Review ~ Difference a Day Makes, The (Perfect, Indiana #2) by Barbara Longley

Ryan Malloy has lost it all. After his fiancée dies in a tragic accident, he enlists in the army, only to lose his best friend in a roadside bombing. Wracked with guilt and grief, Ryan finds life unbearable—until a job offer from his former commander gives him a glimmer of hope. And in the tiny town of Perfect, Indiana, the man who thought he had nothing left to live for meets the only woman who can tempt him into risking his battered heart one last time...

Paige Langford has it all: wealth, beauty, and ambition. Yet when her boyfriend’s betrayal leads to the loss of her job and her reputation, she retreats to her brother’s rural Indiana home to regroup. There she meets Ryan Malloy, a gruff, hard-drinking loner whose surly temper can’t hide the haunted misery in his eyes. He is everything Paige never wanted, yet he may be exactly what she needs—if only they can overcome their personal demons to forge a love strong enough to save them both.
Paige and Ryan come together, two people who were not expecting to find love. Ryan never thought he could have a permanent attachment to a woman, after the death of his wife. He has lots of demons including a heavy dose of PTSD; due to barely surviving the roadside bombing that killed his best friend. Paige's career driven attitude makes her seem shallow and uninterested in a social life; especially not after her latest lead to getting fired. She is motivated, charming, and brilliant but naïve – this was a little annoying. I like a heroine who does not take any crap from anyone. However, the author redeemed Paige by making her caring and understanding, especially about the hero's "issues."

Includes a Sneak Peek of A Change of Heart (Perfect, Indiana, #3) ~ Ted Lovejoy & Cory Marcel; Coming October 2013.
