When you're lost sometimes the only place you can go is home.
Broken over the death of her fiancé, Molly leaves law school to return to her childhood home inNorth Carolina. Expecting to lay low until she can figure out what else to do with her life, Mollyfinds herself in the arms of her high school sweetheart Ben, the boy who represents everythingfrom the past she tried to leave behind.
Looking for an escape, what she finds is a way back to the girl she almost forgot existed and afuture she never dreamed possible.

Thoughts:Molly feels guilt over the death of her fiancé; she thinks it's her fault. In an effort to regroup and distance herself from Boston, she returns home. She never realizes that this is where she must face the demons she left behind in Boston and the boy she left heart broken when she ran away to college. Ben still loves Molly and he is determined that if he gets her back, there is no letting go this time. However, Molly sees herself as damaged goods; everything she holds dear becomes ruined. She feels like she doesn't deserve Ben's love and that she will only cause him pain. As much as they try, these two are like magnets and when they come together they ignite a fire that can't be tamed. Can Ben help Molly heal the wounds that she's buried deep inside or will his hope at rekindling their love fizzle out? I loved the romantic interactions between Ben and Molly; they balance one another out well. The story unfolds nicely and paces steadily throughout never really lagging. I would recommend this to someone looking for a quick read with bit of romance. I was initially drawn to this book by the cover, which is absolutely beautiful. It made me wonder what her story was and she looks like she has secrets to share. Any who, great story about love, loss and how sometimes the past can be the key to your future.
