I love this book in so many ways she got caught up in the line of politics in DC he was quarterback for the pain he was trying to be a confidant and best friend but you kind of lost her way I think she was afraid to love him and she bought some repairs and I like the DC brought her and realize that you wanted to be with dylen no matter what. I would recommend this book to my family because we are all love story addicts even the happy ending we will look forward to this evening in the middle we want to know from the get them what happened and we don't cheat we read the whole book..
I love Indigo Bay! Stacy Claflin’s town on the water is extremely realistic & accurately portrays life in a small town. Everyone knows what everyone else is up to & the gossips always have a field day. When a favored son dies early, the entire town reaches out to support the family & assist in any way possible.
Evan was a small town boy that made it big. As an NFL player, the town enjoyed his success. Now he’s gone and his mom & sister, Brooke, are planning a benefit auction in his name. His best friend Dylan, also an NFL player, is back in town to help. Dylan & Brooke were sweethearts until Brooke broke up with him when he headed to college. Now they have to get past hurts, resentment & anger to work together to honor the man they both loved.
This was a story of second chances - in life & in love. Brooke thought she had the life she’d dreamed of until everything turned on her. The betrayal of someone she looked up to had her second guessing everything she thought was real & that she wanted. It took that betrayal to see who was always supporting her & who she could trust. Dylan was tired of Brooke pushing him away for his own good. He’s determined they’re done until she needed him more than ever. Can they find a way back to each other or will they allow circumstances to drive them further away?
Brooke Davenport is the top aide for a Senator. Dylan Manley is an NFL quarterback. Both are back in Indigo Bay to help with the preparations for a fundraiser dedicated to Evan Davenport, Brooke's older brother and Dylan's best friend. Evan died from complications of a football injury and has left a hole in both of their lives. Their desire to make this fundraiser a success is their remaining bond but at one time they meant everything to one another. When a family emergency calls Brooke's family out of town she and Dylan are left in charge. When Brooke's life starts to further fall apart, Dylan becomes her lifeline. Determined to make the most out of their second chance Dylan is willing to do anything to save Brooke and make it work between them this time around.
The Indigo Bay series is a delight. This is a story of regrets, sacrifices, and second chances. Dylan and Brooke are that couple that everyone knows are meant to be together. I enjoyed every second of their interactions. There is an undeniable sweetness to their story. I also loved the time spent in town gathering items for the fundraiser. It was the perfect excuse to drop in on several familiar locals. I look forward to more stories from the Bay in the future
Brooke works for a senator in Washington DC, but she comes home after the death of her brother to help with a benefit auction. Dylan is a pro football player & just happens to be Brooke's ex & her brother's best friend. He comes home to help with the auction & they get paired together to help. She doesn't want anything to do with him as she's focused on her career so she splits the list & tells him they will work independently. He still loves her & refuses to give up on trying to win her back.
Her life gets turned upside down when she is told that she's being charged with attempting to kill the Vice President & stealing money. She gets arrested & the only person, other than her family, who is on her side in Indigo Bay is Dylan. She needs him & wants him, but she does what she has always done--push him away for "his own good."
How can they come out of this with both of them getting exactly what they want?
This is another hit from Stacy. This is a unique storyline plot with lots of twists, turns & action. I couldn't put this one down. Her characters are always well-developed, and the characters in this are no exception. I love Indigo Bay. You need to put this on your TBR list.
👍👍4.5🌟stars 🌅💕 I found this beach town, 💞second chance romance to be original in plot, sweet, clean and a quick and enjoyable read. The hero was sweetly persistent, the heroine a bit bossy and intent on deciding what's best for all concerned, but they work well together in a crisis and, likable as they are, truly deserve a second (maybe even a third) chance at love. 😍
The story's focused, well-written and full of action and a bit of Washington political intrigue. 😊
I read a complimentary advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest review.
This is the first story I’ve read by Stacy Claflin, but it definitely won’t be the last. The characters are indeed complicated, yet colorful. Twists and turns. . . trouble and more trouble. . .
Brooke is determined to continue her career in D.C., until the worst happens. . . and then she’s even more determined to distance herself from her family and friends so they won’t suffer, too. Dylan is doing everything he can to help, but when sherries to refuse his help, what is he to do?
I really can’t say more; I don’t want to give away too much. But I hope I’ve said enough to pique your interest enough to pick up your own copy and read it for yourself. The story will most definitely hold your interest until the very end.
Second chance, friends/enemies to lovers – two of my favorite tropes. The plot is different and interesting. I love Dylan. He is such a good guy, and he bends over backwards to help Brooke, as well as friends, and the community. He is much nicer to Brooke than she deserves, in spite of how rude she is to him.
Unfortunately, Brooke was extremely annoying. She hits several of my pet peeve buttons: Doesn’t listen, doesn’t communicate well, makes false assumptions, is stubborn, makes one-sided decisions for others – going against their expressed wishes - then holds the results against THEM. The book would have been so much more enjoyable if only she’d had a better, more reasonable personality.
I received an advance reader copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving my honest opinion.
Poor Brooke, how much can 1 person take? Her brother’s death, her arrest, a possible frame job, and her love life. Life in a small town has its pros and cons, help from some, a listening ear, shoulder to cry on, friends like Maggie and Caroline are there. People also talk behind your back, are nosey, pretend to be a friend only to cause more problems, yes Elaine I’m talking about you. Dylan fits into the first category and his family as well as Brooke’s family. I just love Colton, her younger brother and his pup Rufus! I had an idea of who was the “villain” in the DC issue, it was good to know when it was revealed that I was right. I love the Indigo Bay series!
