I said I’d never set foot on Oakley Island again. Not so long as HE lived there. But after my life implodes, I’m reconsidering EVERYTHING. Including my reasons for avoiding the first—and only—man I’ve ever loved.

I’m a high achiever. Driven. Maybe a little TOO driven.

So when my boyfriend confesses to cheating AND steals the promotion I’ve been working toward for years, I do the unthinkable for someone like me.

I break. 

But the timing couldn’t be better for me to fall apart—I can escape to the idyllic Oakley Island and oversee the renovations on my late grandmother’s estate.

There’s just one tiny, massive, little problem: no one told me the contractor is the grown up version of the boy I fell in love with years ago.

He was my first love. My first kiss.

My first heartbreak.

Now, I’m faced with seeing Hunter daily. Being his boss. Forging a new dynamic that fits our adult selves.
Hunter is bigger. Bearded. Talks in grunts rather than words.

And has just as much hold on me as he ever did.

Trouble is, Hunter’s life is on Oakley. His daughter is on Oakley. And it was never my plan to stay here permanently.

Do I really want to risk having my heart broken a second time? More importantly, do I want to risk breaking his?

Again, fanatically entertaining book with a lot of heart and great characters and romance. I liked this one even better. I’m always a sucker for a second chance romance. I loved all the flash-backs each of them had and getting to see a younger side of them and their love was sweet. Merritt had lost her true self while she’d grown up and there was a lot to her story that resonated with me. Hunter is a quiet non assuming guy with a child. There was a lot to unpack in this story, but even amisted all the emotional baggage there was plenty of funny moments and captivating writing. Again, steamy kissing scenes. PG+
