Ashton Kirk, youngest daughter of a prestigious senator, fiancee of a hotshot attorney, and fresh Harvard graduate, is headed for a promising law career when scandal breaks apart her family. To escape, she rents an apartment in the sleepy town of Paradise, New Hampshire, where no one knows who she is.
Ashton hopes for solitude, but all bets are off when Eddie West, the town's most eligible bachelor, moves in downstairs. Eddie likes his women and his cars shiny, sleek, and fast, and when he meets his new housemate, he wastes no time getting friendly. While he's looking for a no-strings romance, he gets more than he bargained for in Ash, who sees through his bravado to the pain of a loss too fresh to mention.
Can two people from different worlds find common ground, a place to fall in love and build a future? Is it possible to find your soul mate in the place you least expect?

freedom, beginning anew, reflection
One of the most memorable moments in the book was when Ash realized that taking a the road unknown was what she wanted to do. When everything is laid out for you, you aren't taking any chances. Taking chances and making changes is what Ash needed to do.
The moment when Ash realized that what she wanted was right in front of her. That the life that was 'planned' for her wasn't the life that she wanted. I think that taking that 'leap of faith' was what Ash needed to do.
I enjoyed the pacing of the book. Ms. Schnaubelt's narration gave each character voice without being stereotypical (accents and such). I would love to listen to more books both by the author and read by Ms. Schnaubelt.
