She was his strength—and his weakness.
Ten years ago, Emma Davenport gave her innocence to a blue-eyed bad boy guaranteed to break her heart. Little did she know, a teenage love would eternally haunt her dreams and change her life.
Now Kane Hunter’s back. With him comes a whirlwind of memories and unrequited dreams. He possesses the means to repair Emma's fractured world and guilt drives him to do all he can for the woman he’s never forgotten.
But when he learns he has a daughter, Kane confronts the one fear that all his success can’t negotiate. Will youthful passion become a reality, or will their love always remain yesterday’s dreams?
Clare C's Review
Ten years after leaving the love of his young life, Kane returns to find Emma had achieved not a single one of her dreams. The hearts of romantics everywhere pulse in anticipation when they hear this. Whether he intends to rescue her or inspire her inner strength so she can rescue herself, we all know they’re going to end up together, even though he has a fiancée waiting for him back home.
This book consists of a series of misfortunes. Each conflict is neatly solved before the next emerges, which doesn’t lend itself to much of a buildup of tension, but it does make for a soap-operatic kind of reading experience. The characters are both the kinds of neighbors anyone would like having, upstanding people who always do the right thing. The writing is friendly and inviting. All-in-all, it was a nice escape.
