancel the proceedings. He’s not camera shy when it comes to matters of the heart, but interfering with Sadie's clients could wreck her career and any chance they'll ever have together...
|*** I received a free copy, arch of this book for an honest review***|
First, let me say thank you to the author and or publisher for the book. Second, thank you to the author for continuing with the characters of this story. Sometimes authors feel they need to change things up. Here though you still get a story along with the characters from the previous books and the humor that comes with the Dvornakov family loud and always in your business.
Here you have Roman Dvornakov and Sadie Howard. Sadie is Elis's sister and he and Roman are best friends. But one weekend Roman and Sadie spend the entire weekend together. Before she is to leave for law school and he is returning to the military. She tells him all the sweet things a guy wants to hear from a woman, but Roman says don’t wait for me to live your life and walk in the airport without looking back.
Sadie has done what he told her to do ten years ago to live her life and now she is a divorce attorney in Denver and is getting ready to walk down the aisle for her friend’s wedding. Happy for her friend she realizes she wants that marriage and family.
Roman is looking at Sadie and while he is to be taking pictures of the wedding, he can’t take his eyes off of her and knows now ten years later he made a big mistake in walking away from her. That day he knows he must come up with a plan to win her back. His plan includes the one person who everyone tries not to include his Babushka.
He also does not know that Sadie does not believe in second chances and so he is really behind the eight ball all the way around. With all of the high jinx that his grandmother causes along with his own this story will keep you turning the pages to see what happens to the next page. A very good book with very good characters.
