by Aubrey Rose (Goodreads Author)One kind deed can change your life forever...
Brynn Tomlin could never afford to follow her heart. But when she sees a stranger shivering in the snow outside of the college library, an inexplicable urge leads her to buy him a hot cup of coffee. It's just a small act of kindness, a few words of conversation. Brynn should be focusing on her finals, after all, not on the man who looked up at her gratefully with piercing blue eyes.
He could have been anyone - a janitor on break, a graduate student, a bum. But the man standing outside in the cold turns out to be Dr. Eliot Herceg, one of the most brilliant minds in mathematics and heir to a fortune. After years of reclusive isolation, he now finds his heart awakening to the kind girl whose name he does not know.
Brynn has spent her life trying to forget her desires, and Eliot's deep wounds have taken nearly a decade to heal. After so much hurt, will either of them be able to open their hearts again?

We were just two broken people, half-mended, struggling to make sense of the world as best we could.
I had not a lot of expectations when I picked up this book but I was pleasantly surprised with it after reading it.
Brynn was a girl who is struggling with the loss of her mother and all she wants is to go visit her burial plot in Budapest. With her being on her own she has no way to get there expect via her exceptional math skills and the chance to win an internship.
Elliot is a man hiding from his past and has closed his doors to love until a random meeting by a sweet girl her breaks past his emotional barrier.
This random meeting turns out to be the key to Budapest and the chance for Brynn to find out answers from her past.
Elliot and Brynn's journey to be together is a bittersweet journey with trials and tribulations that they can finally overcome and take a risk on love.
It was a sweet story and left us with a HFN ending but we all know fairy tale endings come with a price. There are secrets left unturned and drama on the horizon that we will get to see in book 2.
