Corporate Maverick Zach Tanner returns to North Carolina to rebuild his dying friend's
resort. He's got the money, the power, and the will to transform Sweetbriar Springs into a premier spa for the glamorous, but he doesn't count on the woman he once loved…and lost…to handle the construction contract. Zach thought he'd buried his desire for Kennedy five years ago. He was wrong, and now he’s determined to satisfy his craving...

Construction company owner Kennedy Gibson is eager to restore Sweetbriar Springs, but when she realizes Zach is her new boss she's terrified he'll learn the truth about their breakup so long ago. She vowed never to hurt him again, but she can't deny the passion he reignites in her. She wants to believe she has a chance for a different future with him, but will her secret threaten to destroy their red-hot reunion?
This book made me cry - several times.  It takes a lot for a book to do that to me.  It was a good cry, an emotional cry, and I felt better when I was done.  Zach and Kennedy took me such an emotional roller coaster that I was exhausted at the end of the story.  It was almost too much.  Their history was full of so much pain for them to overcome that I still don't know how they managed to do it.

Kennedy is a tough as as mails construction worker that has taken over her father's company.  She's more at home in boots and jeans checking out a roof than anything else.  She has built up a wall around her heart after tragedy struck years ago, and she is determined to never let anyone in.  Zach wants to break down those walls, he just doesn't quite understand why they are there to begin with.

A lot of Zach and Kennedy's problems are because neither of them is completely honest with the other.  Their relationship is full of misunderstanding and pretending.  The truth is too hard for either of them to deal with at first.  It was an amazing story that is full of real life issues as two amazing people have to try and wade through them to find each other again.
