I decided to give this book a try when I saw a review for it during January's TBR challenge. I can't remember who reviewed it and it wasn't until I already bought it that I realized it was the same author I'd had rather a negative reaction with a previous book by this author.

Rachel and Mac were good friends for most of high school, and lovers for one night. Now he's a single dad on the verge of being separated from his daughter, and she's a social worker intent on helping. They can't run from their pasts... Ms. O'Keefe handles the sometimes painful storylines beautifully, and you can feel the rawness of their emotions as you read. Will definitely be reading more of her stories.
Social worker heroine returns to home town after she takes over the case file regarding her high school BFF (and first lover) and his troubled pre-teen daughter. Emotionally draining story, a well done reunion theme, and liked the fact that author didn't sweep ethical issues under the rug.

Molly O'Keefe has always known she wanted to be a writer (except when she wanted to be a florist or a chef and the brief period of time when she considered being a cowgirl). And once she got her hands on some romances, she knew exactly what she wanted to write.

She published her first Harlequin romance at age 25 and hasn't looked back. She loves exploring every character's road towards happily ever
