Our Rating : 4.5 Stars
Leaving New York City and returning to her hometown to teach a screenplay writing class seems like just the break Grace Montgomery needs. Until her sisters wake her at four thirty in the morning to watch the hottest guys in town train wild horses and she realizes that escaping her sisters’ drama-filled lives was a lot easier from hundreds of miles away. To make matters worse, she spots the one man she never wanted to see again—ruggedly handsome Reed Cross.
Reed was one of Michigan’s leading historical preservation experts, but on the heels of catching his girlfriend in bed with his business partner, his uncle suffers a heart attack. Reed cuts all ties and returns home to Oak Falls to run his uncle’s business. A chance encounter with Grace, his first love, brings back memories he’s spent years trying to escape.
Grace is bound and determined not to fall under Reed’s spell again—and Reed wants more than another taste of the woman he’s never forgotten. When a midnight party brings them together, passion ignites and old wounds are opened.  Grace sets down the ground rules for the next three weeks. No touching, no kissing, and if she has it her way, no breathing, because every breath he takes steals her ability to think. But Reed has other ideas…

Our Thoughts
I love a good second chance at love; Reed and Grace were high school sweethearts – in secret due to their school rivalry – who parted ways once they graduated; Grace moved to New York City and Reed ran off to Michigan to get away from the memories he and Grace had created.  Fast forward a few years later and Grace agrees to come back to Oak Falls for 3 weeks to teach a class at her sister’s bookstore; the last person she expected to see was Reed Cross!  They set some ground rules for how they will handle interactions, but those quickly get tossed to the side once they get their hands on each other again.
These two have all the qualities of a great love story.  I have such a soft spot for second chance romances. When these two run into each other again it’s like no time has passed, even though they’ve been apart for years.  Their chemistry is still strong, their feelings are still very much present, and they just can’t stay away from each other.  The lengths that these two go to in order to make up for the time and experiences they’ve missed let’s you know that they’re going to be okay.  The way the author captures the strength of their love for each other was just perfect.
I thoroughly enjoyed meeting all the Montgomerys; I don’t have any sisters so I can’t possibly imagine having that much estrogen in one house!  But the fact that they’re all so different and they care so much for each other makes their connection so strong.  One of the things I enjoy about Melissa Foster books is that they will follow a family so I know we will see more of the Montgomerys and I CAN NOT wait!
