Hot, steamy second chance romance w a dose of melancholy…
An expansion of Melanie’s short story The Summer of Us for the One Hot Summer anthology last year.
My original review was five stars all the way for this story and I still feel that way for the expansion of Linc and Sunny’s second chance love story.
It could have been merely a sweet hot second chance romance. Lincoln and Sunny are childhood friends who became each other’s first love, only to have life get in their way.
But the addition of part two to this story added even more of that magic Melanie sprinkles on her stories.
Lincoln Webber as he calls himself now since he changed his last name to his late mother’s maiden name. He hated his father. He has come back to Mission Cove to wipe out to final remaining piece of his father’s legacy.
Little did he expect to find the one thing his father tried to ensure he never found again…Sunny. She now runs a bakery in town and is the last person Linc expects to see but he is thrilled to see her again after all these years.
Sunny doesn’t want him to destroy himself with his hate for his father.
Linc finds himself wanting to stay close to Sunny rather than going back to the city all the time. Even if that means coming back to Mission Cove. He learns a lot about himself, his late parents, Sunny, and the town of Mission Cove.
I received a review copy. I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.
