It’s a steamy reunion between a single mum and the billionaire who got away!
Former ski champion Conor Kavanagh enjoys a challenge. And he’s encountered no challenge more arousing than Ellie Porter. Once, she broke his heart. Now that she’s back in town? He can’t seem to stay away…
But Ellie has changed. Widowed, with a baby, she has responsibilities — and secrets — weighing her down. Still, his desire for her is undeniable. Surely, he can have her without giving up his heart — or his daredevil ways? He’s willing to risk it all to find out…
This second chance story took me by surprise. There's more to it, than than I expected.
Connor is enthralled with the idea of his childhood friends being back in town, even though Ellie once broke his heart. But things are not as expected. Life has been rough for the twins, Ellie had lost her husband, is a single mother, and nearly lost her twin Kirby, as well. Kirby's left leg is partly amputated, and now their grandfather has fallen ill, needing help.
So much agony, sorrow, and pain in the twins' life for the past 18 months. Connor is doing what he can to help, and as it seems to help Kirby, to be around Connor again, Ellie seems to be falling in pieces.
Connor is an honorable, gentle, loving man. His own disappointments in life have guided to be in the place in life where he is, in a solid place, where he is content.
Ellie understandably has it tough, so much drama in her life in the past couple years. She goes boldly after what she wants, and that is intimacy with Connor, and help with her brother. I wasn't sure if I should have rooted for her resolute to go after Conner, again and again. At times her behavior seemed audacious, but maybe it was just a misplaced call for help. She also reacts rather strongly with things happening, she seems to be a bit of a drama queen. But there is a reason for her emotional behavior, if she could only open up about it, and share her pain.
Like said, there's much more to the story than I expected. I enjoyed it, it had some original twists in the story. It also had lots of angst and pain, bereavement and sorrow. All the dark emotions nearly over powered the joy of the baby, the treasure of reunited childhood friends, and the passion, wonder and glee of the new relationship between Connor and Ellie
