My Image of You 
by Melanie Moreland
A globe-trotting bad boy chases the one that got away in this addictive novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Contract.
My name is Adam Kincaid, and I’m the best at what I do. After losing my parents, I decided to follow in their footsteps, and now I’m the most daring freelance photographer in the world. Maybe some think I’m a loner, but I don’t care. All that matters is the shot: braving danger and devastation in search of a single image with the power to tell someone’s story. But as good as I am, accidents happen—and thank god for that, because it’s what leads me to her. . . . Alexandra Robbins. My nurse. My savior. With her fiery red hair and crystal-clear blue eyes, the camera loves her . . . and I have to have her. We soon find that we’re perfect together. We just fit, physically and emotionally. And yet something isn’t right. Something from her past is haunting her, and no matter what I do to help her break free, I lose her. Today is the day I try to win her back. Not only do I need an explanation, I need her in my bed once again. I don’t just want a damn picture—I want her. Because what we have is a love that never fades away. . . .
This sexy standalone novel has no cheating, no cliffhangers, and a guaranteed HEA—but Adam works hard to get it! Includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

4.5 Stars

My Image of You is a stunning novel by Melanie Moreland. With descriptive, flowing writing and heaps of emotion, Moreland tells the story of Adam and Ally, the kind of couple people call soul mates, if only her parents would allow for it. Adam lives for the thrill of being a daring freelance photographer, he's known across the world for his photos of war zones and natural disasters. When he wakes up in the hospital and meets Ally, the nurse on duty, he finds something new taking up his thoughts. He makes it his mission to know her, finding more happiness in her than he ever found behind the lens of his camera. Her family is part of upper-class society though, only a doctor would be good enough for their Alexandra, and they'll stop at nothing to keep Adam and Ally apart.
Talk about complex characters, even the secondary characters have history and personalities that drive the story line forward. My Image of You has the sort of characters you feel like you've met in real life. Ally is sweet and endearing, a perfect example that you are not a direct reflection of your upbringing, while Alex is alpha, jaded, but more than willing to fight for what he believes is right. I love his career and his dedication to not just photography, but to helping Alex experience a life she'd been so sheltered from. They're from opposite sides of the spectrum, raised completely different, but their chemistry and compassion is so similar. Their relationship is made up of all those cheesy moments readers love, because we want them for ourselves. They're the ideal and though Adam and Ally have to fight to be that way, their relationship is magical...at least for a time.

"'Mine,' I whispered, my breath blowing over her cooling skin.
'Yours,' she replied. Nothing, and no one, was going to change that. Ever."

More than the romance and the chemistry, I really enjoyed that Moreland gave so much weight to the struggles Adam and Ally faced as a couple. Family issues and distance caused by a career is real, this happens in people's lives all the time, and these moments are massively significant to how a relationship works. It would have been so easy to gloss over these moments, consider them a bump in the road, but it was more than that and the reader can feel that in My Image of You. You could feel the character's physical pain as they missed their counterpart so much. Then there was the twist, it was magnificent. The prologue gives a brief glimpse, but it has nothing on the events that takes place over the course of several chapters. It's shocking, a deceitful disintegration of a beautiful romance. The broken pieces of Adam and Ally will make your heart hurt, but Moreland gives readers what they want, characters that fight for what they want.

"All those months summed up in one, beautiful, frightening word. Adam."

I really enjoyed My Image of You and I think romance readers will fall in love with this new Loveswept title. Melanie Moreland gives readers a captivating love story and made me fall in love with Adam. I can have him now that I finished the book, right?
