Can a man who resents the hand he’s been dealt and a woman who spends her days grateful for every little thing find true love in each other’s arms—or are their differences stronger than both of them? Find out in this funny, sexy, heartfelt romance, and fall in love with Grant and Jules on the sandy shores of Silver Island, home to coffee shops, boat races, and midnight rendezvous.
Even war heroes need a little help sometimes…
After spending years fighting for his country and too damn long learning to navigate life with a prosthetic leg, Grant Silver returns to Silver Island to figure out a future he couldn’t fathom without fatigues and a gun in his hand. He’d almost forgotten how a man could suffocate from the warmth and caring community in which he’d grown up, and if that weren’t bad enough, his buddies’ beautiful and far-too-chipper younger sister won’t stop flitting into his life, trying to sprinkle happy dust everywhere she goes.
As a cancer survivor, Jules Steele knows better than to count on seeing tomorrow. She doesn’t take a single moment for granted, and she isn’t about to let a man who used to be charming and full of life waste the future he’s been blessed with. She’s determined to get through to him, even if it takes a few steamy kisses…

Bellamy has some interesting friends. The author will get you laughing before the first chapter is done. So, make sure to clear your calendar just to be on the safe side. You’ll want to get comfortable and not put this down until the last word is read.
Jules wants what she wants in order to make someone happy. How she goes about it is another laughable moment. Our author makes the comedic moments seem as if they come so easy to her. Grant is a man who served his country well. Ms. Foster does a great job in showing the reader how frustrated he is about the hand he has been dealt.
There is a scene where Jules is at the beach and she seems to have an epiphany about the setting – and I feel the exact same way. Our author is very smart at using the little things for the reader to connect to. Even though you may have some tough things going on in your life, family and/or friends may be there to lift you up.
This was a great book on so many levels. It checks off all the boxes for romance in general. But then you can include military, disability, rom-com and small town. If you enjoy the holidays, you’re even given a little bit of that. And if there was a category for frustrating males, this would be at the very top. If you’re a fan of the holiday Hallmark movies, this would be a perfect fit. But maybe keep a tissue close by.
