I could not put this down! This is a sweet romance that will touch your heart. Maya’s father takes an arranged marriage too far, estranging her from her family, and forcing her into the hands of a greedy man who doesn’t care whether Maya lives or dies. Part way through cancer treatment Maya discovers she won’t be able to pay the bills necessary to live. Ben is forced to hide his relationship with Maya from the press to protect her fragile health. Yet as the problems build, so does her relationship with Ben, a relationship that will save her life in more than one way.
This is a tale of boy meets girl in the most unusual circumstances. It is a marriage of convenience that is anything but convenient. It is a book full of screaming baseball fans and quiet hospital orderlies, both of which have a huge impact on the lives of the couple. Women ages 16-70 should enjoy this touching story of a life saved in an incredible way.
