When Sarah lost her husband Jake at Afghanistan, it was Ethan Jake’s best friend who stood with her and helped her raising Kylee her daughter. When there was a call for a father daughter dance, it was Ethan who dances with Kylee. It was always Ethan who Sarah turned up to whenever she needed someone. But things get not so smooth when Ethan realizes he has feeling towards Sarah as more than best friends. Sarah seems to reciprocate it but she is haunted by the guilt of moving on from Jake. Ethan has his own history of being from dysfunctional and broken marriage.
Things get messy when there is a serial rapist at large, who is obsessed with Sarah. Ethan can not bear to stay as just a friend to Sarah anymore but he has to be around her to keep her alive until the killer is caught. What does it take for Ethan to overcome his demons and reconcile with Sarah? Does Sarah realize there is enough place in her heart for Ethan and still can love Jake as she always has? And how do they catch the smart, intriguing and creepy killer?
My favorite character was Ethan easily, the macho guy with a sensitive kind. I loved how he was with Kylee, though I wondered which 6 year old talked like she did. I hated how Sarah and Ethan played the cat and mouse and was fervently hoping they would get together already. Beyond the romance angle, I was really interested on the serial killer. He more than intrigued me with his stalking and art of sending messages – Yes I am weird like that.
Bottomline – Catch it if you love – heart warming love stories!
