When his costar and real-life girlfriend is caught cheating on him with her director, A-list hottie Jack Eversea heads to sleepy Butler Cove, South Carolina. He hopes the sultry Southern heat in this tiny coastal Lowcountry town will hide him not only from the tabloids and his cheating girlfriend but also his increasingly vapid life and the people who run it. He doesn't count on meeting Keri Ann Butler.

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.

Come home to Hope Harbor - where hearts heal...and love blooms. Tracy Campbell never wanted to leave Hope Harbor, Oregon, or the idyllic three-generation cranberry farm where she grew up. 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.

Loved the plot and the characters, but I had issues with how heavy-handed faith and God and Christianity were. I managed to make it to the end only because I really liked the characters.

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.
