I received an advance copy of this book for free. Thanks to author Michelle Lynn.
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Much can happen in ten years. People change. Life occurs; death ensues. Secrets are kept; truth prevails.
A decade has passed since Callie and Jamie exchanged goodbyes. At the time, they didn’t realize it might be their final exchange, and they’d disappear from each other’s lives. But that’s exactly what happened. Now, Callie finds herself at a crossroads. Caught between her current life and the longing for her past, she must decide what is best for her.
Jamie has worked hard to make something of himself — to prove his father wrong. Life as an Army Ranger isn’t easy, but it’s who he is down to his core. When everything starts to crumble, he receives news from home that makes him think about his life. Earlier, he vowed never to set foot in Gulf City again. Now, there's no reason he can’t go home.
Except there is... And her name is California McCoy.
My rating: 3.25 of 5 stars
“I was in love with a stubborn, foolish, control-freak of a man and he was going to forgive me because it was always meant to be us.”
This was an adult contemporary romance story, featuring the characters from book 1 ten years on.
Callie was an okay character, but I found it quite hard to see her as the mother of three children. She seemed to cope really well though, even though she was a single mum, and seemed to have plenty of time to accomplish stuff.
The storyline in this was about Callie and Jamie meeting again ten years later, and still having feelings for one another. Callie was moving back home with her three kids, and Jamie was leaving the army. It was good to see them ten years on, and interesting to see what they were up to.
The ending to this was happy, and I was pleased with the way things turned out.
6.5 out of 10
