Micah is a Marine who also happens to be a single dad to a son with special needs. Kat is the young principal at the school that Micah’s son, Ben, attends. The two meet the morning of the first day of school. Sparks fly between the two of them, but each knows romance isn’t in the cards for them. He’s busy with Ben, and Kat isn’t ready to give her heart to someone else after losing her fiancé two years ago. As the two spend more time together, it gets harder for them to resist their attraction to one another. There is some drama from outside forces, but it doesn’t become the central focus of the book. The central focus is trust, taking chances, and learning to love again.
Micah is sexy, but his real beauty is his soul. He’s a fantastic father, and all those things combine to make him the perfect hero. Don’t get me wrong, I love a bad boy who is reformed, but it was great seeing a good guy who is just as sexy as some of my favorite bad boys. Kat was beautiful, but like with Micah, it wasn’t her most prominent feature. She had a soul just like Micah which made them perfect for one another, and Ben, Micah’s son, completed them. I loved Ben’s character. He wasn’t defined by his condition. He had his moments that broke my heart, but he kept his head up and kept going. He had the power to change people’s perceptions and ideas of what being a child with special needs is. To me, he was the real hero of the book. All the secondary characters were well-developed as well, especially Micah’s friend, Lawson, and Kat’s sister, Julie, and best friend, Val. I love when a writer builds those characters so I’m anxiously awaiting their stories in later books. The pacing of the story and their romance was very realistic. They two didn’t immediately fall into bed together, even though they wanted to, and that worked very well with their characters. The two would be very cautious and not enter into a quick and fast relationship. It would take them time to develop that trust with each other, and Annie Rains stayed true to that.
Again, a wonderful debut!!!! Great story, great characters, and very well-written. I see that the next book will be Lawson and Julie’s story. I can’t wait to return to their small coastal town and catch up with my newest friends.

I never quite connected with the heroine. Kat Chandler is the new principal of the elementary school. Apparently, vandals are spray-painting bad things about her on the school walls – but the why is not really addressed. Maybe it’s just the hook the author used to get the kids into her after-school program, but then why not just deface the school, why have the vandalism directed specifically at her? Kat apparently grew up in the small town where the story takes place, but I never got any sense of belonging to the community from her. There was so much potential to bring out about Kat’s character from the loss of her Marine fiancée two years prior to the story, to her previous career before becoming a principal (I’m assuming she was a teacher, but that subject wasn’t broached), to her relationships with her sister and best friend. Unfortunately, everything just seemed to be superficial.
The story was OK, but it could have been really good had the author done her homework about the military and added considerably more depth to the heroine. This is the first of, at least, three books in the series – however, I won’t be buying the rest.
I bought the second book because I liked the writing style and the characters... I'm really hoping I like the story there and that the author was able to correct these items... I know that's bad to be so not picky but it's important to me as a wife of a Marine.
