NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Prepare to be swept away by a talented debut author with a passionate, powerful story to tell.
They meet on a beach. . . . Abby Davis isn’t wearing a skimpy bikini or sipping umbrella drinks, not when she’s busy chasing around four little ones. And Matt McKinney isn’t looking for fun—he’s a Navy SEAL, a grown man with a long list of missions . . . and fallen brothers.
They only have a week. . . . Abby has brought her children to this beach to start over, to give them the enjoyable memories they deserve. Matt’s been sidelined by a combat injury, and haunted by the best friend he lost and the promise he made: to remain a SEAL—focused and dedicated. This leaves no time for what he’s always wanted: a family.
But a week is all it takes. . . . Matt opens her heart while Abby soothes his soul. And though they plan to say good-bye when the week is over, something magical happens on that beach, something neither can forget. Something utterly, completely worth falling for.

  • Not your typical romance

    By baseballgirl123
    Yes there was love at first sight, and a "meet cute" but they were atypical. Not often our hero is willing to jump into fatherhood. I really enjoyed this book. Read it in a day. The author has a nice way with making conversations seem real. Often the verbal exchanges seem stilted. I could hear Matt, Abby and the kids talking. And Angie was a hoot.
  • Wonderful read!

    By SuSu-Asheville
    What a wonderful romance. I cried many times which is highly unusual for me. One of the best contemporary love stories I have had the opportunity to read this year. New author to me. Look forward to reading more of her works. 😊
  • This may be my favorite book ever!

    I've read this book three times! It's such a touching story, the kids are fun, you can feel the love between the characters. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the romance genre.

    Two of the best emotions are to laugh and cry. Well this book will have you doing both. I couldn't put it down, and now I'm sad it's over.
  • WOW

  • Sweet, but a little boring

    By yesthattoo
    Well written and a sweet story, but not a page turner. Just kind of anticlimactic.
  • Love to fall
