Goodbye, Orchid

I am ashamed to admit that I enjoyed the romance Goodbye, Orchid by Carol Van Den Hende. I’m not sure how it made it on my list, but it was a quick, two-hour, annoying, and completely predictable read. Amazon: “One July morning in Manhattan, handsome athlete and entrepreneur Phoenix Walker accompanies his love, half-Asian beauty Orchid, to the airport. Neither believes today is goodbye. But after she leaves, disaster strikes. Phoenix wakes in the hospital, broken, forever changed. He longs for Orchid but remembers the tragedy in her past that makes her panic over images of trauma. Now, he’s faced with the hardest decision of his life. Does he burden the woman whose traumatic childhood makes him feel protective of her? Or does true love mean leaving her without explaining why?” So, if you are looking for an escapist or beachy read and are willing to overlook incredible cliche, pick this one up.
