Goodreads Summary: When Quinnlan Reynolds left home at 18, she escaped her small, Georgia town and her suffocating upbringing. She started a new life as a ballerina, and tasted freedom for the first time. But four years later, her first visit home turns tragic. Reeling, Quinn tries to piece her life back together again. But doing so is easier said than done when sexy Jonah Walker saunters back into her life.
Quinn shattered Jonah’s heart once, so getting involved with her isn’t something he’s sure he’s ready to do again. He became someone he didn’t recognize when he left home. He’s spent the last years burying his pain by keeping everyone in his life at arm’s length. Now he needs to get to know his family again, and finally become who he wants to be.
But neither Quinn or Jonah can stay away from each other, especially when old feelings resurface. Something is pulling them back together, and they can’t deny their chemistry for long. One Georgia summer could change both their lives forever, if they can work through their past to have a future together.
I <3 stories like this! The romance sounds so sweet, and I'm curious to see how Quinn and Jonah will overcome their past history together. Want a little taste of the writing?
Excerpt: "Quinn?” Jonah stalled when he got within a few feet of her, and Quinn’s heart kicked into a faster rhythm. He was wearing sunglasses, so she couldn’t see if his smile extended to his eyes, but his gaze held steady on hers. “What are you - I mean hi."
“H-hey.” Clearing her throat, Quinn glanced between him and Ethan; Ethan still looked completely at ease, but Jonah seemed…different. She focused on him, noticing the tense set to his broad shoulders as he crossed his arms, then dropped them. “We were looking for uh…” Jonah’s eyes were on her again, and anything else she’d meant to say vanished as he finally took off his shades.
His eyes were smiling. At her. A slow, all-too-familiar flutter tickled at her stomach.
*Sigh* You've gotta love a man who can smile with his eyes :-). This book sounds right up my alley. Molli is such a sweet person (and an excellent book blogger herself), and I think her NA is going to be fantastic. You can learn more about Molli here, here, and here :).
