Imagine the worst day of your life. Immerse yourself in the details. How did you feel? Who were you with? What were the consequences?
Recalling my darkest day is as simple as typing a few search terms into a web browser. It only took thirty minutes for me to become the center of a media frenzy that caught the attention of an entire country.
So I hid.
Nine months later and I’m getting better. Moved two hours from home, landed my dream job, and met a delicious new guy.
Healing is that simple, right?

Zoe Baker hasn’t had an easy life. She moves to the small town of New Point to get away and try to find some calm. Caught up in a media frenzy she needed to go where no one knew her, knew what she has been through or her past. Her parents passed away when she was young and her brother Blake has always looked out for Zoe and tried to protect her anyway he could. She goes to New Point alone in hopes of healing, forgetting and trying to move on the calm beach in New Point. She lands her dream job, one that truly makes her happy again but she’s still holding on to her secret….
“The funny thing about secrets is that in your mind they seem small. They are tiny pieces of information that maintain a speck in a lifetime of memories. Only when the secret is released in the wild does it become obvious the mammoth weight of what you hid”
Miles is a sexy as sin bartender, or so Zoe thinks. He actually owns the Bar and the house right down the beach from her. He is sweet, caring and is instantly drawn to Zoe the minute he meets her. He is extremely patient with Zoe knowing that she is holding back and is hiding something. He does get frustrated and has a hard head and sometimes him running away is what he thinks is best. We all know that’s not the answer and it takes running away to sometimes see exactly what your running away from.
“I never lay my cars on the table like this, Zoe. There’s a depth that I can’t resist. I want to uncover your secrets”
The connection between these two is undeniable. It’s been evident since day one, they both felt it but does it turn into something more? Can Zoe ever let herself trust Miles and let him in? Will he push too much and drive her away? Can she ever get over what happened in the past and move forward or does the past come back to haunt her once again?
“Miles is so sure of himself, strong. He knows what he wants out of life, and I’m still trying to put myself back together”
I really enjoyed this book. It takes you on a journey of pain, acceptance and finding life again. I read this book in one sitting and couldn’t put it down. Once the story starts you get sucked in! I look forward to delving more into some of the secondary characters, especially Zoe’s brother Blake. I know his story is going to be amazing. A Football Star, always in the spotlight, can he ever find love? I give this book 4 of 5 stars. I look forward to reading the next book in the series and hope it’s about Blake !
