We all make them. But when is a mistake too big to forgive? What happens when the consequences of our mistakes are so disastrous, they cause excruciating pain to everyone we hold near and dear?
San Francisco’s Dr. Morgan Drake makes one mistake. One colossal mistake that could cost him everything and everyone he loves—including himself.
When interior designer, Zoë Drake sees small changes in her husband, her investigations point to a mammoth problem. The happy marriage and great relationship they share quickly begins to evaporate. What’s worse—it’s all happening when Zoë’s going through some changes of her own—at a time when she might need Morgan the most.
With a husband who is at times completely absent, a child who increasingly blames himself for his parents’ issues, and a cryptic call that introduces the element of danger and fear, Zoë will soon realize that there is a painful side of love. As their world falls apart, will there be anything that can secure their bond, or will this chapter of their lives come to a catastrophic end?
The Painful Side of Love is a follow-up novella to Rebecca Rohman’s romantic suspense novel, Love M.D. If you like romance with a bit of steam, a huge injection of suspense and being taken on a roller-coaster of emotions, then this novella is for you.
I have quickly become a Rebecca Rohman fan and I’m sure after reading her books you will too. The Painful Side of Love was my second book to read by this author. Even though this book is a novella, so much emotion, suspense, and love is packed into this book. I would recommend reading the first book of this series Love, M.D., you will get more of a back story on all of the characters. This book would also work great as a stand-alone, as well.
The beginning of the book starts off with a chilling call to Dr. Morgan Drake from an unknown caller stating they know who killed his mother. Just from that one phone call Morgan, his wife Zoe, and son Adrian have their lives unravel. Morgan is a top notch surgeon while Zoe is an interior decorator, they have both worked hard to build up a name for themselves and live comfortably. Morgan and Zoe had a very interesting beginning in the previous book and seeing how strong their love and bond was in this book was amazing to read. In this book, we see Morgan break down and show his emotions and vulnerable side and Zoe persevere and stay strong for her family.
There is so much this family goes through that I do not really want to give much away. Seeing Morgan and Zoe be there for each other through thick and thin as well as try and stay strong for each other, you really get emotionally invested with these characters and feel the pain they’re going through. In between the family drama there are beautiful scenes of love amongst family and friends. I really enjoyed the moments in the book where family and friends were there for each other. You could really tell they were a tight knit family who really cared for each other.
If you are looking for a romantic-suspense with memorable and complex characters this book is perfect for you. Or if you’re looking for an amazing author, add Rebecca Rohman’s books to your TBR. You will not be disappointed. Her books will have you flipping page after page until the wee hours of the morning.
