2.5/5 stars I am always in the mood for a good romance, so when I saw this one come available for review, I thought it sounded like a sweet love story. I absolutely adored the friendships in this book. They were so well developed and I truly felt the connection between the characters. However, I really struggled with the romance of this one. Alec and Faith are two people who carry an immense amount of pain within themselves. My heart broke for both of them and their situations and I was looking forward to seeing these two fall in love and help heal the others' hurts. While this does eventually happen, the journey was a difficult one. Alec is very hot and cold with Faith and that always drives me crazy. For someone as fragile as Faith, I loathed seeing him hurt her. At one point in the book I remember thinking that I wish they would cut all ties and have that be the end. It was that frustrating. I also really struggled to feel a connection between them. Something was so formal and felt off to me, so I found myself not being able to connect to my characters on the emotional level I needed to fully become invested in their relationship. That's not to say I don't understand where Alec is coming from. He feels he is in an impossible situation and he isn't ready to let go of the guilt and pain of his past in order to move on with his life. Faith comes out of nowhere and completely blindsides him, making him feel all these feelings he never thought he could feel again. I think I could have handled it had there not been so much back and forth on his feelings. I understand he is troubled and doesn't know how to proceed but it just ruined the romance for me. I think what really upset me most is how after Faith opened up to Alec and told him about her family and how she feels, he would still continually hurt her. He hurts her, but he can't stay away from her, thus confusing her even more with his conflicting feelings. I also wish there had been a bit more build up on Alec's motivation to make things right at the end. We spend the whole book with him struggling with what he thinks is right, and then it's solved rather quickly. It just seemed too easy and I felt it would have taken him longer to come to his senses than it did. I am happy with the way the book ended though, because ultimately I did want to see these two find their happily-ever-after. Once Alec stopped being so hot and cold with Faith, I ended up enjoying their scenes together and started to believe in the romance. Unfortunately by that point, it was so late it was too hard to overlook all that had transpired. While this didn't work for me especially, I think many will enjoy the angst filled romance. The friendships and the secondary characters were really a bright spot for me, so I was really happy to see that added layer that a lot of books overlook. I also adored the setting, as it transported me to the ocean and the beautiful scenery North Carolina has to offer. I may still go back and try Moran's Return To Me and see if I have better luck with Cole and Mia's story.

Life has dealt a nasty deal to Faith Armstrong and yet she goes on with a good and caring heart. Life has also dealt a nasty deal to bestselling horror novelist Alec Winston and it is affecting his ability to write. An invitation from his brother to spend the summer in Wilmington Beach might be just the thing to blast through his writer’s block. Faith Armstrong has finally gathered the courage to leave her past behind and accepted a job as a private tutor, hoping for a fresh start on the North Carolina coast. These two damaged individuals just might be perfect for each other. Faith is incredibly strong although she doesn’t appear that way from the outside. But I absolutely fell for her. Alec has grown comfortable wallowing in his pain and misery. When Faith breaks through his gloom he can write again but can she kick start his heart as well? I’ll admit there were times in this book that I hated Alec for striking out in pain at the easiest target, Faith. But when he gets the stick out of his ass he is a pretty good guy. This is the second in the series but can be read stand alone. Kelly Moran will have you laughing and crying and squirming and sighing. Another fabulous story.

Kelly Moran has done it again. I absolutely adore this book. It made me laugh, it choked me up, it made me want to throw my beautiful ARC across the room. Alec and Faith were both such wonderful, wounded souls. Alec has finally hit the wall and it has manifested as a huge case of writer's block. Faith is moving into a new phase of her life and realizing just how awful the old phase really was. When the two realize they have off the charts chemistry and are helping each other with their hurdles they agree to a summer fling. How often does THAT work? With passions and stress levels rising, Faith and Alec aren't sure what to do, but each knows they don't want to do it without the other. Their journey is sweet, sexy, and gut wrenching. I felt absolutely ALL the feels in this book. It was just that great. I can't wait to see what Moran gives us next
