Dr. Jaden Monroe, a pediatric physical therapist, is the region’s expert in her field.  At Children’s Hospital, where she worked, she was trying to raise funds to build a new rehab wing and she was the driving force behind getting it built.  However, they were one million dollars short in having the necessary funds to get it built.  She had grown close to one of her patients, Cody, and ended up engaged to his father, who promised to give her the million dollars as a wedding present.  But when she called off the wedding, he reneged.  This led to a dispute with her boss, followed by Jaden leaving the hospital.  Now she is filling in as a bartender.


Though Adam Steele is a millionaire, there is something more precious to him than all his money…his daughter Emily.  When she was diagnosed with rapidly spreading bone cancer in her leg, he had to make the tough decision to amputate her leg.  Now all he wants is his smiling, happy daughter back…not the sullen, quiet person she has become.  After going through three therapists, there is still no improvement.  When he and his brother were younger, they lost their parents and were left in the care of their grandparents.  However, their grandfather was ill and their grandmother was kept busy taking care of him.  So the care of Adam and Tony was left to Adam, depriving him of a real childhood.  He wants Emily to have her carefree childhood, NO MATTER WHAT it takes.

 

One night, as Jaden was filling in at the bar, she noticed a handsome man who would not take his eyes off her.  Though flattered by the attention, she also could not help wondering if he was a stalker.  That is, until he, who she found to be Adam Steele, and his brother Tony approached her and tried to hire her as a therapist for Adam’s daughter.  Aware of her past, he offered to pay her one million dollars to teach his daughter to walk again in time to play the lead in the upcoming school play. Jaden, knowing this was the answer to getting the rehab wing built, could not turn him down.  So she packed a bag and moved into the mansion with Adam and Emily.  Though she found Emily to be angry and sullen about her condition, Jaden loved a challenge.  However, Adam is a challenge of another sort as he tries to seduce her and she finds herself falling for him.  As she works toward helping Emily, the desire between Adam and Jaden grows hotter and hotter.  Once Emily is walking again, will it be the end for Adam and Jaden?  Can she accomplish what the other therapists failed to do?

 

NO MATTER WHAT is a touching, warmhearted contemporary romance.  Watching Emily go from a sullen teenager to a happy young lady, who is ready to take on the world, is a thrill and the sparks flying between Adam and Jaden could scorch the page.  Adam and Jaden both had less than happy childhoods in which they felt abandoned by the adults in their lives, but they help each other overcome these problems. The well-drawn characters, witty, realistic dialogue, emotionally touching plot and sizzling love scenes make this story a winner.  Author Erin Nicholas brings the story to life in a way that ensures you will remember this story long after the last page is turned and the book is closed.  Make sure to grab your own copy of NO MATTER WHAT.  Do not miss it!
