Title: Playing for Love at Deep Haven
Series: Enchanted Places, #1
Author: Katy Regnery
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Violet Smith and Zach Aubrey have history…
…the kind of history he regrets and she wishes she could forget.
She was the girl. The only girl. Ever.
Nine years have passed since heavy-metal songwriter, Zach, slept with, then walked away from, his best friend, Violet. But that doesn’t change the fact that he’s never gotten over her.
He shattered her heart.
Despite the years that have passed, chick-lit novelist, Violet, vividly recalls the pain of Zach’s rejection, and hates that she’s never been able to completely let go of the brooding boy who turned his back on her.
When the rocker and the writer find themselves thrown back together in a strange twist of fate, their chemistry is just as scorching as ever, but old wounds don’t just disappear. Even if Zach can explain why he walked away from Violet, can she find the courage to trust him again? Together they will discover if a love that broke them both is worth a second chance at forever.
Playing songs, playing for keeps…
…Playing for Love at Deep Haven
This was a sweet romance about reconnecting. I enjoyed the characters and the storyline had my attention from the beginning.
Zach and Violet are opposites in many ways but they also complement each other. I loved how both of their interests were different but meshed well with each other. They are both very different from each other when the reconnect nine years after what happened at Yale. Zach is heavily muscled, tattooed, pierced, and more confident. Violet became the total opposite of herself from Yale and behaves like some proper upper class lady that she’s not. Zach helps her to realize who she really is.
The characters were really enjoyable and the plot was nice and refreshing. There was of course drama (like any good romance) but it wasn’t over the top and I found myself reading it all in one sitting. This was a great book and I look forward to reading book 2. I’m giving this a 4 out of 5 books!
