Emmeline is on a weekend away in Las Vegas for Spring Break with her friends to celebrate her last year of school when she meets Nick. After initially feeling reluctant to have fun on her holiday she decides to throw caution to the wind when Nick dares her to trust him to show her how much fun letting go feels. And this is how she ends up having the most exciting night of her life and married in the Clover Chapel to a man she barely knows. However, it will be nine more years until they see each other again.
Emmeline's father is a high profile figure in New York who has controlled every aspect of her life. She has decided that she needs time out from her crazy busy life and accepts a teaching position in Prescott, Montana. A slower paced life is just what she needs right now, even her boyfriend of five years seems to have less time to spend with her these days and time apart is just what they need. Maybe absence will make the heart grow fonder and all that...
Nick is completed blindsided to come face to face with the beautiful Emmy, the girl he never stopped thinking about, his wife. Emmy does not feel the same way and despite the shock of seeing him again, she also remembers how bad it felt to wake up to an empty hotel room nine years ago. She can finally get closure on that part of her life and get his signature on the divorce papers. Nick is not so keen on Emmy's plan to end their 'marriage' and has conditions of his own, one week of dates with him before she makes her final decision.
One Emmy gets immersed in the town of Prescott she realizes just how much better her life feels, the people she becomes friends with are just so lovely, she loves her job and the chaos of city life is not something she wants to go back to. More worrying though is what is happening between her and Nick, there is still this intense attraction between them and not just on a physical level, they just click and everything just feels right around him. Apart from when she is feeling guilty about her current boyfriend.
Like the first book in this series there is a suspenseful element to this story, among all the feel good stuff is a person who seems set on harming Emmeline and it could be someone from her past, something to do with her father or indeed people from Nick's past. He had his reasons for leaving his wife and though they may have been valid to him at the time, he now fears that the danger he was protecting her from may now be knocking on her door in Prescott.
Enjoyable read, I definitely enjoyed the first book more but will continue on with the series as I am sure it will only get better :-)
“A dare’s a dare, Emmy. No matter how old you are. You can tell a lot about a person by their reaction to a dare.” Words of wisdom if I ever heard them! Well done Nicky boy! I approved of you right from this instance. His character was that perfect mix of alpha and gentleman that you don't see near enough in novels in my honest opinion. Usually the guys are on one side or the other. But here, as in Coppersmith Farmhouse, yes, the guys can be pushy, stubborn, and a little cocky. . . But they will go to war with a grizzly bear for the ones they care for if they think something threatens their well being.
Now, while time moves forward 9 years and there has been a little bit of a rift between them I will say one thing, I am a firm believer in fate, and everything happens for a reason and I think Devney's brilliantly portrays that here. She could have made them have a HEA right out of the gate, but she didn't take the easy way out here. She added conflict, and growing up, and how your priorities change and she added real life situations here guys! If you thought that lightning couldn't possibly strike twice in the same series think again! Devney has brought us another unforgettable story with plenty of emotions, small town perfection and characters that you want to pull up a chair, a bottle of wine and watch the sunset over the Jamison Valley.
