Graciella Snow has no idea what she wants to do with her life. She’s never known. Since her mom left when she was a kid she’s wondered what the point was to pretty much anything. Now that she’s done with college and expected to join the “real world” she knows she’d better figure it out. But first she has to deal with the house she inherited from her late mother. Going to Maine for the summer was the last thing she’d planned on, but after she meets Alexander Cole she begins to question everything she ever thought she knew.
Known in town as something of a recluse Alexander Cole has gotten used to his solitude. He’s poured himself into his work and it’s better this way, even if these small town gossips don’t understand. But when Grace shows up to take care of her mom’s run down beach house he can’t seem to keep his normal distance. She’d be better off if he did, but after all this time, he’s not so sure he can keep up the fight. How can he keep her from finding out who he really is? Can she ever trust a man with a past she might never know?

My Thoughts:
This was a fast and intriguing read for me. I spent the whole book wondering what Alex's secret was, and right when we get to the good stuff, the book ends. Womp womp. However. the sequel does come out in December.  Grace inherits her mother's house in Maine and while she's staying there she hires an architect to restore the house. That's where she meets Alex. There is something very mysterious and edgy about Alex that Grace just can't figure out. Thing's keep happening that makes her wonder what Alex is hiding. Basically, this was a good book and I can't wait to get my hands on the sequel. Go read this book and thank me later.
