Today, she teaches graduate courses in health policy, law, and financing, and takes on the occasional consulting gig.Born and raised on Long Island, New York, she loves the water far too much to live inland.

My Review: I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It starts out with Gwen giving herself a pep-talk; she’s convincing herself that she’ll be able to go in the funeral home & slip an ultrasound picture into the casket. This story allows the reader to catch a glimpse of what it’s like to be an adult who was a foster child. I know I was easily able to relate to the feelings and attitudes portrayed by Gwen. Then there’s Carter, the sexy CEO of a multi-billion dollar sportswear company. He is the Sexiest Bachelor, in the DC area, and is always photographed with a new beauty at each charity gala that he attends. Amazingly, he and Gwen have an instant connections, but they have both been affected by their pasts. A constant battle takes place as they try to accept their blossoming love, in the end it all comes down to one major issue: are each of them ready to overcome their insecurities & and work to develop the potential love, or will they end up with a life of regret?
