What she doesn’t expect is for Dane to pursue her with a determination that makes her resolve waver. His ability to calm the storm that rages inside her and the way he makes her pulse race is a dangerous combination. She is risking everything. Can Emma set aside her fears and give Dane a chance? Her walls will break, her heart will be tested and she will never be the same.

Absolute Sweetness! Emma is coming home again after over 10 years to heal her mind and spirit. Dane can’t wait for her return. He hasn’t seen her since he was a boy but Dane has been in love with Emma that long. Lia, Emma’s best friend and Dane’s sister knows that Dane is in love and convinces Emma to take a chance.
Alex has been Emma’s rock for years. They have seen each other through the bad and the good. He’s moving back with Emma. When Dane has his first run in with Alex, Dane reacts immaturely. While I can’t say that I blame him at first due to the circumstances. His keeping it up even when his brother and sister try to tell him he’s screwing it up made me just want to shake him. The pain and set back that it caused Emma was unfair.
I was glad when Dane and Emma finally worked things out and even when Dane and Alex worked it out. I was a little disappointed that right after Dane screwed up by making an assumption that Emma turned around and did the same thing. I loved how Dane was there for Emma and didn’t let go.
The ending was charming and full of hope for the future for Dane and Emma.
