What happens when life throws you a curveball?
Chase Roberts is the quintessential Good Guy. Attractive, athletic, intelligent and successful, the former college baseball star and one-time major league prospect is the kind of guy any woman would love to take home to Mama. Except there's one small problem: Chase has never really gotten over his former best friend--and first love--Jolene "Jo" Westwood, who broke his heart as a teen. Now, all grown up with two thriving businesses, Chase has enough to worry about.
Jo Westwood just wants to come home to Del Rio, Texas, help nurse her grandmother back to health and go back to her calm--okay, boring and lonely--life in Austin once the summer's over. Unfortunately (fortunately?), her best-laid plans come to a screaming halt the moment she accidentally bumps into her former best friend--and first love--Chase Roberts in the feminine hygiene aisle. The cute boy she once knew has become a HOT man. A hot man who seemingly hates her. Great.
As the long, hot summer drags on, Chase and Jo find themselves spending more and more time together, resurrecting not-so dead feelings and putting the past behind them. Unfortunately, summer only lasts so long, and even love may not be able to survive long-held secrets that threaten to tear them apart.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Please note I was given an advanced copy of this book by the author and asked to write a review. First I am an avid reader but I usually can’t get interested in romance. Biographies, thrillers, and historical books are usually more my cup of tea. Having said that this book had me hooked from the first page. The author used enough humor to keep me chuckling while I turned the pages while mixing in plenty of serious conversation and conflict to keep me wondering what would happen next. The character development is great and before the book ended I felt like each of the main characters were friends of mine. When the book ended I felt like some friends had just left and I wondered what would happen next. I will be anxiously awaiting the author’s next release.
