Teagan Firestone has always been the dutiful daughter, especially since her mom died. But as her father finally begins to move on, it’s her turn to do the same. Her destination: Pearl Lake, a close-knit community with an entrepreneurial spirit and secrets of its own.
One of them is Aaron Saunders, who dropped out of college to work construction for Pearl Lake’s upper class. He’s a mystery and has a playboy reputation—that is, until he meets Teagan. Neither of them is looking for love, but in a town this small, it’s hard not to let your heart get involved.
As their romance heats up, Aaron’s elusive past comes to light and Teagan is there for him, bringing them even closer together. But when Teagan is forced to face her own demons, her inability to accept the support of friends and family threatens the life she’s worked so hard to build.
Can Aaron love her, even when she can’t love herself?

✨ I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ✨
I’m Just going to say it, I didn’t enjoyed this second instalment as much as I liked the first one.
Aaron and Teagan were perfectly likeable, I enjoyed their relationship and how it evolved. In fact the first half of this book was brilliant and I did love it but the second half was a bit tough to get through.
All of Teagan’s issues (that had been subtly building since the beginning) comes right out to the forefront and all her anxiety and substance misuse, which I have to admit I didn’t immediately pick up on. It’s pretty heavy going and it did make it hard for me to finish this story, mainly because I’m not a fan of that type of storyline. The actual story telling was spot on and the writing was very good.
Overall, this story good but not the best for me, but if you love the more serious drama feel to our love stories than definitely give this ago
My Rating: 3/5 🌟🌟🌟
