I haven’t felt like myself in a long time.
I used to be happy. I used to love life. I used to consider myself an artist. But these days, all I do is get through the day, and I haven’t touched a paintbrush in seven years.
I need something new.
Up and moving to a small coastal town in Maine is the last thing anyone expected of me, but the moment I set foot there, I instantly feel at home.
On my first night, I’m startled awake by loud crashing sounds outside, and to my rescue comes a man that, with one look, I know will be the reason I break every rule I have about men.
Jake Taylor is the town’s recluse.
He’s tall, dark, and handsome personified, and would rather spend all of his time in his workshop than around people.
I just so happen to be the exception to that.
With every minute we spend together, I can’t help but fall for the man who brings out everything I thought I lost in myself.
But when his past comes back to town, all the reasons I’ve been avoiding men send the walls around my heart right back up.
I thought I had finally found where I belonged, but now I’m second guessing everything.
