First loves, we all got them. Mine is Slate Declan. He was kind, gentle, and caring. Still, he managed to break my heart. So I put miles between us, and eventually, my heart healed. I haven’t seen Slate in years, but a couple friends and I are going back to the Bayou for the summer. While I’m visiting my hometown, I’m going to look up Slate Declan. And I plan to break his heart, just as he did mine. I’ll remind him of what he has lost, and then I’ll prove to him that I’ve moved on. It should be real easy, right? Well, let me tell you, Slate Declan is not the same guy that I left behind. And there’s another problem. How do you break someone’s heart when they no longer have one?

Slate is a troubled young man who hasn’t had the best life, but there is still his very loving side very deep down. Rayna is a very sweet lovable character.

Even though they had been apart for 6 years, their connection was very much their from the first time they see each other again.

I found both characters to be very likable, Rayna was a very strong willed woman who was not taking no for an answer to help Slate, and Slate is a lovable troubled man.

When Rayna was down in the den with Slate for them 3 days, I felt like I could feel his pain, I felt very sorry for him. I did however, find that he would be totally clean after the 3 days to be very unlikely, but this is just a minor thing for me.

There is some steamy parts in the book that I do have to admit, did make me blush a little bit, but they are very well wrote.
