After dumping her cheating fiancé, caring for her sick dad, and nearly being crushed along with her car during a violent storm, she’s pretty much at her breaking point. If anyone needs some luck, it’s Jordan, but the last thing she wants is gorgeous Nick Rinaldi, her landlord’s grandson, hovering over her while she nurses a bad cold. The wounded Navy doctor seems too good to be true… which means he probably is.
Nick Rinaldi left the Navy broken and adrift, wondering if he would ever practice medicine again. When his grandparents’ tenant is almost killed by a falling tree during a storm, he discovers Jordan is not only in shock, but suffering from pneumonia. Not one to miss an opportunity to play white knight, Nick arrives at her cottage to take care of her during the storm… But the lovely teacher has a a fierce independent streak, and as he learns more about her, he wants to do more than merely help.
Can Jordan and Nick let go or their separate pasts and seize their future together?

My Rating: 4 stars
I enjoyed You Send Me, although it is true that this couple really needed to get out of their own way before they would find that special place for each other in their lives. It probably can’t get much worse, aside from a fatal illness, to discover the man you are to wed… tomorrow… having a very lively and involved sexual experience with his secretary. Being told it was no big deal was perhaps the icing on the incredulous cake that Jordan got served. She’s now officially off of men for the foreseeable future and her walls have come crashing down and locking into place.
Once Nick was a Navy physician stationed in Afghanistan. An injury ended that career and now Nick is still healing, in many ways, from the physical and mental trauma he experienced. Those skills come back into play when he discovers his grandparent’s tenant out in a storm, obviously suffering from pneumonia. Nick may not be certain where his professional career is heading now, but he cannot walk away from Jordan when she needs him.
Jordan has so much going on in her life right now. And after the stunning ending to her wedding day she really isn’t looking for romance. Nick is at loose ends right now, he isn’t back to his full health, he doesn’t know where his career is going and the attraction to Jordan couldn’t have come at a worse time. It just seemed that they did a lot of thinking about why they couldn’t really be a couple, and they were their own worst enemies often. Yet, I did enjoy their romance, so I went past the slower parts and simply enjoyed the overall story.
The Compass Cove series is entertaining, love the legend of the compass showing up in the stories. I’ll be keeping an eye out for the next book in this series. If you love a Romance with people who sometimes don’t know their own minds but are so right for each other then you’d like You Send Me.
