About this ebook

Nash has been struggling to get back on his feet after his last set of surgeries. He pushed for a transfer to Hathaway House on an old friend’s recommendation and finally made it there—after multiple frustrating delays—only to find that he isn’t ready for the strides he hopes to make in the new facility.

To add insult to injury, on his first day at Hathaway House, he comes face-to-face with Alicia, the only woman he’s ever loved and the last woman he’d want to see him in his current condition.

Alicia let Nash go more than a decade ago, unwilling to settle for a long-distance relationship with the sailor, certain that her future would bring other dreams and other loves. But, when her brother fell ill, all her dreams shattered. She devoted herself to nursing him and, after his death, to helping others.

Seeing Nash again is both pleasure and pain. The rapport between them is instant, as if the years apart had never happened. But, if they couldn’t make things work back then, when life was bright and new, do the people they’ve become in the years since have a shot at a future together?

Yet another beautiful story in the amazing Hathaway House series. Nash and Alicia were an item for a long time until life got in the way, Alicia wanted to follow a career in design and Nash was determined to join the navy. Neither thought that a long distance romance would work so reluctantly but amicably, they split. Life dealt both of them a duff card, Alicia was to give up her dream of design in order to nurse her beloved brother Jerry through nine years of cancer until his untimely death. Alicia continued in nursing in the hope that she could help others in a way that she couldn't help Jerry. Nash's dream to be transferred to Hathaway House was hard fought for and an agonising wait. After sustaining life threatening injuries when an IED exploded Nash knew that Hathaway House was his best chance of recovery. Hathaway House is a rehabilitation centre specializing in the treatment of military personnel, it's wonderful staff treat patients holistically, each having their own team and their own program. When Nash found that Alicia was working at Hathaway House and was on his team he was both delighted and nervous, what would Alicia thing when she saw his once athletic body now broken ? Alicia also looked to their first meeting with trepidation, what would Nash think of the once vibrant, fun loving Alicia who was now a troubled soul, wrecked with guilt ? The team at Hathaway House, from owner Dani, physio, Shane to Dennis from the kitchen were determined to heal both Nash and Alicia. The romance was rekindled through this heart warming story, the long meaningful conversations and the psychology are so well written.

I loved how Alicia and Nash had a strong past but after parting ways had both been through a trauma, one mental and the other physical so even though they are different on a deep level they got the other is going through a lot. I did feel this book was more even split with time between Alicia and Nash and I liked it as in this instance they already had a personal relationship in the past and it was more on them working on themselves as well as learning who the knew them was. When Alicia sees Dr Simmons it just breaks your heart and you see how much she has held in and let break her, while seeing Nash see life isn't over and not only is he making such great gains with his recovery (while getting some good nudges from Shane and others) he see he has a lot to give and still to do in life and that future includes Alicia.

I really enjoyed reading Nash . This story is wonderful and the characters are fantastic . Nash finally arrives at Hathaway house after several delays . He is surprised to find Alicia his ex- girlfriend from his younger years they split up when he decided he was going in the Navy but they never stopped caring about each other . Alicia never got the opportunity to go into fashion like she planned . Now she's a nurse at Hathaway House . Nash and Alicia still have that chemistry and they both would love to reconnect . They each have healing to do but in different ways . Maybe they can build a life together now that they have experienced life . This story is well written and heartbreaking and heartwarming . I highly recommend taking the time to read . I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
