What Love Sounds Like - Alissa Callen
This has such a genuine Australian feel to both the setting and language that I just fell in love. It was so real. Mia and Kade are a great romantic couple ... and saying why would introduce spoilers into this review! Rats. Um, let's just say they're both survivors, but people take different paths.

The pacing of the story made the growth of their respect and love believable. Not just "Wham!" attraction. The attraction was there -- and how! -- but they also felt like real people, and that was the secret to this story that made me smile and cry and genuinely enjoy the journey.
