Clara and Zac thought they were headed for their happily ever after, until a break-up slathered in betrayal left them both jaded and vindictive.
Twelve years have passed since they left Wyoming, and during that time Clara found her calling at a prestigious PR firm in California while Zac moved to New Orleans to join his Broussard cousins at River Enterprises. They thought they could forget each other and move on... until a local charity auction in their hometown of Snowy Creek sets Zac up for the ultimate revenge. If he wins, Clara will be at his mercy, forced to work for him for one full week. Tantalized by the sweet taste of revenge, he eagerly ups the ante to claim his prize.
But what starts out as a week of filthy manual labor and bitter rivalry leads to a shocking revelation. Someone has been plotting for over a decade to keep Clara and Zac apart. Can the pair band together to uncover who? Or will their rift from the past continue to ruin their chance at a blissful future?
I don't know why I went into this book thinking there would be an element of suspense (could be because that's now what I associate LPD with) but I was surprised that there was none.
What this is a once lovers turned enemies second chance that I thoroughly enjoyed. Parts were so angsty that I was shedding tears and the banter between Zac and Clara was hilarious.
I finished this book thinking Clara and Zac are much much better people than me since I wouldn't forgive and forget nearly as easily as they did. I loved this small town and wouldn't mind another visit.
