YOU CAN'T STOP A RISING TIDE...
When Lily Doyle spots her high school crush Aiden Flynn on the inbound ferry, she knows trouble is about to dock in Seashell Bay. And not just because he's more handsome than ever. If Aiden's in town, the rumors must be true about his family's plan to sell their coastal land to the highest bidder. But Lily will do whatever it takes to convince the hottest guy on the beach to protect their idyllic island home.
Gorgeous Lily Doyle was the only thing Aiden missed after he escaped from his hometown to play pro baseball. Now all Aiden wants is to wrap up the business deal and get back to his life, not relive a past that still haunts him. But as memories rush in about the night of passion he and Lily shared long ago, everything else washes right out to sea-everything except the desire that still burns between them.
This story was a sweet read. Both Aiden and Lily have grown up since their high school days. Aiden may still be a Jock in ways but he has certainly realized that he needs Lily in his life. Lily is now a woman who stands on her own and thinks for herself. The sparks fly between the two from their first time they set eyes on each other again.
The unique connection between Aiden and Lily touches deep emotions. I love the the fact they did not get in minor fights and break up.They both realized that what they had was special even at a young age. I also like the simple way the story is told as Cassie and her daughter make a new life for themselves. The author clearly understands the human heart as she tells this story of love, hope, and forgiveness. I really enjoyed this story. It's typical Sykes style, with very realistic people, in realistic situations I would want to live in Seashell Bay.
