The first line of the synopsis snagged me - and the rest of the book made me fall in love. If you've ever had one of those relationships where your brain told you to brace yourself, but your heart told you to give it all you've got, you will be able to relate to this 'reluctant love' story. But if, like me, you are a true romantic at heart, you hang on for dear life and hope for a happy ending. As expected, there are some painful, tearful moments along the way. But they add a poignant touch to balance the self-deprecating humor that Amy Olle has woven throughout the story, and when you think all hope is lost, the true strength of the characters emerges in an ending that might make you weep with joy.
Emily is painfully shy, awkward, a bit of a klutz, and so full of social anxiety that your heart twists for her- repeatedly. Reeling from the loss of her beloved mother and the insanely cruel childhood rejection of her father, she's an expert at feeling bad about herself, without any help from the rest of an often-cruel world. She has a stutter that only gets worse as her stress increases. She's not a tall, willowy size 2, or even a size 8 for that matter. Like many other women, she compares herself to others, and comes up painfully short. She bemoans her lack of a 'thigh gap' - something many of us can easily appreciate. One failed relationship in college counts among her lengthy list of perceived failures, and reinforces her father's belief that no decent man would ever want her. Months after her mother has passed, Emily decides to move to the isolated island in the Great Lakes where she has fond memories - and her cousin, Mina - determined to put the past behind her.
So as you might expect, the first person she sees at the airport brings a painful memory along with him. Luke Nolan, is gorgeous, successful, confident and self-assured -- all the things she isn't, and all of the things she believes she can never be. When he finds her scrambling amidst a mountain of personal belongings scattered across the baggage carousel, he helps her collect herself - and she allows herself a brief glimmer of hope. When he climbs into a car driven by a feminine bombshell, her hopes are not only dashed, she starts to question her decision to move there, resolving to avoid him at all costs.
Avoiding him is not an option. But worse, what she doesn't know is that he's a burdened, broken man, angry at himself, full of his own sense of guilt and unworthiness. He thrives on shallow, short-term, superficial relationships. And whiskey. And he is determined not to let anyone - especially someone he finds to be as pure and genuine as Emily - get close enough to see who he really is.
Neither can deny their attraction, but both are determined to put limits on their relationship. Until they can't. Until they are each forced to face the one thing they can't run away from. Their sweetest mistake. I leave it to you to find out what it is ... and to fall in love with this story - and this series - for yourself.
