NOTICE: I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
One weekend together could change everything…
When her friend called to tell her about the funeral, Cassie wanted to say no. She had enough to handle with her own hollow existence. But she knew she should pay her respects to her old camp counselor…as long as her ex, Ben, wouldn’t be there.
Except Ben is there. Still gorgeous, still angry, and still able to penetrate her defenses with one intense stare. All the reasons they left each other in a flurry of heartache start to fall away over one long, snowy weekend.
But tough Cassie can’t truly open up to Ben when she knows confessing her secrets will leave her raw, defenseless. And the possibility of forever might not be enough to gamble on all the impossibilities of now.
I was excited to read this book, because I like books about camp romances and rekindling those romances. What I did not expect to find was that the camp in question was a wilderness camp for troubled youth. Everyone who attended it was either a drug addict, an alcoholic or someone involved in crime. That's not really my scene. The F-word was thrown around in every other sentence, and that's not my thing either. I don't mind the use of it if it's used sparingly and properly, but not as normal conversation. To say the characters were rough around the edges is an understatement.
If this book were marketed correctly, I think it would have an audience, but in this case, it was marketed falsely and I did not enjoy it one bit.
