Synopsis: As teenagers, Lindsay and Grady found a love together that few people are lucky enough to ever experience.
When Lindsay Ross decided to visit her aunt for the summer in a small lake town in New York, she didn’t expect anything other than an escape from her demanding parents. She certainly didn’t expect Grady Hawke. At the end of the summer, Lindsay and Grady made plans for their future and vowed to be together forever. Back in New York City, events beyond her control forced Lindsay to turn her back on Grady and their love.
Grady has spent the last five years trying to forget the one girl who broke his heart. But when Lindsay arrives back in town unannounced, will Grady get to know the woman she has become and find out the real reason she left him all those years ago? Or will he push her away for good?

My Review: I have not yet read the first book in this series, but I am definitely very motivated to read it now. I absolutely adored this story. One of the things I loved the most was how pissed Grady was at Lindsay! Yes, I just loved how he just assumed that Lindsay didn't love him back when it all happened and he was just pissed and determined to make her feel unwelcome in his town. It was a very real reaction because he was hurt and confused. Many books would have the lead character be all forgiving and willing to listen quickly and whatnot and while it makes the male lead seem all swoony and perfect I loved that Grady was so not. He was real and a total man. He acted like a heartbroken man would and I loved the very real emotions I saw in them both. Lindsay was a very strong character and I loved her. She was determined and even though she made serious mistakes in her past, she tries very hard to turn her life into the direction she truly wants it to go. Lindsay and Grady together were just... explosive. They had so much chemistry and they would just argue and agh I love them. Let's talk a little bit about the secret. It is a secret. This means it wasn't this huge deal about some secret and then it turns out to be some stupid secret and you're left thinking, "This was it?" NO. It was the type of secret that leaves your mouth agape and you give this loud gasp and you're like, "OH MY GOD THIS IS NOT HAPPENING I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS HAPPENED." That type of secret.
