Tori Aickens understands more than most what it feels like to lose the ones you love, but she also understands how to survive that kind of pain by leaving it all behind and never looking back. Unfortunately, while she’s busy never looking back, she walks straight ahead to find her fiancé cheating on her with a grin on his face.
It isn’t until her father passes away, that Tori decides to return to Fireweed Island for the summer. Coming back to a place where ghosts lurk in even the happiest of memories makes her face the heartache of her past she’s done so well at leaving behind. It isn’t until Gabby introduces Mason Rhodes to her that she realizes kindness can exist in this overly brutal thing called life, and maybe not all men are meant to self-destruct, or she’s just been sniffing in too much ocean air.
Either way, spending time with Mason on Fireweed Island leaves Tori questioning if the carefully constructed life she left behind in New York is one she even wants any longer. Mason is determined to break down Tori’s barriers, but she’s not sure she’s strong enough to let go of her past and imagine a future that risks her heart getting broken again, and she wonders if there’s such a thing as the right love at the wrong time…
Fans of the Beyond Love Series will enjoy seeing old friends and reading about fresh characters in this carefully woven tale of love, heartache, and new beginnings.
He came in for one last kiss, and I realized that finding love wasn't what I'd planned, but it appeared to be on fate's horizon and fate's name was Mason Rhodes.
Tori is only on Fireweed Island for the summer. She is to teach summer school and get her family's home fixed up and ready to sell. That's it. She has no time for a summer fling. And lord knows her heart cannot handle another heartbreak. At least that is what she keeps chanting through her mind as she works alongside Mason day after day fixing the house and growing closer to him. Mercy. This is going to be one heck of a summer.
We finally get Mason!! Fans of the Beyond Love series have been waiting a long time for this book to happen. At least it feels like a long time to me. And let me tell you...it was worth the wait. The best part is knowing that Tori is Mason’s perfect person. Together they make a beautiful couple. It is just going to take some time to get Tori to realize it. As a reader you just want so badly to smack Tori and tell her to open her frickin' eyes at what is standing before her. But it is something she is going to have to learn herself.
This book has a wonderful storyline and fabulous characters: old and new. Yes, it is always a joy to see the old characters we have come to know and love from the Beyond Love series. But I am super excited for the new ones we are introduced to as well. They made the storyline pop and I look forward to seeing them once again in future books.
One more thing before I go…even if you haven’t read the Beyond Love series, don’t fret. Bolton writes a wonderful book that you are sure to love and not feel like you’re missing out on something. But I most definitely recommend you read that series too. You will love it. I promise. FINDING LOVE IN FORGOTTEN COVE is another 5 Star read for me! Way to go, Bolton! I absolutely loved it!
