Juliet St. Clair has spent her life under Hollywood's spotlight. While being America's favorite girl next door has had its perks, having to testify against her stalker to put him behind bars certainly wasn't one of them. But when she thinks about walking away from it all, she can't help remembering the enormous pile of medical bills her family is drowning under. Bills that just keep on coming.

Felix Donovan had it all--stunning good looks, gorgeous women, and a spot as the drummer to a band that's sitting pretty at the top of the charts. Until one life-altering decision left him paralyzed from the waist down. He doesn't know whether to laugh or cry when he wins this year's Sexiest Man award, but the one thing he immediately does is send out a Non-disclosure agreement. Hiding his condition from the public is hard as hell, but he's not ready to face the world while he's still struggling to accept his new reality.

Except this year's Sexiest Woman--Juliet St. Clair--never looks at him with pity, only desire. But falling for Juliet means a permanent spot in the tabloids, a decision Felix isn't sure he's ready to make. And when Juliet's stalker re-emerges from her past, Felix's secret isn't the only thing at stake, it could cost Juliet her life.

Just what I'd been hoping for - a beautiful romance featuring a disability - but with so much more. Felix has been adjusting to paralyzed life after an accident, maintaining secrecy, while still continuing as drummer for his band. Juliet has secrets of her own, but continues on as a sought-after lead actress. When the Sexiest Man and Sexiest Woman meet, there's an instant connection. I loved how non-judgmental Juliet was. She really was sunshine and rainbows. She's the friend you'd want to have around to always put a positive spin on things. And she's exactly who Felix needed to part the clouds that were loitering around his head and get him to see the beautiful life he still had to live.

I fell in love with Juliet and Felix right along with them. They were a beautiful couple, inside and out. They filled in all the gaps and missing pieces the other had. Their tenderness and love was apparent. Unfortunately, Juliet had a stalker, and this stalker was ruining her life, and thus ruining Felix's. The author set the stage well for this stalker problem, building the suspense. And while I figured out who the stalker was, I still didn't know how it would all turn out and how they would catch this person. And with that, how all this stalker craziness was ultimately going to affect their relationship. But in the end, I loved Juliet and Felix all over again. The end made me smile. This story had a little bit of everything I love. Plus, I found Felix's bandmates fascinating, and now want to read their books.
