Description

They say you can never go home again...but when "Life Coach to the Stars" Jocelyn Bloom is embroiled in scandal, she has to try. She left Barefoot Bay -- and the boy next door who knows all her secrets -- years ago and never looked back. But nothing about the tiny island off the coast of Florida is quite how she remembers it, especially Will Palmer. He's even more gorgeous, more tempting, and still capable of turning her world inside out.

Will Palmer's life is in a holding pattern. A knee injury knocked him off the path to professional baseball stardom, and coaching jobs are hard to come by. In the meantime, he's been working construction, living in his parents' old house, and keeping an eye on his elderly neighbor. Will would like to think he'd look out for anyone suffering from Alzheimer's, but Guy Bloom is more than that -- he's the last connection to Jocelyn, the woman Will has loved since they were teenagers.

When Jocelyn comes home, the reunion doesn't go quite the way Will expected. Unprepared for the change in her father's personality, Jocelyn struggles to reconcile the abusive monster of her childhood with the sweet, confused man Will has grown close to. And even though the chemistry between Will and Jocelyn is as electrifying as ever, suddenly they're clashing about everything, especially her father's future. Will's capable hands can build almost anything, but can he forge a bridge to forgiveness for Jocelyn and her father? If not, the woman who's guided countless clients to happiness will never be able to escape the rainy days of her past for a sunny new future with the man who loves her.
