Conner Burke never expected Sofie Callahan to come back.
Where she’s been for the last two and half years is a mystery, and so is the reason she left in the first place. Now, though, she’s back in their hometown of Shelton Bay, South Carolina, at the same time Conner’s band Dirty B. is home on a tour break.
Sofie Callahan has spent the months since her father’s death avoiding anything to do with her hometown. But with her brother in Afghanistan, she has no choice but to return and sort out her father’s house, even if it means facing the boy she fell in love with and revealing the reason she left.
Conner has questions, and when his broken heart and her guilty one collide, Sofie has to start answering them. Their present is rocky, their future unknown. Only one thing is certain: Sofie’s daughter will change everything.

The characters didn't have as much development as I would have liked. It would have been cute to have a flashback in the first chapter or two or their lives when they were younger and still dating. I still am not sure who all is in the band and not positive they are all brothers. Character development and the details in the background were a little lacking but it wasn't a bad story. The author didn't really go into detail how a teenager moved out and raised a kid in a new city by herself. That's a lot of money and responsibility. I've read some books where they get pregnant and it ends with the baby being born and living happily ever after, but this is my first were it starts when she already has the kid. I listened to this as an audiobook and I wouldn't recommend that. The ladies baby talk was bad. I did enjoy the ending but the introduction of a baby to a new family just seems like it needs a bigger book that has a lot more detail about how each grandparent and all her numerous uncles are connecting to her. I liked the Popsicle ending as a hint they were getting used to each other. The best friend in the story though some times pushed that she was and other times you forgot she existed, she didn't have a constant role. I gave it three stars.
I started a blog so I can look back and see my life through the eyes of the books I read. A book a day keeps reality away!
