Carmen Frost hates honey. And bees. And in her hometown of Charmed, Texas, which practically invented the stuff, that’s a problem. The good news is that the summer Honey Festival is finally over. Even better, so is the annual Lucky Hart carnival, a road show that made off with her dreams years ago—including the boy she loved. Now she’s got a divorce behind her, and a successful law career in front of her, but in a tiny town, big memories die hard. Or they don’t die at all—as Carmen discovers when she runs into an all too familiar pair of eyes—older, wiser, and just as heart-melting as ever . . .

Not even sure if that was even a good description of the book but I'll just stick to it. It was hard to write without spoiling the book. If your looking for a sweet contemporary with loads (and I mean loads) of drama then I suggest you pick this book up. I loved reading about the tension between the two and seeing everything play out I really couldn't help but root for the two main characters wondering when they would finaly stick together. I loved getting to know thier history and the reason behind their split. Overall this was a pretty great book and I really enjoyed it.
Apparently this was the second book to a series, didn't realize till after I was writing this review and I have to say that I'm really interested in reading the first book and see what went on before this book started.
We both stopped, and my insides went fifteen degrees warmer. A gray and navy pullover shirt clung to him like paint, over worn soft-looking jeans and his leather work boots. His hair—that’s where my jaw dropped. Dear God, he’d cut his hair. He’d never cut his hair. I mean, he wasn’t Samson, but he loved it long. But there it was—not short short, it still swung a little in the front, but it was definitely above the collar respectable and sweet Jesus it was even sexier than before.
No, it wasn’t about sharing him. That was abundantly clear by the vise that gripped my chest as his gaze soaked me in. It was about sharing air with him. With the only man that ever broke me.
