Six years later Danny has become a well-known local builder who aspires to make his business known on national basis. His business partner contacts the best magazine in their trade and invites its best journalist to infomercial their company - and so Danny and Kat meet again. But can they revive their romance?
Danny and Kat were plausible main characters, their feelings and reactions mostly comprehensible, realistic and genuine.
The story line started in the present, flashed back to the past and returned flawlessly again to the present. The author provided a lot of emotional insight on how the hero/heroine felt during the different stages of their relationship. Generally, the main plot was well written and entertaining. There was a subplot that had to do only with Kat. This part of the book blended perfectly with the main plot and offered the necessary suspense element.
Speaking in general terms, the romance between Danny and Kat didn't develop quickly and tried to focus on their complex feelings. Mostly this was well done and entertaining enough. However, towards the middle of the book this endeavor became a bit tiresome and reminded me of a "casual" romance novel.
In any case, this was a nice and entertaining read.
Kat and Danny met when she was staying on the island for the summer between college semesters. Her sister was very strict and she had to hide her part-time job and spending time with Danny.
When Kate and Danny meet again about 6 years later, he finds out that she changed her name and is now a writer for a magazine on architecture and his business is her next project. He doesn't want anything to do with her because of the way she left him several years ago. She left him to protect him but wouldn't tell him anything except that the relationship wouldn't work. During the time apart, neither one got over the other one. Danny still loves her but doesn't want to get close to her since he doesn't trust her. When Kate sees Danny, she feels that connection to him again, that she's never found anywhere else.
Details start coming out about why Kate left, her family issues, her change in college, etc., and her belief that Danny married right after their breakup.
The breakup has been used in many stories but Ms. Hayes makes it believable and doesn't let the characters just jump back into a relationship. Danny just isn't sure he can trust Kate and that causes heart break. I shed a few tears for both Danny and Kate. I loved the ending of the story and look forward to reading more of Ms. Hayes' books.
