His to Cherish by Stacey Lynn

Can two hearts entwined by hardship move on to form a healthy bond? From the author of His to Love and His to Protect, this tender, bittersweet romance brings together a man who loses everything—and a woman with everything to give.

Chelsea Dwyer arrives home from her job at the middle-school library in Latham Hills, Michigan, expecting another quiet evening—until she hears the screams for help through her living room window. As the first witness to a terrible accident involving two local students, Chelsea doesn’t anticipate how her own life will be irrevocably changed by the father of one of the boys. In the wake of tragedy, she’s the only one who seems to understand his grief. Chelsea’s a survivor, too—and she knows that there are brighter days ahead.

As a single father, Aidan Deveraux worked his entire life to provide a stable home for his son, Derrick. Without him, Aidan feels the deepest despair imaginable. The one thing that keeps him going is his connection with the woman who tried to save his son. Hard as he tries, Aidan just can’t stay away. Chelsea’s warm embrace is the comforting solace he desperately craves—and it doesn’t hurt that Aidan had noticed the beautiful librarian and wanted to ask her out for years. Now that she’s in his life, he doesn’t ever want to let go.

Chelsea is there for Aidan when he is struggling with one of the toughest parts of his life. When his son dies during a horrible accident, Aidan struggles to do just normal, day-to-day things.

Chelsea also takes Shane under her wing – he was Derrick's best friend and with him when Derrick died. She helps him see through his grief, but not without help and not without setbacks.

This story is fraught with emotion and pain. Despite that, it was written beautifully. There is so much going on, but at the same time, everyone is following one pattern – grief.

Chelsea allows Aidan to simply be – he doesn't need to perform with her – he can work through his emotions in his own time. Chelsea does see that he's struggling and tries to help him. And, despite being kind and allowing him time, she also points out when he needs to be strong for Shane.

Shane is struggling with everything that happened, and despite Aidan saying that he would always be there for him, both Shane and Aidan are struggling with that commitment. Shane takes all of the blame and Aidan puts blame on him too.

The relationship between Aidan and Chelsea develops organically and despite it, at times, being slow, I like to think that it was a real relationship. And while there isn't a lot of heat between the two characters because of all of the emotions that are swirling around, their relationship seems very realistic.

Overall, this was an emotional rollercoaster, but with a great story woven within.
