A light summer read about small town living and second chance in love with teenage sweethearts, with lots of details of documentary filming and planning.
Yes, after reading this story, I now know more about the 'making a documentary' and filming process, that I ever thought I wanted to. I liked that the characters have a passion for it, work so well as a team, and want to make the world a better place. But it did get more attention than I expected.
I really enjoyed the previous book in the series, Kiss Me, and it was nice to see now, how much Zane had changed, since he fell in love with Phoebe. In Kiss Me Maya was a force to be reckoned with, fiery and sassy, I kind of missed that in this story.
Del and Maya have the connection from ten years ago, they were engaged to be married, until there was a bad break up. The romance between them is a typical second chance romance with trust issues.
Del's family likes to keep secrets, and one of the subplots is about his mother, Maya's friend, having a breast cancer, and keeping it from her family.
There were lots of drama and issues within the family, and it was mentioned many times that keeping secrets were the family way, that's why I found Del's reaction to Maya's loyalty to keep his mother's secret an over play.
This was an easy read, nice and warmhearted romance story, with the quirks of living in a small town, where everyone knew each other. I missed some of the intensity from the previous book in the series, where there were several dangerous situations, with emotional highs and lows. I think that could have helped the story move forward with a more rapid pace, as well.
