Neely Kimber’s back in her hometown after burning out at her big city job after avoiding it for a decade. Shortly after arriving she immediately runs into her ex, the reason she’s been avoiding the town. She finds herself growing closer to him, after she realizes the young girl she’s been mentoring is his daughter. Can they overcome their past to work together on their future?
I love Adriana Locke’s writing style. She engages you immediately, and you really grow to know her characters and their intentions. This book is a good one if you like a small town, single father, second chances story. And I do love all those things!
However I always have issue when the “hero” is a dumbass and makes dumbass decisions that impact our heroine and everyone else without consulting them. It’s so insulting to the heroine and the reader. I understand he was young and thought he was doing what was best but it’s super annoying. I just can never get over details like this and it kind of spoils the book for me. I’m still going to give it 4 out of 5 stars due to the awesome writing and characters.
