+++This is a New Adult Romance, intended for readers over 18. It contains scenes for mature readers.+++
Meghan Hawthorne is restless. The last year has been a roller coaster: her widowed mother just married a long-time family friend. Her younger brother unexpectedly became a father and a husband. Everyone’s life is changing. . .except for hers. As she begins her final summer of college, Meghan’s looking for excitement and maybe a little romance. Nothing serious; this girl just wants to have fun.
But the only man for Meghan turns out to be the last one she expects.
Sam Reynolds doesn’t need excitement, and he doesn’t want romance. Fun is out of the question. He’s been the steady, responsible one since his parents were killed, and serious is his way of life.
When Sam rescues Meghan alongside a dark Georgia backroad, she falls hard for his deep brown eyes and slow drawl. But making him see her as more than just a party girl won’t be easy. Sam’s tempted by the fiery young artist, even as he realizes that giving into his feelings will mean radical change. . .maybe more than he can handle.
Nobody ever said love was simple.
I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions in this review are 100% my own.
This book is written by one of my favorite authors. I love everything of hers I’ve read so far. This book is part of a trilogy but can be read as a stand alone. If you are a fan of Tawdra Kandle you’ll notice some other characters mentioned from The Cove series. Meghan is a character from that book series as well.
Have you ever met someone that you just felt an emotional connection with from the moment your eyes laid on them? This is exactly what happened with Meghan and Sam. Of course they didn’t meet under the best circumstances.
Sam comes off as very judgemental at first. Meghan comes across of as a player. When these two get together it’s like oil and water. Life is funny sometimes and these two end up around each other more than they wanted.
Meghan takes a summer teaching job to teach art to children. She ends up being not only in the same town but the very same house as Sam. That is when their fireworks really start.
Sometimes the heart knows what you want/need more than the mind. I loved how these two embraced their attraction and gave into the love they were trying to deny themselves.
I would love to read more about Meghan and Sam. You can’t help but love them both.
