No last names. No life stories. Those were the rules.
Once upon a time a cocky, copper-haired tourist sauntered into Zara’s bar. And even though she knew better, Zara indulged in a cure for the small-town blues. It was supposed to be an uncomplicated fling—a few sizzling weeks until he went back to his life, and she moved on.
Until an accidental pregnancy changed everything.
Two years later, she’s made peace with the notion that Dave From Brooklyn will never be found. Until one summer day when he walks into her coffee shop, leveling her with the same hot smile that always renders her defenseless.
Hockey star Dave Beringer has never forgotten the intense month he spent with prickly Zara. Their nights together were the first true intimacy he’d ever experienced. But the discovery of his child is the shock of a lifetime, and his ugly past puts relationships and family out of reach.
Or does it? Vermont’s countryside has a way of nurturing even tortured souls. The fields and the orchards—and hard won love—are Bountiful.

Really enjoyed and loved this book, however, did not care at all for the sleazy language. Clean that up and it’s awesome.
what can i say, really! my hands automatically tap 5 stars with Sarina Bowen, it’s like i’d be cheating if i not.
the book was great, i was awake until nearly 6 in the morning to finish it and it’s not enough, it is never enough.
anyway, whoever is a fan of Brooklyn Bruisers need to read it. the cameo character from True North to Brooklyn Bruisers was good idea, missing them already..
the as-always strong woman character, the warm family feeling, the ending and problem solving the book, it’s all so natural. and Dave... my GingerDaddy. it was amazeballs
i loved how she writes with no unnecessary drama, it’s like real life story, how a single mother live, how small twos works, and the Vermont? i want to visit it.
it couldn’t be more amazing.
the most important part in the books was how she describe Zara, a strong woman with the ability to do whatever she want without worrying about other opinion and how she describe her independency, it’s everything a woman need to know. like always you never disappoint your fans Sarina. love you and looking forward to the more books in these series.
PS: i can real until book number 10
PSS: i feel like i know who’s the next character. you just get the feeling.
Totally awesome story! Loved the blend of Characters
If you have read both story lines you will recognize most of the players. I could have read this in one sitting but spaced over a couple of days to keep the enjoyment going. Another great read!
