Publisher's Summary

Zoe Brown may have been voted Most Likely to Never Leave River Bend, but the paper-thin walls and suffocating air of her family's double-wide trailer were not what she wanted for her life. Other than BFFs Melanie and Jo, the only thing that kept Zoe sane during high school was her boyfriend, Luke.

She didn't just leave, she escaped - turning her back on the shame of her black-sheep siblings and imprisoned dad. Now a celebrity chef in Dallas, she can afford all the things she never could have growing up. But when she returns to rustic, ruggedly beautiful River Bend, Zoe has to face all that she abandoned - including Luke.

While Luke was a refuge for Zoe in the past, he knows they inhabit totally different worlds now. Anchored by his parents and his job as a mechanic in his father's shop, Luke never felt the urge to leave River Bend - until Zoe's return.

But when the two rekindle their old flame, Zoe is forced to make the hardest decision of her life: remain in River Bend and confront her past before it destroys her, or say good-bye to everyone she's ever loved...again, this time for good.

    "Nice to listen"

    A bit predictable. I have to wonder why Zoe drinks since her father is an alcoholic. I hear her using it as a crutch. The reader clips words and I find that difficult to listen to. However, I do not regret the purchase.

    "I liked it"

    Well, it wasn't a bad book, it was just a little slow but tolerable. I put it down couple of times before I finished.

    Story
    "Did not excite me much"
    Any additional comments?

    I think the main reason this book did not engage me was the two main characters, Jake and Zoe. I just could not like them, mainly because I did not know them. They were not very well fleshed out. The story is decent and the reader is good, but the love story was just not too interesting. Zoe's family is a mess. Her dad is an abusive convict, out on parole. Her mother is a weak enabler. Her sister a very young unwed mother and her brother a high school dropout that often gets into trouble. Zoe had left town, and left her boyfriend Luke, when she graduated high school. Eleven years later she is a famous chef, making good money. She comes back to her home town and immediately hooks up with Luke and decides to stay if she can deal with her messy family.

    "So real"

    as someone who survived similar abuse this story was as real as re living it. though some would not want remember I don't want to ever forget. this kind of real is good to bring to those who were blessed to never have lived it. well d0ne.

    "worth the wait"

    I have been waiting for the sequel, and it was worth it. Great read! Hope the final book is just as captivating.

    Story
    "Never give up"

    As a romance it was out of my normal genre but I love Catherine Bybee as a story teller. No great thrills and excitement but a really really good and enjoyable story written without the angst a lot of authors seem to need to make a story work. Most enjoyable and narrated brilliantly with great voice inflections . Highly recommended .
