The quiet town of Hartwell is the perfect place to get away from it all – and find what you never knew you needed . . .
Bailey Hartwell has many reasons to feel content – her successful business, a close circle of friends and her steady boyfriend . . . even if their romance feels staid after ten years without a serious commitment. The only challenge in her life comes in the form of sexy businessman Vaughn Tremaine. She thinks the ex-New Yorker acts superior and that he considers her a small-town nobody. But when Bailey’s blindsided by a betrayal, she’s shocked to discover Vaughn is actually a decent guy.
Vaughn admires Bailey’s free spirit, independence and loyalty. As his passion for her has grown, his antagonism toward her has only worsened. Every little thing Bailey does seduces him. But when Vaughn’s painful emotional past makes him walk away in fear he will hurt her, it opens an old wound in Bailey, and she uncharacteristically retreats.
Once Vaughn begins to realise he's made the biggest mistake of his life, he has no choice but to fight like he's never fought before to convince Bailey that the love they've found together only comes around once in a lifetime . . .

Series or Stand-Alone: Book 2, Hart's Boardwalk
Source: Review Copy from Publisher
One of the best things about finding a book that you loved reading is to discover that there is a book 2! I was so excited when I found out this even existed I knew I had to read it straight away. You have all the same characters that were in the first book with a few added extras. In book 1 we followed the story of Jessica who was new and we saw her journey. This time we follow Bailey who has lived on Hart's Boardwalk her entire life.
If I was asked to pick one thing that I liked the most about this book I don't think that I can. There are so many aspects of this story that made it great for me. You have Vaughn who Bailey has a love hate relationship with. You then have the dispute between Bailey and her family and the Devlins who want to take over her business. Along with that you have many other little things that all make up a great story. Added to that you have the return of Bailey's sister who is not a character I particularly liked in this story but it was very entertaining to read!
If you haven't picked up this series yet, you need to! I will say that this is more on the romance side and does contain a few 'sexy times', but even if this is not your thing do give it a go as this story is so much more than that.
