A dying wish.
After years of loneliness, widowed Gabriella is ready to fill the void—as long as she doesn't have to give her heart to another man.
Caleb's screwed himself right into a dead-end existence. Faced with an ultimatum, he's hell-bound on changing his reckless ways.
A chance meeting has these two instantly attracted to one another, but when their paths cross again—this time as professor and student—the roles reverse on Professor Edwards as Caleb teaches her how to feel again.

Review Copy provided by authorThere are some books that I read and I can write the review pretty quickly afterwards. Feel Again was not one of those books as it honestly sat heavy on my heart after finishing the book.
Ms. Andrews hits us hard emotionally with this book from the prologue on. September 11 is my generation's Pearl Harbor or JFK assassination - if you lived through it, you remember where you were that day and reading Gabby's experience brought all of that right back for me.
This was a rare experience where I could connect fairly strongly with both of the main characters. I could easily put myself in Gabby's shoes. I could also relate to the emotional challenges Caleb is dealing with and I loved the instant connection between these two. Ms. Andrews does a wonderful job of showing how fragile both Gabby and Caleb are when they meet and how their relationship helps both blossom.
My one complaint has to do with the professor/student relationship set up. It was an interesting vehicle to bring Gabby and Caleb back together after their initial meeting and it provided an additional source of conflict with his delusional roommate, but it also added a sense of deception that I wasn't comfortable with.
Overall, I connected with Feel Again and was so glad to see both of these characters get the second chances they deserved. I am hoping to see more of them in future books in the series.
