For as long as he could remember, he wanted her…

Raised by a single mother, Adam Collins resolved to take no chances with a girl’s future—or his own. That’s why, as hard as it was, he resisted everything he felt for Marissa Brooks. Then one night a reckless challenge left a fellow student dead and changed both their lives forever. As penance, Adam took the boy’s place in the Marines, where he could disappear into discipline and duty, and left Marissa behind to struggle with her dreams.

Twelve years later, Adam is back in Walkers Ford to serve as the best man in his friend’s wedding. The years haven’t diminished the electric connection he has with Marissa. But Adam’s mistake continues to haunt him, and Marissa is stumbling under the weight of her family’s legacy. Together they wrestle with demons and dreams, but if there’s any hope for a future together Adam has to not only find a way to forgive himself, but also ask others for forgiveness—especially from the woman whose heart he broke.

Baker & Taylor
If Adam Collins is going to ever reconnect with lost love Marissa Brooks, he's going to have to get over the guilt of causing a peer's death 12 years ago--and the guilt over breaking Marissa's heart to join the Marines in the boy's place. Original.

This is very hot stuff. Of course, a book like this has a fairly formulaic story line, but it actually managed to surprise me on one point, at least. Of course, all the characters are dazzlingly gorgeous and sex partners almost always achieve simultaneous orgasms, but we aren't reading this for verisimilitude. Did I mention, HOT?
