Book Summary:

“I'm not sure what possessed me to do it. Maybe it was the impossible expectations I faced,
maybe it was my own self-loathing. But I just knew I needed something different to happen. I
needed someone...something...to derail me from my current path. Otherwise, I would become
lost...a hollowed out shell of a man. So I did it. I approached her, then I pursued her, then I made
her mine. And my life was saved...”

Ryan Burnham is the privileged son of a U.S. Congressman and captain of his university’s
hockey team. While he is on the verge of fulfilling his dreams to play in the NHL, his parents
want him on a different course. One he is expected to accept for the sake of his family’s public

Forced to abandon her music career after the heart breaking death of her parents, Danny Cross
exists on the opposite side of the tracks from Ryan. She is struggling to make her own way,
working two jobs, attending college part time and volunteering in a homeless shelter. She is on a
mission to build her own success.

With a chance meeting, their vastly different worlds collide, causing each to evaluate whether
they are truly on the correct path to self-fulfillment and happiness. Can their relationship
survive? Particularly when others are against them every step of the way. A lot can happen in
just ten short days...

Our 4 star review 



     Ryan opens my car door for me and takes my hand. We walk together to my apartment
door and I'm looking for my keys in my purse, all of a sudden nervous. A minute ago I was ready
to jump in bed with Ryan, but now, in the harsh fluorescent light of the hallway outside of my
apartment, I'm faced with the uncertainty of a relationship with a man who is so different than
     Putting his finger under my chin, Ryan tilts my head up to his and says, "Don't."
     He knows I'm doubting this and that tells me a lot about how perceptive he is. Before I can
respond he pulls me to him and kisses me...hard. And every thought flies out of my head.
     My hands snake up his chest and wrap around his neck before slipping into his hair. It's
as soft and silky as I had been trying hard not imagine. Our tongues are swirling...stabbing...and
then my teeth grab his bottom lip and bite. He answers me with a guttural sound that vibrates
from his mouth into mine.
     Without breaking our hold on each other, Ryan pushes me one step backward until my
back is pressed into my door. His hands graze down my sides until they reach my hips. His
fingers dig in, pulling me tight against him and I can feel his hardness. I am drowning in Ryan,
or maybe he's downing in me by the sounds of his ragged breathing, I do not know. I just know I
have never been kissed like this before and something warm is unfurling in my chest in response
to this passion.
     Ryan finally pulls away slightly, breathing hard against my mouth. "Jesus, Danny."
I don't think Jesus has anything to do with the explosion that just happened between us but if He did, I'm heading to church this weekend to thank Him.
