The only things Natalie Bouchard wants to change are the weekly specials in her Gram's diner. So when her high school sweetheart strolls back into Dearling, Texas, she allows herself to indulge in a little flirtation, but that's as far as it goes.
Navy SEAL Sawyer Nolan has returned to sell his father's land and get the hell out, no matter how enticing he still finds Natalie. Until a storm rolls over the Texas hills, stranding them together at the farm...and the memories of their steamy past lead to a reunion filled with hot days and long nights.
Soon Natalie's so far under Sawyer's skin he can't imagine being without her. But he has a lot of history in Dearling he'd like to leave behind, and Natalie is practically married to this town. If Sawyer wants to be more than just another person who leaves Natalie, he'll have to give his hometown - and himself - one more chance.
I really like Amber Lin, and even though the whole, "I'm a military guy and I'm coming back to my home town to see the girl I left behind" thing doesn't really due much for me, I had to give this one a try. And I enjoyed it, though it wasn't anything mind-blowing.
I feel terrible saying that I didn't love this narration because only a few months after this audiobook was released, the veteran voice-over actress that recorded this book passed away tragically and unexpectedly. While I think Vanessa Hart did a great job being expressive and emotional while she was narrating, her throaty voice came across sounding too mature for the female MC and it threw me off a bit.
For me, this story was hot, pleasant, and a bit boring. All in all, a good use of my money but I don't know if I would remember it in a few weeks.
