Publisher's Summary

Love, truth, and pain lie buried beneath the Sunset at Lake Crane….
Faced with a blackmailer's ultimatum, 19-year-old Erynn O'Neal protects her lover by disappearing from his life. Brokenhearted, she vanishes - and takes a life-altering secret with her.
Grant Alexander crossed the line when he took former student Erynn O'Neal as his own a mere two months after her high school graduation. Knowing the truth revealed would shred his career and reputation, he accepted the risks in exchange for the promise of a lifelong love. A heartbeat later, Erynn abandoned him without a word.
Years pass as Grant and Erynn lead separate lives - he as a reclusive author, she as an ambitious reporter. Yet, despite scarred hearts, true love lost is never forgotten, and Grant devises a way to draw Erynn back into his sphere of passion. Their aching hearts begin a tentative detente, but old jealousies flare, devastating truths come to light, and Grant and Erynn must resurrect and overcome the painful secrets of the past if they're ever to love again.

Emotional ride with a HEA....but

Any additional comments?

Really enjoyed this story.

It's an emotional roller-coaster but worth the ride. When an author can pull you in and make you feel so much for the characters it's always an entertaining and enjoyable story.

Romance, mystery, lost love, hope, heartbreak, deceit, forgiveness and betrayal woven into a steamy second chance at love story.

Both Grant and Erynn are great characters. Each is struggling with the inner turmoil that has been with them since Erynn disappeared 8 years ago. The chemistry between them was perfect. Even though they have led separate lives, grown and matured with time, the one thing that has never changed is the love they share .

The story is told in the POV of both Grant and Erynn which I really liked, you were able to see what each of them were thinking as the story progressed.

The But....There are several repeated lines throughout the book, the ones I was able to jot down at the time are Chapter 15 about 5 min in ,Chapter 31 about 8 1/2 min in, Chapter 32 about 8 min in ,Chapter 34 about 3 min left in chapter. If I had purchased the book I would have returned it based on this.

This is the second book I have listened to that was narrated by Russell Lord. I have gotten used to his voice more and while I like his character voices the narrative parts of the story are still a bit flat with an odd inflection occasionally. Almost as if he's bored at times. He has a very deep voice that of coarse is great for the male characters, for me just not the right voice for sex scenes. I think his voice is better situated for Sci-Fi military or Western stories.
