|Summary, etc.:|| "Once upon a time, Rick Sullivan had a promising future. One of Jewell Cove's star athletes and reigning heartthrobs, he joined the Marines and had the world in the palm of his hand, until it all came crashing down. His honorable discharge doesn't make him the hometown hero everyone wants him to be, and there's little reprieve from the demons that haunt him at night. Still, even though it seems that all hope is gone, fate has something else in store. Just hearing Rick's name is enough to give Jess Collins a headache. Years ago, they'd been close. Now she barely knows the man Rick has become since his return from service, then again, Jess isn't that same young, naïve girl anymore either. And while there's a powerful attraction between them--one that yields a greater passion than Jess could have ever imagined--both are wary about opening their hearts to love and loss. But happy endings don't come easily when long-buried secrets insist on rising to the surface. Will their pasts tear them apart--or can love find a way to heal them both?"-- From back cover.

Jess Collins can't stand to see Rick Sullivan, the crush of her youth, return to Jewell Cove as a drunken, unreliable shadow of his former self. She's already lived with one drunk, an out-of-control boyfriend, though only one of her brothers knows how far that abuse went. Rick knows that he is not coping appropriately with the tragedy he saw as a marine or his mother's illness. Then a deathbed promise to his mother forces him to dry out and start facing life. Jess is not ready to give him a chance, but they are drawn by a strong attraction. She is amazed to find that Rick now paints to fight his demons. She and he discover that Jess can trust him with her future when her past returns to confront her. With PTSD and small-town themes similar to those of C. H. Admirand's Apple Grove series, this story has a lot of heart and appeal. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
