“Romance, heartbreak, a small amount of steamy, and lots of gritty, determined story.”—Reader review
She’s secretly burned for him for years.
Derek Severson left his career as a firefighter after tragedy shook him to his soul.
Running his uncle’s beachside bar on a south Texas island gives him the chance to heal, find peace, and avoid entanglements. That is, until Macey, his childhood friend, tracks him down.
After two years abroad in a developing country, Macey Locke is ready to dive in to her Peace Corps-inspired foundation. But when she learns Derek is suffering, she can’t turn her back. Six weeks on a tropical island to help the guy she’s loved for years? No-brainer.
Derek can’t help but notice she’s not the same girl he used to know.
More self-assured, more determined, more irresistible.

Good book, hard to put down. Wanted a little more in the end. But was a good read.

This was a good story about Derek overcoming a broken heart after a loss. Macey has been a friend since they were five years old and has always loved him. The story was full of emotion and made you feel what the characters were going through.
