Can a man who resents the hand he’s been dealt and a woman who spends her days grateful for every little thing find true love in each other’s arms—or are their differences stronger than both of them? Find out in this funny, sexy, heartfelt romance, and fall in love with Grant and Jules on the sandy shores of Silver Island, home to coffee shops, boat races, and midnight rendezvous.
Even war heroes need a little help sometimes...After spending years fighting for his country and too damn long learning to navigate life with a prosthetic leg, Grant Silver returns to Silver Island to figure out a future he couldn’t fathom without fatigues and a gun in his hand. He’d almost forgotten how a man could suffocate from the warmth and caring community in which he’d grown up, and if that weren’t bad enough, his buddies’ beautiful and far-too-chipper younger sister won’t stop flitting into his life, trying to sprinkle happy dust everywhere she goes.
As a cancer survivor, Jules Steele knows better than to count on seeing tomorrow. She doesn't take a single moment for granted, and she isn’t about to let a man who used to be charming and full of life waste the future he’s been blessed with. She's determined to get through to him, even if it takes a few steamy kisses...
Wow oh wow. I usually get emotional when I read Melissa’s books but this one was something else. I shed so many tears while reading this book. Both happy and sad ones. Something about this one really got me.
Grant and Jules really captured my heart. From the beginning of the book I was rooting for Jules to help Grant shift his grumpiness. Jules’ happiness is infectious. She makes you want to sing from the rooftops. Grant has been through hell both on and off the battlefield and I just wanted to wrap my arms around him and give him the biggest hug!
Melissa draws you into these big families and makes you feel like a part of them. I love all the teasing and good-natured ribbing the families give each other. It reminds me of all the good times with my own family.
This is the second book in this series but I cannot wait to read so many more books set on Silver Island. It’s one of those places that I would absolutely love to visit (if it was real). I can’t wait to see all of Jules and Grant’s friends fall in love and find their HEA!
