When Hannah meets Sonny, she's irresistibly drawn to him: he's sexy and confident, but only in town on holiday. That's fine with Hannah - she doesn't do long-term relationships. And luckily for her, neither does Sonny. But before they can even so much as kiss, Sonny receives some shocking news and commits to making serious life changes - ones that can't and won't include romance.

With even a short fling now off the cards, Hannah and Sonny settle for being friends. But as summer hots up and their chemistry shows no signs of cooling, they start to question their reasons for shutting each other out.

Are they both too broken to find love? And if they tear down the walls between them, will they still like what's on the other side?

Paige Toon was written another simply stunning story. 

I was hooked almost immediately and loved the blatant initial chemistry between Hannah and Sonny in their first meeting and was as confused as Hannah when a couple of weeks later he was like a different person. 

From then they start to see each other about and accept that they can only be friends - especially since Sonny is pledging abstinence for reasons not entirely divulged initially.   Equally Hannah is obviously holding something back about her life, which is why she has never really wanted to settle anywhere. 

In fact what Hannah was hiding, was so unexpected, I literally guessed it about 5 pages before the reveal, and even then I didn't fully guess.  And Sonny, I'd not have pegged what is in his past either. But it was the finding out about both them that is where the book seems to go up another notch. 

I loved Hannah's new friendships and her dog Bertie is adorable too. The first canoeing scene is fabulous in that respect, so amusing. 

I really enjoyed seeing just how close Hannah and Sonny could become while still maintaining there was nothing between them!  It is just a heart warming story that I found a joy to read. 

I found this this, like all of this authors books, to be a quick, easy to engage with book, that I didn't want to put down. 

Thank you Simon & Schuster and Netgalley for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
