This time it definitely worked. Emily is a strong-willed but seemingly lost character. She's thirty and bounces from job to job, home to home, etc... She's never on time and is a little unprofessional, but she's quirky and smart in an nonthreatening way. I did not like Emily at the beginning, she grew on me, lost my trust, and eventually regained it toward the end of the book.
Matt is a retired baseball player, moving back to his hometown to open a large discount store that is threatening the small town's local business.
This is where things get interesting. Emily launches a campaign to save local stores while Matt opens his new store. Things are kind of prickly for a while and it's pretty entertaining. The two characters have great banter when they're fighting over their businesses and you can definitely sense the other types of tension in their relationship.
They also have a sort of "sordid" history. Emily used to date Matt's brother, but he was "like a puppy who always made mistakes". After Emily and Jon broke up she and Matt shared a steamy moment that neither one of them had forgotten it.
I loved the history of everything in this book. The small town, the friendships, the sorrow. Coming from a small town it really resonated with me. There is so much sadness in Matt's life but he is constantly trying to stay positive and he truly believes in what he's doing.
Of course, Emily believes in her campaign as well. I also really liked how the two of them came together despite their differences and managed to make it work for a while. There was, of course, the typical drama and there were definitely things that were said that hurt. (This is where Emily lost me, to be honest.)
The ending was done wonderfully and it didn't seemed too rush at all. I loved the resolution of everything and the fact that they got through it all together.
This was a great read, check it out if you love sweet romances.
But really, this book is about much more than that. It’s about how our past ,especially in our teenage years mold us, about family dynamics,, love lost and found and our insecurities. But above all, that with love and trust in ourselves and others, we can overcome everything.
Pick up this book, and enjoy the story. I certainly did.
