After spending years wondering who she was, tattoo artist Cait Weatherby finally found her answers on the sandy shores of Silver Island. With two half sisters she never knew existed, a group of friends she adores, and a devastatingly charming admirer who flirts with her at every turn, she’s ready to figure out her next steps. The trouble is, Cait lives in the shadows of a dark past, and she can’t afford complications that might cause her to lose the family she’s only just found—complications like blue-eyed boatbuilder Brant Remington, who is as open as she is guarded. If only the sexy charmer would take the hint…
Brant is Cait’s opposite in every way, but he’s drawn to everything about the sexy newcomer—from the quiet strength that rivals the caution in her mossy-green eyes to her tough facade that he can’t wait to strip away.
As Brant works his magic, Cait’s walls come down. But as sweet as that feels, Cait knows how quickly good things can turn bad. It’s going to take more than a little trust to beat the ghosts of her past and claim the future they both deserve.
I loved Maybe We Will, which I read last summer. I can’t wait to read this book. This is Cait’s story; we got a short introduction to the complex character in the previous book, and now we get to learn much more about her. Brant is a swoony gentleman who can’t help but rescue a damsel in distress and then fall in love with her. This book is sweet, swoony, and romantic as this couple navigates demons in the past and future as well as their struggles and fears with each other. The characters are later in life but young at heart. Cait is significantly damaged, and even though it isn’t detailed, it is a central part of the story. I do love the happy ending and their dreams coming true.
Cait is damaged by her past but not broken now; she must choose between the life she knows and the new life and family awaiting her. Can she give up her past?
Of course, the man she is trying to avoid also seems to be her savior. Brant is charming her but hasn’t yet earned his way into her good graces, but maybe the forced proximity of joint custody will change that.
I got to admit this book is quirky, but I love it. I also like getting Brant’s pov he truly is a nice guy. But Cait doesn’t trust easily.
Brant is amazing and how he handles Caits confession is truly swoon-worthy. Watching her push love away is heartbreaking because she is scared and damaged. The terrible truths come out, and she finally drops her walls and lets him in. Ah, nothing like a steamy scene in the ocean of a private beach to move the relationship forward.
This book’s bra brigade is hilarious, but I love the small-town support. Ah, the most challenging thing is often the most rewarding as Cait discovers she has to confront her past to move on to her future. And what a future it is with a swoony man and a perfect ending to this story.
