RELEASE DATE : June 16, 2015
Raleigh West works in an auto shop day and night, trying to put his broken past out of mind. It’s been seven years since the fiery crash that landed his teenage sweetheart in the hospital . . . and him in jail. In an instant, he lost everything: his passion for racing, his hope of escaping his father’s shameful legacy, and the only girl he ever loved. Raleigh hasn’t seen her since that awful night. Never got a chance to apologize. And never forgave himself, either.
When brave, beautiful Mia Wentworth returns to the Florida coast for the first time in what seems like forever, it’s not to see Raleigh. Even so, the moment she arrives she can feel his presence like a gust of wind that gives her goose bumps. Opening her heart to him again seems impossible. But staying away? That might be harder still. Lucky for them both, Mia’s never been the kind of woman to take the easy way out.
Oh my lord I completely fell in love with Raleigh and Mia. This was such an amazing journey with their love trying to overcome every obstacle. Fuck man, these feels messing with my cold heart.
Mia and Raleigh met at a young age and he completely changed Mia’s life in every way. Unfortunately a fiery crash left the two scarred physically and emotionally and sent Raleigh to jail.
Mia is a true survivor because has life really thrown her some depressing as hell curve-balls but she has never faulted Raleigh for what took place all those years ago. With the passing of Mia’s grandmother, she thinks it’s time that he knows how she feels.
Raleigh is ready to bolt when he learns that Mia’s aunt has left half of her home to him and Mia. He knows Mia’s parents hate him for bringing harm to their daughter but he can’t stay away from the woman who still holds his heart.
Old passions reignite between the two and bring some of the most beautiful scenes I’ve ever read. Before they can even think of a happy ending, more of Raleigh’s past comes around and threatens their future once more.
I think my only issue with the ending is that I feel some things were missing in the big finale.
