Meet Dakota & Shane in this standalone second romance!

A gripping standalone adult contemporary romance about finding yourself while taking a second chance at your first love...

Dakota Nakos was always the resilient, strong-willed achiever. But when her father dies and she's entrusted with the family's casino, she feels vulnerable, scared, and more than a little emotional --not exactly the best time to see an old lover she's never really gotten over.

Dakota once meant the world to Shane Garrity. Then suddenly he left town to train as a U.S. Marshal, and their love for each other crashed into a memory. Now he's come home for her father's funeral, and one look at the girl he left behind stirs up both memories and regrets, and reignites a fire he feared he'd lost forever.

Dakota may be the same driven girl she always was, but she's also changed in ways neither could have anticipated. She's not just a young woman searching for own identity in the Native American community in which she was raised, but one questioning her new life outside her father's shadow. Above all she wonders if Shane can push past her weakened defenses to rekindle what they once had, or whether the intense blaze between them will ultimately reduce her heart to ashes

She closed her eyes on a sharp breath, looking soft and vulnerable.
Because I couldn’t help myself, my fingers left her chair and glided up her arms to her neck. Her breaths released from her lips in short pants and I considered touching my mouth to hers.
Would she let me? Would she want me to?
“Yes,” she whispered, the heat of her breaths warming the tiny sliver of air still lingering between us. “But that’s in the past. We had our chance and I . . . I got over you. So let’s leave it there.”
My stomach completely flipped over. “You got over me?”
I studied her lips edge to edge, and they trembled in response. She was so not over me.
I didn’t know what the hell was driving me. I just knew I didn’t like hearing those words. Not one damn bit.
“You got over me?” I growled as my fingers gripped the nape of her neck.
My lips brushed the line of her jaw and she shivered.
“Shane, don’t. Please,” she mumbled, her hands at my chest. “You’ll just leave again and I can’t . . . I can’t . . .”
She sounded so helpless and sad. For the first time she was allowing me to see exactly what she might have been feeling, might’ve gone through five years ago. She sounded wrecked—as wrecked as I had been.
My lips trailed to her ear. “Angel.”

My Review

I really enjoyed this novel: an interesting storyline, a beautiful love story, a mystery to be solved.
Dakota has suddenly lost her father in a robbery. Her family is managing a casino and now are her and her mother that should take care of it beacuase her brother has decided to follow his dreams and to take another route. The Native American community does not want that they continue their activities: Dakota's mother is Dutch, a stranger, and can't take care of a business to which part of the earnings should go to education of Native American children. They try to obstruct them as they can and to convince them to sell. The only one who can help them is Shane, a former boyfriend of Dakota and best friend of her brother. When he learned of the terrible loss, returned immediately at home, to be near his friend but especially the girl who has never forgotten. Among them are many outstanding things, they are left without ever really talk about what they felt. He had to take a course to become a US Marshal and had to stay far away from home. Dakota let him go without a fight. Now only he can help her find out who has done evil to her father and to defend her from those who doesn't want to manage her father's business.
Dakota is a strong girl, determined, wants at all costs to prove to be able to replace her father. She's also headstrong and proud and this is what keeps her from finding a good relationship with the ex-boyfriend. Shane has carried out professionally, is a valuable agent and a guy you can trust. Just sees again Dakota, he knows he has always loved only her. It 's very strong chemistry between them, it is very nice to read their meetings.
It 's a pleasant read, compelling, with some twists and lots of love and passion.
I have received this book from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
