After a terrible accident, Blake Remington struggles to regain the ability to walk. Therapist Dione Kelly is his final hope-if he can bring himself to trust the woman whose past is shrouded in mystery. Dione's soul is as paralyzed as Blake's body. Dione wants only to help Blake recover, but as his strength returns, so does his desire to unearth her secrets. When they give in to the passion that flares between them, Dione just might find that her patient is the only one who can heal her private pain.

    I started reading Come Lie With Me by Linda Howard after seeing the book blurb on Amazon. I was looking for a quick read and this seemed to fit the bill.The premise of the story is that Dione, a private physical therapist, is hired to help rehabilitate Blake, a successful, thrill-seeking, business owner, who can no longer walk after a mountain climbing accident. Dione & Blake don’t see eye to eye, but she moves in with him none-the-less to begin his therapy.The idea behind the story is moving and emotional. The methods Dione uses to rehabilitate Blake seem authentic and not just made up for the sake of the story. I found the story to be quite touching in some places and somewhat silly in others.Overall, Come Lie With Me was a short, sentimental story that was fairly enjoyable to read.This is one of Linda Howard’s earlier works before she started writing suspense novels. If you are not a fan of sappy romance novels, you probably won’t enjoy this book.

    Physiotherapist Dione helps Blake to walk again, after an accident, and helps him to rebuild his mind as well as his legs. By accomplishing that, she seems to have unleashed an overbearing, jealous tyrant, who rides roughshod over her feelings, as she helplessly falls in love with him. I'd like to have seen the story from Blake's viewpoint, though, there were snatches, here and there. Uneven and unsatisfying

    I LOVE this romance story. Linda Howard does a wounded hero and scarred heroine perfectly. Blake is physically wounded and has given up the will to live. Dione, his physical therapist, is emotionally scarred but is a fighter who never gives up. Together these to fight until they nearly kill each other all the while falling in love and forming an amazing unbreakable bond neither has ever had before.The sexual tension is great and when they finally get together you nearly weep for them because it's highly emotional. When Blake stands for the first time in two years and he breaks down and cries you have to cry with him. He was such a strong, adventurous man who almost lost everything, but Dione brought him back and won his heart. And Blake not only won Dione's heart, but also her trust- something she's never fully given another human being in her life because of her abused past.A griping, touching and oh so romantic love story. A great fast read that I highly recommend.

    After re-reading Tears of the Renegade I decided to re-read this one. Although a bit dated, this remains a strong romance. There isn't enough male POV for me, though.

    Beautiful life altering experience for this young man to have to this stage of his life only for him to have suffered this accident that left him parallelized. In addition, Blake Remington lives life to the fullest. So, when a terrible accident robs him of his ability to walk, it also takes away all of his desire to live.
    Until a friend and business partners of Blake Remington find him another physical therapist Dione Kelly, who then made changes happens for him. Sweet, humorous romance pitting an irascible patient with the no-nonsense therapist who is going to make sure he walks again, come hell or highwater. The first half of the novel was wonderful. Linda Howard injects her humorous banter and some truly comical scenes as these two strong and stubborn individuals lock horns to the bemusement of the people surrounding them.
    Second half of the novel was a bit of a letdown. Why can't we have a strong, confident female character without necessarily saddling her with a martyr back story? What was all the OW-OM nonsense for?
    I wouldn't say that it completely fizzled out at the end. It was still very sweet and romantic, thanks to one of the better Linda Howard heroes I have come across (his obligatory big fat jerk moment was so tepid and short-lived that it felt just artificially inserted for the sake of creating some drama, otherwise he really was stellar). I just wished the heroine stayed feisty and strong tile the end, minus all the waterworks and feels.

    This one started out right from the get go not working for me. First off, the story is told completely from there heroine, Dione’s POV. I like to see the hero’s POV but we never get it in this book. Thus I did not like Blake. He got on my nerves even before we ‘meet’ him with his ‘willing himself to death because he can’t walk’ attitude. Sure it’s a rotten thing to have happened to him. He was a vital and risk taking kind of guy, but to me he was a coward with his attitude and since we never see his thoughts. I couldn’t get past that. We never got to know him in any sense of the word – unlike most Linda Howard books. I mostly liked Dione, the heroine, although her poor me, I’ll never be a ‘normal woman able to love and bear children’ got a bit wearing after a while. Once we got to see why she was like that, her secrets, it was a bit more understandableAnd back to Blake. I often see readers say they doubt the hero/heroine can have a HEA but me being the optimist that I am, rarely see this in a book. But in this book, I wouldn’t give them a snowball’s chance in hell of making it past a couple of years at most without Dione getting therapy. She had been emotionally damaged much earlier in life and although Blake claimed to understand her, he never really did and made a couple of real dumbass mistakes. At one point in the book Dione and his sister shared a look that he caught and insisted on knowing what it was all about. Then when she wouldn’t tell him, he got a bit rough with her. At that point, she should have left his sorry ass but she didn’t. And then he put on an annoying display of jealousy and mistrust not long after that. Sorry, but jealousy in a guy is just another way of saying you don’t trust your woman. Then later still he steamrolled all over what she was trying to say – that it won’t work out. He just kept on – not listening to her.Like I said, I finished the book. But I really didn’t like it.
