Publisher's Summary

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?

Such a good story

I really appreciated that this wasn't your typical love story where two extremely hot people couldn't keep their hands off each other. The love in this novel had depth, reaffirming that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and love and lust are not synonymous.

Oh the melodrama!

All a broken man needs is a selfless, good woman with a heart of gold to teach him how to trust and love. Ugh! What a cliche! If I didn’t know better(and if there weren’t premarital sex scenes) I would think this had been written decades ago.
The narrator was ok on the female voice, but her male voice and British accents were weak.

predictable and boring

it's your typical beauty and the beast. except he was only a beast briefly and then he totally let her in. he pondered where all these unknown feelings came from. I'm only 2 hrs in. I'm not going to waste 7 more hours on this book.

Not so much

Of course MM writes beautifully but keeping these lovers apart for so long was torture. Had to fast forward through it. I loved Megan. She was so fine. The relationship between Zachary and her best friend could have been more extensive. I loved their banter.

Love can help heal pain.

This book is beautiful. So much beauty and pain in this story. The way they heal each other and find their happily ever after, had me in tears at times. More readers should read this book.

Brooding, emotional tornado

A sensitive and knowledgeable approach to a damaged man, who gets a chance at redemption if he can allow himself to step into the light.

I really enjoyed this story because there was a depth of character, emotional storms and the message of self value was loud and clear. Well done to the author, for writing this with sensitivity.
