This story centers around Summer Foster, a sweet girl who's confidence, and self worth has the torn and shattered by years of abuse both mental and physical from her Husband Ryan. Eventually after a particularly vicious night, where Summer is left broken in more ways than one she finally escapes him. She takes up residence in Cape Isle and starts to bravely re-build her life, buying a home and opening a successful bakery business. It's also here she meets Grant Hamilton, an ex marine who has returned home to run his fathers construction business.
The chemistry and attraction between Grant and Summer is pretty instant, but Summer has so many insecurities that Grant knows he has to tread carefully.
Grant is amazing, caring, patient, loving, protective, all in the right proportions to make your heart swoon. You won't be able to resist him and neither could Summer.!
As their relationship progress's you can't help but feel involved with this couple and get invested in their outcome. Their love is sweet and kind and compassionate and you really feel that they have "made it" when Summer's past comes back to haunt them in the most horrific way. Although this twist was a little predictable, it was written perfectly for Grant and Summer's story and i really worried as to how the book would end for them, but i won't tell you !!! You really should pick this book up! This book isn't just about a beautiful love story, its also carry's a serious reminder that people do survive abusive relationships and do have the strength to escape and survive
I always love meeting and reading new authors :) When I read the blurb for this book, I was hooked. Wow. Talk about a great read.
From the prologue, we see what Summer has to endure at the hands of her husband. My heart broke for her. She has no one but her older aunt since she lost her parents while she was in college. He was supposed to be the one to love her and keep her safe. He was a monster. By a miracle, she was able to leave. Fast forward 9 months later and Summer has moved to a new town to start her life over, owning her own bakery.
I was so happy she got out of that situation , but deep down she was still guarded and shy. Her friend at the bakery Lexi was a great friend. While at work one day, Grant (who is best friends with Lexi's brother Nick) stops by.. What a sweetheart. He is finally home from doing 10 years in the Marines and decides to retire and work construction with his dad. Once he and Summer meet, the attraction was instant.
I am not one for insta love, etc..but what I loved about this is that even though they had the instant attraction, Grant genuinely wanted to get to know Summer and could tell she was dealing with alot. She finally let her guard down and they became friends. Their story flowed nicely and you'll fall for Grant. Now we have to wonder what happens to Ryan. Is he out of the picture? What happens with Summer and Grant? The other characters were great too and now I am looking forward to Nick's story. :) Take a chance on this beautiful and emotional story.. A story about finding love again when you thought it wasn't possible.
Summer is finding herself in a new town, starting over after she stands up to the horrible things in their past.
Grant, fresh out of the Marines, finally finds a forever woman. Together they find something just for them, a love that was always meant to be. Tragically strikes and the epilogue leaves you feeling warm, happy, and content like the characters.

The book started off with a shocker of a storyline which was quite risky I think, but I also believe the author pulled it off really well and once over the initial shock and the first couple of chapters I could really get to grips with the story.
The story flowed quite nicely, and the characters gelled really well, there were a couple of things mentioned that I thought " yeah right like that's convenient " but maybe that's just the cynic in me, But all in all I really enjoyed the story.
I never give away much about the story because I honestly don't want to ruin it for the readers but what I will say is this....
There is one disgusting pig of a man.
One broken frightened damaged naive girl.
One sexy Hot ex Marine.
some super bestie girlfriends, and one very loyal family, and not lets forget about the dog, OMG.... If you can call it a dog, more like a mini horse ha ha!
This is definitely a sweet, sugary Romance with a cherry on the top
( if you pardon my pun ha ha ) you'll know what I mean if you read this story, it's quite heartbreaking, with a lot of danger and fear, plenty of sexual tension a whole lot of loving, just how I love my stories.
I shall definitely be looking out for more books from this author
I gave this book 5* which I think is pretty good for a first book!
Well done to you Allie Able!
Can't wait to see more from Allie Able!
