Two friends fall into a passionate romance, but first they must confront a painful past, or else lose out on the one thing they’ve been searching for in this heartrending novel from the author of Come Back to Me and Stay with Me.
Emerson Lowe and popular ice-hockey player Jake McCallister have been best friends since third grade but as their friendship starts to morph into something more, a terrible event occurs that heralds the end of innocence for both of them.
Within a week, Jake’s living on the other side of the country and Emerson is left alone to pick up the pieces of her life in a small town determined to paint her as a liar.
Seven years later, Emerson is still living on the beautiful Pacific West island of Bainbridge, helping run her family’s business. The last thing she needs is Jake turning up, bringing with him old memories and opening up old wounds. But Jake—even better looking than Emerson remembers—seems determined to revive their friendship no matter how much Emerson tries to push him away.
Forced to work alongside him for the summer Emerson can’t help but fall for Jake, and soon they’re in the midst of a passionate romance that neither of them wants to end.
But both Emerson and Jake know that if they’re to have any kind of future they must first confront the past—a past that most people want to stay buried.
Love all of her books... wish some would become movies!
Loved the story
I loved the story, there were just some many little discrepancies in the writing....the number of years they had been apart (was is it seven or was it five)......using the wrong people's names (mixed up Rob and Reid several times). It just took away from the enjoyment. And I understand that the author is not American so they use different terminology, but if you're writing a book that is supposed to take place in the United States, use our terminology. Overall, all it would have taken was for someone from the US to read it before publishing and several of those little things could have been fixed.
