Were you picked on as a kid? Did you have issues with feeling less than pretty? If you said yes to either of these questions or both, then you will be able to relate to Dr. Marley Bakersfield. Even though Marley worked to change her weight and uses makeup as well as her bangs to hide a scar she got while riding her bike as a kid, she still feels the pain of her childhood. She was on the heavier side as a kid and was picked on mercilessly. Because she was constantly picked on as a kid, she carries internal scars that effect even into adulthood and she vows to return to her hometown as little as possible. That worked well for her until her dad needs her help with his surgical practice. While home, she not only runs into her childhood tormenter but also the one person who stood up for her back then. She has no plans on staying in her hometown any longer than is necessary to help out her dad, but will that change? Jill Boyce again does an excellent job of bringing her characters to life and making them very relatable. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes sweet romantic stories.
