“Life’s greatest treasures will never be held, purchased, or bartered for. They will only be felt.”
Parker Bale has is a gentlemen is all respects. After graduating college and beginning the exhausting search for a job, he’s offered employment, unlimited expenses, and a new BMW by an extremely wealthy eccentric stranger. His new job?
Finding a woman to love. Not a particular woman, but he must look in a particular place. And he must sign a contract. Eagerly, he signs the contract without reading it.
Victoria Fisker’s father died immediately after her birth. Her bed-ridden mother’s addiction to pain pills requires her to be at home every moment she isn’t working as a prep cook. She has never been in love, nor does she feel loved at home. She doesn’t particularly trust people, has no faith in the male species in general, and lives a quiet life keeping to herself.
When Parker meets Victoria, he’s immediately intrigued by her lack of interest in people and her comfort in being alone. Victoria, on the other hand, only recognizes Parker as being a male and believes therefore he can’t be trusted.
Finding Parker’s characters embark on a journey. A journey in which they soon realize they’re finding love where they least expect it. Love for friends, love for family which may not be blood related, and for that one person…
The one who gives you reason to believe for the first time love just may actually exist.

5 stars and more…
This is the most beautiful story I have ever read. It’s a happy story, you just feel happy when reading it. It might also be the most romantic story ever.
The characters are incredible, you will fall in love with every single one of them, I don’t think I have ever liked all the characters in a story and I did in this one.
The author took me by surprise with a big twist that I did not see coming at all. It was an important part to the story and I really loved what he did with it, he made it a secret between Parker and Kenton and even though I was dying because I wanted Victoria to know I was glad the author chose to keep it a secret.
*A little bit of a SPOILER ahead*
The story might make you cry, even if you know something important is coming since the beginning of the story, you just know because it’s right there, you might still cry. I knew it was coming, you might not know who, but you know someone will not make it in the end and you prepare yourself, you know someone is dying but still when it happens you cannot stop your emotions, you have already fallen in love with that character and you can’t help but to cry. I cried, a LOT, I tried to prepare myself for what I knew would be a very sad part in the story but I couldn’t stop myself from ugly crying.
The story will give you many emotions but mostly you will feel happy that you read such an awesome book, trust me.
Oh and I must say that this story has NO sex, at all, not even a little bit, it was good for a change.
This is the perfect happy story with a happy ending. Loved it and will recommend to all my friends.
