This wasn’t my first Carrie Aarons book so I thought I knew what to expect but I was wrong. This story was heartbreaking but so sweet.
Blake and Carson were childhood sweethearts until a terrible tragedy struck and tore them apart. Blake has been living as a hermit for the past 10 years as a way to try and cope with what happened but now Carson is back in town. This story is about a second chance romance and while there are parts that are heartbreaking there are also parts that make you smile.
These two are meant for each other and Carrie Aarons has a way with words that lets you feel each characters pain as if it’s your own. She can describe scenery perfectly. I don’t want to get into too much detail about the story because I feel like you should read it without knowing what happens however, this story has the perfect happy ending. If you're looking for something with less angst and more romance then this is the book for you.

This is a story about young love, high school sweet hearts with the world at their feet. That is until the unthinkable happens. Then everything gets turned around and things said in the heat of the moment that hurt deeply.
Blake Sayer is living a reclusive lifestyle that she didn't plan on when she was a teen. Things are very different for her now. Carson Cole was meant to be in her life, but after that night, he left town for ten years. Now he's back to run the family business and maybe get a chance to talk with Blake, and work through that eventful evening.
I am a lover of second chance romances so was happy when I was offered to read this book. I felt the characters were strong and the story line complete. I did feel it lacked a little on the suspense. There was plenty of drama and some angst and a whole lot of romance which makes my heart sing. I think it was because they found their HEA early, I was waiting for a dilemma that needed solving beyond their reconciliation. If you are looking for a sweet romantic story that will leave you on a high, then this book is for you.
