It’s been seven years since Daniel Finley left his hometown in Florida for the hustle and bustle of Chicago’s city life.
Since then, he’s worked hard for his position at the prestigious law firm Leighton & Associates, even when it’s caused distance and isolation from his family and friends. But that’s all about to change.
On his thirtieth birthday, he receives the one thing he never dared hope for. Something that was promised to him years earlier—a note. One simple sentence from the man he’s never been able to forget.
Six words will forever change the course of their lives.
Brantley Hayes has it all. Or so he thinks. When he first made the decision to take a job down in Florida, his family thought he was crazy. But, after years of living in the quiet beach town, he finally feels a sense of community. He’s surrounded himself with friends who are like family, has a job he loves, and owns a spectacular beachfront property that is his sanctuary.
Yet he still feels unfulfilled, as if a piece of the puzzle is missing, and he knows exactly which piece it is. On an impulse, he follows through with a promise he made years earlier. A promise to call home the one he sent away.
Nothing is as simple as it seems.
After years of separation, the former lovers are reunited, but Brantley wasn’t expecting to encounter the high walls now guarding Daniel’s heart.
Daniel may not be the same person he was when he left, but he knows that the first step to healing is the note in his hand.
This was such an awesome read.
We got to finally see who Finley this Cocky Stud Muffin was!!
Oh but we also got to see behind all the smoke & mirrors..
Finley in his youth was carefree, fun and was always self assured, never backed down from what he wanted and ALWAYS went after it...
It's obvious very early on he became a bit bitter and just wanted some closure due to some events that took place with a certain Love interest..
We get to meet Brantley aka The Professor and a few other amazing characters I am now anxious to meet.. plus old ones we all LOVE..
This was a super steamy story about second chances and how sometimes some sacrifices are supposed to be discussed and should never be one sided.. How are decisions are not always the right ones and we need to step back and see if they were made purely out of selfishness or possibly acted upon do to insecurities..
