In the latest novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Love After All and the Play-By-Play novels, running from the past isn’t nearly as satisfying as facing the future…
Brady Conners is hardly the settling type, but when tragedy strikes in his family, he has no choice but to return home to Hope, Oklahoma. Setting up shop to work on custom motorcycles and pass the time, Brady has no intention of letting anyone get close—until he meets Megan.
Pastry shop owner Megan Lee is drawn to quiet, brooding Brady. Their connection is undeniable, and it quickly develops from physical attraction into something much stronger. But with Brady putting up barriers, Megan is afraid to truly open her heart—unless she can convince him to let go of the past…
Brandi’s 3 star review
Whoever designs Jaci Burton’s cover’s, they need a medal! They are always so eye catching (yeah, I know there’s always a hot guy but shush!) and oh so sexy!
This is my first Hope novel (yes, I know there are 5 others) because the premise drew me in. Bike shop owner meets pastry girl? Why yes, I think that sounds delish! And it was just what I ordered. Small town feels, sweet girl, resisting boy, a puppy and written by Jaci Burton.
The reason this is only a 3 star for me is more on my end. There was a lot of scenes with other character’s from previous books and since I haven’t read them…well, you know how that goes. So, if I had started at the beginning, I’m sure this would have had a higher rating because Meghan and Brady did sizzle up the pages and I enjoyed their story.
