Kate Lawrence’s rose-colored glasses are rudely yanked off when her divorce leaves her without her home, her friends, and her identity as the perfect stay-at-home wife and mother. She heads to her hometown in Kentucky’s Bluegrass Region to create a new life for herself and the only person that really matters, her daughter. With her heart still fragile and hurt, she’s not prepared for the old sweetheart she finds living right next door.
Security consultant and confirmed bachelor Scott Gray could have told Kate her marriage would never work out when she’d chosen another man over him ten years ago. But when he discovers she and her daughter are his new tenants, he’s stunned to realize he’s been secretly carrying a torch for her all these years, and it’s suddenly burning hotter than he ever expected.
Kate thought her dreams of love were dead and buried. As dead as her marriage…and her heart. Does Scott really want to forget the past and move on? Or can he convince Kate to step out of the cold Kentucky rain and into a bright new future with him?
I received a complimentary copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
This was a wonderful story. I couldn't put it down. It seemed so ironic that the female protagonist "dumped" her high school sweetheart in college to marry someone else only to get dumped herself after 10 years of marriage. I adored Scott. Upon seeing his old sweetheart, he realizes that he does still love her despite her dumping him. He has a loving and generous heart and spirit. I felt for Kate, she truly loved her husband but after the divorce, she comes to realize that her marriage wasn't all it was cracked up to be. Kate's daughter Reagan was a sweetie. She was a wonderful 8 year old.
The scenes in the book were so well written that I felt like I was right there in the front row watching the action. I could hardly put it down. The only downside, it ended!!!
I highly recommend this book to anyone. While a bedroom scene was alluded to, there was no description.
