Overachiever River Purcell was never supposed to be a struggling single mom, working double shifts just to make ends meet. Nor was she supposed to be abandoned by her high school sweetheart, breaking her heart into a thousand jagged pieces. Now Vaughn De Matteo is back in town, his sights set onher…and River is in danger of drowning a second time.

No one believed Hook’s resident bad boy was good enough for River. Not even Vaughn himself. But he’ll fight like hell to win back the woman he never stopped loving, to keep the daughter he never expected, and convince himself he’s worth their love in the process–even if he has to rely on their fierce and undeniable sexual chemistry.

But even as River’s body arches under his hungered touch, the demons of the past lurk in the shadows. Waiting for Vaughn to repeat his mistakes one last time…




(ARC received from Netgalley in exchange for honest review.)

River and Vaughn met when River was in high school. Vaughn waited for River’s eighteenth birthday to take her virginity. River and Vaughn love each other desperately. Vaughn thought he was not good enough for River. River’s dad felt like Vaughn was not good enough. River’s dad told Vaughn that he would give the deed to the house if Vaughn would live town and River. Vaughn loved River enough to make sure River had a house.

Forty-nine months and three days Vaughn found his way back to that town and found River and so much more.

I loved this couple. You could feel the love they had for each other in the past and how time didn’t change that fact. That couple had some sizzling sex. They even learn how communication is vital.
