When old secrets and new passions come home to Rivers End…
LUCAS HEYES is a man with a plan. Move back to Rivers End. Fix his broken relationship with his ex-brother-in-law Isaac MacAllister, and be a good uncle to his niece Sara. Oh, and open Higher Ground–the coffee shop he’s been dreaming about for years. There’s only one hitch: Shannon MacAllister–Isaac’s younger sister–is back in town too, and living across the hall from him. Apparently, his time away did nothing to temper his feelings for her. After what happened five years ago, he’s sworn never to keep secrets from the MacAllisters again. Will Shannon convince him to break that promise and keep what they have between them a secret?
SHANNON MACALLISTER has one wish: to get kissed on New Year’s by a man nothing like her fiancé–make that ex-fiancé–before she tackles a new chapter in her life back in her hometown. She gets her wish. But along with it comes a whole whack of complicated. Her body wants Lucas, but her mind can’t help pointing out that while he’s sexy as hell, he’s a liar, and she’s not about to go back to that place. It’s bad enough that they share a family as well as an apartment building. The MacAllisters went through hell once before because of the Heyes family. Will Shannon trust enough to open her heart and risk trying again?

He has a dream to open his own coffee shop. Jenna buying a building then renting him a space and apartment helps Lucas to make his dream come true.
Lucas quickly discovers that the girl he has loved forever is his new neighbor. Problem is she hates him. How can he convince Shannon he is trustworthy? Can she forgive him for past transgressions?
Ok so this is book 2 in the Rivers End Romance series. I have to admit that it had some of what I thought was missing from the first book. The story is developing more. It seems as if each book is giving you a tiny bit of the story at a time. Like pieces of the puzzle falling into place one piece at a time. Each book tells more about the characters and their bond. The story is flowing nicely. Smooth as silk. Capturing your attention and making you fall in love. You can’t help but become invested and wanting to continue on the journey that is Rivers End. Let’s see what is in store for the folks at Rivers End in the next book Maybe.
