Ten years ago, I left Hawk Valley.
I never planned to return. Not to the regrets. The bitter memories. The guilt.
My baseball career gave me both the excuse and the money I needed to start over. Then my mom called, and I found myself headed back to the one place I swore I wouldn’t step foot again.
Meeting Delilah wasn’t part of the plan. Falling in love with her adorable son was even less so. And yet, what’s brewing between us is too intense to be denied. The unexpected passion is almost enough to distract us from the crumbling of both our worlds.
But even as the sparks fly, someone is waiting in the shadows to burn it all down
3.5 Heart Review by Ashley
Ember was my first book by Emma Renshaw and it sucked me right in. The opening was absolutely heart wrenching and I just had to know how things would pan out after the fact...
Delilah was ahhhhmazing! I adored her and her darling son, Tuck. It was impossible not to. Just ask Gunner. That poor broody guy. He had suffered and lost so much. But he took is pain and funneled it into his passion, baseball. He was successful. The best at what he did. Life was good...until he got the call that changed everything....
Forced back to his hometown for the first time since he left, Gunner is slammed with emotions. Regret. Guilt. Fear. And desire for Delilah. I loved how even with everything that was happening in her life, she brought a lightness to him. Grounded him. Helped him focus on what mattered most.
And right in the middle of their budding romance, someone was lurking in the shadows. That little bit of mystery and danger kept me on edge waiting for the bottom to fall out of all they had built. Holy unexpected twist! Emma Renshaw had my heart was racing and I was holding my breath during those tense moments when everything hung in the balance. And while I would've liked a little bit more danger sprinkled in throughout to tie it all together (what can I say I'm a suspense fan), the ending left me with a satisfied smile.
