    was a cute xmas novella Both characters had a nice depth and independance I could appreciate And they both seemed like normal, no nonsense people What I really liked about it was Mac s past I don t know why but military backgrounds seem to always give a depper layer to a character, especially one that leaves him permantly injured I feel like they arerelatable and real I guess His struggle with his injury and the way he dealt with his pai was a cute xmas novella Both characters had a nice depth and independance I could appreciate And they both seemed like normal, no nonsense people What I really liked about it was Mac s past I don t know why but military backgrounds seem to always give a depper layer to a character, especially one that leaves him permantly injured I feel like they arerelatable and real I guess His struggle with his injury and the way he dealt with his pain was both wonderful and made me feel sorry for him at the same time I loved the art aspect of his therapy, just perfect outlet for his trauma Devan was sweet and brave She didn t give up, even when things started to get hairy She had a great head for business and what she lacked in knowledge she made up for in passion and talent I loved how she accepted his help and then grew to care for him She even seemed to miss his grumpy butt when he was absent And when he was being difficult she didn t give up on him I m definitely going to read the next one
