Genevieve MacKenzie has her life completely under control. About to wed the charming Chief doctor at the local hospital, she’s an up-and-coming surgeon with everything she could ever want. Until an escape through the church window on the day of her wedding sends her life into a tailspin…and flings her right into her best friend’s arms.
When Wolfe catches his best friend falling out a window on her wedding day, he doesn’t ask questions. He whisks her away, determined to watch over her and discover the truth behind her desperate escape. But when his feelings turn more than platonic, he realizes he may risk his most important relationship in order to protect his damaged heart, and the woman he loves.
Can Genevieve and Wolfe’s friendship turn into something deeper—or is it already too late for true love?

|I always love it when the title of the book is explained or mentioned in the story. I also love it when I see characters from the previous books appearing in the one I am currently reading and in this book I got the chance to see the characters from the Marriage to a Billionaire series and I will be looking forward to seeing them even more.|
Wolfe is a character introduced to us in the Marriage to a Billionaire series and soon became a fan favorite. Finally, he got the chance to get his own happy ending. That is if he can take the chance and not lose it because he is stubborn. Gen is the person that can make him happy and Wolfe is the person that helps remember who she truly is again after what her husband made her go through.
I liked how the author showed that a person can be abused by someone else, not from the fists but from the words and actions alone. Usually the heroines are physically abused, but this time it was mental and I think the author deserves a bravo for showing that aspect.
I don’t remember what was revealed about Wolfe’s past in the previous books so I won’t reveal anything other than the fact that we get to see Wolfe’s memories of some events of his past from his point of view.
Wolfe and Gen make a great couple together. My favorite part of the book is the time after Gen’s escape from the wedding and before Wolfe returns Gen to her home. The ending was simple and perfect and the epilogue was great. When I saw a spider the other day I remembered Wolfe and how he would have reacted if he saw the spider.Ending this review I would like to add that Arilyn and Stone seemed very intruding together and I will be looking forward to their story.
