The sound of the ocean, the crash of the waves as they kick up against the sand and rocks—these are the only sounds Megan Greene wants to hear. She wants to leave the rest of the world behind, and find some peace. The offer of a private house on the beach, set in a small town in Maine, is perfect. Time to think—to be by herself. It’s all she wants. It’s the escape she needs.

Until she stumbles across the painting that seems to echo her own chaotic mindset. Until she meets the unfriendly artist behind the stormy painting and discovers his secrets.

All Zachary Adams wants is to be left alone. His canvases and the unending scope of the ocean and sand are his life. They direct him—fill his hours. Bring him focus.

Until she enters his life. She dredges up memories of the past—the haunting images he has hidden for years; the fears he has never shared. A story he keeps buried below the surface.

Can she make him see what he is missing? Can he trust her enough to believe?

Together they embark on a journey where their pasts collide and threaten to tear them apart. Will their fragile bond hold or wash away with the ebbing tide?

I like to listen to audiobooks now, it helps me get to all the books that I normally can’t right away with me working so much. I work seven days a week and only get to read at night when I’m not cooking or at the gym. I found this audiobook when I was browsing the app Hoopla, which if you haven’t gotten that app yet, you definitely should!

Lately, every time I pick out a romance, I pick one that I never heard of the author before. I want to read and review books that aren’t super popular so that way authors names can get out there. Melanie Moreland wrote this very well. And from the beginning, I was hooked.

This was a great romance with a bunch of twists. So many problems that shocked me, and made me think about all the problems and insecurities people have that no one knows about. The only part of this book that I was disappointed in, was the ending. it skipped ahead pretty fast and was predictable.

I liked the romance a lot like I always say I’m a sucker for romance. It was a cute story full of friendship and love. I even caught myself in tears a couple times. I rate this book 4/5 stars.

New York Times/USA Today bestselling author Melanie Moreland, lives a happy and content life in a quiet area of Ontario with her beloved husband of twenty-seven plus years and their rescue cat Amber. Nothing means more to her than her friends and family, and she cherishes every moment spent with them.
While seriously addicted to coffee, and highly challenged with all things computer-related and technical, she relishes baking, cooking, and trying new recipes for people to sample. She loves to throw dinner parties, and also enjoys traveling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always the best part of any trip.
Melanie delights in a good romance story with some bumps along the way but is a true believer in happily ever after. When her head isn’t buried in a book, it is bent over a keyboard, furiously typing away as her characters dictate their creative storylines to her, often with a large glass of wine keeping her company.
