officialsynopWhen Marine veteran Nash Ware walks into the library where shy librarian Betsy Bobbin works, she’s intimated by the handsome man who wears an eye patch and an attitude. Her car has a flat in a storm and Nash comes to her rescue. A fight outside a bar between an angry Nash and a drunk frightens Betsy. She’s fallen for him but is it safe to fall in love with a wounded veteran with PTSD? Betsy is torn. Will love and trust win out over her fear before it’s too late?

Nash has found the girl of his dreams, but his wounds run deep. His ex-fiancé was repulsed by his eye and his eye patch, and manufactured drama like bees do honey. However, real drama surrounds Betsy, when a stalker comes after her sister.


I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. Somehow, in between pages, I found myself liking Betsy and her shy demeanor. Librarian Betsy Bobbins had this fear issues with stalkers, until her sister experienced it first hand. But what really made me love her is her passion in reading. A girl after my own heart. I love how the character of Betsy Bobbin found solace in her library, behind book spines.

Nash Ware (oh beware!) was a Marine with an eye patch who helped Betsy in her time of need. That alone made me want to hug him, he’s such a sweetheart. I hated her ex-fiance who dumped him just because his face got disfigured. Ugh…

Debra Parmley got me hooked in reading and checking out this book. A feel good story that had me smiling in the end. This is a great afternoon read or late bedtime story!
