Even a broken heart has trouble resisting a Stubborn Love.
Emmie Hayes loved the beautiful Ashton Stirling deeply; nobody could deny that. She had given him her youth, and all he gave in return was misery and pain. She was ready for a new beginning, but Ashton wasn’t about to let her go so easily, even if it meant destroying both their lives in the process.
Three years later Emmie convinces herself she is ready to leave all of that heartbreak in the past and find a little piece of normal for herself. She heads to New York City to pick up where she left off, determined to finish art school. Emmie is determined to focus on school and not let anything distract her, but life has a way of throwing curveballs.
Paige, Emmie’s new roommate, brings Colin Bennett into her life. His smoldering eyes and lean muscular body are difficult for any girl to ignore. Only thing is, Emmie isn’t any girl. Her past makes her resistant to his charms. Colin isn’t one to give up easily, and just when he thinks he may have found a way to her stubborn heart, her tragic history may have found a way to tear them apart.
Brilliant book that captured my heart and kept my attention from start to finish. Wendy Owens tackles some difficult issues with sensitivity and raw emotion while at the same time giving us a touching story of romantic and unconditional love. Don’t miss out on this one it will make you cry and want to scream out at the realistic inner battles her heroine, Emmie, goes through, but it will also make you laugh and sigh at the love demonstrated. I dare you not to fall for her hero, Colin, (he is gorgeous, sexy, kind, thoughtful, protective, wealthy, respectful, patient, and yet down-to earth) or not to laugh at the sassiness that is Paige. Regardless the emotion and situations Ms. Owens wrote for her characters and in their story I felt the impact in my own heart as I was brought along in their journey. STUBBORN LOVE is a well-written, fully engaging and doesn’t slip your mind the minute you’ve finished the last page.
