Synopsis:

When magazine writer Kate Donovan is assigned to profile the building and architectural firm of her first and only love, she heads back to the South Carolina Low Country to face the demons she left behind. Nothing about Danny Flannery's life is what Kate thought it would be, and as the truth is revealed she longs for a big fat do-over.

Danny's made a success of his building firm but is hesitant to participate in a flashy magazine spread. He's dead-set against it when he realizes the journalist sent to interview him is the only woman he's ever loved and lost. Under pressure from his business partner, Danny agrees to sit down for an interview with the girl he once knew as Kat Fordham and realizes her name isn't the only thing that's changed. Everything he thought was true about the past is a lie.

When Danny discovers Kate still wears the heart shaped sea glass necklace he made for her years ago, they clear the air and their passion reignites. But Kate's still keeping secrets to protect their fragile new relationship. With her family estranged and her career on the line, will she come clean before Danny finds out the truth, and can Danny risk his heart again for the only woman he's ever loved?
Kat and Danny met while Kat worked a part time job during her summer living with her sister.  These two fell fast and hard - and parted on very bad terms.  Both are broken hearted and have never really moved on in their love lives.

With a new name - Kate Donovan returns to that very place she met Danny all those years ago.  Little does Danny know - she is the writer who will be interviewing him and his business partner.  They clash and all those feeling are dredged back to the surface.   Does she still love him?  Can they make it work this time?

These two characters have such amazing chemistry!  They have to overcome some pretty big obstacles and re-learn about one another.  Kate has her own family issues to work through and Danny - well he has some problems of his own.  Will they be able to get over those problems and fall in love again?

Anyone who loves contemporary romance, stories of lovers separated and brought back together will love this story.  I wish I hadn't waited so long to read this - it was a fantastic read.  Christy Hayes has written an amazing story and she has definitely earned a spot on my authors to watch for list.
