I was totally over Joshua Parkerson.
Sure, I had a teenage crush on him way back when—and everyone knew it—but he never saw me as anything but his little brother’s friend, the girl who got tongue-tied any time he walked into a room.
I had long ago accepted the fact that his strong arms would never hold me, his lush lips would never claim mine, and his blue eyes would never see me as anything more than who I used to be.
But now he’s back in Willow Creek Valley, and there’s a brand-new spark between us—even he can’t fight it. Our chemistry is explosive, and every time we’re together, I swear I can feel the earth shake.
It doesn’t mean anything… how could it? I’m over him.
Until I see that little pink plus sign, and the earth stops turning completely.
Now I want it all again, a life with him. But Joshua built walls around his heart for a reason, and his secrets haunt him.
How can I show him that the ghosts of his past don’t have to define our new family’s future?

Not my first read by the author and not my last. Corinne brought the angst in this one. I am always honest with my reviews and so this one just was not for me. Period. I love Corinne’s book, and have ben lucky so far to really land some amazing reads for me, but there can’t be every single book that I will love and we all know how that works. That said, to me I think it was the whole pull/push between them but still sleeping with one another, it’s a mixture of things including the issue I kept having with the hero because it just was kind of mean and leading on the heroine type of feeling and that was not a fun feeling when I was trying to throw romance into it but I still enjoyed the story and it pulled at my heart strings.
Hero and heroine have known each other for a very long time. Heroine has been deeply in love with hero and he is kind of here nor there, leading her on a little but with reason. Once I found out the heartbreak of all that, I understood him more in that sense. These two truly did play around one another, playing with that imaginary line to cross and then go back and forth. Very emotional, just when you think it’s all butterflies and rainbows Corinne likes to throw a curve ball as always, it’s one of the things I admire about the author. Beautiful story!
