In this heartwarming second-chance romance, a woman returns home and discovers that, when it comes to finding love, there's no place like home.

Rising-star reporter Dakota Jones is usually the one breaking the news---until an inadvertent scandal wrecks her career. The only place she can go to regroup is Holly Grove Island. But her small South Carolina hometown comes with a major catch: Dexter Roberts, the first man to break Dakota's heart, is her new boss. Working alongside Dexter, who is more attractive than he has a right to be, shows Dakota what might have been . . . but she isn't giving him another chance to break her heart.

Dexter has always regretted the way things ended between him and Dakota. Her return could be his opportunity to finally make amends. But the more time he spends with Dakota, the more he realizes his feelings for her never went away. Now he has just a few months to convince her to give their love a second chance. But for Dakota to agree to stay, Dexter will have to reveal the devastating truth about why he let Dakota go all those years ago.

Includes the bonus novella Kiss Me at Sweetwater Springs by Annie Rains!


Sweet, sultry and oh so satisfying! With the first book in her new Holly Grove Island series, Reese Ryan brings a small town to life with a slow-burn reunion of first loves! The characters are richly developed, the setting is comforting and the plot held my attention throughout. I’m looking forward to a return trip!

Dakota is attention grabbing from the start. She never thought she’d be returning to her small hometown after setting out to set the world on fire in the New York broadcasting scene, but an unexpected scandal has rocked her entire foundation.

Dexter is a sweetheart. He can’t believe the woman he’s never gotten over is back in town, but those old feelings don’t take long to overflow once again.

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a small town setting with a lot of heart.
