About the Book: Seven years ago, Cambri Blaine fled her small hometown of Bridger, Colorado after her senior year ended in a fiasco. Only Jace Sutton knew the real reason why—that she was a spineless coward. Now, seven years later, her father's been in an accident and needs help, and Cambr has no choice but to return home. So with trepidation, she takes a leave of absence from the landscape architecture firm where she works and boards a plane, hoping against hope that Jace is no longer around and that the past can stay where it belongs—in the past. If only life worked that way. Jace never expected to see Cambri again. After she’d led him on, bruised his heart, and left town without a backward glance, he was forced to pick up the pieces and try not to hate her for it. Eventually, he put it behind him and moved on, creating a life for himself in his beloved hometown. But now that Cambri is back and looking more beautiful and sophisticated than ever, some of those old feelings resurface, and Jake instinctively knows, for the sake of his heart, that he needs to avoid her at all costs. If only it were that easy.
My Review: I really loved this one and thought it was just darling! Jace was the passionless boyfriend in the previous book and this one was all about him. Something seemed to be holding him back from his relationship with Eden and I kept wondering what (or who) it was. We find out why in this book--Cambri. Cambri runs at the first sign of trouble and seems to do so over and over again. She's scared and wants to protect herself. I loved watching her learn about herself and seeing her grow up and mature. Not everyone reaches that point by the time they're an adult (18).
Jace was fabulous in this book! He's a manly man who loves to work hard and help others. I loved how selfless he is, even when it's hard for him to be that way. The way he handled running into Drew and Eden especially proved what a great man he is. He's had his heart broken, yet when it comes down to it, he'll do what he needs to do, even if it gets broken again.
And a side note--I loved Cambri's grumpy father--he's a marshmallow underneath all that crust.
