Publisher's Summary

Can they strike love again?

At 19, Clara Graves left Necessity, Texas, to try to heal her broken heart. She swore she would never come back, and she's kept that promise. Until now. When she returns for her uncle's funeral, she inherits a small oil company that may keep her tied to Necessity for a few days longer than she expected. But as soon as she can close or sell the business, she's pointing her boots toward greener pastures.

To this day Mitchell MacAllan regrets letting Clara go without a fight. But his whole life was in Necessity, and leaving town wasn't in the cards. As the foreman of Aerio Oil and Gas, he works hard to keep the townspeople employed and maintain the business, despite a recent downturn in petroleum prices.

Now Mac has less than a week to convince Clara that she should give Aerio a chance and maybe even forgive him in the meantime. Otherwise she will once again be leaving Necessity - and taking his heart with her, this time for good.

    "Predictable"

    The story was a quick listen yet most parts were predictable. I think it was rushed and could have had lots more details included to make it a richer read. I like that Duke was arrested for his destruction but I also felt that he was misused a little. Because the details were not provided it is hard to say if he had a right to have a grudge. Although it should have been carried out in a different manner. Mac and Clara got their HEA and Clara got the chance to do what she needed to have the life she wanted before returning to Necessity.I got this book via audiobook boom.

    "Short, sweet story"

    I love coming home books. This story of Clara and Mac gives us some insight to love letting go and seeing if it comes back. Clara returns to Necessity after her Uncle Gavin passes away, surprising her with an Oil Company. Mac, her high school sweetheart, is running the company and has one week to show and convince Clara to keep the company and hopefully remain in Necessity with him. Stories like this always make me feel warm inside, how quickly old feelings come back, and how new feelings for the people they become are formed. Clara and Mac have a few ups and downs, and there is a little suspense as well. This is a sweet story, great for a listen while I walk.

    Cici Kay gave a wonderful performance, this being my first narration by her, I will definitely be looking for additional ones. Her voice gave warmth and character to each person in the book, letting you feel their emotions.

    --I was given a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review

    "Cute..."
    Any additional comments?

    This was a cute romance book… I really enjoyed it… the only thing I would change is I wish it was a little longer and I didn’t like that Mac just didn’t seem as in love with Carla as she was with him that kind of made me sad…

    "Hated Mitch/Mac But Loved Clara and Story"

    This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audio book Boom

    Clara comes back to Necessity Texas after her uncles death after being gone 10 years after her boyfriend cheated on her. Boyfriend Mitch/Mac runs the oil company she has inherited and uses deceitful and manipulative ways to try to convince her not to sell. He says it's for the town, but just as he manipulated her to leave he was doing it again to keep the company.
    As you can tell he didn't redeem himself to me and I never liked him
    I liked the whole idea of the story and this would have scored higher if I ever
    Decided I liked Mitch, but I couldn't
    The narrator did a wonderful job and I would listen to her anytime, not her fault the 'hero' was bad news to me.
