What Matters Most

What Matters Most (Harlequin Heartwarming)Jillian Hart
Contemporary Romance

"After all, lost hopes weren't fatal."

Ben McKaslin is home, injured from his high-risk position in the military.  Aside from a few visits, it's been fifteen years since he's been back in Montana.  The memories buried here are almost as painful as his leg.  Thankfully he's only here for a few weeks - surely he'll survive it for that long.  Or so he thinks until he meets up with Cadence Chapman once again - the only woman he ever loved.  Cadence can't believe that Ben is back.  So much has happened - to both of them.  They aren't the teenagers looking for fame and freedom anymore.  But can someone reclaim what they once gave up?  Or are they doomed to re-break their hearts once again?

My Opinion: I felt that this book was, in a word, boring.  And not because of the emotions and feelings which were good.  It's just that...nothing happened.  I could count on one hand the number of events that occurred.  It seemed to just revolve over their regret for the past and their continued connection.  There was no work for forgiveness, reflection on if they should have done something different, no working towards falling in love again.  Just reflection on their lonely but decent lives since they were apart.  Don't get me wrong, but the emotions are all there and pretty well conveyed, but I couldn't get into it without more events.

I received a free copy of this book to review.  Not other compensation was given.  The summary and opinion are 100% my own.
