The guy she wants…
Growing up on the coast of Maine with a revolving door of foster siblings, Caitlyn Michaud spent one intense and passionate year falling in love with her foster brother, Heath. Then he left without a word. The betrayal devastated Caitlyn and made her vow to forget the compelling bad boy. But forgetting his sensual touch and their deep all-consuming friendship is easier said than done.
Isn’t the guy she needs…
Determined to move on, in college Caitlyn has risen above her small town impoverished roots and has joined a sorority, reinvented her appearance, and landed the right boyfriend. Pre-law major and frat president, Ethan, is thoughtful and always laughing, and he makes her feel happy, calm. He also gives her the social acceptance she craves.
But the perfect world she tried so hard to attain is ripped apart when Heath appears one night out of nowhere. Caitlyn remembers all the reasons why she loves him, even if they don’t make sense to anyone but her. Out of the military, Heath is as brooding and intense as ever, and he is determined not only to win her back, but to exact revenge on everyone who kept him from her…
And when one love allows her to breathe, but the other feels as essential to her life as air, how does she choose between them?
What a great amazing start to a new series! It immediately made me love the story! This is my first Erin McCarthy book and it isn't my last since I only heard great things about her books. It is full of heartbreak, first love, misunderstandings and the plot pulls you in. McCarthy sets everything up with a tone of love and innocence.
Cat is our main character who fell in love at a young age, she meets Heath at chance and they fall in love. While their love was deep that it took years apart and even when she moves on it has never left the strong emotions of when Heath left four years ago. She never understood by he left without and explanation. Now she is in college (junior year) made new friends and is in a relationship with Ethan. Not until Heath reappears and her life begins to unravel, and question everything since Heath left. Heath is not a character to like right away but you can like him after a while. The truths are revealed earlier and McCarthy gives you glimpses of their life before. Hard not to root for Heath and Cat to be together. There is definitely a love triangle and Ethan is not a bad guy, he only fell for Cat's image that she put on.
The plot was here and there and you can see which one she is going to choose. It did end rather quickly, and it left you wondering what is going to happen. Overall, it was a good story, quick to read and it is a good beach read!
