Sarina Bowen has a gift which is writing about people... She can create characters that are so human, so relatable, even if they live in the snow of Vermont and get into a lot of trouble. Skye is a wonderful character, she has face it all and has bounced back each time. Benito has suffered his share of sorrows but his love for Skye is undeniable even if it has passed 12 years and so much pain for both of them. I understood his sister Zara and what she has done to them, even though it is tough to accept and forgive. I think that is why Sarina Bowen is such a wonderful author she does not fear writing a character for who he/she is. We make mistakes, we are humans after all.
Skye and Benito's love story is a wonderful second chance and it is so worth reading it.
About the book:
Skye Copeland is on paid leave from her broadcasting job after accidentally drawing a wiener on the traffic map. As if it’s her fault the traffic pattern created a perfect schlong?
Skye isn’t laughing. She needs this job. And that’s the only reason she’s willing to chase down a story in her least favorite place—that hell on earth known as Vermont.
A quick trip. In and out. Much like - never mind. She can sneak into the town that once tried to break her, get the story and slide back into the good graces of her producer. Easy peasy.
But things go sideways the moment she steps over the county line. Her stepsister is running from a violent drug dealer. And the cop on the case is none other than Benito Rossi, the man who broke Skye’s teenage heart.
His dark brown eyes still tear her apart. And even as she steels herself to finally tell him off after twelve years, the old fireworks are still there.
Things are about to go boom
