My summary of the book - Ewan has pursued Natalie for years and always been knocked back but when she stays with the family for a week he sees his chance at finally winning her. He manages to get her to agree a week of lessons of getting a life and seems to be winning her over but when incident brings her past back he has to start all over again.
Thoughts on the characters - When you get to know why Natalie is the way she is you understand why she is hesitant of letting Ewan in. She doesn't think she is strong enough to let people in when she has been through heartbreak before but as she spends time with Ewan she realises there is a life out there and she should live it. But she is deeply troubled when an accident happens to Ewan and she goes back to where she started. All she needs to do is a take a chance and be happy.
Ewan has wanted Natalie for years and is hopeful when she agrees to his plans and he is determined to show her a good time. He loves her snarky ways but knows it is a cover for something and he is upset when she won't let him in but he still can't keep his hands off her when they come together. He very patient with her and knows when and how to relax her so she doesn't go into a dark mood.
Overall thoughts - Enjoyed this one and they seem well matched for each other as Ewan manages to calm Natalie down when she needs it. Plus it very hot again!!!
