Chase Henson doesn’t play by the rules. He doesn’t let himself get attached, doesn’t stay in one place long enough to call anywhere home. So when he returns to the small town of Summer Hill for the first time in years, the last thing he expects to find is a reason to stay.
Sierra Belmont is lost. After a sudden loss that left her heart broken in a million pieces, Sierra is just barely getting by. Burying herself in work at Summer Hill’s only bookstore, all she wants to do is make it through another day.
And then Chase comes in to buy a book. Rumors that he’s dangerous fly through the town, but Sierra isn’t afraid of him. He might be the last person she should be with, but he’s the only one who understands the depth of her pain. For the first time, Chase stands still, fighting the desperation to mend Sierra’s broken heart.
Always running, the past has never had a chance to catch up to Chase. But there’s a first time for everything.

I was pulled right into this story. The story has secrets, grief, and heartbreak.
This is Sierra and Chase‘s story. Chase has lived all over but none of the places ever felt like home. When he returns to Summer Hill to bury his father he stays to help his brother. Sierra is just going through the motions of living. After suffering a tragedy, she is just a shell of the woman she once was. When she meets Chase, she is drawn to him but it’s all wrong in her eyes and heart. Chase tries to stay away but can’t. The more time they spend together the more she falls but Chase is keeping secrets. When she suffers another tragedy and secrets are reveal is it the end of this couple? Or will forgiveness be the way to mend both of their hearts?
I loved these characters and the side characters. I felt I could connect with the characters and the story was a great read.
I highly recommend this book.
