Gwendolyn Sinclair is in trouble and only Xavier St. James can help her. But in return for his help, Xavier asks for her to be his for seven days. Seven days that is all he is asking for, so little yet so much. Can Gwendolyn give herself to Xavier? Is she willing to risk her heart?

I fell in love with this story. Gwendolyn and Xavier make a wonderful couple. Xavier lost everything in the blink of an eye and has closed himself off from everyone including those that care for him. Gwendolyn sees past his bravado and sees the man he truly is, not the monster he claims to be. She has no problem with his scars; inside or out. She will fight with everything that she has to show Xavier that he truly deserves the love that she longs to give him. I admire the courage and strength that Gwendolyn has. She has gone through so much in her life and is still standing tall. I was happy to see her grab and fight for what she has always wanted. Watching the relationship build between the two made for a beautiful read. No matter how many walls Xavier builds up Gwendolyn is always there to tear them down. The two must not only figure out just where their feelings will lead them but they must also learn to accept and heal from each of their pasts. The love that the two share is a wonderful thing to see and it shines in everything that they do. I was pulled into their story right from the very start. The author weaves a beautiful love story that is full of emotions and depth. Gwendolyn and Xavier are both deserve so much and I loved seeing them fight for their happiness that has eluded them for so long.
