Madison’s heart has been closed for years. But one summer can change everything.

In the years since her twin brother’s drowning, Madison McKinley has struggled to put it behind her. Despite the support of her close-knit family and her gratifying job as a veterinarian in their riverside town, the loss still haunts her.

To find closure, Madison sets out to fulfill her brother’s dream of winning the town’s annual regatta. But first she has to learn to sail, and fast.

Beckett O’Reilly knows Madison is out of his league, but someone neglected to tell his heart. Now she needs his help—and he’ll give it, because he owes her far more than she’ll ever know.

Madison will do anything—even work with the infamous Beckett O’Reilly—to reach her goal. And as much as she’d like to deny it, the chemistry between them is electrifying. As summer wanes, her feelings for him grow and a fledgling faith takes root in her heart.

But Beckett harbors a secret that will test the limits of their new love. Can their romance survive summer’s challenges? And will achieving her brother’s dream give Madison the peace she desperately seeks?
I really try hard not to accept books for review that I don't think I will like. Even when I do accept them, I try hard to give them a fair chance a read a large chunk of the beginning. However, this book didn't cut it for me and is unfortunately a DNF.

I'm not sure what kept me from enjoying this book, to be honest. I feel like it was because of how slowly the beginning was, and how confusing the big secret regarding her sister Jade was. I just could not get into the book and even enjoy the tense romance scenes. I'm not saying this book is horrible; I'm sure many romance lovers would enjoy this! It just wasn't for me.

I received this book free for review for a LitFuse Blog Tour. I was not required to post a positive review, simply an honest one.
