Oh this book!  You will be rooting for Dakota and Dexter to get back together from the day they first see each other. Like all good love stories there are obstacles both characters need to overcome or work through.  Dexters is the real reason why he broke Dakota’s heart.  Dakota is trying to focus on her dad’s health and not let thoughts of Dexter get in the way.  When Dexter becomes Dakota’s boss at their friends resort things get very interesting, and when I say interesting I mean steamy!  This book also made me wish I lived in a town like Holly Grove Island.  I mean just look at that cover! 

This is only book #1 in this series, and I can’t wait for #2 to see how Dexter and Dakota are doing even though the second book is about Dakota’s friend finding love.

Goodreads Synopsis

When a romance gone wrong lands reporter Dakota Jones in the pages of the tabloids, her rising star crashes and burns. Instead of getting the weekend anchor job she’d been promised, she’s promptly shown the door. Which leaves her one option: return home to lick her wounds, eat lemon meringue pie, and plot her comeback while actively avoiding the man who once broke her heart.

Dexter Roberts made a huge mistake when he walked away from Dakota, and he’s regretted it ever since. So when Dakota returns to Holly Grove Island to regroup and decide what’s next, Dex can’t pass up the opportunity to win back the love of his life. Now he just needs to convince Dakota to give him a second chance.
