Heavily character driven, the story revolves around our heroine Miranda Brookhaven and her journey back to the worse time of her life. Abandoned by her lover and father forced Miranda to leave Bitterthorn and cut herself off from her family. Coming back home to a town filled with people who hate her and her family isn’t easy. Emotions run hot and heavy as we learn that there are three sides to every story-yours, theirs, and the truth. Small town gossip and animosity only adds fuel the fire as we hear Miranda’s and Coe’s versions of the events of that fateful summer; events that don’t quite match up.
Their romance is sweet, sarcastic, sexy, and heartbreaking. Strong chemistry and passion flavors the story, assuring readers that no matter what happened in the past, this couple isn’t completely free of one another. The slow journey towards discovery, forgiveness, and ultimately love controlled a large portion of the storyline. Gail builds the story, effectively communing to readers the pain and angst these two suffered through. Miranda was left damaged by Coe and her father. Damage that can’t be rectified by a simple ‘I’m sorry.’ Coe, older and more mature, sees that he has a lot of work to do if he is ever going to gain Miranda’s trust and forgiveness to help move her past the anger and grief she still clings to.
I loved the interactions between Coe and Miranda. Coe expects the soft-spoken squeaky clean ‘princess’ he remembers from the past and is shocked when he gets the strong, sarcastic, foul mouth, take no crap from anyone woman she has become. Though he comes off as a complete jerk in the beginning, watching him open his heart and become the sweet protective man to the woman he has always loved was wonderful to watch. The moment he realizes exactly how much he hurt Miranda, your heart breaks along with his.
The ending wraps up everything nicely and leaves us with a sweet happily ever after for our protagonists. Though this is part of a series, each book can be read as a stand alone.
Overall Rating: B
Miranda and Coe were enemies but it was not always like this. They had a love that was passionate and explosive but they were so very young. Fast forward years and this is two very different people. The intensity of their reactions to each other was felt with the first dialogue. I loved how Miranda didn’t pull any punches and just said how she felt and never shied away from admitting how much she loved Coe back when everything fell apart for them. Coe really surprised me with how he owned up to his responsibility in how things happened. His pursuit of Miranda was heartwarming. Even if he didn’t know what his heart felt, his actions were by far the sweetest ever. The way things fell into place and watching these too fall in love all over again was romance at it’s finest. Coe was protective and romantic and I adored his take charge ways.
I can honestly say that I was captivated throughout this passionate second chance love story and the epilogue was adorable. Stacy surprised me and knocked me off my feet and I’m so happy to have enjoyed Coe’s sweet love story.

The storyline was an interesting one and I had to keep reading to see how things would play out, I especially liked how the author managed the flashbacks without interrupting the flow. Their romance was smoking hot and yet Coe still managed to make it tender in his own way. I did get a little perturbed that Miranda kept wigging out on things but that was part of her backstory so I overlooked it. Thank heavens he was patient and tenacious. This was a very pleasant return trip to Bitterthorn and I can only wonder who is next.
