My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I’ve read books by this author before, but this is the beginning of a whole new series. I can’t help but be excited. I loved her first series so much, and I just know this might be a new favorite!
Zach left behind his hometown in a trail of dust, the minute he turned 18. He left behind everything he’d ever known, including his high school sweetheart, hoping to make it big in Nashville. He broke promises to come back for her after her graduation, breaking her heart into pieces. Eventually, Dani moves on with her life, finding love again, and having a child. Once again, she is heartbroken when she looses her husband to death. She goes back to her home town, picking up the pieces of her life, opening up her own bakery. She’s doing pretty well, until Zach comes back home after many years away, building a name for himself as a country singer. Old feelings are dragged back up, leaving confusion in its path.
First impression of this book? I really didn’t like Zach to begin with. He was an arrogant playboy, who didn’t think about the consequences of his actions, or who could be hurt. Even as he got older, he still held on to the superstar life style. This was a great example of a second chance romance, from an author who isn’t afraid to tackle the characters that you love to hate. I have to admit, as the book progressed, and the characters developed, I began to see Zach become the man he always had the possibility to be. It just took a good woman to make him see it! This is definitely a book that will pull on your emotions!
