No one can write a love scene like Sarah Alderson!!! That said, there is so much more in this book than romance scenes. But boy, are the windows steamy!

I will read anything Sarah Alderson put out, so I did not read the summary of this book and therefore had no idea what to expect. It opens with a home filled with anguish and tension, fear so thick it could be cut with a knife. Jessa lives with this everyday. Her mother walks through life in a stupor, drug-induced haze. All of this caused by her father, a Marine who has had a bad turn of events during his last service. He has PTSD so badly he cannot contain his emotions.

Then Jessa runs in to Kit again. The boy she had a crush on as she was growing up as he was always around being her older brother's best friend. A historical playboy, girl player he does not have the best reputation, but when he starts to date Jessa things may change.

This was such a romantic book that I wanted to cry in so many places. The way Jessa and Kit met and their relationship grew was beautiful. I really can't say more because I refuse to give away the plot, but I will say that their time is numbered as Kit is scheduled to deploy very soon. What will become of their relationship? How it will continue even though her older brother may have words about the relationship? And will it survive when Jessa's own father has had a problem with Kit since he was a child?

This is a future movie, if you ask me!

Summary - Home on leave in sunny California, Marine and local lothario Kit Ryan finds himself dangerously drawn to his best friend's sister, Jessa - the one girl he can't have.

But Kit's not about to let a few obstacles stand in his way and soon Jessa's falling for his irresistible charms.

What starts out as a summer romance of secret hook-ups and magical first times quickly develops into a passionate love affair that turns both their worlds upside down.

When summer's over and it's time for Kit to redeploy, neither Kit nor Jessa are ready to say goodbye. Jessa's finally following her dreams and Kit's discovered there's someone he'd sacrifice everything for.

Jessa's prepared to wait for Kit no matter what. But when something more than distance and time rips them apart they're forced to decide whether what they have is really worth fighting for.

A breathtaking, scorchingly hot story about love, friendship, family and finding your way back from the edge of heartbreak.
