Yearning Devotion by Rachael Orman


Gwen has had a hard life with many difficult circumstances that have made her a hard woman, who sometimes makes decisions others don't understand. Thankfully McKayla is in her life to help keep her grounded and is the woman who helps her keep her head when all else seems lost. 

Then one day, a man comes into Gwen's life that makes things take an unexpected twist and makes her face the demons of her past. 

Will this man help Gwen become a stronger woman or will it break her completely?

Gwen’s past was so heart breaking, I was instantly drawn to her wanting her to find her way in life and succeed. To have no family, been a victim of kidnap, torture, rape, abuse and then to find the only way to deal with it was to be a prostitute while trying to go to school and make a better life, she amazed me.

Cole, who is the kind of man it would be easy to fall in love with, had to battle against some terrible assumptions made about him, but I still wished he would have fought harder in the beginning to set the record straight. You gotta love a man who has no clue about her past but knows there is some deep trauma going and knows how to make her feel loved and special. Now I haven’t even mentioned how after a year he was still determined to find her and explain those assumptions were wrong.

McKayla is Gwen’s bestfriend/girlfriend. Yes I separated those two relationships because they are sexually involved, yet also best friends. McKayla had a past of her own that she was trying to over come and she was a huge support for Gwen. What I loved about this character was how much she loves Gwen and wants her happy, even if that means allowing Cole to become part of their relationship.
