I love Laramie’s writing and not making you wade through chapters of unnecessary drama and angst. I enjoyed Slater and Malone learning to forgive each other after 10 years spent apart and then forging a new, stronger friendship. I liked that they didn’t jump right into a new relationship even though they’ve missed each other and still feel immense chemistry when together. There was still some feelings drama that they each had to learn and grow from as this new relationship took off and that ending had my heart in my throat. I’m rooting for a quick resolution in book 2.

There, on a hot summer night, next to a lazy flowing creek, in northern Georgia, we're cleansed of all the hurt we caused each other.
He's got a fucking doctorate in going downtown. It feels like he has two mouths as he flicks his tongue against my clit and lightly pushes his finger into me.
"Perfect and easy aren't love. Love is being with someone when they're at their weakest. It's helping them up when they're down, being their strength when they have none."
From The Publisher
A second-chance romance as scorching hot as a baseball diamond in August.
Slater "Savage" Harlow
Winning the MVP award for the Birmingham Bandits last year was the highlight of my baseball career. It was the culmination of childhood dreams, calculated adult decisions, sacrifice, and a hell of a lot of focus. Tearing my ACL in spring training? Not what I expected at all.
Now I'm home, in small town Georgia, rehabbing in the comfort of my own home, with people I know. I'm connecting with friends I haven't had time to talk to in years, spending days at home with my parents, and getting to watch my little brother play minor league baseball.
What I don't expect is to see Malone Fulcher walking into Del's Diner one morning while having my coffee and egg whites.
She's the old flame, the one who got away, and the woman I compare all others to.
Spending the summer in my hometown wasn't what I had planned, but it's what I need. Recovering from a hard year, both personally and professionally, I need to reconnect with who I am. When my mom encouraged me to come home and do some soul searching, I can't say no.
Memories are all over this small town, from the Baptist Church to the east field on my parents farm, to the diner. On my second day in town, I decide to go in, memories be damned.
I lost my breath as soon as I saw "Savage" Harlow sitting alone at a booth. Our eyes lock, my heart flutters, and my hands shake - all the same way they did back in high school. But back then we couldn't make it work. Going our separate ways to differing colleges, we decided we weren't meant to be.
A decade later, as soon as our eyes meet, I'm wondering if we were right, because those green eyes of his do nothing but take me to a past that I can see being my future.
Author's Note: This does end in somewhat of a cliffhanger!
