Three years after a career ending injury ruins his chance to play Major League Baseball, Gavin has a distrust of northerners and lately girls in general. He wants nothing to do with a girl who is only in town for the summer.When the two give in to their impossible attraction, they realize that they may just have found the key to freeing themselves from the ghosts of their pasts.
MY REVIEW:Well now this is my kind of romance read!! I like a romance where the intimacy is basically up to the reader's imagination and not spelled out explicitly! Call me old fashioned, but I like it much better when it's up to the reader.
The romance was good. I liked that both main characters, Becca and Gavin, were wounded individuals. It gave them room to grow and overcome their issues together. Neither wanted to be hurt and each had to learn to trust and recognize the feelings of their hearts. I loved the beach setting. I felt like I was present under the moonlight, watching the stars and the light reflecting off the water....Big Sigh! Frosting on the cake was the inclusion of a lovable labrador!!
Ms Ivy writes beautifully and the story moved quickly forward to a satisfactory ending. The ending seemed maybe a tad rushed, but it was an acceptable ending to an enjoyable romantic read.
