This sweetly conceived romance, with characters that are easy to relate to and appreciate, the author has managed to create a believable romance that is solidly grounded in emotions and situations that every reader can relate to.
Told from the point of view of the characters, this inclusion of their inner dialogue helps to define their personalities and provide a sense of people as well as the growth of their relationship. Dimension in the story is also increased with the inclusion of family members and their interactions and viewpoints: we are all aware that no relationship exists in a bubble of just two people and this is a welcome inclusion to both deepen and enhance the story.
This is a romance, and there is a personal choice for an author: making the romance completely sweet, or enhancing and utilizing the more erotic elements of a relationship to further detail the story. Here Christy Hayes manages to add tastefully written and wholly time-appropriate sex scenes that do manage to enhance the feeling of commitment between the characters without overriding the tale of two souls coming together to make a happily ever after.
I received an eBook copy from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

How do you know when you have found "The One"? You feel it deep in your soul, something just clicks into place. Tyler found "the one" in Jill Jennings. He watched her from afar one summer while working as a fishing guide, now he is back to claim Jill for his own. The author did an excellent job of making you believe in these characters, their emotional trials, and of the spark between them. I liked the fact that not every other page was about sex. The story line developed these two people into something believable. Tyler was willing to make the same sacrifices that he was asking of Jill. This is what true love and partnership is all about. I really enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it. I give it 4 stars.

I received a copy of this book from the author for my honest review:
This is the first book I have read by Christy Hayes and I really enjoyed it. I thought it was a great romance book about Ty and Jill. The story line kept you very interested and did not slow down. This book was easy to read and was hard to put down. I look forward to reading the second book when it comes out about Olivia.
