The one woman he wants is the one he cannot have.
Former foster kid Sebastian Grant has leveraged his intelligence and hard work to become a pediatric heart surgeon. But not even his career success can erase the void he’s tried so hard to fill. Then he meets high school math teacher Leah Montgomery and his fast-spinning world comes to a sudden stop. He falls hard, only to make a devastating discovery—Leah is the woman his best friend set his heart on months before.
Leah’s a math prodigy who’s only ever had one big dream—to earn her PhD. Raising her little brother put that dream on hold. Now that her brother will soon be college bound, she’s not going to let anything stand in her way. Especially romance . . . which is far less dependable than algebra.
When Leah receives surprising results from the DNA test she submitted to a genealogy site, she solicits Sebastian’s help. Together, they comb through hospital records to uncover the secrets of her history. The more powerfully they’re drawn to each other, the more strongly Sebastian must resist, and the more Leah must admit that some things in life—like love—can’t be explained with numbers.
This book was so good y’all….😍I absolutely loved everything about it! The characters, plot, and writing style just blew my mind. I honestly did not know how this book would play out, but I really love how Mrs. Wade wrote it! I was captured from the first page and I was not released until the last, which I could have honestly had gone for another few chapters to be honest, lol.
The characters in this book were so well rounded. Although I did not relate to Leah, I was instantly drawn to her strong character. I loved how she was independent but not to the point that it got super annoying the whole book. I do have to admit that she was slightly annoying at times when Sebastian was trying to pursue her, but I understand why she was that way. It always is fascinating for me to read books with a main character who is a math genius, because I most definitely am not, so that was one aspect of her character that I loved being able to read about!
Now onto the best character in this whole book, Sebastian. He was such a great character, my word! I know that there really are no guys like him in the real world (hence why he is fiction)…but he was so amazing. I love how protective he was of Leah and how actively he pursued her. He is seriously just a great guy plus he seems great with children….😉
I have to admit I really, really need a book for Ben. He is such a sweet heart and I really want him to find love!! Also, Luke needs his own book, which I think Mrs. Wade was slightly setting him up for one, which makes me so EXCITED!!!
Overall, I really, really enjoyed this book. I loved everything about it and I cannot wait to read about this amazing characters in upcoming books!!
