When Ava Cardona returns home after being away for ten years, she plans to visit with her younger sister then get out of town fast. There are too many painful memories she'd rather not relive. But when a storm hits and she's stranded on the side of the road, she has no choice but to accept help from the man who hurt her the most—Nick Williams.
Nick isn't happy to see Ava either. She had been the love of his life, and she ran away without any explanation. Now he's stuck with her on his family's farm, and old feelings are racing to the surface. While the weather rages outside, the air is just as turbulent inside. But even though they both want to keep as far away from each other as possible, old attractions keep pulling them closer.
As the days pass, their icy dispositions begin to melt, and once they begin talking, they finally start to let go of past hurts. A relationship could even be in their future…or at the very least, a friendship with benefits.
But when Ava learns of a family secret that devastates her, and she discovers that Nick has known about it for years, she does what she does best…runs. Will Nick let Ava run from him again, or will he be strong enough to chase her and fight for her love?

This is the first book that I have read by this author and she is one that I would read again.
After ten years apart the last place Nick expected too see was Ava in his local bar, to be honest for Ava to be in that bar was the last place she wanted to be. Because how Nick and Ava parted was less than friendly.
For me this book had humour and lots off it, especially when Ava's posh Jimmy Choo's got muddy and covered in cow manure, well it was raining and her car was surrounded by cows and she would insist that she wanted to be with her car. To find out what happens you will have to read the book.
Also the book covered a relationship with Ava and her father, which was handled in a sympathetic way and I must admit it did bring a lump to my throat. I also liked the interaction between Ava and her young sister Bella, because its through Bella that Ava is back home, all will become clear when you read the book.
Overall this was a humorous and at times pulls at the heart strings. I give this book 5/5 stars.
The book is avaiable to buy from Amazon UK and all other retailers.
I received this complementary copy in return for a honest review, all thoughts are my own.
