Back Cover Blurb:
Ryan Pettridge left Scallop Shores a hometown hero with a full scholarship to UCLA and an NFL destiny. Then a freak accident stole his hopes and dreams and turned the all-star athlete into a desk jockey accountant. Now his father’s stroke brings him home to take over the family hardware store.
Fate conspired once to keep Bree and Ryan apart. Despite the years that have passed, they still can’t resist each other and sparks rekindle between them. But will their difficult past be too much to overcome, or can Bree prove to Ryan once and for all that he has always been a hero in her eyes?
I love the characters that DeCuir populates her story with. They’re realistic, real life individuals with a touch of flair that makes them absolutely unforgettable. Bree’s ‘new self’, combined with who she really is in an endearing manner that really allowed me to connect with her. Ryan especially captured my attention. He was dealing with issues on so many fronts, yet still staying true to those he loved. The characters in this novel weaseled their way into my heart until I couldn’t imagine never having met them.
Although not the first novel in the series, DeCuir makes it very easy for readers to start reading with this unforgettable story. But be warned, you will be left wanting to read what came before and dying to see what comes next from this captivating author.
