Back in university, Julia didn’t realize what a great guy she had until she lost him. Now as a single mother and business woman, Julia meets up with the man she’s not stopped thinking about since they parted. Her heart longs for a second chance, but reality and the consequences of her previous actions build a wall that seem too big to scale.
Zeke always considered himself a great Christian, until he met Julia in university. Their attraction was too strong to ignore and the temptation too much for the “perfect” pastor’s son. Years later, he still carries the weight of guilt from their poor choices as well as the scars of his broken faith.
Will they find a second chance at love and happiness? Or are they bound to be punished for the sins of the past?
The thing I enjoyed the most about this novel is the differences between the two characters and how they grew from those days in university to who they are as adults. I like how the author subtly wove in redemption for all the characters in the story, even though some of them rejected the opportunity.
If you like clean contemporary romance, this book may be for you.
Just watch out for the goat.
It’s a mean one.
Single mom Julia Dare has a lot on her plate. A brand new Christian, she’s busy trying to run her own business, spend time with her widowed mother, and raise her young son, Max, despite his father’s less-than-ideal influence on him. When a big account from her event-planning business sends her to the Caliente Springs resort, she’s shocked to come face-to-face with Zeke Monroe, the resort’s general manager and her college sweetheart.
With his faith in tatters, Zeke Monroe is determined to keep the historic Caliente Springs resort running despite financial difficulties. But when Julia walks back into his life, he can’t ignore the feelings she stirs up. As they work together on an important client’s dream wedding, the fate of the resort soon depends on their success. When Zeke and Julia are pushed to their limits both personally and professionally, will their history put up walls between them or bring them together?
