If faced with your worst fear, what would you do? Would you run or would you fight?
Camryn Hamilton is a fighter.
A thirty-something mother of two, Camryn appears to have it all: a husband, plenty of money, and children she adores. When she returns home to spend Christmas with her family, her perfect world she has created begins to crumble, thrusting her face to face with the only man who truly knows her.
Holden Patrick will fight harder.
A powerful, handsome attorney, Holden left town after his adoptive parents’ death. In his time away he almost managed to forget the girl who ran away with his heart. At least until a turn of fate brought him back to Mantoloking, and back to Camryn.
But are they willing to fight for each other?
Faced with a tragic past that they both wanted to forget, they struggle to protect their hearts from being broken again. Will their love be enough to get them through another tragedy, or will they close themselves off and run away again?
I am always a sucker for a second chance romance so when I read the blurb for this book not only did that catch my eye, but it was also nice to see that the heroine was in her 30’s.
Camryn has always known there was something special about Holden. From the moment she laid eyes on him when they were young she knew that he would always be in her life one way or another. As they grew up their friendship grew into a relationship that ended in a break up after Camryn experiences something that causes her to shut everyone out of her life even the man she is madly in love with. Many years later these two friends were brought together again by tragedy. Can their love be rekindled?
I love the dialog between Camryn and Holden. They are “smart asses” in a loving sort of way. While reading I found a few times I wanted to yell at Camryn for being so guarded with Holden when he was clearly a Knight in Shining armor. I wish I had me a Holden best friend in my life.
