The copy I received of the first book in this series was not a full book, so I will leave it to others to review that book. I did read books 2 and 3 in the series.

Book 2, In Her Hands, is a continuation of the story between Trevor and Porsche Roemer after an accident that has left Trevor wounded as much psychologically as physically. He believes Porsche is dead, his belief reinforced by being unable to contact her family in Idaho, the location of his copper mine where the accident took place. However, Porsche is still alive, but in a coma, and she still plays an interesting role in this story. I enjoyed the way the author wrote her character along with the other characters in this book.

Unbeknownst to him, Porsche’s sister, Mercedes, becomes Trevor’s physical therapist once he returns to his home in Las Vegas. As much as the two interact, it seems strange they don’t make this connection, but they are both very private about their feelings regarding Porsche.

Meanwhile, the relationship between the two of them grows. There is a lot of sexually suggestive dialogue in the book—some of it might be typical since Trevor is a young man worried about how he as a paraplegic appears to women. Beyond that, the issues of dealing with health care employees coming into his home and the details about his therapy were interesting, especially in light of his doctor’s  suspicions about the true nature of his disability. I found that even though I did not read the first book in this series, there was enough information in this book that I could read it as a stand-alone without feeling lost because I hadn’t read the first book.

Book 3 in the Live, Love and Repeat series, His Choice, continues the story of Trevor and Mercedes. Some of the same characters from book 2 were also present. It continues Trevor’s progress with his physical therapy he receives from Mercedes, plus he chooses to take more responsibility in his own recovery. He also resolves the true nature of the feelings he had for Mercedes’s sister, Porsche, and his sense of guilt over her loss.

I found the characters engaging in spite of there being quite a bit of sexually suggestive dialogue. It was interesting how the author dealt with the relationship that grew between Trevor and Mercedes. He wished to return to his mine in Idaho, and she refused to return for any length of time to the home where she felt she always lived in her sister’s shadow. And, although Porsche has left her earth life, she still plays an interesting role in this three-book series until the end.
