I give this book a well earned 5 stars
This story starts with a credit card, an expired driving licence and one annoyed photographer. All TJ DeMille wanted was a few thing from the convenience store but when he got to the counter to pay for his items, he was rudely refused, because his name on his credit card did not match the one on his drivers licence. Luckily for him Gussie McBain, one of the Barefoot Brides owners was in the same shop and felt sorry for him and purchased his items, when she handed him them – he then told her he owed her a big favour.
Back at the Barefoot Brides offices a catastrophe was happening because their photographer had to go away to look after her sister at short notice and they needed one for an upcoming wedding. Hence the calling in of a favour.
TJ DeMille has been left guardian of his niece Alex after the death of his sister, TJ is a man who’s motto is ‘Always Alone’, so much so that he has it tattooed in Greek on his arm, so he finds it hard to be responsible for another person and he his struggling with his relationship with the grieving Alex, when Gussie turns up on his doorstep and makes his niece smile for the first time in ages, he agrees to anything she says, so that he can see his niece smile again. This is how the famous photographer ends up being a wedding photographer for an up and coming wedding for the Barefoot Brides.
The story continues with the past and present lives of these 2 characters, they are both lonely, frightened and scarred but together they bring out the best in each other.
