Description:


Blake Smiley searched the country for just the right place to call home. The professional triathlete has traveled the world, but Thunder Point has what he needs to put down the roots he's never had. In the quiet coastal town he can focus on his training without distractions. Until he meets his new neighbors and everything changes. 


Lin Su Simmons and her teenage son, Charlie, are fixtures at Winnie Banks' house as Lin Su nurses Winnie through the realities of ALS. A single mother, Lin Su is proud of taking charge and never showing weakness. But she has her hands full coping with a job, debt and Charlie's health issues. And Charlie is asking questions about his family history—questions she doesn't want to answer. 



When Charlie enlists Blake's help to escape his overprotective mother, Lin Su resents the interference in her life. But Blake is certain he can break through her barriers and be the man she and Charlie need. When faced with a terrible situation, Blake comes to the rescue, and Lin Su realizes he just might be the man of her dreams. Together, they recognize that family is who you choose it to be.

My Thoughts: 

Blake Smiley a cyclist moves into Thunder Point to set up roots somewhere.  There he meets Charlie whose mom works for the woman across the street.  Something draws both Charlie and Lin Su to Blake.  Lin Su has had a lot of ups and downs in her life being adopted by an American family and she has memories about her mother and wants to know the truth.  She also keeps herself and Charlie safe at all costs and doesn't trust many outsiders.

Blake wants to build something with Lin Su but getting through her tough exterior really makes it difficult as they battle the heat between them eventually they get to where they want to be.

This was a great story about love, family and close friends.  Lin Su really has a long way to go she has so many insecurities especially associated with her adopted family and how she came to live with them along with Charlie's father.  

I really loved reading about Winnie the elderly lady and Charlie as he grows and of course Lin Su and Blake who have alot to get through.  They both have vastly different up bringings.  This greatly impacts how they deal with things and overcome things!  I love going back to Thunder Point such a great town I love to visit time and again!
