The book is well written and is pacy. Our heroine True is poor but happy and engaged to a rather odious man who will give her financial security. More odious than her intended is his posh and snooty family. It is difficult to understand exactly why she has become mixed up with him except that she seems to have few other options. Harrison is a famous superstar country singer who has returned to his home and is now seeking to renew his past relationship with True. They each have to come to terms with things in their past, accept the idea of long-term commitment to one another, and make a relationship work in a practical way.
The characterisations are good and the main characters are more rounded and believable than many in this genre. There are some excellent family members with some quite distinct quirks. I was disappointed that the author made True's boyfriend's family so unlikeable and cardboard as it would have been nice if we could have seen them more as real people too.
The plot is very predictable although the journey is pleasant enough. I do query exactly how rich Harrison is - he seems to spend money like water and I cannot believe that even a superstar would have so much readily available cash. The connection between the two main characters is well done and there is some amusing banter.
If you like small town romances you should enjoy this one but it is not particularly outstanding in any way. I received a free copy via NetGalley.

The hero, Harrison, is somehow both bad-boy sexy and a genuine gentleman—believably. I couldn’t wait to see what he would say (or do) next to the heroine, True. I adored True. At the outset she’s appealingly vulnerable and just a little bit of an adorable mess, but she’s swiftly revealed to be a strong woman fighting for her family and her home. I love this sort of heroine—utterly feminine while kick-ass in her own way and determined.
The romance brought me to tears of happiness all the way through, including the absolutely perfect brief flashbacks to Harrison and True’s childhood and teen years. I adored their relationship, a bond of friendship and trust and adventure formed early in their lives that—despite all that drives them apart—never fades and never dies. It’s both deeply moving and incredibly hot. Their chemistry sizzles.
The minor characters are real, imperfect, and so loveable. There’s a lot of love in this book, in fact, between all the characters, and all types of love, and it makes the entire story glow. The setting creates the glow too. Though this book is a small-town romance, it feels big, rich, colorful, textured, and infinitely charming in a real, honestly lived way. I actually wanted to be living there in that small southern coastal town, diving off the dock or picking strawberries or eating pancakes at the kitchen table in Maybank Hall. It’s a warm, welcoming, delicious world, and I hope Kramer has more books planned for it. Finally, there are so many one-liner jewels that I gasped, smiled and laughed throughout.
I recommend this book for readers looking for a wonderfully sexy, warm, romantic and satisfying read.
Please note: I review very few books, and only those that I stay up all night to finish. I love smart, determined heroines with secretly soft hearts; alpha heroes with brains and compassion; a colorful cast of minor characters; hot sex scenes that are really true love scenes; and great writing.
