There are things that are so hard to say aloud. Especially when it comes to something that you never thought your heart was capable of feeling…
In Ashton Bright’s life, there is no place for feelings. A successful surgeon, he knows how to make hearts beat faster, yet his own heart is as cold as a scalpel. He doesn’t know how to do romance, and he knows even less about love.
The day Nicola Holt comes to work as Ashton’s assistant, everything he believed was right for him becomes wrong. For someone whose everyday job is saving lives, Ashton finds himself too weak to stand against Nicola’s charm.
But most of all, he hates that she makes him feel things – the things he once swore to never allow himself to be submerged in.
“I have spent my whole life searching for what I have found in you. I do not want to let it go…”
I love Diana Nixon and all her books, some more than others, I’d be forever a fan of her Love Lines series, but in her romances until now it was Love Undone who had the medal. But it was before I read In a whisper, this book is beautiful, it talks about love, loss, pains of the past, forge ahead, forgive and forget.
I liked the story of Ashton, he feels guilt a lot and even if nothing was his fault, he feels guilty, it made him a cold man but an excellent surgeon. He’s arrogant and always gets what he wants, I like his stubborn side to Nicola, he knows how to tickle her and it allows having very pleasant scenes.
Nicola is also a character that I appreciated, she likes her job and she’s intelligent, she knows what she wants and especially what she doesn’t want but she’s struggling to resist the charm of the charming doctor. I love her breakdowns and her way to stand up to Ashton while knowing very well that it will crack because he’s annoying but irresistible. I appreciate her relationship with her sister and her future brother-in-law, Stella and James, whom we met in Set me free. Stella and Nicola have a real family relationship and I enjoyed seeing them together.
Between Nicola and Ashton it’s love at first even if neither of them admit it, we have the pleasure to read torrid and sensual scenes as Diana knows how to write them so well and my heart has passed by all emotions. It’s a romantic story, the love between the characters is inevitable and it’s the kind of love one would like to live one day. There is magic in this relationship, Nicola and Ashton are made to be together, and Diana is perfectly able to make us feel it.
I’m under the spell and I’m having trouble stopping to think about Nicola, Ashton and their story for a while, I’d even go so far as to say I don’t know what I’m going to be able to read after that that will put my mind in the same state. I must confess to you that towards the end of the book my tears have flowed, the problem is that I was on the train on the way to work and I had to wipe my eyes discreetly. So yes I am sensitive but anyway this story still messed up my feelings.
Thanks Diana for giving us a story like this one exceptional and full of love and hope.
Quick Word: A wonderful romantic story with two exceptional characters.
