I received this book from Goodreads first reads giveaway.

This was the first time I have ever read a RaeAnne Thayne book. I was pleasantly surprised and will read more of her books in the future.

This book tells the story of Lucy and Brendan who shared a steamy kiss when they were younger and then went their separate ways. Lucy is hurt that Brendan does not call her back as he promises to do and is equally hurt when he begins to date and later marry Lucy’s cousin and best friend Jessie. This begins the friction between them that lasts for years.

Brendan’s wife, Jessie, dies unexpectedly leaving him to raise their two young children. Lucy decides to move back to Hope’s Crossing after losing her job in Seattle. Both meet again and there is friction. Both and awkward and curt with each other. Lucy is an “Aunt” to Brendan’s children and remains a big part of their lives. Watching her interact with his children he begins to see her in a new light. Both fight their attraction to each other.

This was an enjoyable read. Fans of romance novels will really enjoy this book/series.
