Carmen is stuck in her hometown. And wanting nothing more than to get out. What's worse is Sully, the carnie that broke her heart and left her standing in a parking lot waiting is back. And no one told her. Looking sexier than ever, she doesn't know why he's back. All she knows is she can't be near him. He still has that invisible pull that she can't seen to resist.
Sully has wanted nothing more than a home. To set roots down. And Homs is where Carmen is. Destroying her all those years ago was never his intention. He didn't want the carnie life for her. But now he's back and he wants her. But she is reluctant to even speak to him. Until she finds out he owns the company building the boardwalk.
As these two fight their never ending feelings, truths come out and betrayals not for seen cause one of them to run. Will this be a repeat of the past or will they find their way back home??
It's no secret that I love the way Sharla Lovelace writes her stories. This one was no exception. This book was so good...a second chance at love story...which I love.
When she was 18, Carmen was ready to run off and join the carnival to be with Sully. They were together 21 days and she was sure that he was The One. She had no doubts. He obviously did, though, because he left town without a word to her.
Ever since that summer, she's avoided him when the carnival came to town. She even got married and divorced since then. She's good with never running into Sully again.
So, it's a shock when the carnival leaves and Sully doesn't. He's in her town, in her grocery store...and she is not happy to know that this time he doesn't plan on leaving.
Sully is through with the carnival. He spent his life touring with it, but now that it's time for him to settle somewhere, he can't imagine doing it anywhere but the place where he fell in love with Carmen. He just doesn't count on the small town mentality. He was the man who ruined their hometown girl. They don't forgive or forget easily.
The irony is that Sully is finally ready to stop moving and stay in Charmed just as Carmen is ready to finally leave. She says she's going on vacation, but she's really not planning on coming back. She's always wanted to travel and her small town is slowly smothering her...something that's even worse now with Sully in town.
I loved this book. Carmen is smart and self deprecating. She doesn't let people beat her down. I loved her for that. Her ex-husband is the mayor and is still in love with her. Sully obviously still has feelings for her and she's quite honestly fed up with it all. She's tired of being alone and judged in this small town. She wants out.
The book is told entirely from Carmen's point of view, but this author does an amazing job revealing the heroes thoughts and motivation even though you aren't in his pov. My heart broke for him...especially as details started to come out. I actually felt really bad for her ex-husband, too. Yeah, he's not the greatest guy, but he's obviously still in love with Carmen. In the end I felt bad for him.
There's a lot of angst and emotion to this story, but there are also lots of light-hearted moments. I loved the fact that the entire town is built around honey and Carmen hates the food. There's also a seriously poignant moment that I loved with a diner cook in the West.
Just a great book. I highly recommend and cannot wait for the next book in the series.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
Sully has returned to Charmed to put down some roots. He’s spent many years traveling with his family’s carnival and now he wants to leave that nomadic lifestyle behind him. Maybe, just maybe, he has also come back to win back Carmen’s heart. Too bad she wants nothing more than to leave her small town behind her. Yes, it’s one heck of a ride to see these two find their HEA. Both are passionate and stubborn, so there are a lot fireworks, metaphorically and physically!
Both characters were very realistic and flawed, with a great sense of humor. Those of the very reasons while I fell in love with both of them. Throughout the pages of the book, they do hurt one another, but it’s out of self-preservation. I really hoped they could finally let their walls down and let each other in completely! I liked the romance between them, but I also loved the fact that the deeper story was about forgiveness, discovering what makes you happy, and reaching out and grabbing it.
“But fate is something else. You don’t tempt it by planning things to go wrong.” ~Sully~
“Fate is what we make it.” ~Carmen~
I loved going back to Charmed to all the quirky characters. They always make me feel right at home. It was wonderful catching up with Lanie and Nick from the first book, and I loved how Lovelace gave us a little glimpse of Allie and Bash’s story that’s coming up next. I can’t wait!!!! As with the first book, my only regret was having to leave the people and the town of Charmed. I can’t wait until the next book coming in the fall! YAY!
