Justin has been hiding his whole life. First from the guilt of his sister's death, and then from his power over water and then from his undeniable attraction to his best friends fiance. But now that Mandy is single again and better after her scare with cancer, he's ready to claim her heart the way her ex did not.

Mandy was happy, she had a great life and a wonderful fiance and they were ready to start their lives together. But then she was diagnosed with breast cancer and when her fiance found out he decided he didn't want to marry her anymore. Now a year later she's finally better and ready to move on but not really in the way Justin wants her to.

Together they discover their love for each other and battle to keep their hearts and them selves safe from outside forces. And Justin struggles with having reveal his secret to Mandy before they can really enjoy a life together.

This was a great book! Such a sweet story of two people meant to be together and their struggle to finally get there. Both characters were very strong and very independent and together they are just perfect! I really really liked how much emphasis she put on Mandy's struggle with breast cancer and not only that but the struggle of the people around her too. She showed the truth of sickness, that not everyone can or will handle it. That it almost always weeds out the people who aren't true friends and keeps the ones who are closer. Justin's ability was really cool, almost made me want to have it. To have that much control over something so immense, gives me chills thinking about it. And for someone with that much power, he's such a humble person. He doesn't use it for anything but good. The only part of this book that I didn't like was Mandy's reaction when something bad happened. If you've read the book you know what I'm talking about, if not you'll know when you get there. Other than that, I loved this book.

Even though I consider this book a paranormal romance (and not everyone likes PNR) this book straddles the line between PNR and regular contemporary. So in my opinion someone who might not like PNR would probably enjoy this book. It's full of love and laughter and it also has conflict and sadness. A perfect combination for a great read to me. I'd recommend it to any and all romance lovers! I give this book 5 stars!

Happy Reading
