* This is a companion novel to A Cry For Hope and can be read as a stand-alone. 
In A Cry for Hope you meet Jamie’s carefree younger brother, Will. Now read his story… 
Will McAdams is a New York City firefighter who has always lived in the shadow of his older brother, never quite measuring up to his parents standards. He lives his life without regrets, and answers to no one. The women love him and he uses that to his advantage, making it clear that he only has one use for them. 
Gabby Spencer is a nurse in the burn unit of a busy New York City hospital. Her guarded personality doesn’t allow many people into her life and her patients take the place of her lack of family. She masks the pain that she is harboring deep inside with quick wit and sarcasm. 
When Will becomes one of Gabby’s patients they form a special bond and soon become each other's solace. But Will doesn’t see her like every other woman in his life. She means the world to him and he feels an underlying need to always protect her – most of all from himself. Even though he wants her more than he’s ever wanted any other woman, he’s not willing to take that next step and jeopardize everything they have. When jealousy and pain begin to overtake their once perfect friendship, will Will's fear of falling in love and never measuring up, cause him to lose the one and only woman to ever own his heart? 

When did Beth Rinyu disappoint me with her books? Never. Yep, never. And this one? Such an amazing read. Again. This is not one of those instalove books that will give you a thousand questions on how everything happened in an instant. Plus, Beth Rinyu's characters were always so realistic that the readers can easily relate with them. I never had a hard time connecting with her characters. The feelings and emotions always flow instantly from the book unto me.

Will and Gabby's story is about a sweet friendship that gave way to a meaningful, true love. Will is a firefighter. A sexy firefighter that was brought to the hospital when he was injured during one of their missions. Gabby was the nurse who was assigned to look after Will during his stay at the hospital. Friendship bloomed between the two of them. They really had a great potential to be lovers, but there were two problems. Will doesn't do relationships, while Gabby had a boyfriend and she's living in with him.

"For the moment, they were all I need to temporarily help me block out some of the pain. Even though I had just met this girl, I already knew that she was an angel."
Gabby was being abused by her boyfriend, and Will just didn't want this to happen again. He can't let this continue. He helped Gabby get away from her ex, offering her to move in with him. No attachments. Not your typical friends with benefits kind of story. Just friends. Gabby hesitated at first but she had no choice so she gladly accept Will's offer. They had so much fun together. Well, I had so much fun with them. I really like the way they get along with each other. Looks like Gabby is my favorite woman among Beth's characters! She's funny, witty, sweet, caring, loving, and definitely knows how to handle awkward situations. She's the perfect woman every man needs.

"He would never be mine, not in the way I wanted him to be, and I wasn't sure how much longer my heart could handle being around him each day knowing this."
Mixed with family matters, Beth Rinyu once again proved how strong her characters are. How they can stand up with their own feet, be independent and show the world what it takes to be strong. This book will teach you that you can always make your own decisions and choices. Not because other people tell you that something is good for you means that you should do it. You'll always be the one who knows what'll be good for you and what will truly make you happy.

I just love A Will To Change. I love every chapter, from the beginning up to the ending. A story of family, friendship, love, hope, strength and courage -- this book has it all, all you need to fall in love.

Ever since I can remember, I have always enjoyed Creative Writing. There was always something about being able to travel to a different place or become a different person with just the stroke of a pen - or in today's world a touch of the keyboard. I am the author of The Exception To The Rule, An Unplanned Lesson and Drowning In Love (releasing July 2013).

My life is not as interesting as my books or the characters in them, but then again whose life is? I was born and have lived in New Jersey my whole life. I'm a mom of twin teenage boys, a teenage stepson, a crazy Border Collie and a cat with an identity crisis! I guess you can say writing is my form of Calgon! I am married to a wonderful guy - but we'll keep that between us, I don't want him getting a big head! 

Thanks for taking the time to learn about my books and me! If you decide to read them (and I hope you do!) please be sure to go on and review it for me - yes, even if you don't like it!
