Publisher's Summary

From the balcony of his house, Mike Haines can see the quiet, commonplace beauty of the Holliday farm. But what he remembers is the little sister of his high school girlfriend, Dusty, who grew up there. As a teen Dusty had gone off the rails, but when she was a kid she was sweet, she was funny, and she had a special bond with Mike. But after high school, she took off, and Mike never saw her again. Then tragedy strikes Dusty's family. She comes back into town, and Mike thinks she hasn't changed back to the sweet, funny girl he knew but instead continues to be selfish and thoughtless, leaving her family alone to deal with their mourning. So he seeks her out and confronts her in an effort to understand what went wrong and to force her to sort herself out. He finds out quickly he's wrong about Dusty Holliday. Very wrong. And right after Mike discovers that, the bond they had years before snaps back into place in ways he would never suspect. But Mike Haines had a bad marriage, then he played games of the heart for a good woman. And lost. In order to protect himself and his kids, he's cautious, he's careful to read the signs, and he's not interested in finding a woman he has to fix. Then he learns what happened to Dusty, and he thinks she needs to be fixed. He swings, he misses, and in this new game of hearts, for Dusty, Mike just got strike three.

I was not expecting to have 2 love stories in this book. But wow I can't get enough of Mike/Dusty and Fin/Reese. I was shocked and sadden and happy and joyful this book makes you feel all the feels. Probably my favourite book of this series and that's saying something because I got a soft spot for Joe. Some things I like about this book was No I mean come on best nick name ever! And I got say Fin totally grabbed my heart when you know you know. :) Dusty was the laid back artsy kind but totally down to earth too. Loved how she loved Mike with her whole heart right from the beginning. What to say about Mike.. I am glad he got his in the end. I was really rooting for him in Violets story but I can see how Dusty was more Mike type in the end. On to the last of the series as it stands wish me luck. Enjoy Everyone!

Favorite of the series

This book was my favorite of the series. I loved Mike in book 2 and had been rooting for him to win Violet but it wasn't to be. It turned out for the best. Mike and Dusty were meant to be. Dusty had been in love with Mike since she was 12 and he was 17 or 18 and he saw her as his best friends little sister. In spite of a number of bumps, from annoying to life threatening, this book shows a family of blood and friends come together to form something beautiful. This book is well worth the credit.
