Cutter Forsyth was a hell-raiser in his youth. He’s returned to his Georgia hometown as a noted and jaded artist, contracted to create a special sculpture to honor the Cherokee. He was Gemma Summerhill’s big crush. When they see each other again, their passionate feelings for reach other come rushing back. Cutter, however, has no interest in sticking around, and Gemma has no interest in living anywhere else. He disappeared on her before and there is every reason to believe he’ll do it again. Yet, Gemma also believes that “home” is where loves grows, and her love for Cutter knows no bounds.

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
I enjoyed this, it just didn't blow me away.
It's a lovely sweet, small town, second chance (kinda) romance, with some steam, but not too much.
Cutter's art sounded interesting, and I googled nuts and bolts art to see what came up, and I loved them!
I liked that Gemma still held her crush for Cutter, even after all this time. And Cutter too, to an extent, held his feelings for Gemma but it takes time for him to fully admit to them and give in.
I loved that, while Cutter and his brothers appeared to have everything, being born into wealth, it's clear that money doesn't really buy you happiness.
It was a nice book, and someone will love but I couldn't, and for that I'm sorry!
