Overview

When Will Kincaid's professional football career comes to an abrupt end in a single night, he's left to figure out what he's going to do with the rest of his life. He heads home to the small Virginia town where he grew up and crosses paths with Hannah Jacobs, the only girl in high school who had ever rejected him. It's Hannah who once made him question the choices he had made, and it's Hannah who's making him question them all over again. But with the weight of a secret he's managed to hide from the world his entire adult life hanging over him, he can't afford to question his choices.

Hannah Jacobs had once made the choice to deny her feelings for Will Kincaid, at the time finding it the only possible option for a young girl intent on burying a nightmare she only wanted to forget. The life she's made for herself as a librarian in Lake Perdue is a quiet one, and she's hardly prepared for the day when Will rams his fancy Ferrari into her dependable old clunker. But for Hannah, Will Kincaid can only stir up memories she had long ago put away forever. And there's nothing at all good that can come from bringing them back to life again.

Meet the Author

Award winning, Bestselling author Inglath Cooper was born in Virginia. She is a graduate of Virginia Tech with a degree in English. She has written ten published novels and one novella. She fell in love with books as soon as she learned how to read. "My mom read to us before bed, and I think that's how I started to love stories. I think I read most of the books in my elementary school library."

That love for books translated into a natural love for writing and a desire to create stories that other readers could get lost in, just as she had gotten lost in her favorite books. Her stories focus on the dynamics of relationships, those between a man and a woman, mother and daughter, sisters, friends. They most often take place in small Virginia towns very much like the one where she grew up and are peopled with characters who reflect those values and traditions.

    Well done!

    Will Kincaid returns home to Lake Perdue following his successful, career-ending play in the Super Bowl. He's never prepared for anything but football and at 29 has no idea of what's next for himself. He runs into Hannah Jacobs, a young woman he once cared a lot for and who now bears no resemblance to the vibrant woman he once knew, inside and out. This is a story of two people trying to find their way and themselves after experiencing traumatic events. Hannah and Jacob somehow find a way to reconnect but their romance is hampered by the events from their past that are alive and unwell in the present. Theirs is a sweet relationship that struggles to survive while they attempt to help one another and figure out how to heal on their own. While their romantic interludes are sexy, the details are left to your imagination. Will is an honorable and extremely likable character who you want to succeed in this relationship. Hannah, however, has so much self loathing it is sometimes tough to stay sympathetic to her plight. She redeems herself near the end but it was rough going at times. It's a well written story of setbacks and triumph, told realistically with sensitivity. The secondary characters are interesting and consistent with a small-town environment (no secrets in this place!). I enjoyed the book as it was very interesting with a strong storyline and good dialogue. It's well-paced, although it dragged somewhat near the end, but not enough to alter my rating. (I was provided a copy of the book by the author for review.)

    Beautiful love story

    Reminding you that love is worth fighting for. I loved the characters, the story had not only a great love story, but addressed two very emotional issues. Despite these issues, these two were able to find their way back to each other. I loved this book. It was good for my heart and soul. Great job!

    This sounds kind of like a 'romantic mystery', Will obviously has a secret of some sort; Hannah likes him; and IF he likes her, is that the secret? NO, I think it's something much deeper. I'll have to read this one!!!
