Johanna MacDonald is a young executive. She was raised in the foster care system and is very independent. She has no intention of ever marrying or having children, but that all changes when she meets Luke.
Luke appears to be just like all the homeless drifters in Seattle. But he is far more than he seems. He really likes what he sees when he meets Johanna after filching breakfast from a restaurant buffet where she happens to be.
After a one-night stand with Luke, Johanna discovers she is pregnant. First angry and then ecstatic, Johanna concocts a plan to get Luke to marry her and then divorce her later. However, she does not bargain on him being the young billionaire Lucas Bryerson and is stunned when she finds out. They get married and begin falling in love with each other when it quickly becomes apparent on their wedding night that Luke has some serious mental health issues. Will their marriage survive his problems?
Johanna is a stunningly beautiful romance that proves that the capacity to love is limitless and that true love in a marriage is based on far more than sex. I could feel every aching emotional pain that Johanna felt as over and over she tried to help her husband but he seemed to get worse. The author did a fantastic job of explaining what severe anxiety attacks are and what can cause them, as well as what the best treatments for them can be. Luke as the emotionally broken but still strong man was a pleasure to read about. I really enjoyed the resolution of this book, and for that alone will read this book over and over again. This book will win awards, and you do not want to miss it!
