How far would you go to save the one you love?

Reporter Skylar Kendall has run from commitment all her life, pushing people away before they leave her, until her niece worms her way into Skye’s heart and settles in tight. Skye relaxes into a career she enjoys and relishes being a doting aunt.

Then her niece becomes gravely ill. Unable to bear yet another loss, Skye is determined to find a cure, but the girl’s only hope lies in the embryonic stem cell therapy Michigan Senator Edward Hastings repeatedly opposes. When Skye fails to find alternative treatment in time, she vows to end the senator’s political career.

Curious about the woman behind the scathing articles on his best friend, Mark Dutton pursues Skye. Dating Mark gives her access to Hastings’s life and secrets that would launch Skye’s career and satisfy her need for retribution… Only she hadn’t counted on falling in love.

Can she avenge the lives lost to politics at the expense of her new love and friends?

My Review:

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions in this review are 100% my own.

This is a great book club book. It’s the type of book that can be discussed in great length. It would be interesting to hear other opinions on the hot button topic at the heart of this story.

Skye has had a lot of loss in her life and runs from commitment. That all changes when she meets and falls for Mark.

Mark just happens to be best friends with their local Senator that is against embryonic stem cell treatment and research. Skye feels if the Senator wasn’t so opposed to it that state funding would be more available and it could have possibly saved the life of her niece.

This is the type of book that touches you emotionally on so many different levels. It makes you stop and think, what would YOU do in this situation? Would you do anything to save a loved one, even if it went against your beliefs?
