When an opportunity brings an unexpected meeting this will lead to something new…
The move to Barefoot Bay is supposed to be the start Brianna Johnson desperately needs. The nightmares that still plague her she will have to handle and hope they will go away with time. Settling into her new life isn't as easy as she thought it would be especially with the distraction of a man who she had to stay away from. He was dangerous to her hard won sense of normalcy. Yet Monroe was determined, and she didn't know what to do about that—run or stand and claim him.
Monroe Rainey is focused on making his new business in Barefoot Bay a success. The community was welcoming and just what he, his dad and his brothers need to rebuild after a devastating loss. He'd vowed not to take life for granted and when he meets the woman who sparks his interest he wasn't about to let an opportunity pass. Brianna was afraid to open up, but he was the right person to convince her that sometimes you needed to let go your control in order to get anything worth having.
Two fractured people find each other and they find that together they can make something new.

Being shell-shocked due to a disastrous first romantic experience Brianna Johnson from which she's stilling having horrific dreams about, decided to move to Barefoot Bay with the hopes of removing them from her mind. But just as the old proverb "If wishes were horses, beggars would ride" goes, just having her hoping for it to come is not sufficient to make it happen; she needs to take some as well.
Brianna's plans go awry when she turns into Monroe Rainey who turns out to be a interruption for having it happen, destroying her desire to have her life returning to what it had been like before her finding love the first time. This is easier said than done, because she doesn't know how to deal with his overpowering presence; does she take off like a scared rabbit and try to disappear, or does she stay for an opportunity not to let a possible HEA get away.
Monroe, like Brianna, has his own baggage from a failed relationship; and with his new business occupying his mind, he can't afford to allow a new relationship cloud his mind. However, fate steps in, causing a spark to rekindle his suppressed desire to have a HEA, a desire for which he wasn't about to lose a chance to obtain.
When these two realized the possibilities of what might happen if come together as one, I could help hearing the song "This Can Be the Start of Something Big" in my mind, because this is what precisely what their budding relationship can become. [Play this song from YouTube to get the sense of what I got reading this book.]
For having given her readers a rather endearing story of two individuals finding a second chance at romance, I've given the author. Taige Crenshaw, 5 STARS for this book.
