Trent Rockwell has it all—a thriving legal practice, co-ownership of the Rockwell Resort, and a big, loving family. And yet his failed marriage to Reese Nicholson has haunted him for ten long years. Now that he has moved back to Cape Cod Bay to help run his family’s resort, he is surrounded by memories of Reese…and he can’t stop longing for the woman he’d always believed was his one true love.…
At nineteen, artist Reese Nicholson was swept off her feet by the handsome, charming, and incredibly sensual Trent Rockwell. After a whirlwind courtship, they married and moved to New York City, where they hoped all of their personal and professional dreams would come true. But six months later, Reese returned to Rockwell Island brokenhearted and disillusioned.

For a decade, Trent and Reese carefully kept their distance. But all it takes is one accidental late-night encounter to immediately stir the desires they have both tried to bury deep. Powerless to resist the heat between them, every passionate kiss, loving caress, and heartfelt apology draws them closer together. So close that they can’t help but wonder if the promises they once made to love each other forever are still true…

Trent Rockwell has come home to work.  Reese hasn’t seen her ex-husband in a very long time.  This would make a perfect beach read no matter what time of year – there’s always a beach somewhere that has nice weather.  Doesn’t matter if you go in the summer or fall.  Just to be able to sit, get rid of you’re your stress, and just enjoy this book.

It’s nice to know that a second chance with your first love is possible.  Nothing is easy and the authors show that here.  I loved the fact that our male character figured out that he screwed up royally and is willing to fix it.  Love comes through from beginning to end – an end that has a happily ever after.

This is one of those books that I look forward to reading again.  I haven’t read book one yet but didn’t need it to enjoy book two – can be read as a stand-alone.  The authors also don’t leave you with a cliffhanger so if you missed Cape Cod Kisses you can now go back and read that one.  If you’re a fan of contemporary romances then you might want to check this one out.  It’s a book that may have you reminiscing about your own marriage – where you said your vows and where you fell in love.  Can’t wait to see what these authors have in store for their readers next.


Oh Lord. She’d forgotten how deep and sexy his voice was and how when he said her name, it vibrated all the way through her.
Even after all these years, he still had the ability to turn her inside out.
As he picked up the driftwood on which she’d painted a scene for Shelley and drew his dark brows together as he studied it, Reese couldn’t resist making a quick visual inspection of her own. The line of his jaw had sharpened over the years, and the peppering of dark whiskers gave him an edgier feel than the suit-and-tie Trent she’d remembered from their life in New York.
Did he still have to be so darn good-looking? So gorgeous that her pulse didn’t have a chance of staying steady when he was this near to her.
