This is a relatively short story with great characters and an intriguing plot. It explores grief, loss and new relationships but also includes many detailed sexual activity descriptions so I would suggest should be for adults who appreciate such materials only.
Holly Jacobs has returned home to look after her brother who was injured in a car crash on the same road where both their parents were killed in a similar accident. She’s out walking his two dogs in the beach when the dogs knock over a man, Zack Winter, who had been stood in the gentle waves. He is obviously distracted and their conversation reveals he is on leave from the armed services to attend the funeral of his sister who had apparently fallen down the steps in the home she shared with her boyfriend. He welcomes the distraction Holly provides and the attraction between them is mutually instantaneous but should she give in to her desires and open herself up to heartbreak again?
This is a novella telling how Zack feels guilty for not being there to protect his sister. When revelations make him question how his sister died, Holly helps him investigate further and eventually the truth is revealed. This is not a story that anyone who dislikes reading stories filled with detailed sexual action. The story itself explores reactions to grief and guilt together with the search for truth and romance but, for me, the constant sexual escapades actually detracted from the otherwise well written, enthralling storyline – but others may well thoroughly enjoy reading about them, it’d wouldn’t be good if everyone liked exactly the same types of writing, would it!?!
Thanks to the Author, publisher and NetGalley, took , for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
