Nash Hawthorne met the girl of his dreams when he was just a young boy, and he always told himself that one day he would make her his wife, but life ended up getting in the way and took him across the state line and to a whole new living environment... one that Tally didn't belong in. Through the years they lost touch, Nash moved onto to college, dated some, but never really found someone who quite "fit" with him like Tally. He has often thought of her, wondered what she is like now, and if that spark would still be there if they saw one another again. And now he might just get the answer to his question... he knew moving home to take a teaching job might have them crossing paths again, question is when they do will they find their instant connection again?

The minute Tally Fournette lost best friend Nash things in her life took a drastic turn, a turn that had her feeling a little lost and out of control, he was her safety net, and when he left she lost a part of herself... a part that she has never really been able to replace. She has since tried to let her feelings for Nash go, hoping that dating other men would fill the ache he left behind, but no one has ever been able to fill the void. So, when she learns that he has returned home she begins to wonder if it's finally their chance to be together, if fate's given them a second chance to salvage the connection they once shared... or if life will just get in the way again.

After meeting these two in the first installment in the series, I began to wonder if they'd be able to let go of all the hurt from their pasts and find their way back to one another... or if the damage would be to great. Tally struck a cord with me in the first installment, something about her really resonated with me, and left me hoping she would be able to find her well deserved happily ever after. Life left her a little rough around the edges, and not so willing to let others in, for fear of losing them in the end... but after a great struggle she finally found a path that suited her and rewarded her with a well deserved happiness that I hoped she'd find. I am really enjoying this new series from Ms. Trentham, not only are the stories unique, and oh so enjoyable, but there also equipped with some very endearing characters that you can't help but lose your heart to! 

Charming romance story with a southern twist, that's sure to warm your heart and leave you with a permanent smile!!
