He's the biggest, baddest CEO in town. But the small business owner blocking his next deal is the college sweetheart he's never gotten over. Choose love or money? The answer's about to surprise them both....
Ten years ago, Piper Townsend fell to her death from the top of a fraternity house, and no one on Drake Isle has ever been the same. Misterion College closed down. Blake Carter's fraternity and family name were scandalized. And the love of his life fled the island, brokenhearted after losing her best friend.
Now Blake's a big-shot CEO, looking to expand his business and prove himself to his doubting, domineering father. The only thing stopping his island takeover?
Only Emmy's not so brokenhearted anymore. In fact, she owns a yoga studio in the oceanfront building Blake wants to buy. They haven't spoken in ten years. They're on opposite sides of a billion-dollar deal.
But old flames die hard, and sometimes soulmates can set the world on fire all over again.
Can Blake and Emmy make peace with the past and give in to true love? Or will they go down fighting and leave idyllic Drake Isle in ashes?
"A great summer read." ~Goodreads
"A beautiful second-chance romance." ~NetGalley
I loved the second chances theme.
Second chance romance
Because of You is the second chance story about Blake and Emerson. They were college sweethearts, but after the death of Em’s best friend, Piper, they drifted apart. I loved how we are introduced to a lot of the characters that live on Drake Isle and hopefully we’ll be reading more about them in future books. I won’t leave any spoilers, but I will say I loved how the town came together, when Em really needed them. Everyone should be so lucky to live in a town where you’re thought of as family.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
