Chase Henson doesn’t play by the rules. He doesn’t let himself get attached, doesn’t stay in one place long enough to call anywhere home. So when he returns to the small town of Summer Hill for the first time in years, the last thing he expects to find is a reason to stay.
Sierra Belmont is lost. After a sudden loss that left her heart broken in a million pieces, Sierra is just barely getting by. Burying herself in work at Summer Hill’s only bookstore, all she wants to do is make it through another day.
And then Chase comes in to buy a book. Rumors that he’s dangerous fly through the town, but Sierra isn’t afraid of him. He might be the last person she should be with, but he’s the only one who understands the depth of her pain. For the first time, Chase stands still, fighting the desperation to mend Sierra’s broken heart.
Always running, the past has never had a chance to catch up to Chase. But there’s a first time for everything.
Colleen MC (The Book Lover) - “....captivating read and one that has made it into my list of 2017 favourites.”
Julia (The Romance Bibliophile) - “One Call Away was sweet, sexy, and utterly addicting, and one of my TOP FAVORITE romances of the year.”
Kelly (Kelly’s Nerdy Obsession) - “Emily writes beautifully. Her words are like a piece of art.”
Goodness, chapter one got me right in the feels! Sierra about broke my heart at the start of the story; plus it didn't help that when I started this book I'd just learned about a death in my family, so my emotions were all over the place. And Chase's situation? Minus the nomadic-type lifestyle, I could sympathize with his feelings of not really feeling like a part of his family. But once these two meet? Absolutely fantastic! Chase was so sweet with Sierra, gentle and patient, never pushing her out of her comfort zone, letting her set the pace of their blossoming friendship. The dialogue between them is sometimes sweet, sometimes hilarious and sometimes emotional. As we're all familiar with these stories, there's always a bit of mystery for one of the main characters that if their secrets were ever revealed, it could destroy any potential shot at happiness with their forever person.
