It was his only chance to make something of himself but one stupid mistake gets him blackballed from all the restaurants.

Seeing her now though it is becoming clear that Jill is his biggest dream of all. He knows he has to work for her heart again but can he really be the man she needs. Can he be the man that she is proud to have? Does love really exist or is this all a dream that will go up in smoke?
Book 2 in the Dare Valley series is going really great. I fell in love with Ava Miles and her Nora Roberts Land and coming back to Dare Valley seemed like coming home. Jill Hale is a local town girl never really dreaming of big lights or something more. Dare Valley is her home but seeing Brian again is making her see what has been missing lately. I loved that even though they have been apart the love is easily there yet stronger than ever. Brian has a lot of issues to work with yet having Jill by his side makes all of them seem so little. Ava Miles did such a great job in easily bringing us back to his this beautiful town and all its memorable charcters especially the new rich billionaired Mac Maven and Peggy definitley can`t wait for their story. Loved it.
