REVIEW

""Can they overcome the obstacles to a happy ever after?""

Mac was Olympic runner Keely's high school coach and friend; so when Keely is involved in a traffic accident receiving injuries which threaten her career, she turns to Mac. Keely hasn't seen him for a number of years; so she does not know a tragic event has left Mac paraplegic.

Mac has overcome his disability and is now head of the athletics department and coach for disabled athletes. Keely is horrified by Mac's disability and Mac is and has always been in love with Keely. Can they overcome the obstacles to a happy ever after?

I loved this book! It deals very well with the challenges faced by a disabled person without avoidance or sugar coating. A MAN LIKE MAC is filled with wry humor (Mac's best friend who is also disabled and his wife are great secondary characters.) One of the best scenes in the book just sums up its outlook to a tee: Mac and Keely have just spent the night together. He wakes to find that his bladder has emptied and of course is mortified. He wants nothing more than to never see her again but Keely shuts him up by returning the favor.... on Mac's lap.

I was dubious about reading about a hero with this degree of paralysis but recommendations from friends convinced me to give it a try and I am so glad I did.
