This may be my favorite of the series, which is saying a lot because this series is sensational. (It can be read as a stand alone) No one ever forgets their first love, even if it never amounts to a relationship. It can be intense and real, despite the age of the people.
For Sienna, she fell in love with Dewayne when she was a freshman in high school and he helped her open her locker. For Dewayne, he constantly looked out for her, including pushing his brother to commit to a relationship with Sienna. A series of tragic life events occurred that separated Sienna and Dewayne for 6 years.
Now, she’s back in Sea Breeze with her 5 year-old son. Sienna is beautiful, independent, and an excellent mother. Dewayne is enamored with Sienna but has a lot of emotionally healing that is necessary to enter a relationship with Sienna. Dewayne has a heart of gold and needs to understand his value. Sienna needs to get-over a few of her hang-ups as well.
The melding of their emotional and sexual relationship is endearing with a perfect touch of scintillating. Behaving like a manwhore for years, Dewayne certainly brings a level of expertise to the table (or bed). I love the distinctions made between high-school romance and young adult romance.
This book is listed in the teen section of my library. If my teenagers were at the stage where they were dating, I would want them to read this book. And, if you’re beyond your teenage years, like myself, forget the teen label and enjoy this wonderfully romantic story!
