Socks It s the twenty first century You don #T HAVE TO BE NICE YOU CAN BE SMART # have to be nice You can be smart funny and sexy as hell and believe me that will be than enough Indeed I think it s fairly easy to give a character a disorderillness to explain their actions and create drama whether it be depression substance abuse PTSD etc I think it s much harder to pay the subject matter the proper respect and weave a believable romance into the mix This is a pet peeve of mine and Rebecca Rogers Maher never ets me downIn Tanya Rogers Maher crafts a gorgeous unflinching story of recovery guilt and redemption that never takes the easy way out but also never drowns in a sea

Autiful woman he thought he’d never see againBoth at a crossroads in their ives Tanya and Jack collide for one explosive weekend Will they choose the safety of past regrets or will they be brave enough to embrace the present together. .
