Summary taken from Goodreads:

Interior designer Holly Carrington worked hard for her success. Then tragedy struck, leaving Holly the sole guardian of her infant niece. Now she’s swapped her designer purse for a diaper bag, and is going ahead with plans to renovate—and sell—her childhood home in Red River. But facing her past also means coming face-to-face with Quinn Manning all over again...Quinn was the object of her girlhood crush—and heartbreak— and is more gorgeous than ever. He’s also the only person qualified to oversee the renovation. Now they’re butting heads every step of the way... and their attraction is more electrifying than ever! But once the house is sold, Holly needs to return to her real life. And falling for Quinn all over again is one risk she can’t take...


Review:

Your first love? The boy next door? The one that got away? Who could resist? I am a sucker for a coming-home-romance. And then you throw in a baby and I am a goner. I smiled, I cried a bit (little bit), and I laughed. I enjoyed the overly determined Holly, and the protective Quinn…oh, Quinn. Hannah has had it rough. She’s lost everyone in her life and is going back to the house that reminds her of them the most. And she comes back to find that the man she has always loved is still there and looking better than ever. But what is she going to do? She’s created a life for herself in the city and doesn’t have any plans of staying in the country.
Oh Victoria James…you sure know how to lure a girl in. I fell for Quinn…who wouldn’t? And sometimes, some of things he said made my toes curl.

Good:

Quinn—Hot handy man alert! J I want one.

Bad:

Not too sure if I was feeling Hannah

Sadly, there wasn’t a lot of depth…although their past relationship did make me feel it a little, but I felt like there was something missing to make this romance mind-blowing.

Overall (Writing style, story line, and general):

Overall, it was a very good read. I didn’t have any issues with the writing, other than the plot was missing a little something.

Viewer Type Recommendation:

If you are a lover of a coming-home-romance, like me, or just a lover of girls falling for their teen loves all over again, than this is for you.

A bit about Victoria James:

After Queen's, Victoria earned a degree in Interior Design. After the birth of her first child she began pursuing her life-long passion of writing. Her dream of being a published romance author was realized last February, 2012, when Entangled Publishing bought her manuscript. Victoria is living her dream-staying home with her children and conjuring up happy endings for her characters.

Excerpt!


 “Quinn, there are a few words missing from your sentence.
Like, may I and please.”
He turned so his full attention was on her now, his face a few
inches from hers, close enough that Holly had to tilt her head
back slightly to meet his eyes. She didn’t appreciate that. Nor did
she appreciate just how perfect his face looked, even up close.
“I’m not leaving a woman and a baby in the middle of a storm
in a house with no electricity and nowhere to sleep. I wouldn’t do
it to a stranger, and there’s no way in hell I’m going to do it to you,
of all people. So give me your keys.”
Maybe it was the way you of all people sounded like a soft
caress, or maybe it was just the man himself. Or maybe it was the
fact that Quinn was the only man who’d given a damn about
what happened to her in a long time.
Holly lifted her chin. Whatever it was, she couldn’t get sucked
into this. And she didn’t want to get used to relying on anyone
but herself. “Fine, Quinn. Thank you for your help. I’ll accept your
help. Even though I’m fully capable—”
Quinn grabbed her keys and stalked outside, the screen
door bouncing against the frame as he stepped into the rain, not
stopping to hear the rest of her statement.
Awesome right?
And....
