What a sweet story this was! At the beginning of the book, we see two wounded people who are just doing their best to get by from day to day. Both Cali and Grant carry burdens of guilt and lost hope. Even though their emotional obstacles come from very different events in their lives, they each could use a fresh start. And that is definitely what they get in From This Moment On.
I really enjoyed this first book of the Windswept Bay series. Grant and Cali had great chemistry and romantic tension. There were also some other fun characters who were introduced in this novel and I’m looking forward to reading their stories in future books. I thought that Grant’s journey of learning to live again and Cali’s journey of learning to trust again made for a beautiful love story.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Hurt by her failed marriage and dashed dreams, Cali Sinclair returns home to Windswept Bay with her heart wary and closed to the dreams of true love she so desperately wanted. Determined to never again risk her heart, she throws herself into running the family’s small boutique resort on the Florida coast, a place so full of romance that it’s a reminder every day of what she’ll never have. But when renowned artist Grant Ellington shows up to paint a mural on the wall of the resort, she’s swept away by her response to the artist. Suddenly, every time he looks at her, Cali finds it harder than she ever thought possible to keep her heart protected.
Grant Ellington loves his ranch, his horses, and his life as a sought-after artist. But after walking away from a plane crash that killed his best friend and the young pilot, he’s still struggling with survivor’s guilt as he heads to Windswept Bay. Painting a sea life mural at the resort started out as a favor to his neighbor, but one meeting with the beautiful Cali and he feels alive again—and determined to spend time on the moonlit beaches with her in his arms…
But, like him, Cali has her own emotional scars—can they learn to trust the love that sparks between them and move forward from this moment on?
