Can love lost be found again? In Can't Stop Loving You this is what happens when one sacrifices love in order to keep her family intact.
Arabella (Bella) comes from a very strong Italian family who believes in the old school values. Her father is the head of the family as her mother passed away. Bella is very protective of her brother and has been a mother figure for him. However, Bella falls for Roman Spikonos in high school and must deal with the consequences of young passionate love. Just Roman's name makes me want to swoon, so you can imagine what it will do to Bella once she sees him again.
Twelve years have passed and Roman returns to Mirror Lake to run his grandfather's orchard, which is right next door to Bella's father's nursery. Bella is now a psychologist, but is helping her father for the time being at the nursery also.
They meet again at Bella's cousin's wedding and sparks fly between them, but the past remains between them. Lies and secrets must be told before both can heal and go forward, but how will Roman get Bella alone?
I enjoyed the flashbacks to Bella's and Roman's past as it gave me a glimpse of their lives and the feelings they had for each other and the tragedy that changed their lives.
I was also given a look into the lives of the some of the other Spikonos brothers and I can't wait to see what Miranda has in store for them.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves second chances and a HEA.
