Hearts meant to love will always find each other.
Mia DeAngelis knew it was time to make a change. Wanting to provide a better life for herself and her ten-year-old nephew, Ben, she took a chance and moved to the small town of Compass Cove. Now, the college librarian is adapting to a new job, a new town, and living with her feisty seventy-eight-year-old grandmother. Mia is determined to make it all work, hoping the coastal hamlet gives both her and Ben the sense of community, family and belonging they both want so much.
Adam Miller, a retired NFL quarterback, has come back to Compass Cove to start over after an injury puts an end to his high-octane life. Settling into the small town routine proves to be a challenge, but his job coaching at Jennings College gives him a sense of purpose while keeping him connected to the game he loves.
There couldn’t be two people more different, yet the minute they meet, friends and family have no doubt they belong together. Now if Mia and Adam can only get out of their own way and embrace a little hometown magic, they can find the happy ever after they both crave…
Their first game was three days away, and the offensive line had more holes than a cheap hooker’s panties.
Mia, you’re a knockout. Women spend thousands of dollars to have boobs like those… If I were twenty years younger, I’d go buy myself a pair.
By the end of the evening, he’d decided they’d go as Hamlet and Ophelia, which disturbed her more than a little since Ophelia’s story didn’t end so well.
Ellen was still going. She was like the Energizer Bunny of bitches.
The ever-clever Jeannie Moon started this story with a soupcon of mystical and romantic folklore about a coastal small town and the oddly behaving compass for which it was named; all of which I found sweet, captivating, soul pleasing, creative, and totally charming. I enjoyed this delightful and engaging story start to finish and I adored the endearing characters of Adam and Mia so much that I wanted to befriend them; I would even eat cookies and do tea with their grandmothers. Laced with family drama, amusing observations, and a few bits of steamy sensuality; the storyline was entertaining and relatable with heart-squeezes, exposed secrets, and unexpected twists along the way. I am already eager for a return trip.
