Prepare to be swept away by a talented debut author with a passionate, powerful story to tell.
They meet on a beach. . . . Abby Davis isn’t wearing a skimpy bikini or sipping umbrella drinks, not when she’s busy chasing around four little ones. And Matt McKinney isn’t looking for fun—he’s a Navy SEAL, a grown man with a long list of missions . . . and fallen brothers.
They only have a week. . . . Abby has brought her children to this beach to start over, to give them the enjoyable memories they deserve. Matt’s been sidelined by a combat injury, and haunted by the best friend he lost and the promise he made: to remain a SEAL—focused and dedicated. This leaves no time for what he’s always wanted: a family.
But a week is all it takes. . . . Matt opens her heart while Abby soothes his soul. And though they plan to say good-bye when the week is over, something magical happens on that beach, something neither can forget. Something utterly, completely worth falling for.

|review||This book blew me away. One of the most beautiful, honest, believable romances I’ve ever come across. Matt and Abby are amazing characters. Both of them are intelligent, independent, and loving but also flawed and confused. Abby is everything a heroine should be. She’s been through hard times and a rough childhood, but she is strong and loves her children fiercely. Pregnant and now alone, she’s determined to get through on her own and, after years of being hurt by the people who should have protected her, she simply doesn’t know how to let someone into to her life.
Matt is a Navy Seal. Loyal to a fault, independent and focused on duty, he’s never had the time or the need for a relationship. But something about Abby and her children draws him in and has him seeking out ways to spend time with them before their week at the beach ends and they go their separate ways for good.
This story is beautiful and believable. Matt is sexy as hell but I’m not sure what I loved more, his relationship with Abby or watching him fall for her children. Often I find children in romance books annoying clichés and plot devices. Not these kids, I loved them all and they added so much to this story.
READ THIS BOOK. I would have given it 6 stars if I could. This is the book I recommend to everyone and I have had NO complaints. Book 2 is out now (also a wonderful book) and book 3 is on the way.
