I am such a sucker for small town romances and this book had me sucked in right from the beginning! It was such an emotional book and both the main characters were absolutely great!
Ellie and Callum have a chance meeting at a bus station in Chicago and both are instantly drawn to each other. Ellie is moving on with her life to a new town and Callum is returning to his home town after visiting his brother. Both part ways not expecting to ever see each other again, but fate has different plans for them.
Ellie ends up relocating to Callum’s hometown where they meet up again. Both are still attracted to each other, but Ellie is holding back because she is running from her past and does not want to get too attached to anyone just in case she needs to jump ship. Ellie’s childhood was very heartbreaking and we understand why she keeps everyone around her at arm’s length. The secondary characters in the book are great and I like that even though the book had loads of emotional angst, the secondary characters lightened up the mood which made the book more enjoyable! From here, we see their relationship bloom but as Ellie’s past make its way to the present, will Ellie and Callum have their HEA?
This was a great story and the all of the characters were likable and I look forward to reading more from this author!
