She’s a small town caterer, he’s a big city chef, but they don’t need a kitchen to make things sizzle...

Erin McDonald likes her simple life in her small town: no drama, no fuss, no uncertainty...until Jesse Hackett breezes back into town. Erin never quite got over how he left for the bright lights of the big city, and took her heart with him.

Jesse never regretted his decision to leave small town life behind and chase his big city dreams, but he’s always regretted leaving Erin behind. No woman has ever compared, and once he convinces Erin to let him touch her again, he’s never going to let her go.

Sparks fly and fires are rekindled, but the basic divide still remains: what really matters in life — location or love?

This was it, the moment when her past would collide with the present--a place she didn't want to be.

Eight years ago Jesse moved away to Sydney to broaden his horizons and leave farming life behind. But that meant he also left his first love Erin behind in the small town of Holbrook. One day, he appears at her catering business and sparks fly. They circle around their unresolved feelings, intense attraction and lust. They are powerless against each other. But their problem has always been location...and stubbornness. 

Jesse was her downfall, her Achilles heel and the reason for every single relationship failure since he left town, taking her broken heart with him.

I liked Erin. She was sassy and not afraid to say what was on her mind. She had been heart broken by his leaving and is terrified of getting hurt again. But finds Jesse is hard to resist. But she did drive me a bit crazy at times with her unwillingess to compromise. 

He was obviously still attracted to her physically and emotionally. He had made a life for himself as a chef/restaurant owner but his life was still missing something...or someone. He was sexy, successful, and charismatic. 

He hadn't moved on from Erin. Never would. But he couldn't look back either. 

Together they are perfectly suited. they have scorching chemistry, a shared past and strong feelings. But they are both so stubborn and are still fighting over the same things. 

"I want everything. I want you. I want us. I want a fucking future with you."
"But you want it on your terms."

Can they find a compromise or will they just hurt each other all over again?

I loved her feisty sister Karen and his meddling mom. This couple needed help being pushed towards each other and they were fun and straight forward. I would love to see Karen get her own story. 

This was a short novella, but it was a cute, sweet, sexy story. It was an engaging story of first love and second chances. I like Eden Summers writing style as it has humor and flows well. And I enjoyed getting both points of view from these head strong individuals. My biggest complaint is that it was so short so in turn was not as detailed as intense as it would be if it was a longer novel. 

Thanks to Eden Summers, Netgalley, and Harlequin Enterprises Australia for providing me with a review copy in exchange for an honest review.
