Courtney Holloman is a woman at the top of her game. She's successful, wealthy, and a highly sought after Washington lobbyist. At first glance, one might think that she has it all. She doesn't. Not even close. She lives life in the fast lane without a moment to spare. She leaves no time to smell the roses. She's consumed by work in a world of politics and power brokers. She has money, her job, booze, and nothing else. In quiet moments, against her will, her mind drifts back to her days in high school and to all that she gave up.
Jack Camdon is a complex woman, and yet not at all. She earns her living as an entomologist, has a passion for bees, and the environment. She's an Ojibwe healer and someone who has a good grasp on the things that are most important. Jack is also a woman who has never moved beyond the sudden and unexplained departure of her high school sweetheart, her lover, and her soul mate.
When circumstances bring Courtney back to town two decades later, their paths will cross. Can high school sweethearts, apart for the entirety of their adult life, rekindle their flame that still burns hot? Or, will hurt feelings, shattered trust, and conflicting priorities destroy their second chance at love?

The writing was juvenile, as was the narration. I felt it was written in high school and posted to a fic site. Some characters would have been worth getting to know, but there are so many genre cliches mashed up into this "story" that it was almost funny. Pick a couple if you must, but don't throw them all in the pot and try to make a novel out of them.
-Tall dark "handsome" butch with a Jeep
-Butch is part native american
-Butch has heart of gold (don't they all?)
-Blonde femme with a Lexus
-Femme is a heartless bitch (aren't we all?)
-Cookie cutter mean bigoted mom
I actually finished the book to pass the time, but I would not purchase.
