Madison’s heart closed the day her twin brother died.
losing her twin, Michael, in a drowning incident, Madison has rejected
the faith he lived by. Instead, she’s devoted her life to fulfilling
Michael’s dream—winning the River Sail Regatta in their small Indiana
town, Chapel Springs.
As she trains for the regatta, Beckett
O’Reilly is teaching Madison to swim. But he’s keeping a painful secret
from her—and as they grow closer, that secret threatens to upend their
lives . . . and the lives of both their families.
Hunter has a special gift for making a setting and characters come
alive and burrow into your heart. I've been a bug fan of hers for a
while, but this has got to be one of her very best.
one of my favorite heroes ever. He's strong, handsome, and flawed enough
to make sure we see him as human and not a superhero. I think one of
the greatest ways to show love is through our time. He spent a lot of it
patiently teaching Madison to not be afraid of the water and how to
sail. From his point of view, none of that could benefit him. His
chances with her were non-existent. She was competition in a race that
he needed the winnings from. He did it because he wanted the best for
her. What better example of love is there?
Madison is overwhelmed
with guilt. It is blinding her to the truth about her brother, her
needs and who Beckett is. She has nightmares and thinks the "fix" for
her sleep problems and guilt is to fulfill the dream of her brother.
characters grow over the course of the book and have a very real
relationship and romance. I find myself still wishing them the best as
if they were people I knew. I bet they'll stay with you as well.
I got this book from the publisher in exchange for sharing my honest opinion.
