In this book, Matt Powell returns to the small beach town he stayed in with his parents as a kid. It's a time in his life where a change is needed and some quiet downtime is exactly what he needs. He can't believe it when he finds his childhood friend, Katie Vanburen, still living next door. They haven't been in touch in many years but the strong pull toward her is still there, only now Katie is all grown up and so are the feelings Matt has.
This is a book I definitely recommend to everyone. I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
This is the first I have read from Babette James and have to say it was sweet and funny. I loved that even though they have not seen each other for years Katie and Matt easily pick up where they left off. Their relationship is unique and so carefree. The love they had is still there and seeing how mature they are now is just icing on the cake. Matt is all about working and Katie is exactly what he needs right now. Together these two are so comfortable round each other and the passion that explodes between is hot. They might have been young at the time but the separation Babette put between them just made that love combustible. Kissing Katie might be sweet, romantic but the bond between these two is hotter than ever. Definitely an author worth keeping up with judging from her romance in this book.
What a lovely story! I was particularly entranced by the setting detail in the first chapter - the sights and smells of the beach setting were so vivid that it was easy to picture and added to the delight of Matt reliving his childhood memories and finding his old friend Kate still there. I loved how their romance progressed, with a new sexual attraction as adults combined with good memories of their friendship. Though Kate is wary of starting something with Matt, knowing he will be gone in a few weeks, he is charming and persuasive and the resulting love scenes are tender and steamy. Family plays a big role in the story, and affects their choices and decisions, adding some tension into the mix. Overall it was a pure delight to read. 5 stars!
