Amy was in the midst of trying to spice things up, to bring life back to their boring marriage. It seems now that she was too late. 


As Amy sits with her head between her knees, trying to figure out what to do next, a call comes from Mercer General Hospital. The ER nurse is telling Amy’s answering machine that Wesley has been in a car accident. 



When Amy arrives at the hospital, she finds her husband in a coma. The doctors say there is no sign of brain damage, and Wesley will eventually wake up. Relieved, Amy sees this as her second chance: the chance to get it right this time. To channel the girl Wesley won’t leave when he regains consciousness… She just needs some help to pull it off. After all, she was voted girl most likely to die a virgin in high school. 



Amy would never figure on getting that help from Mark Reilly…Wesley’s doctor! He’s a non-committer, too-cute-for-his-own-good bachelor, and completely the guy Amy begins falling for. It’s a race against time to see who wakes up first—Amy or her husband.

A life changing event that gives a woman another chance to find herself with someone who loves her for her.



Characters:


Amy: Her husband gets in an accident and is in a coma. She's been doing everything she can lately to make herself attractive to her husband since he told her he was leaving her after 4 years in a note. So while he's in a coma, Amy decides that reinventing herself for him will make her attractive. So she enlists the help of her husband's doctor, Mark Reilly. As she continues to become the women she thinks her husband wants, she begins to fall for Mark who doesn't want her to change herself, because he likes (more like loves) the woman she is.

She realized that the break up her husband left. Yes, you read that right. How tacky is that? The secrets that were while her husband left just made me want to shake my head and shake her to just let him go. She realizes the things that she was missing as Mark shows her. The situation was complicated, but I'm glad that Mark allowed her to be herself and love her. 

Final Thoughts:


This was full of mishaps, very awkward( and revealing) first meetings, lies, love, second chances, redemption that told a beautiful story that echoes the lesson of never change yourself for someone who doesn't appreciate it. If they love you, they won't to change you.
