Zach Monroe has made mistakes--big ones. The worst left the girl he loved injured, and his own brother barely speaking to him. It was a night Zach won't let himself forget, even when the girl in question--perfect, polished Sophie Allen--walks back into his life. A realtor, Sophie's brought an offer for their sister's dilapidated Civil War era property. But Zach's determined to renovate the rambling old place himself--though he longs to rebuild Sophie's trust in him
A business deal isn't how Sophie wanted to approach Zach after all this time, but he won't let anyone get personal. She can't deny that the accident changed her life in irreparable ways. But watching gruff, quiet Zach beat himself up year after year hurts too. The wounded boy she once adored needed love, and the man is no different. Now Sophie will need every bit of her resolve to convince Zach to let love heal them both

Bennett sets up a formidable array of obstacles for two reunited lovers in this solid contemporary. When Zach Monroe and his brothers are summoned to Sophie Allen’s realty office to discuss options for their sister’s estate, Zach is forced to confront demons from his past, including his past relationship with Sophie. Zach’s guilt when he sees Sophie’s limp is aggravated by frustration and anger as he argues with his brothers and local officials, hoping to maintain ownership of his sister’s property in Haven, Ga., and make her dream come true. But Zach’s real battle is against his charged emotions for Sophie, which are fanned by her own still-smoldering attraction to him. He believes that if he succumbs to his decade-long desire for her, he’ll further tarnish her life The narrative is heavy-handed at times, reiterating obstacles rather than letting them come up naturally in dialogue and action, but shifting perspectives and plot developments keep the pace flowing steadily. Bennett also effectively creates heat between Zach and Sophie with sensual but non-explicit descriptions. Agent: Elaine Spencer, Knight Agency. (Apr.)
