In the Reunion, a runaway groom returns home to his family and his former fiancée. It has been five years since Ethan Harrington has been heard from in his hometown of Shade Bay. As expected, he has a lot of redeeming to do, especially with Ebony Evans. She is his true love that he left without explanation just before the wedding.
Ebony has been going through feelings of abandonment, shame, and anger for five years. However, she is determined to move on with her life by finally leaving her painful memories at Shade Bay. In a few weeks, she is to move to Africa to do volunteer work with the Church.
When the two come face to face, the attraction is as strong as ever. However, Ebony cannot forgive him and wants nothing to do him. Ethan is determined to show her that he is a changed man. No longer is he controlled by his volatile anger that caused many physical altercations in the town. Ethan wants Ebony’s forgiveness and another chance to win her back.
This story flowed well and was easy to read. The description of the scenery of the seaside town of Shade Bay was well done. It made me feel as though I was there. Ethan was an alpha male. He was wealthy and physically attractive. However, I wish he were more assertive in dealing with his meddling ex-girlfriend, Cassandra, especially when she terrorizes Ebony.
Ebony’s self esteem was low. Although she had been abandoned by her parents as a baby and then Ethan five years ago, she is quite the confident and saucy vixen in the bedroom. She asks for exactly what she wants, and Ethan is happy to give it to her. However, the super charged sex scenes do not match the personality of the soft-spoken Christian heroine.
The ending was satisfying. Ebony finally forgives Ethan and agrees to marry him. There were some good action scenes. However, the issue with the crazy ex-girlfriend, Cassandra was never really resolved. She just disappeared after leaving Shade Bay. Overall, this was an average read.
