When Elaine was 16 years old she fell in love with Johnny. They had to keep everything secret because she was too young for him. For a year the two met in secret, until he left town fearing he would do something that they would both regret and he would end up hurting the girl he loved.
Johnny didn't go back to his small town home after leaving, because he couldn't face her. When his mother calls him needing him to come home because his father is ill and she needs his help he sees this as his chance to make everything right.
Now he's back and Johnny wants to be with Elaine so bad, but he can't because once again he doesn't want to ruin Elaine's school teacher reputation.
This is a beautiful love story about two people who love each other but can't get around the circumstances of living in a small town. There are no sex scenes in this book, and at times the hero and the heroine aren't even together, but you can feel the love the two have pour through the pages. Very well written, can't wait to check out the rest of the series.
Love can’t flourish in the dark.
Fifteen years ago, Elaine fell in love with Johnny McMannus, the local bad boy. He was nineteen and she was jailbait. To keep them both out of trouble, Johnny left town.
But years later his father’s heart attack brings him back to run the family garage. Hoping to reconnect with Elaine, Johnny has to first fix the mess his parent’s alcoholism has made of things.
Before Johnny can deserve Elaine, he has to salvage his family’s reputation, save their home, and
rescue the business.
Too bad Elaine doesn’t want to be deserved. She wants to be loved. She never got over
Johnny and she’s done sneaking around with him as they had before. If he can’t love her in public,
to her way of thinking he doesn’t love her enough.
