He counts her smiles every day and night at the train station. And morning and evening, the beautiful commuter acknowledges him - just like she does everyone else on the platform. But Blake Hartt is not like the others...he's homeless.

Memories of a broken childhood have robbed him of peace and twisted delusions into his soul. He stays secluded from the sun, sure the world would run from him in the harsh light of day.

Each day, Livia McHugh smiles politely and acknowledges her fellow commuters as she waits for the train to the city. She dismisses this kindness as nothing special, just like her. She's the same as a million other girls - certainly no one to be cherished. But special or not, she smiles every day, never imagining that someone would rely on the simple gesture as if it were air to breathe.

When the moment comes that Livia must do more than smile, without hesitation she steps into the fray to defend the homeless man. And she's surprised to discover an inexplicable connection with her new friend. After danger subsides, their smiles become conversation. Their words usher in a friendship, which awakens something in each of them. But it's not long before their bond must prove its strength.

Entanglements from the past challenge both their love and their lives. Blake's heart beats for Livia's, even if her hands have to keep its rhythm.

Love is patient. Love is kind. Love never fails. Love never fails, right?

In an interwoven tale of unlikely loves and relationships forged by fire, Debra Anastasia takes readers into the darkest corners of human existence, only to show them the radiant power of pure adoration and true sacrifice. Complicated families and confused souls find their way to light in this novel, which manages to be racy, profane, funny, and reverent all at once.

    " Uhmmm.. This book kinda failed to catch my attention. It lacked d needed intensity & depth of emotion to get me hooked. I loved Beckett & Eve's lovestory more than Blake & Livia's.. Though i enjoyed some parts of d book, it didn't as much as convinced me to like it much more. "

    " This book is gorgeous. I went through a box Kleenex and laughed until I had a stitch in my side and I held my breathe on more then one occasion. I can't recommend this highly enough. So beautifully written. "

    " Ridiculously OTT. Sometimes that was good and sometimes that was bad. The overblown romance was at times cringe-worthy but Beckett's unbroken badass-ness was refreshing. Props to the author for tackling the story of a hero who is both homeless and damaged, but I think the illustration of his character could have been a little more subtle. 3 stars because I read the nearly 400 pages in a matter of hours. "

    " Loved this book! The way it was written was great as you were able to get a perspective from all the characters, allowing you a better understanding throughout the story. It had so many heart squeezing moments ah! Blake was so cute! Highly recommend this book if you love romance but are also looking for something a bit different :) "
