With his thick southern drawl and seductive charm, Luke is the country boy everyone adores. He has his future mapped out, but his plans with Olivia are suddenly derailed when she makes a decision that blindsides him, changing the path they both envisioned.
As Luke struggles to keep everything in check during a difficult time in his life, he must put his trust in the one person who broke it to begin with. The last time they saw each other, Olivia busted his heart wide open, turning him into the man he is today.
When Olivia returns to her roots, just like Luke said she would, he is shocked for more reasons than one. Nine years have passed since they’ve seen each other, and when their roads collide unexpectedly, Luke can only push his worry and misgivings away for so long.
Things are different now—they are strangers—and the rope that once bound Olivia’s heart to South Fork, Georgia is pulling her back in, forcing her to remember how it used to be all those years ago.
A Southern contemporary romance novel spanning two time frames. Olivia is a Neurologist and doing well for herself. She comes from a small town in the south and has a history with a boy she left to go to medical school. Following a second chance at love.
There are flash back scenes which follow the madly in love pair. The pair were adorable and loving and their relationship before Olivia moved away was amazing. In the present day scenes I thought that some of Olivia’s decisions were ill advised. I felt that Olivia was bowled over by any instance of lust.
When Luke and Olivia run into each other years later their chemistry is still there. Can they make up for the mistakes of their past? Overall, it was a sweet contemporary romance novel with some hints of Hart of Dixie. Olivia felt a little two dimensional with little character growth.
Keep Calm and Read On,
