She’s the only one who ever loved him—and the only one he can never have.
Jude lost everything one spring day when he crashed his car into an apple tree on the side of the road. A man is dead, and there's no way he can ever right that wrong. He’d steer clear of Colebury, Vermont forever if he could. But an ex-con in recovery for his drug addiction can’t find a job just anywhere.
For Sophie Haines, coming face to face with the man who broke her heart is gut-wrenching. Suddenly, he’s everywhere she turns. It’s hard not to stare at how much he’s changed. The bad boy who used to love her didn’t have big biceps and sun-kissed hair. And he’d never turn up volunteer in the church kitchen.
She knows it’s foolish to yearn for the man who returned all the heartsick letters she wrote him in prison. But the looks he sends her now speak volumes.
No one wants to see Sophie and Jude back together, least of all Sophie's police chief father. But it's a small town. And forbidden love is a law unto itself.
I’m enjoying this new series from Sarina Bowen. So. Very. Much. Y’all know I loved Bittersweet, the first book in the series. Steadfast was every bit as good – and a second chance romance (YAY!) – but totally different. It dealt strongly with addiction and the effects and I found myself totally engrossed in Jude’s storyline. Such a great addition to a wonderful series. I can’t recommend it (the book and the series) highly enough!
I just heard this one for the first time on the radio this weekend. Gotta say, it’s pretty catchy. It also kinda reminds me of home.
I spent some time at Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens on Saturday morning, taking photos of the lotus that are in bloom right now. They’re so pretty that photos don’t even do them justice. I tried though. 🙂
