Nina Archer battles memories of a trauma that occurred twelve years ago... With plans to move to North Carolina, she hopes to separate herself from her mother, whose excessive drinking is becoming unbearable. Then suddenly, fate steps in to help her heal in a way she would never think possible. While running a race in Juno Beach, Nina finds herself next to a man whom she's immediately attracted to. Wes Ladner, the same man she dreamt about one year ago...
Wes is focused on his writing, and has no time for a woman. But the night before they met, he dreamt of Nina. Although they come from two very different worlds neither of them can deny the sparks that fly between them. As her time runs out to make a decision, Nina wonders if she's been given the chance to come to terms with her past, and accept a gift that some never receive - true love.
I was bit a torn by this read. I liked the premise of the book, a girl named Nina who is trying to start a new life away from her alcoholic mother. She keeps having these dreams of being assaulted and yelling for her mother for help yet she doesn’t come to help. We find out she was raped but she hasn’t really dealt with that in her life. She hasn’t really had much interaction with guys since then until she meets a new mystery guys who wants her for her and is willing to really be there for. While the book isn’t bad it just wasn’t what I thought it would be. I must admit I judged a book by its cover big time on this one. I thought I was going to get a fun beachy read but I got a novella focusing in some heavy subjects.
