We all make them. But when is a mistake too big to forgive? What happens when the consequences of our mistakes are so disastrous, they cause excruciating pain to everyone we hold near and dear?
San Francisco’s Dr. Morgan Drake makes one mistake. One colossal mistake that could cost him everything and everyone he loves—including himself.
When interior designer, Zoë Drake sees small changes in her husband, her investigations point to a mammoth problem. The happy marriage and great relationship they share quickly begins to evaporate. What’s worse—it’s all happening when Zoë’s going through some changes of her own—at a time when she might need Morgan the most.
With a husband who is at times completely absent, a child who increasingly blames himself for his parents’ issues, and a cryptic call that introduces the element of danger and fear, Zoë will soon realize that there is a painful side of love. As their world falls apart will there be anything that can secure their bond, or will this chapter of their lives come to a catastrophic end?
The Painful Side of Love is a follow-up novella to Rebecca Rohman’s romantic suspense novel, Love M.D. If you like romance with a tad of steam, a huge injection of suspense and being taken on a roller-coaster of emotions, then this novella is for you.

"Every time I pick up one of her books I know I'm going to be left in an emotional heap by the end for one reason or another, and The Painful Side of love was no different. As a matter of fact, this book is one of the biggest emotional rollercoasters I have been on to date! "—Barbara G., Goodreads Reviewer
5 Stars ★★★★★
"An enthralling story, which will take a swing at your emotions."—Sabrina O., Goodreads Reviewer
We are reunited with Dr Morgan and Zoe and it is so good to see them again. However, almost immediately, an incident at work cause a problem for Dr Morgan. One that will impact not only him but his family.
"Honestly Zoe, right now a part of me feels like you all would be better off without me. My actions in the last week have done nothing but cost the people I love and care about hurt, pain, and shame."
I won't go into more detail because I don't want to spoilt it but I will say this. While reading this story, I was reminded of the movie, the Butterfly Effect. This tale is exactly that. It shows the ripple effect of how one decision a person makes can have far reaching consequences. While our decisions are our own, they have a profound impact on people we love and people we haven't even met. That's why it is important to remember that our actions have consequences and can have untold repercussions on our loved ones and strangers. Each page of The Painful Side of Love was squeezing my heart and I was holding my breath and hoping for the best.
Since reading the story, I've thought about the impact I have on the people around me. That's what Ms. Rohman's writing does. She touches on real issues and she handles them with such sensitivity and grace that you can't help but continue to think about the story long after you finish the final page. There is such emotion woven into this story that you'll need to take a moment to catch your breath. With the intense emotion and suspenseful drama, there are beautiful tender moments and yes, sexy scenes to break up the tension. I loved the cover but after finishing the story, the imagery and colours held so much more meaning. Really a superb read that I recommend for everyone.
