Last Summer

Last Summer - Theresa Weir Bad boy actor, Johnnie Irish, returns to his hometown where the past haunts him. Straight laced, widowed school teacher, Maggie, couldn't give a rat's *ss about his super star status. She knows he is bad news and does not want to be another notch on his bed post. After several encounters, there is more to Johnnie than she thought but she is still weary of trusting him.So, this is more than a cute, little, light contemporary romance. This book actually surprised me with some deep issues. Johnnie's past was not pretty and at times, straight up sad! =( Because of his past, he has a tough exterior that is hard to break. But inside, he is full of insecurities. His relationship with Maggie was not easy but I'm glad these two were able to finally reach the point of trusting each other. Besides this story being a romance, it is also a story about a tortured man coming to terms with himself and his past. The journey through self discovery wasn't smooth but I'm glad Maggie was there when he needed her and vice versa. This is the first book I've read from this author and it won't be my last.3.5 Stars
