Riley, just turned 18, leaves her emotionally abusive Mother and goes to South Caroline to live with her estranged Dad while she goes to school. However, she has some definite issues to deal with but has the summer to do so.
Hunter, 21, is a very messed up young man. He is a summer lifeguard and spends his days in the sun and nights investigating young ladies’ beds. He does only one night stands and is never wanting for company.
Both are now living with Scott, Riley’s father. Scott is Hunter’s lawyer and has allowed him to live in the garage apartment during the summer. Scott is completely tied up with his cases but tries to find time to work closely with Riley on rebuilding their relationship.
Sparks fly between Riley and Hunter as Scott pleads for them to go slowly. Will they get together? What about the mistakes made by both of them? Can Hunter give up his wild lifestyle?
One of the most interesting parts of the story has to do with Hunter and his brother. For a guy to be going through that...the read is worth it to find out what happens there and what Riley has to do to break him out of it alone.
Riley is leaving behind a toxic relationship with her mother and embarking on a journey to sunny Florida where she begins a renewed relationship with her father. Planning for college and a future brighter than her past Riley arrives at her fathers oppulant home and soon meets Hunter.
Enter bad boy. It is difficult to fall in love with Hunter as a reader from go as he really is that guy your mother warns you away from. A one night stand heart breaker Hunter never claims to be anything else. But he has layers and he does have a heart and that heart has suffered.
We follow the two through a quick attraction and an attempt to make it into something more.
Ms. Lafortune writes with a quick precise hand. Her descriptive are clear and anything but flowery. You get a definite feel for the world she paints but she doesn't dawdle as she moves through the scenes creating a story with chemistry, pain and healing.
I enjoyed watching Riley learn to love alongside Hunter's struggle to do the same. The father daughter reconnection was refreshing especially after having such a rough upbringing with no parental love from her mother.
This is a wonderful love story with secrets, and twists. One I truly enjoyed reading.
There was also the insa-love that always makes the story less interesting. Everyone likes to read about the leading up to the catch. But once both characters are instantly in love, it kinda takes the excitement out of the story.
Most of the book felt rushed and immature. But I still liked the overall story. There was good character background and hidden details that came out towards the end. I wouldn't discourage anyone from reading this book. But beware of annoying 18 year old antics.
I could almost hear the ocean and smell the Friday night campfires on the beach.
This book from a "new author" is a must read.
