Posey Osterhagen can't complain. She owns a successful architectural salvaging company, she's surrounded by her lovable, if off-center, family and she has a boyfriend—sort of. Still, something's missing. Something tall, brooding and criminally good-looking—something like Liam Murphy.
When Posey was sixteen, the bad boy of Bellsford, New Hampshire, broke her heart. But now he's back, sending Posey's traitorous schoolgirl heart into overdrive once again. She should be giving him a wide berth, but it seems fate has other ideas .
I was apprehensive about even trying this out because of the negative reviews as well as the presence of children (which I barely tolerate) in relationships. I certainly understood Liam’s dilemma and his denial about the growing attraction that he has to Posey but I wished that a lot more had been written about him being able to let go of Emma.
Posey was one cool woman I thought; despite her inner-fangirl squealing, I really did like her loyalty, her dignified responses to difficult situations and the special brand of soft-heartedness she had for her adopted family. And she handled Liam’s rejection perfectly, with the right amount of caution and disbelief, minus the drama. Her HEA is deserved but there were times I thought Kristan Higgins was selling her short though.
