OK, SO HONESTLY, MALE NARRATORS SHOULD NOT NARRATE BOOKS WHO ARE WRITTEN FROM A WOMAN'S PERSPECTIVE. A FEMALE NARRATOR IS MORE APPROPRIATE! Other than that, the story seems fine, but I couldn't get past the first chapter because of the terrible narrator.

Reeling from her unsatisfying, high-pressure life, Emily decides she needs a change. She decides on a whim to drive to her father's abandoned home on the coast of Maine, a sprawling, historic house where she'd spent magical summers as a child. But the house, long-neglected, is in dire need of repair, and the winter is no time to be in Maine. Emily hasn't been there in 20 years. Now, for some reason, with her life reeling, Emily feels drawn to the only childhood place she ever knew.

While this book had some issues, it also depicted several feminist ideas that I enjoyed seeing in writing.
What upset me most is that the heroine slapped the hero. That is not ok. I wish she would have been called out for that.

But life - and love - altered her plans. Now she's home again - with a floundering farm to run...a tragic secret...and a wounded heart. Romance is not on her agenda. Nor is it on Michael Hunter's. The visitor from Chicago has daunting secrets and devastating regrets of his own.

Jake McKallister might have been a rock star, but he was no ordinary one. Surviving an unspeakable crime as a young teen had shaped him into a guarded workaholic, and he now lived his life trying to forget. If it hadn't been for music and the redemption he found through it, he might not have survived. Career success came easily for him. Personal connections did not.

I am happy that the book talked about male sexual assault and the way it dealt with the trauma. However, I think the heroine is a bit of a Mary Sue. At times, I wondered wtf.
