Christie is a young pretty girl who had a bad start. She had a accident and now is confined to a wheelchair. She has dated a little but it always ends, when the guy figures out she is different and can't do everything a "normal" woman can. She is angry and too proud for her own good. It is Christmas time and she is rolling home from the store. As she gets close to home Christie sees her neighbor Marcus. He is cute and is always running by her house. He always seems to give her a little wave when he notices her staring at him. Having trouble going up her ice covered ramp into the house, Christie notices Marcus out for a run He asks if she needs help? Marcus has been running by the beautiful Christies house in hopes to ask her out. But until now has never gotten up the nerve to ask. Will Marcus be the one to finally break through her tough exterior to reach her heart? Can Marcus accept her and all her issues and more importantly will Christie let go of her past and open her heart at long last?
Even though it is not that close to Christmas, not even Halloween yet! When I read the intro to this book I knew I had to read it. In most romances, someone is flawed in some way. It could be the way the hero or heroine sees ones self, or how they are perceived by others or a physical issue. What ever it is, they must over come something. This one is no different but the heroine has a true disability that I can relate to. My husband who is in a wheelchair has dealt with many of the feeling that Christie deals with. I see how stares can be cruel. But I personal can relate to Marcus. I know that even though a person has some physical limitations, doesn't mean they can't live a happy full life, with normal dreams and ambitions. This story was short but gives you just a glimpse into a woman's life, who hasn't really been living at all. Marcus, likes her a lot, not out of pity. He knows he can make her happy and he wants to be that person to do just that. I think that regardless of our own personal issues we need to live life the best we can. This book was a very good short read. I would have loved to see a longer version of it. That was my only complaint, I wanted to know more about the characters and even how there lives ended up.
