About the Book:
Famously beautiful model Willow Bradford is taking a temporary break from her hectic schedule to work as the innkeeper at her family's small-town bed-and-breakfast. She was enjoying the peace of her hometown, Merryweather, Washington, right up until she came face-to-face with Corbin Stewart, the man she loves to hate. A thoughtful rule-follower by nature, Willow threw caution to the wind four years ago when she entrusted her heart to Corbin--and suffered the consequences when it all fell apart.
Former NFL quarterback Corbin is forceful, charming, and accustomed to getting what he wants . . . except where Willow Bradford is concerned. Unable to forget her, he's never stopped regretting what happened between them. When their paths unexpectedly cross again, he's determined to make her give him a second chance.
When a decades-old missing persons case finds Corbin and Willow working together, they're forced to confront their past and who they've become--and whether they can risk falling for one another all over again.
Willow and Corbin are two people filled with heartache, remorse and regrets that are blessed with a second chance. It was evident from the beginning that their journey to "happily ever after" would be emotionally intense and passionate requiring them to wade through a lot of past hurts and lingering pain. I loved the characterization of these two. Willow is the quintessential "girl next door" who is loyal to a "T", and there is just one word to describe Corbin- "charming." His charm and magnetism flows throughout the entire plot, but Wade pulls back the layers and shows his vulnerability, too- especially where Willow is concerned. There is even a sweetness and charm about his trials as a "rookie" Christian! Wade is raw and honest with Willow facing her past mistakes while delivering a message of grace. The secondary plots- the mystery behind the missing person and a new adventure for Zander- not only enhanced the main storyline but also gave a glimpse into what may be ahead for Britt, the third Bradford sister. Enjoyed the wild and crazy romance roller coaster ride with Willow and Corbin complete with a charming ending!
